Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade Returns…For JP Wii U Users

Fire Emblem Binding Blade 4You know, my FE work isn’t exactly the cleanest. And it probably still won’t be, but I’ll do what I can to point out any news involving the series on the site. Gonna put it out there that if you like to write some FE pieces on the site, just email me (Waltersfe at yahoo dot com). It’ll help if you show me you can write so don’t just send me an invitation. Otherwise once I can see that you can, you can write without me looking over your shoulder; just with the knowledge that if it’s something bad, I’ll delete it 😀

Anyways, onto some news…

How Has The Weapons System Evolved in Fire Emblem?

Fire Emblem 2Would you believe me if I told you that past Fire Emblem games didn’t have a weapon triangle system? Well, I’m about to tell you past Fire Emblem games didn’t have a weapons system. Now, whether it was because of the limitations of the hardware or if it was something that Intelligent Systems didn’t think of until Genealogy of The Holy War, or it was because of the many challenges of Genealogy of The Holy War would’ve presented sans one (lengthy battles, more enemies, large maps, an improved support system, etc), who knows.

Let’s go talk about this feature then.

Left For Dead: Hard, Maniac, & Lunatic Modes in Fire Emblem

I was looking for something related to this post. Note the "was" part.

I was looking for something related to this post. Note the “was” part.

Tired of the static Fire Emblem modes where all you do is just try and outwit your opponents and you’re usually stronger than them in stats? Actually, you’re probably not, considering most of you just like it the way it is, and you want to keep your players alive. Well, too bad. In past FE games — or mostly the ones that never got released in the West —  there was no difficulty levels, but the game was hard anyways. Starting with the unreleased in the West Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade for the GBA, an option to make it harder surfaced…

Let’s just say since then, things have gotten a bit crazier since.

The last installment of What Is Fire Emblem is literally going to just be me talking about…Fire Emblem. Not the game, but the actual Fire Emblem, and what they’ve have meant (or didn’t mean) in each game. After all, why call a game something if the title is not gonna be important? Well…
