So next week’s gonna be the debut of Fire Emblem Fates in North America. I’m excited. Some of you are excited. How are we celebrating that excitement? Well, here’s how I’M celebrating that excitement…
If you’re a long time Fire Emblem player, or even a new Fire Emblem player, lots of things are kept in your mind and are iconic.
The game over of Fire Emblem is one of them, and for those who have played it, you know how horrible you feel for letting an important character die. Let’s determine which one’s the best. Though I have my own rankings!
UPDATE: So, I had this post in drafts since Sept of last year. I thought it was instead just best to just have a list that organizes it. Maybe I’ll offer opinions on this later…
February 19 is when Fire Emblem: Fates will be making its debut to North America. Obviously a lot has happened since it came out in June for Japan, but once again, I expect to be adding another FE game to my collection.
So, how am I preparing for Fates? Well…
I’ve watched the American and Japanese versions of this video so many times I’ve lost count. I probably should’ve been doing something more important, but I ended up watching this video of a character in a game that’s not even out yet in the West.
I still love Fire Emblem after all.
I still remember when no one talked about this series because it was too hard, tactics heavy, etc (also wasn’t marketed well). And remember it as a second tier (maybe third tier) franchise. It certainly is not third tier anymore. And while it’s popularity in Japan is a factor, it’s starting to become THAT series that people need to get invested in. It doesn’t have to be Fates — just from talking to people or surfing the next, it just gets people to look deeper into the franchise. And while I have no idea if Fates is any good (literally tried so hard to avoid spoilers, but thanks to closet FE fan Sakurai I guess not!), I’ll enjoy the ride that I never thought would happen in any lifetime.
From potentially getting phased out (like F-Zero) to being a prominent fixture for Nintendo. Beautiful.
This better get me that FE4 or Judgral remake though
Well, just when we thought we were done with all the Fire Emblem news this year.
Now I have yet another game to look out for, and I didn’t want to do that. As much as I might like crossovers, I heard Project x Zone was not so good. I can only hope they learned from the first one and will fix everything, but now that we have Chrom and Lucina joining the game, I’ll have to keep an eye out for it.
What are your thoughts on FE continuing to reach new heights? Can’t imagine you thought this was possible 5, 10 years ago!

Literally the Judgral chronology slayed me!
Let’s just say I took a tour through the sounds of the very first Fire Emblem game. For me, with game music, I admire the classics. There’s something about them that makes it work, and soothes me.
There’s not a lot that stands out to me when it comes to listening to this one.
