Fire Emblem Fates has been released a few days ago in Japan and many have been trying to fully understand the new gameplay mechanics powering the new entry of the series developed by Intelligent Systems. Among the several gameplay mechanics are skills, special abilities that give each unit some specific perks. As there are quite a lot of skills in Fire Emblem Fates, many of them working a bit differently than in Fire Emblem Awakening, it can be difficult for some players to create an effective combination of skills.
Later this week the Japanese magazine Famitsu is going to offer a rather handy way to learn more about the Fire Emblem Fates skills and create powerful units. The next issue of the magazine, which will hit Japanese stands this Thursday, will include a Fire Emblem Fates skills guide that will surely help more than a few players. You can check out a low-quality preview image of the guide by going at the end of this post.
Yesterday we have reported that the Fire Emblem Fates writer has recently clarified his role in the creation of the game’s story. Judging from the precise translation of his statement, it doesn’t look like he’s trying to distance himself from the game, as some have speculated in the past few days.
Fire Emblem Fates has been released in Japan as two different versions including two different story paths featuring a different challenge level, different characters and more. A third story path is going to be released later this month as DLC, a path where the player will not align with any of the two Kingdoms.
Fire Emblem Fates is going to be released sometime next year in North America and Europe exclusively on Nintendo 3DS. More on the Western version of the game will be coming soon so stay tuned for all the latest news on the new entry of the successful Fire Emblem series.
