Rumor: New Fire Emblem Game Has Been Finished for More Than a Year

new Fire Emblem game finished complete over more than a year Intelligent Systems Gust Koei Tecmo red blue hair dragon mother not remake Nintendo Switch

Fire Emblem: Three Houses has sold more than 3 million copies since launching on Nintendo Switch in 2019, making it the highest-selling entry in the franchise. Three Houses has a Musou spinoff in the works from Koei Tecmo and Omega Force, Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes, but Nintendo and developer Intelligent Systems have yet to announce a new mainline tactical entry. However, at Famiboards, industry insider Emily Rogers has shared several major alleged details of a new Fire Emblem game for Switch, including a claim that the game has been finished with development for more than a year already.

Rogers stated that this is a brand new game and not a remake, which is noteworthy because previous rumors had claimed a remake was in development. Furthermore, the game is reportedly a collaboration among Intelligent Systems, Koei Tecmo, and Gust; Gust is a part of Koei Tecmo and the developer of the Atelier series of RPGs. The main character apparently has red and blue hair, and the character’s mother is a dragon. There is allegedly a new “Emblems” mechanic that lets you summon characters from the franchise’s past into your team. This new Fire Emblem game was originally planned to launch for the 30th anniversary of the franchise (2020), but that did not happen. Nonetheless, the game is apparently finished and has been for more than a year.

That is all of the new alleged information. Rogers has a solid track record, but as always, details can change and you shouldn’t go betting your life on the accuracy of this information. Interestingly, Rogers also claimed last year that a Metroid Prime Switch remaster is finished with development.
