[FE8] Fire Emblem: Project Baldr/Seasonal FE4 Remake

Hello and welcome, I have the honor to present you with this new project, entitled: “Project Baldr”.

“Project Baldr” is a remake of the original Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War on Super Famicom, also known as FE4, on GBA, with the FE8 engine.

We decided to make a remake of this game because first and foremost it’s a game we really like and we would like to provide FE4 enthusiasts such as new players a fresh and unique experience, with the feel of the original game in mind.

More than a remake, we made some minor changes to hopefully enhance your experience, such as a new version of the arena, chapters segmented in smaller maps, and Gaiden Chapters.
As a GBA Fire Emblem, it benefits from its mechanics, including rescue, support, and branch promotions.
But also new features, memory prisms, new characters, unique character animations, some returning from Thracia 776, further story details for better immersion and world-building and many more that will enrich the atmosphere of the project.


We expect the full project to release whenever all the chapters are complete, including Eventing, Story and Script, Unit placements, Items and such.

Here, You can take a look at many resources that are made for this project, Including Character sheet, Progress Docs, And Links to various related media.

Hello, it’s an honour to partake in this project, thank you Enjin.
Firstly, I wanted to mention that every portrait I did (with my colour on the top-left corner) for the project will be F2U upon release.
How the character sheet works isn’t that complicated, on the top-left corner, you have the colours of the main contributor(s) and on the top-right corner, you have the colours of a more minor contributor (colours edit, adding frames etc…)
Then, we would rather have portraits for characters who don’t have one yet but if anyone wishes to rework a character I already did to improve them, you can, whether it is from scratch or from what I already made, it’s alright. In the latter case, please ask me for the assets.
Now that it has been addressed, I wish you all a wonderful day and hope you’ll have fun experiencing Fire Emblem: Project Baldr.

Very cool!

I noticed in the FEE3 vid that Alec died during the arena. Was there a way for him to have left or is it a “fight til the end” sort of experience?

He was supposed to respawn at the bottom left corner, However it seems one of the conditionals failed and checked for Ayra instead, This is fixed of course.

Ok, that makes sense

Indeed, The Project has changed a lot since what was shown on the showcase, so its a lot more polished to bring a Good Quality Remake, I’m very happy with the progress and I hope the team and the community continues on with me until the end!

Here’s a little sneak peek, Holyn by Toa Cazo and @Leo_link

Something I’ve noticed is the name choices which is always interesting to see in these remakes. I’m assuming the names are a personal choice but im still curious if their is a reason behind them?

For example Ulster being called Scathach but Holyn not being called Chulainn, Azel not being spelled Azelle, or Johan and Johalva being called Iuchar and Iucharba

I’ll assume they’re using the Japanese names, since Schátach in Japanese is スカサハ, Chulainn is ホリン, Azelle is アゼル, though Johan and Johalva aren’t named Iuchar and Iucharba in Japanese
