Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade To Launch On The Japanese Wii U eShop Next Week

Fire Emblem

The Fire Emblem series has managed to become successful in the West only recently, with Nintendo deciding to localize the GameBoy Advance entries of the series following the popularity of Roy and Marth. Not all of these games have been translated in English, unfortunately, and one of the GBA games exclusive to Japan is going to be released on the Wii U eShop next week.

Earlier today Nintendo has confirmed that Fire Emblem: Fuin No Tsurugi, commonly known in the West as Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade, is going to be released on the Japanese Wii U eShop on September 2nd. The game will be available for purchase for the price of 902 yen.

As stated above, Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade has never been localized so chances are slim for a release on the North American and European Wii U eShops. Considering the series currently popularity, however, the Japanese company may end up doing what they did with the original Mother a few months ago and release the game in English for the first time on the Wii U eShop. We will keep you updated on the matter as soon as possible.

Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade plays not too differently from other classic entries of the Fire Emblem series. The game, set before the events of Fire Emblem: Rekka no Ken, takes place on the content of Elibe, a continent split into six different nations. Following the successful invasion of the kingdoms of Ilia and Sacae by the king of Bern, Roy is forced to return home and take control of the Lycia’s army in order to prevent King Zephiel to conquer the Kingdom. Being the direct prequel of Fire Emblem: Rekka no Ken, Fire Emblem: Binding Blade features a lot of characters from the game in their younger forms as well as others tied to Rekka no Ken’s characters

Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade will be released on the Japanese Wii U eShop next week, on September 2nd. There are currently no news on a possible Western release of the game, but we will let you know more about it as soon as more comes in.

Bandai Namco has confirmed that the Tekken Shop in the upcoming Tekken 8 will offer a mix of paid and free content. Premium items will be purchasable using a currency known as Tekken Coins. The Tekken Shop will undergo monthly updates, with the developer emphasizing that the intention is to enhance the competitive fighter with new customization items rather than solely for financial gain. However, there is no reason why it cannot be both.

Revealed in a recent Tekken Talk Live stream, chief producer Yasuda Esports shared some of the upcoming features for the Tekken Shop, seemingly aiming to address any potential criticism proactively. “It has been reported that certain individuals may experience an adverse response upon encountering the term’shop”; however, the focus remains on enhancing the game by introducing new customization options to maintain its appeal.”

According to Mr. Esports, the format will be similar to Tekken 7, and the focus is on improving the game experience rather than just making a profit.

Do you think Bandai Namco is establishing the Tekken Shop to maintain the game’s appeal, generate revenue from microtransactions, or perhaps a combination of both? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below.
