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

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

Well I said I would write about Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem at some point, then forget about it until new information comes out. So when deciding on what exactly I wanted to say, here were the three options that came up:

  1. Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem is the greatest thing since sliced bread
  2. Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem is the weirdest combination ever
  3. Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem is the moment that Fire Emblem is now the hottest thing in the world, not Fire Emblem: Awakening.

That last one needed more explaining, so I decided to write about that.
