Eight Things You Should Know

Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, a remake of Fire Emblem Gaiden, arrives next week, so you'll have to wait until then to read our review. However, I've been playing through the game for the past day or so and thought, given how tight-lipped Nintendo and Intelligent Systems have been about what's actually in the game, it might be worth listing my big takeaways so far as a series fan. I'm going to keep it light on spoilers as much as possible, but if you want to go in blind you probably should just wait to play the game yourself.

There are multiple protagonistsBoth Awakening and Fates gave players a blank slate character whose gender they can select. Fire Emblem Echoes, instead, has two protagonists that you jump between: warrior Alm and priestess Celica. The two characters are friends in the prologue who become separated by an event that happens early on in the game.
