I disagree, or at least, I doubt it is the case. That logo was literally just the one that they used for Shadow Dragon. It's virtually no different than how Nintendo of Europe had it, where they didn't even bother putting a logo for it at all; they just used simple text that said "Fire Emblem" that looked really sloppy.
It's like when Iwata talked about Super Smash Bros. coming to 3DS and Wii U and had the series logo up on the screen at E3 2011, but no actual work was being done until the following year.
