Fire Emblem Fates Gets New English Teaser Site

FEF 1-5-2016 - 1

With the release date of February 19th approaching quickly, Nintendo has finally gotten their Fire Emblem Fates website online.

The site features some information regarding the game, as well as some rather attractive screenshots, showing Fates looking as good as ever.

Curiously, the site says “Full site coming soon”, so it’s likely we’ll see this updated again closer to the actual release with the more common character lists and things often found on official game sites. In the meantime, though, we’ll have to settle for some screenshots, basic info, and a pre-order link.

Both Fire Emblem Fates Birthright and Fire Emblem Fates Conquest will be available on February 19th, with the third path, Fire Emblem Fates Revelations, being available shortly thereafter.

    Rise of the Tomb Raider in Jan. (On PC) and this in Feb… 2016 off to a good start! :3

    Hey unless I’m mistaken the boxart on the official website shows a Teen rating which is the first time it’s rating has been revealed? The ESRB website doesn’t have it listed yet and places like Amazon and GameStop don’t have the updated boxart either.

    Assuming the Teen rating holds true, can we expect cut content that otherwise would have pushed it to an M rating? Censored content?

    probably not outright cut content this is a Nintendo franchise and probably not needing cuts to avoid the M more likely some translation edits and maybe the odd bit of steam or what not like with the last one.

    Did the Japanese version have the equivalent of a M rating in the west?

    Haha. Good luck getting that lesbian option over here.

  8. Tenryuu
    January 5, 2016 at 4:09 pm

    C-15+ Which is the highest rating in the series history… Welp. :(

    What a shame. It was a good game. What a rotten way to die.

    Conquest has the gay romance.

    Birthright has the Yuri goodness.

    Revelations ~should~ have both?

  12. Para-Medic
    January 5, 2016 at 4:26 pm

    I wish just straight-up direct translations would catch on. No more “localizations.” Just TL what’s on-screen and let us figure out the rest.

    Censoring should go away too. NOA covered my waifu’s butt!

  13. Vampok
    January 5, 2016 at 4:31 pm

    JP version is 15+, which is in between the English T (13+) and M (17+). Really, there’s nothing in the game that would get it up to an M rating anyways (Dead or Alive Dimensions and Code of Princess both got a T as well).

    Thank fuck the 3DS has been hacked wide open so the community can undo their bullshit now.

  15. MGNoxa
    January 5, 2016 at 4:48 pm

    Yeah but NoA remove that stuff from their games… I want it in the game but Fire Emblem is censored every time it’s released and the censorship is always stupid and done in the dumbest way.

    If this Fire Emblem isn’t censored I’ll buy it but I think that money is staying in my wallet.

    Dragons Dogma PC and REmaster 0 are being released this month, plus XCOM2 next month.
    It was always a good start and between the PC ports, its exclusives and the great games coming out , 2016 is a really promising year for me, cant wait to see if it delivers.

    (Also out of video games: Guts off the boat, new Berserk animated project and a new Samurai Jack series on Adult Swim)

    It all sounds pretty gud and I cant wait.

    Doesn’t seem like any UK retailers have the limited edition available, in which case i’m gonna pass until it goes cheap enough that both separately would cost the same as the special edition

    Mhm, Dragon’s Dogma at a steady 60 FPS and downsampled from 4k. Maybe I’ll actually be able to get through more than 15 minutes without motion sickness lol.

    Totally forgot RE0 too… Damn, 2015 may have been year of the dreams, but barring any delays, 2016 will actually be really great for people who enjoy playing games.

    Code of Princess has Zombie nipples.

    That really bares no weight on this conversation, but it needed to be pointed out for prosperity’s sake.

    I’m still miffed that I couldn’t secure the Special Edition. Pre-orders just sold out way too fast.

    Oh, can the 3DS play pirated games now too?

  26. Siveon
    January 5, 2016 at 6:09 pm

    I’d say be careful what you wish for. While I dislike translators who think they’re writers, if you don’t make any attempt to form coherency with the text, most of it will read like awkward shit. Why go to such extremes?

    The only problem I see is that we keep having hacks who take out content and meaning because of reasons.

    “Year of dreams”
    You mean the year of crushed dreams right?
    Witcher 3 and MGSV were enjoyable and I wasnt even hyped for them due to the excessive marketing which I instantly saw as a red flag.

    Enjoyable games, but dissapointing considering the hype anlegacy of both franchises.


    Thank god for tools like UE4 and Unity being avaiable to pretty much everyone, I keep seeing more middle ground-budgeted games and indies getting more graphical fidelity.

    Hopefully this trend picks on and AAA just dies out due to no risk stagnation and low profit margins.

  28. DizzyGear
    January 5, 2016 at 6:27 pm

    Yeah you can play backups and homebrew on the new and old 3DS for a while now.
    I use it for breaking that misrable region lock, undubs and fantranslations.
    Look around on the GBAtemp forums for more info.

  29. Immahnoob
    January 5, 2016 at 6:32 pm

    I’ve been looking since I’ve seen your message.

    Buuuuut, can I just ask you again to be certain?

    Can I like, stick an USB in a 3DS, stick the USB in my computer, install a custom firmware and then put on some downloaded ROMs in it and then play the games for free…?

    Just to be certain.

    Because I’d really love to just download Fire Emblem: Awakening and play it :)

    Besides the early CG and the unfitting music that will unlikely be part of the project I see nothing wrong with that, I dont see your point.

    Is it the CG? I can ignore CG if its Berserk and it looks tolerable.

    Maybe it’s just me, but when I saw that Gut’s face was actually hand drawn really well, it just doesn’t mix to well with the CGI. Also not a big fan of the CG to be honest.

    Heads up to everyone: There’s system downgrade out now for the 3DS, works even with some of the most recent firmwares so make sure to check it out.


    Best case scenario you can downgrade easily, put a custom firmware, it works with the e shop, works for games online, and lets you run mods for games such as the unofficial translation of fire emblem with the game or even a backup version of the game if you’d rather.

  34. scemar
    January 5, 2016 at 6:46 pm

    Awkward shit can be understood it’s just awkward.
    Censored rewritten text is a lost cause, there’s nothing to do about it.

    A matter of flavour but just saying, there’s people out there who prefer the translations that sound a bit odd over the censored rewritten alternative.

    But of course the best option is one that sounds good while being true to the original text without censorship and god bless any localizer who actually does that like Xseed.

  35. DizzyGear
    January 5, 2016 at 6:55 pm

    Again check the forums on GBAtemp. There is a very large noob guide on hacking the 3DS there.
    Sorry to be vague but i’ll prolly piss off the mods if i link stuff directly.

  36. Immahnoob
    January 5, 2016 at 7:00 pm

    Nah, there’s no need to explain it in any detail.

    A “yes” to that question would suffice. As for anything else, I’ll ask if a N3DS works on the 3DSHacks reddit.

  37. DizzyGear
    January 5, 2016 at 7:11 pm

    Or to run the genderswap mod for Rune Factory 4 for all your yuri needs.
    There has also been decent progress on the fan translation of Beyond the Labyrinth for those intrested.

  38. Siveon
    January 5, 2016 at 7:22 pm

    Well, no, awkward shit can also lose things in translation. Like whenever they make a pun or any type of joke.

    Not like it matters, I’m not rooting one flavor of shit for another. Either we get a proper, true to the game, publication – or it’s shit. Simple as that.

    January 5, 2016 at 7:27 pm

    I use a flashcard myself thats very straight forward to use and has allot of neat extra features so i never bothered with CFW tbh.

  41. Para-Medic
    January 5, 2016 at 7:33 pm

    I’m not asking for machine translations. My ability to read moonrunes is about middle school level, and even I can do better than most machines lol. Obviously I want a living, breathing, thinking, feeling human on the other end to make decent sense of it.

    …. BUT PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS HOLY STOP CHANGING THE MEANING. I’m also not opposed to seeing a decrease in “Westernization.” We don’t need proper nouns translated do we? And we don’t need censorship that appeals only to prude nobodies that do not make up the majority. (Of core game buyers)

    That’s all I’m askin’. Is that so bad?

    Maybe, I liked the Golden Arc movies mix of CG and hand drawn somewhat even if some of it looked liked shit sometimes, the battles were pretty well made and extended and I think they fleshed out the characters some more even if leaving some other details out (Im still pissed that they left Guts past out and that the three year time skip was barely noticeable on the charcters physical wise).

    I give it 3/10 silver coins.

    I’m just hoping HANS becomes the standard for running translations… honestly, fuck every other method. HANS is amazing.

  44. Siveon
    January 5, 2016 at 8:08 pm

    No, because it already happens. It’s called a proper, and well done publication/localization. Namely XSEED, our lord and savior. And a few others when they don’t fuck up (as far as we know).

    I use the word publicize/localize instead of translate, since I also expect the game to fucking work, the physical release to have a decent amount of copies and perhaps even advertise in a moderate amount to tell people the game exists.

    I don’t know why, but when people say they want a decent translation – I imagine just reading off of those GameFAQ guides that translated all the dialogue and you have to flip to each section manually.

    Any images of these zombie nipples?

  54. Brimfyre
    January 6, 2016 at 5:21 pm

    I did a quick search and couldn’t find any decent screen shots. they are literally a pixel wide, and probably not worth the effort for just a nip slip

    It’s Lady Zozo. As you can see by her dress, there isn’t much attched, so when she jumps or falls down you can see her goods.


  55. British_Otaku
    January 6, 2016 at 5:37 pm

    It is always worth the effort to mock rating systems. Nipples seem to never make it into Japanese games aside from the PC, CERO gives Z ratings to games which get censored from the west to avoid them.

    If Japan gave a playable character, blue zombie or not a pass it is noteworthy. Same goes for the west as far as no drama from it being uncut to my knowledge.

    I always wanted to try the game out so I’ll see where I can get the game for cheap.
