A new mainline Fire Emblem game is finished and awaiting release, according to a recognised industry insider.
Emily Rogers, who has a strong track record of accurate Nintendo reporting, claimed on Famiboards that a new Fire Emblem title has been “finished for over a year”.
According to Rogers, the game was originally intended to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the series, which was in 2020.
The game is reportedly a “collaboration between Intelligent Systems, Koei Tecmo and Gust (a division of Koei Tecmo Holdings)”, and and the graphics are said to be “an improvement over Three Houses”.

The game’s main character will have “strange red and blue hair,” Rogers claims, and “his mother is a dragon”.
The game will also reportedly have an ‘Emblems’ feature which lets players summon Fire Emblem characters from the past, another nod to its original purpose as a 30th anniversary celebration.
Earlier this month VGC published a Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes preview video showing off gameplay from the early areas of the game.
Three Hopes is a new story set in the same universe as 2019’s Three Houses. Whereas Three Houses was a turn-based strategy game in the traditional Fire Emblem style, Three Hopes is another Dynasty Warriors style spin-off, much like 2017’s Fire Emblem Warriors.
Players take control of a new character called Shez, and join one of the world’s three houses, each of which has its own unique storyline.
A Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes Limited Edition will include an artbook, a tapestry map of Fódlan, a set of five acrylic figurines and a character postcard set.
