Fire Emblem Fates (ファイアーエムブレム, if Faia Emuburemu Ifu, lit. Fire Emblem If in Japan) is a Japanese tactical role-playing game for the Nintendo 3DS, developed by Intelligent Systems, and published by Nintendo. It is the fourteenth game in the Fire Emblem series. It was released on June 25, 2015 in Japan, and 2016 outside of Japan.
This title features the first title split, in which two different versions of the game exist, each one with a unique story. In the E3 2015 Digital Event, Fire Emblem Fates's official localized name was revealed. GameInformer, in June 2015, revealed that like Japan, North America will receive two different versions called Birthright for the Hoshido side and Conquest for the Nohr side.
The game is the first of the Fire Emblem series to feature amiibo support.
Scanning amiibo in this game allows the scanned to appear in "My Castle", allowing players to receive gifts from and battle with them.
If the player scans a figure enough times, the scanned character will man one of the shops in the player's "My Castle".
