Fire Emblem Fates Birthright and Conquest came out for the 3DS today. You can buy them on the 3DS eshop or at stores! Here’s some more information via a Nintendo press release:

”  For the first time in the beloved Fire Emblem series, you can play through different adventures with unique storylines and characters in the Fire Emblem Fates games for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems. The first two versions, Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright and Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest, launch on February 19. You are faced with a major choice: Do you choose to team up with the birth family you barely know and battle the family that raised you in Birthright? Or do you walk the more challenging path of Conquest and change your misguided kingdom from within? The choice is yours. Let the adventures begin. “

Fire Emblem Fates has a lot in common with the previous Fire Emblem game, Fire Emblem Awakening, such as the battle system and the way relationships are formed in the game. However, there are some changes too. A new My Castle concept is introduced. Here is what Nintendo had to say about it:

” One of the most robust new features in all versions of Fire Emblem Fates is an area called My Castle. Here, you can prepare for upcoming battles, interact with allies to build stronger relationships or defend the castle from mysterious invasions. Many facilities of different types can be constructed in your personalized castle, including an Armory to purchase powerful new weapons, an Arena to battle for prizes and even a Private Quarters to meet with and strengthen relationships with your allies. As you progress through the game’s main story, more structures can be built, and existing structures upgraded. ”

Fire Emblem Fates can also use Fire Emblem amiibo, such as Ike and Marth, to “receive special items or battle against them for the chance to have them join your party.”

Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright and Conquest are both available on the Nintendo eshop and in stores now! If you get either or both, let us know what you think about the games.
