E3 06: Fire Emblem burns for Wii

At Nintendo's pre-E3 briefing, the company tipped off that its highly acclaimed strategy role-playing series is headed to its next console.


LOS ANGELES--As part of a game reel showcasing a slew of games headed to the Wii, Nintendo showed the first footage of a new game in the Fire Emblem series. The very brief snippet seemed to consist entirely of an anime cutscene, so nothing resembling gameplay was shown. However, the footage contained brief scenes of a young man fighting for his life in close quarters, and also showed a female character with a sparrow alighting from her outstretched arm. It's reasonable to suspect these two will be the protagonists in the game.

The Fire Emblem series is known for delivering richly complex stories and challenging turn-based battles. Stay tuned to GameSpot for more information about Fire Emblem for the Wii.
