Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia

Despite some annoyances and eventual dullness, Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia succeeds in keeping the ball rolling after the giants that were Awakening and Fates. Like those, it embraces both casual gamers and a more hardcore Fire Emblem audience by providing an easier mode, where downed units come back; and a harder traditional setup, where death is permanent. Hopefully, through the newly introduced Echoes series, Nintendo will further explore the relatively vast backlog of Fire Emblem games that have yet to make it to the outside of Japan, and also give them a deeper overhaul than the one that was executed on Fire Emblem Gaiden.
