Fire Emblem 15 (tentative title) is a tactical role-playing game for the Nintendo 3DS, developed by Intelligent Systems and published by Nintendo. It is the 15th game in the Fire Emblem series. It it set for a 2017 release.
There is an Avatar character available for the player to customise (default name Ellas), which will serve as the main protagonist of the game. The player can customise their Avatar's hair style, hair colour, face, skin tone, build and voice. Additionally, they have the option to add scars and a small amount of accessories, that, unlike in Fire Emblem: Fates are available for either gender. The Avatar is the only character in the game that is able to form supports with every other playable character, while most other characters will only be able to do so with a certain few. The player can also equip clothes to the other units, like in Fire Emblem: Fates.
Like in Fire Emblem: Awakening, units can pair up on the map, making the battles automatically start with both units in it while they move as one on the map. Units also all have their own unique skill, as in Fire Emblem: Fates; however, they can be unequipped now if desired. When the skills activate in a battle, as well as when permoring a critical hit, a cut-in appears on the screen. Various amiibo are also available to be used with the game; some will give new units, while others will supply the player of unique items or weapons.
There are two modes, being Classic and Casual. In Classic Mode, all units that fall during battle will be unable to be used in any future battles, although they will still appear in the hub, explaining that they were too severely injured to fight any more. In Casual Mode, fallen units return after the battle and can be reused in any other battle. Additionally, there are 4 difficulties, being Beginner, Intermediate, Hard, and Lunatic.
There is a hub area called My Castle, as in Fire Emblem: Fates, which is an area within the player's castle walls where a small village can be built for the army to interact.
The area selection map is now known as My Kingdom, where the player has to move over to move around between the different chapters. However, on the map, enemy units can now be randomly encountered, which have to be defeated on a small map before the player can continue. During these battles, all units are healed from the previous battle as usual.
