Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem to Feature Custom Protagonist
Players will experience this tale through the eyes of an Altean Army recruit.
06.02.10 - 7:24 PM

The upcoming DS title, Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem ~Hero of Light and Shadow~, which was announced last week, will not be starring series hero Marth. Instead, the game will feature a new, customizable protagonist, called "My Unit". The player will be able to tailor their character's name, gender, hair, face, eyes, and unit type. Interactions with other characters will vary based on the selections made during character creation.

Furthermore, the custom "My Unit" character will take center stage in at least two brand-new story segments. The first story, entitled "Prologue", will explain how the character joins the Altea Army and becomes Marth's stalwart ally. There will also be at least one "side story" that takes place on a brand-new map. Because access to this new content is based on fulfilling certain criteria during other missions, it is currently unclear whether there will be many of these side stories or just one.

Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem ~Hero of Light and Dark~ is slated for a July 15 release in Japan. No North American release information is available at this time.
