People on Reddit have translated the text on Lucina's new lance in FE Heroes, which translates to "Anime project success"

There was an FE anime before in 1996, but the series has obviously changed a lot since then. Is it happening?

If they want to. Go for it.

The series is more popular then ever and a successful mobile title. Might as well tip your toes again.

Edit: didn't notice it was on the Lance. Might be reaching

I am down for one. I never saw the original, but that was only a 2-part OVA if I am not mistaken.

Also, look no further than Arslan Senki. The anime adaption is basicall "Fire Emblem the anime" or as close as one we've gotten so far.

Well, asking for Fate budget ufotable isn't that realistic, but I wouldn't mind at all an adaptation as good as God Eater.

What are they going to base the show on though?

Awakening? Fates? Heroes?

Heroes doesn't really have a story and Fates is garbo.

I'll defend the Awakening story forever. It's not perfect but it's good, especially if you delve into the supports.

I'm expecting some garbage based on heroes. I have a feeling that they'll try to fit in as much fanservice as possible in it and heroes would be the ideal choice for that.

Well, the setting and characters of Fates are fine. Maybe they could redeem themselves and use them in a story that doesn't suck ass.

Or they could do a tragedy set between FE7 and FE6 and show how Lyn died and the plains got fucked.

That's what I would do but I doubt they're aiming for anything that high concept.

If they made an anime I would guess either Awakening or Heroes depending on what kind of project it was. They could do something like Carnival Phantasm to push Heroes or do adaptation of Awakening with the option of a Fates series because of their popularity.

Awakening would be a 'better' choice between those three but I hope they go with original story line though.

This is what I'm expecting, too. 1~2 episodes long OVA based on Heroes that focuses on fan-service. Hopefully I'm wrong.

Depending on when the anime went into prduction, it could be based off fire emblem switch and could be used for cross-promotion

That's possible, but I don't think they would start teasing it like this. Of course for all I know they could reveal the game in a week with a promotional anime project to go with it.

Honestly, Fire Emblem is perfectly suited for an anime given the prominence of their large casts and relationships and the potential of balancing them out between stellar action scenes and the ongoing narrative, possibly even having characters viewers have grown accustomed to die. There's a lot of potential for the series and its storytelling that's yet to be tapped in that medium.

If it's an Awakening or Fates adaptation, most of the viewer discussion would be a massive shipping war. I can picture the massive arguments right now about the show "setting up the wrong pairings" lololol

If it's an Heroes adaptation...lol

The most interesting they can do is have it be an original series that somehow ties into the next FE game (either Warriors or the next true FE)

Would personally love an adaptation of FE7...seeing Lyn again on the big screen would be great :)

So basically we need fire emblem to become the game of thrones of anime.

Sumia x Chrom is canon, as per the opening movie.

It'll be M!Robin x Lucina.

I want them to give it the JoJo treatment and just go adapting the series Game by Game, I'll love to see Marth's, Lyn's and Ike's story animated.

But yeah, the classic games are surprisingly dense in story (And plot twists), if they want to go for something modern I think Awakening is the safest choice.

I like Heroes but the story is dumb and I don't feel it translate that well into anime unless they go full Yu-Gi-OH! and use the characters as summons of the week to beat the villains of the week.

I got exclusive screen shots of the anime here. I know for a fact that it's Marth's story. It follows Marth from the fall of his kingdoms to him raising an army to fight back. It's going to be pretty faithful to the game. All the characters are there. I think the screens below are from the first episode.

Sorry if the image quality is a little low. They are leaked to me in private. Don't share them.

They could always do something focusing on Awakening's second generation, being vague about who the fathers are.
