I have a feeling it'll be the same deal as Hyrule Warriors in regards to publishing, with Koei Tecmo handling it in Japan, and Nintendo handling it outside of Japan.

We know nothing about FE Warriors yet and they said this direct will have new info on FE Warriors. That means we're getting new info on FE Warriors. That's enough for me even if nothing else.

I feel this is the more likely the situation. With HW the reveals were always via Famitsu and/or a Koei released youtube video.

I hope Nintendo sheds some light on its Fire Emblem mobile game, which was delayed last year along with Animal Crossing in order to get Super Mario Run out first (according to Polygon http://www.polygon.com/2016/9/7/1283...roid-ios-delay) Nintendo also went on to say that both games would be out by the end of March as well. I was kind of hoping that Nintendo was going to release a Mobile and a Switch version of Fire Emblem with some features that connected them together.

Fates is still missing the third round of DLC Japan got so a Switch version probably forces them to finally bring it.

That has to be a mistake and/or oversight. The rest of the info for Revelations right under "for Switch" relates to the 3DS and release date last year.

Not interested in 3DS ports so I don't care if Fates is getting ported or not.

All I care is Warriors, and we are getting just that so I'm happy. I just hope they show more than a few seconds of gameplay.

Two games

The game at the switch Reveal was fire emblem warriors, and presumingly a Fire Emblem Fates both edition will be announced Wednesday.

FE Warriors is a new thing. Fates for Switch appears to be a quick port.

This could just be a mistake in the site's source code, but it makes also sense to do from Nintendo's side. IS re-releases Fates again, in HD, with all the routes and DLC included for, what - $60US? There's no boxed version of Fates called Revelation...

Could this just be the "third version" and not a complete edition? (I know that Revelation was already the third version, but I'm just talking about how Pokémon does their releases.) Like how Pokémon does it? I would hope a Switch port would have them all on one cart at $40 or maybe $60.

The other game was an original spinoff and this if real is a port of the most recent mainline game.

Nice.

The three different versions of FE Fates for the 3DS put me off on purchasing it, a possible Switch version with everything included sounds great.

Might skip it just because I haven't been feeling the 3DS games, then again a bad FE is still a good RPG. I guess I will know if I'll get it when it comes out.

Still interesting though, can't say I expected a port of that to Switch despite it not seeming like a bad idea given how much it sold.

So maybe it is

2. FE Revelations Switch, complete package, release date (Between March and June)
3. FE Warriors gameplay, release window (lholiday 2017)

Oh ok thanks guys. I was worried I was excited for no reason. Can't wait for the direct.

I wonder if the 3DS game is real if we will get it for launch or close too. I haven't had the time to buy/play Fates, but if it's close to launch, that would be awesome. Something to play after Zelda.

I checked the Farming Simulator for Switch page as a lark, and 'Animal Crossing: New Leaf - Welcome amiibo for nintendo switch' came up.

This is a really good way to fuck with people if you're so inclined.

I'm leaning on the FE Direct being FE Warriors, FE Fates DLC and maybe VC releases of some kind, if it's just America only.

They'll probably save the reveal of his Amiibo for whenever the Smash 4 port gets announced. That said, we could get a tease of it like what PlatinumGames did with the Bayonetta Amiibo.

Actually, throwing both Male & Female Corrin into a two-pack would be a great way to get a string of alternate Smash 4 Amiibos going. Everyone wins in this scenario......except our wallets.

I realize that to many fans, the end result is far removed from its crossover sources, but it'd be amazing if they revealed a Tokyo Mirage Sessions Switch port.

I dunno, I wouldn't expect much of anything, particularly if Japan doesn't have anything. While Fire Emblem certainly has increased in popularity worldwide, I highly doubt they'd announce anything outside of Japan first.

Looks like there is none. Would they really talk about FE Warriors and not relay it to the Japanese audience? FE is big in Japan.

Now I know the FE Direct was announced during the FE Warriors segment of Treehouse which makes you believe it will be there. Still weird though to leave Japan out.

Dream direct while being a tiny bit realistic

- Show off gameplay + characters of Fire Emblem Warriors

- Show off Fire EMblem Mobile

- Reveal release date of last DLC for Fire Emblem Fates

- A teaser trailer for the next mainline FE for Switch.
