Screenshots of what the rumors say are a new, already complete Fire Emblem game has apparently leaked online.
Asked by a FamiBoards post from industry insider Emily Rogers, which included several alleged details about a new game, Reddit user Miasmadelta posted what they claimed were screenshots from it along with further details. The screenshots were then shared by FavorDish on Twitter (below).
“I can confirm that this is brand new [Fire Emblem] game and it has been completed for quite some time now. “I’m not sure what the delay was in announcing it,” said the Miasma Delta. “Interestingly, some aspects of it appear to have been reused from the canceled Wii. [Fire Emblem] game. In addition, rumors about [a Fire Emblem 4] re-recording is also real. “

The posts claim the game is a brand new entry in the series with several new characters and a summoning mechanic that allows players to retrieve previous Fire Emblem characters – although apparently not like the mobile game Fire Emblem Heroes (which includes a similar mechanic).
The main character apparently has red and blue hair (as shown in the alleged screenshots), and the list of other characters apparently includes the regularly recurring character Anna.
The posts also said that Gust, the developer best known for his Atelier franchise, has helped with the new Fire Emblem game, although it’s mainly developed between Intelligent Systems and Koei Tecmo (who worked on Fire Emblem: Three Houses together) and has been completed for more than a year.
All of this information needs to be taken with a pinch of salt until Nintendo itself confirms it, but the post suggested that the publisher was waiting for a major Nintendo Direct presentation to announce it. However, given that the company is not yet keeping its regular E3-adjacent Nintendo Direct, confirmation of a new Fire Emblem may be on the way soon.
Based on its rccent release schedule, a new listing may not be too far away. The latest mainline game, Fire Emblem: Three Houses, was released in 2019, while Fates was released in 2015, and Awakening in 2012. In our 9/10 review of the previous game, IGN said: “Fire Emblem: Three Houses offers an incredible number choices, and a story that deserves to be seen from more than one angle. “
