Two years after the release of ''Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia'', which served as a remake to the original ''Fire Emblem Gaiden'', '''rumors of an unknown fourth 3DS title of the''' '''''Fire Emblem''''' '''series''' '''were brought up''' in an episode of ''Kinda Funny Games Daily''. Information about this game is scarce at best, but a rumor said that it was supposed to be released in the late 2010's, only to be cancelled sometime later. Said game was also supposed to remake one of the older games in the series, though which game it was supposed to remake is unknown.

Since its inception, the ''Fire Emblem'' franchise has received a number of manga adaptations, most of which have been 4Komas. The first series of 4Komas was released between 1994 and 1997, with the first four covering the Archanea Saga, and the last two covering the fourth game, ''Genealogy of the Holy War''. The franchise would continue to receive manga adaptations, until 2005, when ''Fire Emblem: Champion's Sword'' ended its run. However, it started receiving manga adaptations again in 2012, with the release of a short manga adaptation of the then-newly released ''Fire Emblem Awakening''. Meanwhile, production of the 4Koma manga came into an abrupt halt until 2015, when ''Fire Emblem Awakening 4Koma KINGS'' was released.
The mysterious title is speculated to be a remake of an older game in the franchise, but there is no mention as to what that game was supposed to be. Firstly, there has been fan speculation that ''Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War'' was the potential candidate. On the other hand, however, ''Shadows of Valentia'' director Kenta Nakanishi was more interested in doing one base on ''Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade'', mostly due to Roy's popularity, and the game never receiving an international release despite this.<ref>[https://nintendowire.com/news/2017/05/22/fire-emblem-echoes-director-like-remake-binding-blade/ Nintendo Wire article about Nakanishi considering about taking on ''The Binding Blade''] Retrieved July 7th, 2021</ref> Though other old games, such as ''Path of Radiance'', were also brought up, the aforementioned two games are the most notable remake candidates.

The first time the elusive ''Fire Emblem'' game was ever mentioned was in a Halloween 2019 episode of ''Kinda Funny Games Daily'', during a discussion between Greg Miller and ex-Game Informer editor Imran Khan. When they discussed about the game, Khan claimed that the game was in development at some point, but it was cancelled later. He also brought up that the project would soon be revived for the Nintendo Switch, but nothing new has been brought up about the game since. The exact reason as to why the mysterious ''Fire Emblem'' title was shelved is unknown, but poor sales of another Nintendo RPG ''Mario & Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story + Bowser Jr’s Journey'' and the then-recent bankruptcy of its developer AlphaDream, combined with the Nintendo 3DS nearing the end of its life, is what probably led to its cancellation. <ref>[https://www.nintendoenthusiast.com/fire-emblem-3ds-canceled/ Nintendo Enthusiast article about the rumored cancelled game] Retrieved July 7th, 2021</ref>
 
 
 
In an article on the Fire Emblem fansite Serenes Forest, published a few days after the aforementioned episode, longtime fan VincentASM also claimed that the game began development around the same time as ''Fire Emblem: Three Houses''.<ref>[https://serenesforest.net/2019/11/04/rumour-cancelled-fire-emblem-remake-3ds-live-switch/ Serenes Forest Article detailing the rumored game.] Retrieved July 7th, 2021</ref>
 
 
 
Since then, no new evidence regarding the existence of the game has resurfaced online, and, till this day, remains a mystery if this game was ever developed.
