Fire Emblem is a long running strategy role-playing franchise developed by Intelligent Systems and published by Nintendo. The first game released in 1990 on the Nintendo Entertainment System. The games revolve around tactical movement of sword-wielding characters across grid-based environments. The series was Japan exclusive until 2003 when the series came to the West with the release of Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade. Due to poor sales of the series, Fire Emblem Awakening was conceived as the final installment of the franchise. As a result of the record-breaking sales of the game and widespread critical acclaim, the series was allowed to continue.[1] As of December 2020, the Fire Emblem franchise has sold over 16.68 million copies worldwide.
