Fire Emblem Fates

Fire Emblem If, the new entry of the Fire Emblem series launching this month in Japan and next year in North America and Europe, is going to include a lot of features that are completely new for the franchise, as we have reported in the past few weeks.

In order to make players better understand these new gameplay features and get them acquainted with the new setting and characters, Nintendo has released a brand new Fire Emblem If earlier today. The trailer, which can be found by going at the end of this post, showcases characters from both the White and Black Kingdoms, how decisions will impact the story, battle features and more. Despite being in Japanese, it’s not too difficult to understand what’s going on the video so check it out if you’re a fan of the series.

Among the many new features included in Fire Emblem If are different story paths which change the second half of the game and its ending. The physical release of the game will be available in two variants, the White Kingdom and Black Kingdom, so players purchasing them won’t be able to play through the Black Kingdom story path in the White Kingdom version and vice-versa. Those purchasing the digital version, however, will be able to make a choice, with the path not taken becoming no longer available in future playthroughs. The only way to experience it is by purchasing it as DLC and to facilitate this purchase, Nintendo will release a Fire Emblem If prepaid card this month in Japan.

Fire Emblem If will be released in Japan on June 26th as Fire Emblem If: White Kingdom and Fire Emblem If: Black Kingdom. The two versions of the game sport a different challenge level, different story sequences and characters, different maps and more. A third story path is also going to be released as DLC.

Fire Emblem If will also be released in North America and Europe on a yet to be confirmed release date. If you haven’t been following all the latest news on Fire Emblem If, you can learn everything there is to know about the game by going here.

Raiden has a long and interesting history as a vertical shooter in arcades. However, the series is going to get a Super Stardust HD makeover, which means it will switch to a twin-stick format. It comes out in Japan on October 31. There’s no word yet on when it will come out in the West, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it did.

A Gematsu translation of the game’s website says that the full version will have an arcade mode with up to six stages. There will also be an “Unlimited” option for people who want to be at the top of the rankings. It sounds like a pretty straightforward package in terms of what’s inside, but we think the action will be what makes it worth it.

There’s a trailer up top that should help you figure out what to expect. There are, however, different versions of Raiden 3, Raiden 4, and Raiden 5 that you can play right now on the PS5 and PS4, if you can’t wait for this game to come out in the West.

Bandai Namco and Nike designed Tekken 8 sneakers with tag-team designs

Nike, the maker of high-quality shoes, is working with Bandai Namco, the company that makes the Tekken series, to make a pair of sneakers. The fun competition is part of the franchise’s 30th anniversary celebrations. You can get your own pair for $250 or the equivalent in your country, though they’ll probably be worth a lot more on the sneakerhead black market.

Two pairs of Tekken 8 x Nike Air Foamposite One Fist sneakers are set to come out in September 2024, according to shoe fan Sole Retriever (thanks, VGC). The designs are based on Kazuya and Jin, two main characters in the series. You can get them at Nike and some other stores. People who like hypebeasts and fighting games are likely to buy these quickly, so if you like Tekken and shoes that make people talk, you should probably act fast.

Should Bandai Namco and Nike work together? What do you think? Are you going to fight for your own pair? Make sure to take good care of your shoes and keep their value in the comments section below.

There will soon be a new book in Future Press’s Books of Knowledge series, which is FromSoftware’s officially licensed line of hardcover strategy guides. This will help players who are having trouble with Elden Ring’s Shadow of the Erdtree expansion. The base game came with two books, and now you can get the unholy trinity for $45 (or the equivalent amount in your currency). It will ship on September 30th.

Like the first two games, The Lands Between and Shards of Shattering, Shadow of the Erdtree is both a complete guide to how to play and a beautiful artbook with full-page pictures of enemies, landscapes, and weapons. This big book has 352 pages and is likely to sell out quickly, based on how quickly the ones that came before it did.

Do you know a lot about strategy guides? You could read the first two Books of Knowledge. If so, what did you think of them? Leave a comment below and let us know.
