Question Time: Fire Emblem Fates talk coming up


There’s probably no game released yet this year that’s made as many ripples in the water as Fire Emblem Fates has. It’s the center of a lot of attention for both longtime fans of the series and newcomers alike.

On this episode we will be discussing a whole slew of topics regarding this title and its various incarnations, so please send us a question in the comments section below!

  1. When I played through Awakening, I pretty much wrecked shop with just 2 characters, Gaius and Lon’qu. Those two would clear maps on their own without taking a scratch!

    Havent been able to play Fates yet, because EU (at least we got Bravely Second to make up for it, amazing game btw), but I just wanted to know if you had any characters that you used as pretty much a one person war machine.

  2. I’ve been hoping for an episode on the Fire Emblem series, so I’m really looking forward to this one!

    How do you feel about Fates being released in three versions: Birthright, Conquest, and Revelations? How did it impact the gameplay, story, and your overall experience with Fates?

    If you have the time for another question:
    I’m trying to complete as much of the support log as I can in my current Revelations playthrough and so far Odin’s support with his daughter Ophelia is my favorite. Whether you liked learning more about characters, had fun with some of the silly situations or just enjoyed playing matchmaker, what are your favorite support conversations in Fates?

  3. Hello again, it’s Yukiko’s mother again with some hot questions

    So let’s talk about the narrative. All 3 routes try to do different things with varying success, and I was wondering what your thoughts on it? Personally, despite being the most flawed I like Conquest the most because it tried to do something different. It has some serious narrative failings, and it would be so much better if Garon was a grey character instead of just being overtly “evil”, but I can’t help but love some of the more individual moments in the story, and chapters 22-27 are quite good.

    What do you think?

  4. What were the characters you ended up liking more than you expected?

    Now that Nintendo considers Fire Emblem one of their top IPs, where do you think the series will go next?

    What I hope is that their next game will be a remake of one that was never released overseas (FE4 especially comes to mind). However, I have a strong feeling that the next console Fire Emblem would be a HD remaster of the Tellius saga.

  5. My question comes in two parts.

    1) My first Fire Emblem was the first American one released on GBA. One thing I loved was getting the right Supports to pair up characters by the end of the game and getting their epilogue after the conflict. However, not only were you limited to 5 simple support conversations, only certain characters could interact with other characters. Though Awakening and Fates have done away with these limitations, I am almost overwhelmed with the amount of choice. I appreciate being given more choice, but some of these supports feel underwhelming. My question is: Did any supports feel out of place or forced in Fates, just to fill the quota of allowing everyone to talk with everyone else? What should Intelligent Systems do in future games to keep supports from feeling like unnecessary padding?

    2) Along with supports, Fates brought back another much loved feature of a second generation. I enjoy seeing a result come from my first generation supports, but couldn’t help but roll my eyes at the plot-excuse that allowed the new generation to grow up in a blink of an eye. I will give Fates props of having the children leveled better when they join your army as opposed to Awakening, but it’s still not enough to get me to replace the members I’ve already spent so much time on. With the next Fire Emblem, what would you like seen done with the Generation system to break the mold and evolve?
