A new Fire Emblem title is in development for Nintendo Switch, the company announced during a Nintendo Direct presentation for the franchise.

The unnamed game is set to debut sometime in 2018. It will be the first Fire Emblem title to be released on home consoles in more than a decade: The most recent one was the Wii game Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn, which launched in November 2007 in North America.

This Fire Emblem title is separate from Fire Emblem Warriors, which Nintendo and Koei Tecmo announced last week; that game is coming to both Switch and Nintendo 3DS this fall. However, there’s no word yet on what kind of game the Switch-exclusive Fire Emblem title will be.

Fire Emblem Warriors appears to be a game in the vein of Hyrule Warriors — a crossover between a long-running Nintendo franchise and Koei Tecmo’s Dynasty Warriors series. The Zelda spinoff was released in 2014 on 3DS and Wii U.
