There hasn’t been a lot of details on the new Fire Emblem since it was revealed at E3 2018. When the curtain was pulled back at the event, the first trailer for Fire Emblem: Three Houses was shown to audiences. It turned out to be a bit more than a mere tease, setting up the title with some background story and showing off segments of gameplay. It was also revealed that Fire Emblem: Three Houses will be a Nintendo Switch exclusive and is looking at a Spring 2019 release date.
Because Spring is right around the corner, it makes sense that Nintendo will want to start heavily promoting the title. We can expect to learn a lot about the new Fire Emblem during the upcoming Nintendo Direct, so fans of the series will definitely want to check it out. As for what other Switch titles Nintendo plans on discussing for the Direct, it’s anyone’s guess. We can definitely check the next Metroid from that list, however, as it was recently announced that development is going to take a lot longer than expected.
Animal Crossing fans are likely on the edge of their seats hoping for more information on the next game in the series. Audiences first learned about it during another Nintendo Direct many months ago, when it premiered with a small teaser trailer. More recently, a supposed leak claimed to know the release date for the new Animal Crossing, putting its launch at mid-September of this year.
We’ll just have to see what Nintendo has in store when the Direct goes live tomorrow, February 13, at 2PM PT.
