More Thoughts From Me Fire Emblem Edition: Echoes of the Past and Future

When Nintendo announced that there would be a Direct this week for Fire Emblem, I tried not to set my hopes too high. It was very likely that only Fire Emblem Warriors and maybe that Fire Emblem mobile game would be shown. This week, we found out the mobile title would indeed be shown.

Almost Missed It: I Am Setsuna For #NintendoSwitch

I had no idea what I Am Setsuna was and didn’t think I’d care. I saw the name listed in Nintendo’s recent 2017 Nintendo Switch lineup image on twitter.

Then, I saw a Nintendo Enthusiast video that showed off a lot of games that are coming for the Switch this year. One…
