Nintendo announced a new Fire Emblem during its Direct today. The trailer featured characters from the series’ past, like Marth. It also showed a new character with red and blue hair.

It will release for Switch on January 20.

Along with traditional grid-based battles, the trailer also showed the hero walking around a castle town. Marth and this new protagonist are also able to fuse together into one being.

Intelligent Systems, the franchise’s developer, is back for the new game.
