Nintendo had no problem selling its first mobile title, Miitomo, to the masses. Japan ate it right up, and America followed suit. What’s next? Today during their financial earnings report, Nintendo revealed what they were thinking of: Fire Emblem and Animal Crossing.

Fire Emblem Just Had Its Best-Selling Opening Week Ever With Fates

by Peter Paltridgeon February 24, 2016
You can consider Fire Emblem Fates a success! The series just had its biggest U.S. launch in the series’ history, with over 300,000 copies moved in just three days.

by Peter Paltridgeon December 30, 2015
You may be waiting for Dark Horse’s upcoming Fire Emblem: Awakening artbook, but the Japanese already have something better(don’t they always?): a 25th anniversary FE artbook detailing production secrets on all the games in the series, including many that weren’t released here. But there’s one page that isn’t about any game released at ALL: it […]
