Nintendo announced today during its Fire Emblem Direct that a new 3DS title in the series would soon be gracing us.

A remake of Fire Emblem Gaiden for the Famicom, the new game will be titled Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valencia, and will release on May 19th. With the tale of Alm and Celica told anew, the game will feature many of Gaiden’s original quirks – map exploration, dungeon crawling, and a whole bevy of other nifty features.

Check back soon for a full, detailed analysis of the trailer.
