Summary

Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia suffers from minor graphical glitches and minor audio glitches. The graphical glitches are almost exclusive to dialogue, where a checkerboard pattern of slightly darker squares remains in the background. No other graphical glitches occur. The audio glitches are nothing more than crackling if running at 100% speed, turn on audio stretching if the game will not run at 100% speed on your device.

Player experience: Game is playable from start to finish without workarounds, most cutscenes run slowly, but dialogue scenes are near-perfect. All textures, models, lighting effects, and animations play without fail. Amiibo functions exactly as intended. Citra will randomly decide that your emulated SD card no longer exists when attempting to load DLC.

Note: Use of dedicated GPU is highly recommended. Intel Integrated Graphics are typically built for efficiency and power saving.

Note: DLC is finicky with each and every game on the system, this error is not exclusive to FE Echoes. This update was made 4/10/2019 with canary Nightly build 1243.

CPU underclocking in citras system settings improves some games performance, but crashes Echoes after causing audio problems. (Still happening as of October 2020). Because this is a popular performance increase for most games, make sure to NOT do so for echoes. If you still experience crashing at 100% CPU speed, then overclock it a little.
