Because we are doing a Theme Week For Fire Emblem, I thought that it is only fair to share my thoughts on the series as well. To be honest, I am not much of a Fire Emblem Fan, not because of not liking it, but because FE and I have never really collided. I have always been a home console gamer and I don’t dabble much with Handhelds, so I have never experienced a Fire Emblem title, though I have always enjoyed RPG and strategy games.
My only real experience with FE comes from maining characters like Ike, Marth & Robin in Super Smash Bros For Wii U (and Ike & Marth in Smash Bros Brawl Wii) and playing a demo of Fire Emblem: Fates Conquest at Barcelona Games World last year. After my experience with FE: Fates, I can see why people enjoy it so much and I would certainly look forward to playing Fire Emblem Warriors on the Nintendo Switch when it comes out and also Fire Emblem Heroes on Mobile Devices later this week. I see these titles as a stepping stone to encourage gamers to look at other franchises other than those that they are accustomed to and by using their most favourable characters from the series, I am sure these two titles will win plenty of hearts over in time for Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows Of Valentia when it releases on 3DS.
I have fond memories of playing with the Fire Emblem Characters in Smash Bros Wii U and watch my Brother and Sister play with Ike & Robin and pound the absolute hell out of each other that it is quite a spectacle to watch. I find Marth is a good character in Smash along with Lucina as they have quite powerful counters that can instantly change the flow of battle.
Well, that is my thoughts on Fire Emblem, if you would like to share your experiences, or help encourage me to take up interest in Fire Emblem, please be sure to send us an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org or leave us a comment below.
