What is Fire Emblem: Shadows of Valentia? Here's How it Differs From the Rest of the Series

Nintendo released a new trailer for Shadows of Valentia, which is a full 3D remake of the classic Fire Emblem Gaiden for the Famicom. This will be the first time the game has received an official English translation (fans did the job a few years ago).

The new trailer is short, but there's a lot of talk about the game's heroes, Princess Celicia and her friend Alm, and the choices they need to make in the furious war they're entangled in. We also get a look at the game's overworld map and 3D battle scenes.

Shadows of Valentia comes to 3DS on May 19. It's just one of several new Fire Emblem games Nintendo has lined up for the franchise.
