2010-2020: Reviewing This Decade of Fire Emblem

Fire Emblem New Mystery of the Emblem, Fire Emblem Awakening, Fire Emblem Fates, Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, Fire Emblem Three HousesYes it’s not 2020 at all, and there could be a new Fire Emblem game or spinoff announced for 2020. BUT with Three Houses’ release and DLC coming down the line for it, I feel it’s safe to say this decade of Fire Emblem has wrapped up. Guess that means it’s time to take a look back at one of the most harrowing but most successful decade for the tactical RPG franchise.


The Numbers (13)

Remakes: New Mystery of the Emblem, Echoes: Shadows of Valentia
Mainline Games: Awakening, Fates, Three Houses
Spinoffs: Tokyo Mirage Sessions, Fire Emblem Heroes, Fire Emblem Warriors
Misc: Super Smash Bros (Wii U, Ultimate), Fire Emblem: Cipher, Code Name: S.T.E.A.M, Project X Zone 2

On Recent Final Map Themes in Fire Emblem

I’m going to tell you a true story, one that’s shocking and going to terrify you:

The past three new Fire Emblem games have made the final map theme the theme you hear while facing the final boss/enemies.

Let me emphasize it a bit more.

Past. Three. New. Fire Emblem games. The final map theme plays instead of an individual theme 🙂

Ok, ok, I’m gonna stop playing around! Continue reading

FIRRREEEE EMMMMBLEMMM! Blog Update + Merry Christmas

Hi, name’s Walters…it’s been a while hasn’t it?

Not going to BS you guys or anything: I just haven’t made time to write about Fire Emblem. Like, at all. I’m sincerely hoping that changes next year. My plan is to resume this blog sometime in early January (think like January 8 or 9th). After all, next year is when we’ll get that brand new Fire Emblem for the Switch. Will definitely look to play that.

I also want to do a project involving all the Fire Emblems I’ve played. When I will do that, I have no idea.

Until then, I wish all of you a wonderful Christmas and a great New Year.
