Waifus and husbandos basically. I remember people just talking about all the shipping combinations you can do lol. Story was nice as well. Gameplay was a nice update and they made it much more easy and added a no perma death option which were reasons why many didn't like the old fe games.

I wish Nintendo could revive other old and dead ips as well some day.
