Today's Nintendo Direct presentation brought plenty of surprises, including lots of information on the next Nintendo 3DS Fire Emblem, which will arrive in 2016.

For the first time in a Fire Emblem game, your player created character won't just be a side player in the greater story. The game will revolve around you and the choices you make.

Fire Emblem on 3DS will present two conflicting factions for you to side with: the peaceful Hoshido or the war-like Nohr. The characters you meet and big events will stay the same, but your choice will have a major impact on the overall story and how you play. Nintendo recommends Hoshido for newcomers to the series and for players who want a traditional Fire Emblem experience. The Nohr campaign will be more complex and challenging, as you seek to start a revolution from within your kingdom.

Watch the trailer above to see the game in action, and our gallery of images below give you an even closer look at the characters and setting.
