Need cleanup!
This article or section needs to be cleaned up, either its format, general style, or wording. It may be minor or major, but even subtle changes matter.

The reason given was: Compared to the other remake pages, this is one is pretty lackluster, even considering the lack of a western release.

Fire Emblem: New Mystery of the Emblem is a remake of Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem, developed by Intelligent Systems and published by Nintendo. It is the second Fire Emblem remake for the Nintendo DS. It was released on July 15, 2010 in Japan.

The game stars Marth, the hero of Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the original Mystery of the Emblem as he fights in a conflict known as the "War of Heroes". He is accompanied by his trusted friend, an Altean knight and hero of the war completely forgotten by history, referred to as the "Hero of Shadow".

Players can customize the unit, who's named Kris by default, including their appearance, class and growth rates. New prologue and sidequest chapters heavily feature your custom character and also offer opportunities to recruit previously unobtainable characters.

Changes compared to Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem

  • Frey is confirmed to have been the canonical sacrifice in the prologue of Shadow Dragon.
  • Altean recruits Luke, Roderick, Cecil, and Ryan, while still irrelevant in the main story, are heavily featured in the remake’s prologue chapters as part of Kris and Katarina's platoon.


Changes compared to Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem

  • The Iote's Shield is found in Ch. 13x rather than Ch. 3.
  • Fire Emblem: Archanea Saga was remade as a bonus feature in Extra Mode: Unlocked after Prologue 8 of the main campaign has been completed, the remade episodes appear with the time limits, voice acting, and convoy feature removed. The story is told using character portraits taken from Shadow Dragon and the main story chapters in New Mystery of the Emblem, with some of the dialogue and victory conditions altered and enemy reinforcements diminished.
  • A number of characters who originally died can instead be recruited, such as Michalis.
  • Every character that only appeared in Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light, Fire Emblem Archanea Saga, and/or Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon returns in this installment and are playable in this version.
  • Dragonstones function similar as in The Binding Blade and The Sacred Stones as the user transforms for a single attack and depletes one of its uses.
  • A new system is added in which characters will get items or experience for themselves, with some things that can only be obtained in this manner, although the rate for finding either depends on the time spent in the real world.
  • Base Conversations similar to Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn were added: If two units that can form conversations are in the same chapter together, 1 Friendship point can be earned with that unit. If enough points are obtained, they can have a conversation in the Battle Preparations menu before the next fight. There are 3 Base Conversations one unit can have with another unit, and on the third one, the player receives a Bond item that boosts a stat when used for 1 chapter. Also, if a character uses the Bond Drop item, the support bonus from all partners is increased to the maximum available rank and base conversations with compatible units are unlocked, except in the case of Avatar, where it only affects Marth, Ryan, Luke, Roderick and Katarina (although strangely, only conversations Katarina and Avatar 1-2 can be viewed instantly).
  • Barst, Cord, and Bord can perform a Triangle Attack: Previously, it was a movement to Palla, Catria, and Est only.
  • Every chapter's allowed unit limit has been increased by 1 to account for the Player's Character.

Every Character, unlike in Shadow Dragon, can be recruited in the same playthrough without having to kill other units. As such, it is possible to have every character recruited and alive on one playthrough.
