I was a bit disappointed with Shadow Dragon. I had come to expect a certain level of narrative from the series and the fact that the developers didn't take the time to rewrite the story to match modern standards did not sit well with me. Here's hoping the push just as hard in the story area as they do in the tactical design.

Loved fire Emblem on the GC. I'd like to play it on handheld. So I can play it on the go.

Fail, why keep to do remakes? We want a New title! The serie is went up a lot, with new features, i dont' get the point to loose them again, to play a Snes title. I can justify Shadow Dragon, just because was the FIRST Fire Emblem, but this one? We will get remakes of the whole serie? Come on...the lasts Fire Emblem are Wonderful, keep release new Fire Emblems.

They release the new remakes for the fans. The old games are dated. They make these so that people can experience new modes of gameplay and such. All in all it's testing for the next new title

The fans disliked Shadow Dragon, which bodes poorly for this. Shadow Dragon still felt extremely dated, which bodes poorly for this. Shadow Dragon was a terrible step backwards which wasn't even that fun to play, so I'm not hopeful for this.

No. It's not like HG/SS at all. The difference is that the fans clamoured for Heart Gold and Soul Silver, and Game Freak took the time to bring a game that has aged well up to the standards of the latest Pokemon games.

Shadow Dragon, however, was giving a game that has aged terribly new graphics and a halfassed attempt at bringing it up to today's standards with badly implemented gimmicks that a large amount of the fans hated.

If Intelligent Systems actually want to learn from what went wrong with Shadow Dragon, then this might turn out okay. As it is, however, I'm going to maintain that Shadow Dragon never should've happened as a game on it's own. We should have had a Mystery of the Emblem remake from the start, not essentially releasing Shadow Dragon and then two/three years later releasing Shadow Dragon again with the second half of the game.

Anyway, the story of Shadow Dragon isn't something so cool, i mean, i really don't feel the need to see what happened next, and if this will be like Shadow Dragon, i will skip it.
I hoped to see a nice announcement at E3, for FE's serie, now i really think we won't get any new FE...i am disappointed

Probably a big skip. I was utterly disappointed with Shadow Dragon.

I like the subtle change in art style since Shadow Dragon used so far. Less brown and brighter colours fits FE's style better. I'll stay optimistic about this.

It doesn't make sense to me that they'd remake the same game twice, only the second time has the full game. They should have, as mentioned earlier, just made this one. But I'm hoping IS can make a good game, since we all know the can. We're fans of the series for a reason.

I don't know why everyone was dissappointed with Shadow Dragon. It was an amazing game and remake. Those who played Blazing Sword and Sacred Stones for the GBA LOVED it. However it seems that those obsessed with the GC and WII titles (Radiance Series) were dissappointed. Not all FEs are the same... and to be honest, I hope they DON'T make another Radiance game because the story was finished, and ended nicely. The graphics from Shadow Dragon were amazing and the characters as lovable as ever. I don't see why fans were expecting better plot... the only really plot heavy Fire Emblem was Radiant Dawn in my opinion...

I think it's good to just remake it from how it was, like just revamp it as opposed to make it a new game in a way. I for one never played the original Shadow Dragon, but knowing it was the first Fire Emblem, they stayed true to what it was and just modernized it a bit, which I feel is fine. People are too obsessed with adding a whole bunch when it is not needed, because I first played Path of Radiance but Shadow Dragon was still amazing, knowing its origins.

I agree with Raikita on this one. The point of these remakes in brief was 1) to give the people new to Fire Emblem (like the US, who've been in it since FE6/7) a chance to explore Fire Emblem's "roots", and 2) to those who DID play the original ones in the 1980's-1990's to relive that familiar nostalgia of the games, albeit more modernized in some features.

Even though I've only played RD and SD, I feel it's interesting to see more of the Fire Emblem "Classic Days", when the series was developing into what people have seen since a decade ago. I'm kinda surprised they didn't include Gaiden's remake in this yet, though I can see why. Besides, I don't think many westerners would like the idea of paying HP to deal spells with their mages. XD

You could say that between these remakes, that they're developing something even more amazing; they're just giving us a couple of games to make sure we stay sharp and on our toes. 8D The next new one will be amazing, no doubt. (Given the world doesn't end/ Nintendo/IS doesn't go bankrupt. lol)
