    THE HYPE IS REAL. Most of the team from Fire Emblem Awakening is staying together, with the story being done by a famed comic book writer. It appears that the animation and art style will largely be the same. EXCEPT WITH ACTUAL FEET THIS TIME.

    Lots of interesting looking classes seemed to be shown off. Halberdiers are back for sure. The fan mage thing looks cool, not quite as hype as NUNS WITH AXES from the last game but still cool. Main character appears to be a female character, she might not be a sword user.

    Pair Up wasn't shown. Maybe they've taken it out or changed it? It was pretty op before so this is probably a good thing. The icons for it still appear. Still hoping it's been toned down a bit.

    On the direct they said that your choices will matter a lot? So I'm hoping for alternate endings.

    I see this, I freak out like a 7-year old when Let It Go starts playing.

    Yeah I'm hoping this gets waaay expanded on as opposed to "You can pick two things but Em still jumps anyway".

    I'm hoping for expanded branching paths like in Sacred Stones in a way, or maybe even from Gaiden where there were 2 entire separate armies at first that joined up later.

    The last FE game to really have majorly different endings was probably FE6, where not collecting all of the Divine Weapons would cause the "Bad Ending", and the game to end after defeating Zephiel rather than continuing onward to take down the dragons.

    There as one branching path in Sacred Stones that lasted what, four missions? Maybe five. If the choices you make affect the world even more than ever, We're going to need a LOT more branches...

    It was actually about 7 chapters, and the path you took had a decent effect on how your confrontation with the prince of grado turned out.

    Look like the Japanese release is set for this coming summer. Hopefully the localization turnaround is shorter than that of awakening. I'm cautiously hoping for a winter 2015 release, but expecting to need to wait until sometime next year.

    I'm trying not to get hyped up too much- FE is a good series but it has just as much chance of being mediocre as it does of being amazing and wonderful. Especially if they're still figuring out how to balance Pair Up.

    Serenes Forest did an analysis of the trailer that, if they're right, has the game looking really awesome already.

    Also- ACTUAL FEET! THEY HAVE ACTUAL FEET!

    Meanwhile, if this image is correct, the main lord of the game will be customizable the way Robin was in Awakening.

    I'll believe it when it actually happens for Europe.

    Tons of new info from the direct.

    The bad news: Release date for US is 2016. Boooooooooooo.

    Avatar is main character now. There's multiple versions of the game, which follow the different choices/campaigns. A special edition will have both paths. There is a DLC that will allow the player to choose neither side. Source for a lot of this stuff is from translations of the Japanese official site for the game, which went up recently.

    Image is from a press release of some kind? Not sure. Anywho, it appears that you can have 6 skills now instead of 5. The top left skill is inside a larger circle for some reason. There's speculation that this skill is a personal skill of some kind that can't be removed. Green stats are probably buffed while Red are debuffed. There's no listed weapon usage limit, but the weapons have a durability stat? Probably the same thing with a tweak.

    Avatar's class roughly translates to "Dark Prince". Avatar has a Sword Rank, and... a Dragonstone Rank. Interesting. A sword and a Dragonstone are held. Dragonstone rank seems to imply different types/ranks of dragonstones. Most diversity in dragonstones since FE3 is likely on the horizon. Some sort of manakete lord... cool.

    I'll be holding out for the special edition because that's how I roll with my giant FE boner. Hopefully it comes out here.

    Woah, there's a what?
    This is news to me. There's two versions in Japan, one for Hoshido and one for Nohr and from what I've read there will be paid DLC to let you play the other campaign, but another DLC to play neither? That's crazy, it's essentially three full games with DLC. If the special edition is a thing, with all three, then this could be the best FE yet. (or at least one of them)

    Only in Japan. Not gonna be out here for a while. But the world is dark and full of plot spoilers now. Serenes forest has the info segregated pretty well if you just want certain stuff like weapon stats.

    I like that the stat caps have been toned down from awakening. They are now pretty much in line with Radiant Dawn's caps.

    Yikes. I guess I've been lucky not to see any spoilers then. 'Cause I was totally unaware it was out in Japan already, lol.
