Fire Emblem Awakening - Nintendo 3DS

Product Description

Fire Emblem Awakening offers a unique blend of in-battle strategy, vast character customization, and lush 3D cinematic graphics that appeal to a wide range of gamers. In this game, you'll join Chrom, brother to Ylisse's empress and commander of its forces, in a fantasy world teetering on the brink of war. It's your duty to guide a team of Ylisse's finest soldiers--knights, mages, archers, and more--against the marauding Plegian bandits. To succeed, you will need to carefully choose the units you take into battle. As you lead your team through battles across maps that span entire kingdoms, your army will grow. Some characters are willing to join you quickly, while others may need more persuasion. Each character earns experience in battle, leveling up and gaining strength and abilities as they do so. It's up to you to guide their moves, choose their weapons, and direct their attacks.

Story

The world is ruled by the Divine Dragon Naga, with a fondness for humans, and the Fell Dragon, Grima, destroyer of humans.

Prince Chrom of the Halidom of Ylisse and the Shepherds, his personal militia, find you collapsed without memory. They help you to your feet, so you join them on their journey.

The Risen, undead soldiers of unknown origin are plaguing the land. A mysterious warrior wields a second treasured Falchion, which should not even exist.

The neighboring theocracy of Plegia is populated by worshippers of the wicked dragon. Are these troubling events connected somehow?

As you fight alongside Chrom and his Shepherds, you are pulled into a major conflict that will change the world forever.

Gameplay

Lead Your Warriors Into Battle

Move your units along a grid-shaped battlefield and devise the perfect plan of attack. You'll need to account for terrain, weapons, and warrior classes. Even the personal bond between allies can sway the tide of battle. Every decision counts?and any one of them can mean the difference between victory and defeat.

Strengthen Your Bond With Allies

The Support feature lets two allies standing next to each other fight together as a team, strengthening their bond as they converse and build a relationship on the battlefield. This allows for enhanced abilities in a single turn?and the more they converse, the greater the enhancements.

Double Up For The Battle

Selecting Pair Up when next to an ally puts one unit in the same square as another, into rear guard position. This pair will then move together throughout the entire battle. While the rear guard unit cannot attack, his or her presence increases the front unit's stats, and the two units can switch positions during battle.

Train The Ultimate Warrior

As you explore the World map, you'll come across a variety of foes who are not connected to the main story. Fight these enemies to level up, change classes, and improve your characters' overall skills quickly. Since battles do not affect your primary quest, you can return to them again and again, building up your abilities and creating the ultimate battle-hardened warrior.

Characters

Chrom
Lissa
Emmeryn

The prince of Ylisse and descendant of the Hero-King. While of noble blood, he also leads a militia known as the Shepherds. His strong conviction makes him a fine captain. The most likely to break things.

Chrom's tomboyish little sister, the princess of Ylisse. With nary an ounce of nobility in her personality, she is among the most likeable and approachable of the Shepherds. The girl most likely to snort.

Holy ruler of Ylisse, and older sister of Chrom and Lissa. An extremely gentle and kind person, who believes in peaceful negotiation even when her kingdom is threatened by invasion by Plegia.

Frederick
Lon'qu
Marth

Chrom's lieutenant, an Ylissean knight who is sincere to a fault. He tends to demand tremendous effort for seemingly trivial things, and prefaces such experiences with a grin. The fondest of starting fires.

A swordsman raised in Regna Ferox, where Khan Basilio has vouched for his skill. While cool and curt around most people, the very sight of a woman turns him beet red. The deftest potato peeler.

The mysterious masked knight who identifies himself as the legendary hero, Marth. He also carries the legendary sword, Falchion, which is supposed to be the one-and-only sword Chrom owns. He suddenly appears from nowhere to save Chrom and the others.

Sully
Validar
Lucina

A no-nonsense, capable Shepherd with a mouth that would make brigands blush. Ylissean women admire her strength, and call her The Woman to End All Men.
The last one you want cooking.

A sinister mage in service to a dark power?the fell dragon, Grima, whose coming heralds the end of everything. His scheming sets the world on a course to destruction.

Chrom's future daughter, a kind and just princess who has made it her duty to save the world. She loves her father and would do anything to keep him safe. The least likely to get a joke.

Incredible game. Really great job building these characters and their relationships. It can be a little tedious building support between characters, but the writing is well worth the effort. Holds quite a bit of replay value as well to get to see more supports between different characters. Fire Emblem is an excellent franchise and this game is an excellent addition to that franchise.

The game is fantastic, but it was shipped to me with a broken case. And I mean shattered, thus the 3 star score instead of 5. The game is a 5 star game, but the crushed and ruined case got minus 2 stars.

This is the first FE game I’ve played, and I can’t believe I never picked it up sooner. It’s really fun, but surprisingly challenging.
