Watch live as Nintendo unveils its mobile Fire Emblem game

Nintendo Direct Fire Emblem

Less than a week after introducing the world to the Switch, Nintendo will host a Nintendo Direct presentation on Wednesday at 5 PM ET to discuss upcoming titles in the Fire Emblem series. Beyond that, we don’t know specifically what the company plans to discuss, although we can make some educated guesses.

During the Switch live event last week, Nintendo gave us our first glimpse at Fire Emblem Warriors for the Switch. Similar to Hyrule Warriors and Dragon Quest Warriors before it, Fire Emblem Warriors will combine the world and characters of the Fire Emblem series with the gameplay from Koei Tecmo’s popular Dynasty Warriors series. Considering Nintendo is focusing an entire Direct on Fire Emblem, we hope to see some actual gameplay from the crossover title, rather than another CG teaser.

In addition to Fire Emblem Warrior news, we also expect to learn more about the previously announced Fire Emblem mobile title. Last year, Nintendo revealed that it would develop mobile games based on multiple established series, including Mario, Fire Emblem and Animal Crossing. While all three games were expected to arrive on mobile platforms before the end of 2016, Nintendo ended up delaying Fire Emblem and Animal Crossing to early 2017 in order to focus on getting Super Mario Run out the door.

Providing there are no further delays, both the Fire Emblem and Animal Crossing mobile titles should be ready to roll out by March, which makes this the perfect opportunity to show off Fire Emblem on iOS (and possible Android) for the first time on Wednesday night.
