KoopaTV's Non-Live Reactions to the Fire Emblem Direct!

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - Well, I missed it live. Rawk saw it already.

At 5 PM Eastern, Nintendo had a 19-minute Fire Emblem Direct that covered 4 games. Here's the embed of it, but I give my reactions (first-time viewing it, an hour and a half after 5 PM Eastern, though) for the whole thing, so read along with those.

After, Rawk (RawkHawk2010) and I (Nintendork 13 13) discuss it. My Fire Emblem Heroes (that's the name of the mobile game) votes are open to be manipulated by reader suggestions, by the way, as long as they're from Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance and/or Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn

    I'll wait for us to talk about that before I do it

 Nintendork 13 13 6:26 pm
    uhh
    wot
    http://www.nintendo.com/nintendo-direct/01-18-2017/#/video-1ndirect
    I'd like to watch that.
    19 minutes.
    And react.
    You in?

 RawkHawk2010 6:28 pm
    no

 Nintendork 13 13 6:28 pm
    :|

 RawkHawk2010 6:28 pm
    cuz I already watched it, lol

 Nintendork 13 13 6:28 pm
    oh
    ...
    >_>;
    WELL
    I'M GONNA WATCH IT
    AND REACT

 RawkHawk2010 6:28 pm
    You react

 Nintendork 13 13 6:28 pm
    AND YOU'RE NOT GONNA SPOIL

 RawkHawk2010 6:28 pm
    And I'll watch

 Nintendork 13 13 6:28 pm
    STARTED
    Fire Emblem theme
    "Welcome to Fire Emblem direct"
    "Multiple Fire Emblem titles"
    anime characters
    Boy and girl pinky-swearing peace.
    All of a sudden it's global warming.

 Nintendork 13 13 6:30 pm
    "The Book of Valentian Revlations, Chapter 15"
    Now the anime characters have armour.
    Duma and Mila are two gods.
    They're siblings, the gods, and they fought.
    So it's basically a rip-off of the Tellius plot.
    The siblings agreed on peace.
    With SEGREGATION TODAY
    SEGREGATION TOMORROW
    AND SEGREGATION FOREVER
    Duma's kingdom apparently became a bunch of assholes.

 Nintendork 13 13 6:32 pm
    And the continent, Valentia, is mad.
    Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia
    Inspired by Fire Emblem Gaiden, that game no one cares abvout.
    *about
    'cause it's hideous and different.
    Gaiden is a "reimagining" of Gaiden.
    erm
    Echoes
    The anime dudes are Alm and Celica.
    ...Yeah so I recognise those names.
    Featuring Studio Khara.
    So this comes after they remade Fire Emblem 1
    Fire Emblem 3
    and now they're remaking Fire Emblem 2.

 Nintendork 13 13 6:34 pm
    Launch on 3DS May 19, 2017.
    ...Huh, that's soon.
    Looks like the 3DS has more of a future than that Pikmin game.
    Morewhile, Fire Emblem is returning to HOME CONSOLES
    since Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn.
    "Planned for release in 2018"
    On the Switch.
    AND now there's Fire Emblem Warriors.
    With "scenes not in last week's reveal"
    Last week's reveal literally was just Chrom lifting a sword.
    And this shield thing.
    Here's sword-lifting.
    There's Chrom.

 Nintendork 13 13 6:36 pm
    Chrom, the person KoopaTV considers to be a traitor, must be
    uh
    doing inappropriate things to himself.
    Coming Fall 2017.
    wtf
    It's not only for Nintendo Switch, but also the NEW Nintendo 3DS.
    How long are they keeping the Nintendo 3DS?
    ewwww now it's mobile trash
    "Not actual gameplay"
    We're gonna see wot Fire Emblem mobile is like.
    Featuring totally non-FE-like designs.
    For characters.
    Well that dude with a mask is pretty much a black male Lucina.
    AHH
    IT'S ACTUAL LUCINA
    AND CHROM
    AGAIN
    These are all losers from Awakeningh and Fates.
    "Fire Emblem Heroes"

 Nintendork 13 13 6:38 pm
    "first ever game for smart devices"
    *Fire Emblem game
    "YOU'VE been summoned to battle."
    "A brand-new original story."
    Emblian Empire?
    Is that turning "Emblem"
    into an adjective?
    "You must call upon Fire Emblem heroes throughout history."
    "Each map is an 8 by 6 grid fit for a smartphone"
    You can move and attack.
    In heavily-deformed fights.
    Every map is Rout.

 Nintendork 13 13 6:41 pm
    There's WALL breaking.
    And Nino from Fire Emblem 7.
    There is weapon triangle.
    OMG
    IT FEATURES CHROM DYING
    YES
    HAHAHAHAA.

Fire Emblem Heroes Direct Chrom dies loses failed mobile
Chrom continues his losing streak. (For more information on what we have against Chrom, click here.)

    ewwww
    microtransactions
    "orbs"
    That summon dudes.
    And you buy said orbs.
    "I'm crossing my fingers for Lon'Qu"

 Nintendork 13 13 6:43 pm
    IT'S RNG-BASED
    YOU JUST KEEP SUMMONING PEOPLE
    AND HOPE FOR A USEFUL PERSON
    AND YOU HAVE TO PAY FOR THAT
    'CAUSE IT'S RNG-BASED
    wtf Narcian
    (aka Narshan)
    from FE6
    Now there's FE6 music.
    There's "star counts"
    that are also RNG-based
    that determine higher base stats.
    Lon'qu died too.

 Nintendork 13 13 6:45 pm
    There's optional non-story level-up combat opportunities.
    With skills.
    "Our Lon'qu is already gaining in power at a rapid pace."
    Well sure, if you just edit hours of gameplay into a montage.
    Ooh, Nabarl.
    Also from FE6.
    ...
    wait no
    That's FE1
    I dunno.
    But there's no one from FE8, FE9, or FE10.
    Available February 2 on Google Play.
    And Apple shit.
    And there's a "choose your legends" event.

 Nintendork 13 13 6:47 pm
    "select the ones you'd like to see make an appearance" in the game on the website.
    So it's the Smash Ballot...
    ...but for a shitty mobile garbage.
    My Nintendo account bonus get a platinum coin bonus for voting.
    (Reminder that platinum coins are useless and given away like candy.)
    end

 RawkHawk2010 6:48 pm
    so

 Nintendork 13 13 6:48 pm
    I didn't take any screenshots but I better get some of Chrom dying.

 RawkHawk2010 6:48 pm
    I like the mobile art style when they're battling

 Nintendork 13 13 6:48 pm
    So I don't consider myself a Fire Emblem fan anymore.
    <_<
    And haven't for years.

 RawkHawk2010 6:49 pm
    Anything different from the Fates designs is an improvement obvs

 Nintendork 13 13 6:49 pm
    True.

 RawkHawk2010 6:49 pm
    So I guess I'll be our sole source for Heroes?

 Nintendork 13 13 6:49 pm
    Yup.

 RawkHawk2010 6:49 pm
    Maybe I can play it in VR

 Nintendork 13 13 6:49 pm
    I'm on the voting site.

moo
Fire Emblem Heroes Battle Ballot characters vote mobile site
Hey, look, it's Ludwig's Mii before he got banned from Miiverse and changed it!


 RawkHawk2010 6:49 pm
    Not spending any money on this shit btw.
    Which should be easy.
    Vote for Meg

 Nintendork 13 13 6:50 pm
    Oh dang I can literally pick from any character from Radiant Dawn or Path of Radiance.
    Ew, Meg is gross.

 RawkHawk2010 6:50 pm
    Nemphanee

 Nintendork 13 13 6:50 pm
    That Micaiah fan on Twitter would probably want me to pick her.

 RawkHawk2010 6:50 pm
    I dunno which Black Knight is better.

 Nintendork 13 13 6:50 pm
    Personally I'd rather pick Volke.
    Not that it matters to me.
    I'll put my vote up for the readers to decide.
    =-O
    That said, FE9 or FE10 only.

 RawkHawk2010 6:51 pm
    Sonic Heroes

 RawkHawk2010 6:51 pm
    Dragon Ball Heroes
    YouTube Heroes
    Fire Emblem Heroes

 Nintendork 13 13 6:51 pm
    Uh...
    So does voting for Ike in FE9
    and voting for Ike in FE10
    do those count as different characters?
    And their vote is split?

 RawkHawk2010 6:52 pm
    no idea

 Nintendork 13 13 6:52 pm
    This is gonna require some coordination.

 RawkHawk2010 6:52 pm
    Buff Ike may be the Dr. Mario to Ike's Weenie Ike.

 Nintendork 13 13 6:53 pm
    So they have wallpapers for the top 10 males and the top 10 females.

 RawkHawk2010 6:53 pm
    FE Warriors looked dumb

 Nintendork 13 13 6:53 pm
    Whenever those are decided.

 RawkHawk2010 6:53 pm
    Zelda Warriors with worse characters.
    Well

 Nintendork 13 13 6:53 pm
    You can also vote once per day.

 RawkHawk2010 6:53 pm
    The one obviously good thing from the Direct...

 Nintendork 13 13 6:53 pm
    Between now and January 31.

 RawkHawk2010 6:53 pm
    ...it had good music.
    Can we agree on that?

 Nintendork 13 13 6:53 pm
    I did like the music.
    None of it was new music.
    It's all remixes.
    ...so of course it's likely to be good.



Ludwig wonders if the Nintendo Switch Fire Emblem game will return the series back to what he expects it to be. He doubts it, though. In other news, Fire Emblem Heroes has 13 days of voting, starting today. Let Ludwig know who he should vote for!


The vote for the Black Knight is very split indeed...

  1. Echoes sounds interesting to me, with the dungeon exploration and stuff they described.

    1. It's not literally dungeon exploration.

      Delete
    2. It's the same thing as normal gameplay, except optional, doesn't advance the plot, and exists for experience/item-grinding.

      Delete
    3. To see it in action, see this random Let's Player of Fire Emblem Gaiden, who explores a dungeon. Note that the episode is called "Grinding".
