Fire Emblem Fates, known as Fire Emblem If in Japan, will launch in North America and Europe next year, Nintendo announced at E3 2015 today.

Two versions of the franchise’s new installment will be launched, providing players with the ability to fight an opposing force or join the other side and try to make changes from within.

For the first time in the series, players take on the role of the main character and command an army, while struggling to decide which path to follow: their blood relatives or the family that raised them.

The game is scheduled to launch on 3DS in 2016.
