  1. We don't actually know they'll have different class colors though. It seems like the class colors might just be tied to the kingdom, which still would leave them mostly uniform. Fire Emblem always had vibrant hair colors. Kozaki specifically didn't like it though, which is why specially Awakening really pared down on them and Fates although having some extra variety still was pretty limited.
  2. I'd guess they just look very different because they likely started building their designs from Greil and Ike in PoR who didn't really look similar either. Byleth ends up with a more formal look due to his eventual teacher role since they didn't want to give him a mercenary outfit just for a prologue.
  3. They should at least have generic colors that each unit can take doesn't matter if they have an actual unique mode for the class or not. It's weird that it took until Echoes before they implemented a basic idea like that (and even so it they were still missing some obvious colors). Although it feels like the colors here might be based on the unit's kingdom, considering how we've seen Edelgard red colored in several promotions, alongside Dorothea.
  4. I could see it only happening around March or so of the next year. The combat animations looked really rough in that teaser, and it felt like they just did a reveal to show something considering how they were delaying the game, but after looking at the state of the game during that showing I could see it ending up as a late 2019 game.
  5. "Waifu" wasn't really a common term before that point. The term explodes exactly around 2012/2013 for the internet in general, not just FE fandom. https://trends.google.com/trends/explore?date=all&q=waifu
  6. Well, technically Awakening Tiki does have different bangs from her previous designs (in addition to being an adult and having a smaller tiara - this new girl's tiara seems even closer to Tiki's original one than Awakening's), so, that could be a redesigned Tiki. Although, yes, declaring that it's almost certainly her seems like a mistake. Looking back, I guess the one point in favor of it is that the Goddess doesn't seem to be a Manakete or have green hair, so that dragon girl basically doesn't seem to be mentioned in the narration in spite of the splash image. That could point to her being a guest character of sorts rather than tied to the mythology of that continent.
  7. Keep in mind that when Robin joins, they aren't really an "army" at all.
  8. They also removed various romantic S ranking from Kana and Soleil, turned the two homosexual supports into generic ones while they were unique in Japan, and there was the disaster that was their voice choice for Effie. 8-4 also handled things like changing Lucina's/Owain's supports to be more platonic in a much smoother way than Tree House's work with Fates. They removed the swimsuits and didn't replace them with anything, leaving some elements (like max bond) with no prize at all. There were also various smaller issues, like how they didn't write Inigo's dialogue with the possibility of him being Chrom's son in mind, making several sentences that should have remained more ambiguous sound out of place. They also changed female Corrin's married Conquest/Birthright ending to be the same as the male one, not realizing that female and male endings were written in different ways in order to match up with each other. Some of the additions to the dialogue also are quite odd in context. It's clear they disliked the direction of Fates' story, but they never attempted to change the story itself, just flavorful dialogue... which often just made scene dumber, like when they added a bit of dialogue for Xander with him talking about how if good people stand doing nothing, then evil wins... in the middle of a scene that's about Xander and Corrin just watching while Garon kills people who dare to protest against him invading Hoshido (and right after a line from the original about who they must stand there and can't act at that point).
  9. I'd guess Sacred Stones. You'll play initial chapters commanding people from the various kingdoms, then some war starts and you side with one of them. However, later all main characters will unite to bring an end to the conflict. Maybe they'll make some characters exclusive to each route though.
  10. If he's really customizable, I'd guess what they'll do is say that the avatar is a prodigy so even though his default look seems adult, a younger looking character could still fit.
  11. Celica is another character added by IS suggestion, exactly like Lucina. So, if Lucina is shafted due to that, it's not odd Celica is handled in the same way.
  12. Technically they weren't even Warriors Amiibo, which is why they used Awakening/Shadow Dragon artwork. The next FE Amiibo anyway likely will be tied to the next mainline game - either characters from there or even something like a Lyn Amiibo to get her as a guest there if they go with established characters.
  13. Actually, the original Japanese marketing featured the female Corrin when they were marketing Conquest, while male for Birthright. NOA dumped all that though and just went with male Corrin.
  14. Niles still has the same moveset used by his npc self. Azura and Oboro have similar initial basic strings, but Azura's later attacks and charge attacks are completely unique.
  15. Well, Azura is getting a full page to show her off, while Oboro and Niles are cramped into a single page segment smaller than the one for the 4 costumes. I'd guess if Niles had a new moveset/fighting style compared to his npc self and other archers they'd be highlighting it there, but that doesn't seem to be the case.
