About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

17. 'Fire Emblem 2018' (Switch)

Fire Emblem: Three Houses is a turn-based tactical RPG that adds strategic twists to battles, with formations of troops supporting individual units on the battlefield.

Chris "Atom" DeAngelus: Fire Emblem 2018 is pure potential. We know almost nothing about it besides the fact that it will be the first console Fire Emblem game since the Wii, but that's also what makes it exciting. The franchise had been slowly dwindling until Fire Emblem Awakening revived it, and since then, it's become one of Nintendo's mainstays. This will be the first time in over a decade that Intelligent Systems and Nintendo have been able to make a Fire Emblem title that is a big-budget release, and it's exciting to see. The game could cement the franchise's future or ensure that it's just a brief revival. Regardless, all Fire Emblem fans are keeping a close eye on it.

Andreas Salmen: Nintendo has been very quiet about 2018 releases, except for a few ports and announced games. We know nothing about the new Fire Emblem for Switch, except it should come this year. I love the 3DS games in the series, but I'm curious to see out if Nintendo manages to revise the formula and take a few risks like it did with last year's The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Mario Odyssey. The change to the more graphically capable Switch should, at the very least, enable a new coat of paint and a few gameplay innovations.

Thomas Wilde: I have a very complicated relationship with the Fire Emblem franchise, and it's likely to continue until one of us dies. It awakens my manic perfectionism.
