Then all of a sudden, Serenes Forest started advertising Fire Emblem: Shin Monshou no Nazo.

And I ended up learning how to use an emulator/rom to go play it.

Now, let’s get this out of the way, so all you newbies of the franchises and all you FE vets will take a grand look at the series’s history! (Credit for info is from Serenes Forest and Wikipedia.)
