Hey Poor Player's Anthony Spivey writes - "In less than a week, Nintendo will be releasing the next installment of the Fire Emblem series to the United States. Or rather, two versions. For whatever reason, Fire Emblem Fates has been broken up into two games, with a third campaign coming at a later date. It is an exciting time for fans of the franchise, though I fear that there may some dark times ahead. Now, this does not cover the so-called “Controversial” petting mechanic, so rest assured on that."
Fire Emblem Fates and Fire Emblem: Three Houses both contain multiple routes that change the outcome of the story, but the 3DS games far outperform the most recent Fire Emblem game in regard to routes. classes, and difficulty levels.
