We May Get A Second Fire Emblem Game This Year

A second Fire Emblem game may be making its debut later this year. A new report from an industry insider claims that another game in the series is currently in development over at Intelligent Systems. While no other information is provided, the title appears to be close to completion and could be released later this year.

This report comes from Emily Rogers over on Famiboards.com, a forum for Nintendo news. According to Rogers, this game is a “wild card” that could be an “October 2022 release or an early 2023 release”. She went on to say that “I’ve mentioned before that this game is nearly finished with its development” and that Intelligent Systems has “over 3+ years to develop this game and they received assistance from a support studio”.

Of course, with Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes planning to launch later in June many are skeptical that two titles in the series will release the same year. However, Rogers is ready for the counterargument by reminding folks that back in 2017 “Nintendo released two Fire Emblem games: Fire Emblem Warriors and Fire Emblem Echoes. Who says history can’t repeat itself?”.

Although, as she admits, it wouldn’t be unheard of for Nintendo’s marketing team to feel their upcoming Fall lineup is packed enough and move this new Fire Emblem game into early 2023. After all, Nintendo has Xenoblade and the highly anticipated Bayonetta 3 hitting shelves later this year.

While Omega Force and Team Ninja will be handling the upcoming Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes, Intelligent Systems has handled most of the titles in the series. Their last endeavor, Fire Emblem: Three Houses, was a success reaching the top of the sales chart after releasing in 2019. It would also go on to be the best-reviewed standalone RPG of that year.

For now, there is no confirmation whether Rogers' information is correct. Although the insider does have a track record of correctly reporting Nintendo news. Only time will tell how many tactical role-playing games we will get this year.
