Book / Developer Commentary:

Inheritors of the Light <Tentative Title>

Text on the ad itself:

The Fire Emblem series continues with its familiar mechanics, but with a story of a brand new group of heroes.
The parents pass on their hopes and dreams to their children… an epic story that crosses two generations begins now…

Raw Japanese text:


光をつぐもの (仮称)
