More mature rating for Fire Emblem If, plus Amiibo support
New details have emerged from Japan, giving fans a chance to see the boxart for the newest Fire Emblem games. What is most interesting is the more mature CERO C rating, which is intended for ages 15 and up. For comparison, Fire Emblem: Awakening was rated with a CERO B rating, which would be for ages 12 and up, as well as a T rating from the ESRB in North America. This could mean that when the next Fire Emblem game reaches American shores, it may either be toned down, or it may even receive an M rating, which would be a first for a Nintendo franchise. Nintendo is certainly no stranger to publishing mature rated games, as they’ve published Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge, Bayonetta 2, Geist, Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem, and now the Fatal Frame franchise.
Also of note would be the Amiibo logo on the box art, indicating that the game will support Nintendo’s popular figurines. Exactly which figures that will be supported is still unknown, but it is probably safe to guess that the four current Fire Emblem Amiibo will have some effect. It’s also possible that there will be Amiibo made specifically for the game. It may even be possible that there will be features accessible for New 3DS users exclusively. More details will be posted as more information is released.
