Fire Emblem Rumors and Leaks

What is the most absurd Fire Emblem rumor and leaks you have heard and seen?

I remember the Fire Emblem Vampire and Pirate rumor, but that’s been dissolved as time goes by.


Oh how nice! Finally a witty thread, where I suppose a little joking is allowed, without immediately having some of the so-called bigwigs raise their voices, jump on you to pin you down and then gag you. So I remember a phantom and nebulous Knight of Zodiac (Saint Seiya) inspired Fire Emblem project mentioned here and there online and full of expectations and good intentions, but without anyone ever making the slightest effort to put it into practice.
:confounded: :joy: :rofl:

I’d like to address some utterly derranged FE4 remake related rumors:
“There will be an FE4 remake because of the FE4 banners in Heroes.”
If anything, from Heroes, you’d think we’d be getting an Awakening, Fates or Three Houses remake. FE4 is one of the least represented games.
“FE4 remake will be a Switch 2 launch title.”
Oh boy, Switch 2 clickbait really is everywhere. Is Nintendo really going to bank on a remake for a new console? Super Mario Advance did do extremely well on GBA, though, so maybe. But everything points to this upcoming remake being years and years in the making, this is going to be a regular switch game or BOTW situation where it’s on 2 consoles. Nintendo could choose to release this game that was developed for older technology only on Switch 2, but that would be an incredibly anticonumer move that deserves scorn, not praise. Why are these Switch 2 fanatics so eager to pay hundreds for a new system that will definitely still be weak compared to other consoles? If anything the Switch being supported for so long is a breath of fresh air in the consumer electronics market where corps like Apple dump a new phone with minimal changes every year.


I remember seeing screenshots of this crazy looking supposed FE lord with toothpaste hair.
Everyone was talking about it for months.

Who’d have thought those were real…


I saw some leaked screenshots of an official fire emblem x pokémon crossover recently



FE4 remake, obviously.

We want to believe.


Come on now…

Its clearly a heros switch port

yeah like anti consumer and nintendo dont go hand in hand lol


The vampire Fire Emblem definitely stuck out to me at the time. It sounded cool as hell even if a lot of it didn’t sound very Fire Emblem-like. The concept itself inspired my dream project immensely, which also got me into the gothic horror genre through osmosis.

The most ridiculous one that I can remember was the rumor before Fates came out that Elise was torn apart by Risen in Birthright as an example of how darker the story was going to supposedly be. I also saw someone claim in the post-3H days that IS was working on a Fates Switch port next.


I don’t really know why so many people are so convinced that an FE4 remake is happening. I think that FE4 is in kind of a weird place where the story, as presented, isn’t exactly hyper mature-not for kids material, but I still can’t see a game being released today where a woman is brainwashed into a sexual relationship with her half-brother unless Nintendo is willing to let it get an M-Rating, which it has never done with any of its IPs. And then nothing else about the game really warrants an M-Rating, which raises the question of at that point do you go super dark with portraying story elements like the child hunts since the game is getting slapped with an M anyway? Do you go ahead and show Sigurd’s execution in grizzly detail to drive home the tragedy of his story?

I’m not saying I wouldn’t be excited if an FE4 remake was announced, but I find it very unlikely that Nintendo will bring that game to a mainstream western audience.

Ive never played FE4. THEY WHAT???


Oh poor, innocent sweet child…
