Fire Emblem: Awakening - The Big Casual Mode Debate

Nintendo Life: Fire Emblem: Awakening is finally available in Europe after a couple of additional months of waiting. The series itself is now 23 years old, and is arguably one of the more 'hardcore' franchises that Nintendo owns.

One element Fire Emblem is known for is its punishing levels of difficulty, which has never shown any mercy towards the player. Making a tiny mistake often leads to several hours of gaming being washed down the drain. It can be frustrating at times, but it's this ruthless nature that keeps many coming back. (3DS, Fire Emblem: Awakening)

I think it's a great idea - makes the game feel like Final Fantasy Tactics Advance and lets new players get into the franchise. Much prefer Classic myself, mind, since death is one of the biggest USPs of the franchise.

That said, I wish it also had an Iron Man mode like XCOM, perhaps one that over-writes autosaves as soon as a character dies. No more quitting and reloading every single level!
