Fire Emblem Awakening offers a unique blend of in-battle strategy, vast character customization, and 3-D cinematic graphics that appeal to a wide range of gamers. In this fantasy adventure for the Nintendo 3DS, you have the power to turn the tides of battle in an epic war against a dark dragon. Your fire-breathing foe threatens to destroy the entire empire with help from his armies of the undead. But, with your loyal crew of fighters, you could be the one to stop him for good.
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.
Create your own customized soldier and join a massive cast of interesting characters who all have their own stories to tell. Heighten your power on the battlefield by strengthening the bonds between your troops and even enlisting a friend of your own.

The Fire Emblem series is a strategy RPG set in an alternative fantasy classical era with knights, clerics, mages and other fantasy characters. What sets this series apart is the gameplay, which is played on a map with squares where you move your units about and attack vulnerable enemies to get an edge. You can also play in classic mode meaning when your characters die they don't come back in future missions. This is a must buy on the 3DS!

Amazing game with well crafted battle system. Storyline is engaging and customization is really extensive. Another great addition to the Fire Emblem series. Fans of any tactical grid-based RPG will love this and long times will thoroughly enjoy this game. New players might find it a little bit difficult at first as the difficulty can get quite hard at times. But there are settings to tweak that so it's no a big problem. Animations and cutscenes are awesome and fully recommend.

AMAZING. This was my first ever tactical turn based RPG and i loved it! It has different difficulty modes for different experience levels which is great. The story is one of the best I've seen on a 3ds and the gameplay is very easy to get into. it starts you off with the basics and by the time the battles get harder, you are already a pro! I highly recommend doing side quests, as often as possible to upgrade your team and also try to matchmake your team members to get children so you can get even more side quests. There are also loads of free dlc that you should defiantly get. This is one of the best games on the 3ds, a must have.
