Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, or Echoes for short, is the latest game entry in the Fire Emblem series that released on May 19th, 2017. It actually goes back to the roots by essentially recreating Fire Emblem Gaiden, the second game of the franchise that was only released in Japan in 1992. What made that one special was how it did things differently from the others like having dungeons. Now everyone can experience the great story and gameplay worldwide on the Nintendo 3DS.
I highly recommend Echoes, though if you are completely new to Fire Emblem, you may want to start with Awakening and Fates first to get a better idea of where the franchise is mostly headed. Echoes has a harder difficulty reminiscent of old Fire Emblem games, so keep that in mind. Without further ado, let’s get started.
