Nintendo’s Fire Emblem series made its North American debut back in 2003 on the Game Boy Advance, with titles released on the DS, GameCube, and Wii afterwards. However, the series has had a far richer and longer history in its native country of Japan, with older entries dating back to the NES and Super NES. It’s fortunate that Nintendo eventually decided to start translating later titles, as the series has gained a reputation for providing a high-quality mix of strategy and role-playing elements. Fire Emblem: Awakening, the first game in the series for the 3DS, is no exception. Providing a genuine challenge, a well-developed cast, and a large amount of content, it is the latest must-have title for the handheld.
