Yeah, it sounds great and I'd be more excited if I had a Switch already. For now it's just, "I'll get around to it eventually."

Mm, with a Spring 2019 target, that could mean anywhere between March and the end of May, depending on which side of the fiscal they wanna land on. A shame it's too early for a Switch price drop but maybe we'll get lucky with Black Friday sales and similar.

With me getting Vesperia in December (?) and the Persona Dance games in early winter 2019 (not to mention my backlog), I'll probably be too busy to also get a new system and game in the mean time, so yeah, Black Friday sounds good. Getting my PS4 at that special price felt nice.

All those protagonists come across as a little Suikoden-y to me (maybe I'm just nostalgic)

Looks like they're implementing battles where a unit controls a squad of bros? That could be rad.

Seems like you can even customize their formations. Maaaan if they're just borrowing little Suikoden mechanics left and right that's pretty sweet. Ain't like Suikoden is using them.

Yeah it looks a lot like the Suikoden 5 war system. Unexpected but pretty cool.

...Fire Emblem need a cooking minigame. C'mon let's make that happen, the FEH chef unit variants will sell themselves.

Names for those three characters are apparently

Edelgard von Fresberg
Dimitri Alexandre Bladud
Claude von Regan

Gonna have to mentally edit Edelgard down to just Edel otherwise I'll forever misread her name as "Edgelord"

...Bladud. Blah dud. Are you a blah enough dud to rescue the president?

Have a map. Sure is a map alright.

I pulled a couple times for Karla, mostly wanting to vore her for Wrath to put on Mia. I drew her after like 30 orbs, and decided to look into her breakdown on gamepress before I went through with my plan. Turns out she's considered Ayra/Thor tier, and the one I drew is +SPD -DEF which is a pretty great IV.

I guess I'm using Karla and putting Mia back on the bench... :pacdown

Nice! The raisin I didn't go for her is that I felt she literally looked like an Ayra clone, and I already have Ayra. That said, I was surprised how quickly she kicked my ass in her lunatic map, so imagine both of them on the same team for maps that don't allow duplicates...

It seems that Mia also is a similar style fighter, which is why I was fishing for wrath to inherit.

The amount of regular Tharjas I've gotten while fishing for bride Tharja is sad... A normal person would give up and wait for her to eventually come back on a legendary banner. Sigh.

Heh, at least vanilla Tharja is still solid. That'll be a strong merge someday.

I guess I should have mentioned they were mostly 3-star. I just trash 'em.

Got a 5-Star Sanaki. Already have one I don't use, and didn't even bother to level all the way to 40. I guess I'll vore her triangle adept skill. Seems more useful on a blue unit than a red unit anyway. Now, which one...

Geez Karla is fast, 47 base speed and +6 every second turn. Her defenses are bad, but barring swordbreaker she's pretty safe to take a hit so I paired her with Serra so I can keep her healed.

Nice! Funny because I consider her sort of an Ayra clone and my Ayra has the Quickened Pulse seal on her right now too.

I'm liking these Tempest Trials. Using regular Nino as my bonus ally and for most rounds, I have all 4 original units still surviving at the start of the last round.

Yeah I'm using my new team of Karla/Nephenee/Serra/Julius and it's going pretty smooth. Two wrath users on the one team means a lot of special moves.

@TP She does totally look like a serious Viki lol!

Congrats Bier! Do you have the crystals to just push her to 40 instead of training her all the way up? Then all you have to decide is what team she fits into.

Hmm, probably. I've never leveled anyone that way before. Usually I use the crystals to get lower tiered units to 20 before I promote them.
