The new “Emblems” mechanism was mentioned as a gameplay trick. With this it should be possible for the players to call characters from previous Fire Emblem games into battle. This might fit the original idea of an Anniversary title. The new Fire Emblem title has not yet been officially announced. It is currently being speculated that there could be a Nintendo Direct in June. On this, Nintendo would have the opportunity to confirm the leak with an announcement.
However, since not even the Direct itself has been confirmed so far, fans of the series have to be patient. The last part, Fire Emblem: Three Houses (buy now €51.99), was published in 2019 and was very well received at the time, including by our editorial team. Accordingly, the anticipation of a new part of the popular strategy series would be great.
