"Fire Emblem is a series steeped in tradition. For such a heralded and long-lasting series, the West has only seen five of the eleven Fire Emblem games released thus far. The latest, and the first that has hit the Nintendo 3DS, is Fire Emblem: Awakening. I have very limited experience with the franchise. I am talking about someone who owns all of the North American releases yet have completed zero of them. That has changed with Fire Emblem: Awakening, and for good reason too."
