Pocket Primer: A complete history of Fire Emblem

Pocket Gamer: With Fire Emblem: Awakening just around the corner, we thought we'd take a quick trip down memory lane to look back at the complete history of this venerable strategy series.

While it wasn't the first tactical RPG, Fire Emblem was still one of the earliest games in which grid-based tactical battles were mashed up with RPG-style character progression. It also featured permadeath, so defeated units would be lost forever. (3DS, Fire Emblem: Awakening)
