[FE8] Sacred Echoes (working title)


#1

With the release of the FEE3 video, I figured it was time this gets a thread. Since the video’s recording, I’ve added a functional world map.

Sacred Echoes (until I think of a better title) is a demake of Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia for the GBA. There are currently 4 chapters in a playable state.

Features:

  • The Gaiden/Echoes magic system, where spells are learned by level-up, are accessible through the B.Magic or W.Magic menu, and cost HP to cast.
  • Various mechanics tweaks to mirror Echoes and Gaiden’s combat system.
  • Different maps and objectives from the source games.
  • Branching promotions for the Villager classes, with 5 possible class options.
  • 3rd tier classes, with expanded caps allowing stats to reach 40. The dread fighter -> villager loop is also included.
  • A functional world map that can be explored, just like in the originals.
  • All-new GBA remixes of Gaiden and Echoes soundtrack.
  • Various UI improvements.

The first official patch will be released when Act 1 is complete. I will need some help with maps and playtesting, so please contact me on Discord if you’re interested.

RIP every other Valentia GBA project that will never stand up to this

#5

Very impressive.


#6

Can I make maps for this? I already end up making random fe2 maps from time to time already and this looks pretty awesome.


#7

#8

The presentation is soooo good. And since you’ll be updating the maps, the gameplay will also improve as well! Can’t wait for the release!


#9

This is one of the best things that were in FEE3, it looks amazing! If you could change some maps around a little bit so they are less tedious but still stay true to SoV that would be awesome. Wondering how are you planning to do the 3rd tier classes as it seems to me like it’s gonna be very hard to do lol, like the dread fighters.

@HyperGammaSpace To clutter down on all the discord requests here, why don’t you make a discord server for Sacred Echoes? People can volunteer to be playtesters, help you out with the hack, so on and so forth.
