Fire Emblem: Awakening is the latest addition to the Fire Emblem franchise, a series which has only left the shores of Japan in the last decade. It’s also the first to launch on Nintendo’s 3DS, with full 3D capabilities. This strategy role-playing game is rich in character development and has a robust plot. You play as the Avatar, a character you get to customize yourself, and befriend Chrom, prince of Ylisse and captain of the Shepherds, a group of soldiers who protect the realm. As you make your way through the story, you level up and gain more characters to use in your battles, and also gain the chance to develop relationships. Permadeath is the norm in Fire Emblem games, but Awakening has a Casual mode that is more lenient for newer players. Does this destroy the integrity of the series?
