It sounds like the Fire Emblem Echoes name isn’t just a lengthy lead up to the Shadows of Valentia subtitle.
See, this new game coming in the Fire Emblem series that’s called Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. It’s actually a full-on remake of the second Fire Emblem game in the series that never released beyond Japan. And it turns out that there are a whole bunch of Fire Emblem games that large parts of the world missed out on.
Nintendo may have landed on the Echoes part of that leading name to start a new series of complete remakes in the Fire Emblem line.
NeoGAF user Blackquill pointed out in a recent GameXplain video that the developers took a lot of time settling on that Echoes part of the name, knowing that they might be leaning on it for a while.
Interestingly, that video has since been removed by GameXplain, and that’s not typical for the channel. Keep this bit of news in the rumor category until we hear otherwise from some different sources.
