'Fire Emblem Fates’ follows its own path

Intro, Birthright, and TL;DR by Jake Doolin @Clingtoascheme Conquest by Graham Taylor If you were to tell me four years ago that the Fire Emblem series would be making a comeback I wouldn’t have believed you. The series was on a downslope in 2012 after poor sales from its last few games and a general lack of interest in another game. A final game, Fire Emblem: Awakening was planned for the 3DS for the following year and was set to finish the series proper. Thankfully though, Awakening managed to sell well enough to bring us to now and the newest game in the series, Fire Emblem: Fates. And in a way one could look at Fates as the series victory lap, where at one point it seemed to be all but doomed it now boasts its biggest sales yet. But even beyond sales Fates feels like the culmination of decades of work and care, taking all the best elements of the series thus far and creating a game that works as another entry as well as a love letter to fans.
