Fire Emblem: Shin Monshō no Nazo ~Hikari to Kage no Eiyū~ is a tactical role-playing remake of Fire Emblem: Monshō no Nazo, developed by Intelligent Systems and published by Nintendo. It is the second Fire Emblem remake for the Nintendo DS. The game also contains a version of BS Fire Emblem: Akaneia Senki in its Extra Mode.

The game stars Marth, the hero of Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the original Monshō no Nazo as he fights in a conflict known as the "War of Heroes". He is accompanied by his trusted friend, an Altean knight and unsung hero of the war, referred to as the "Hero of Shadow".

The player can customize this new character, such as choosing their name, gender, facial appearance and starting class. New prologue and sidestory chapters heavily feature the new character and offer chances to recruit new and previously unobtainable characters.

  • Gameplay features include four difficulty levels; Normal, Hard, Maniac and Lunatic. In addition there are two modes of play; a "Casual mode" where your units will not die permanently when they fall in battle and "Classic mode" where death is permanent as is the tradition of all previous Fire Emblem games.
  • Like in Shadow Dragon players can connect to the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection to battle against another player on multiplayer-exclusive battle maps. Players can loan characters to use in the singleplayer mode and access an online shop to purchase rare and exclusive items using the in-game currency. New to Shin Monshō no Nazo is the option to download exclusive episodes.
  • One year has passed since the War of Shadows (the conflict featured in Shadow Dragon) ended. The Dollhrian Empire, led by the fearsome Shadow Dragon Medeus, was toppled thanks to the combined efforts of Prince Marth of Altea and Duke Hardin of Aurelis. A youth visits Altea castle, hoping to become one of Marth's trusted knights. This youth would one day become the titular "Hero of Shadow", Marth's trusted ally who supports him from the shadows.
  • Another year later, Marth receives an imperial order from Hardin, now emperor of the newly established holy kingdom of Akaneia. He is to suppress a rebellion that broke out in the kingdom of Grust, which is occupied by Akaneia. Although Marth has his doubts about this order, he has no choice but to fulfil his oath to Akaneia and leaves Altea on an expedition.

Another Century's Episode: R, abbreviated as A.C.E.: R, is a mecha action video game developed by From Software and published by Banpresto and Namco-Bandai. It will be released for the PlayStation 3 in August 19, 2010.

A new dynamic shooting mode called Chase Mode has been added to the game. This mode is similar to arcade shooters wherein the player's machine moves on rails and leaves the targeting weapons for the player to control. Each chase mode section precedes a boss battle; the examples released so far include the battle against the Behemoth from Full Metal Panic! and the battle against Nora Polyansky from Macross Zero. It is currently unknown if the player can change the unit which participates in chase mode.

It has been announced that in addition to charge attacks, a new ability called Burst Attack will be appearing in this installment. Burst attack is available to all units, and is a special charge attack that changes depending on what pilot the player currently have in your machine. There are currently no known examples of new attacks gained by switching pilots yet. On that note, this is the first title in the A.C.E. series that allows to swap pilots between machines.

  • It was announced earlier that, with a few exceptions, background music will be Super Robot Wars-style instrumentals.
  • Acid Black Cherry will provide the themes for A.C.E.: R. The opening theme is named "Re:Birth". The single will be released on 8/18.
