Individual entries Edit

Fire Emblem (Rekka no Ken) Edit

Fire Emblem: Awakening Edit

Fire Emblem Awakening marked a major shift in the series in both the West and in Japan. It sold well above expectations and every entry in the series, being the first one to exceed 1 million. The critical success led to an extraordinary debut in the West with 180 thousands units sold in its launch month with a third coming from the eShop[5]. It was also the first game in the series to include DLC. The success of this DLC influenced Nintendo plans for future titles. As of 2017, the game sold 2.24 million

Fire Emblem Fates Edit

Fire Emblem Fates was an even larger success with the game selling 300 thousand in opening weekend in the United States. The game debuted at 303 thousand when combining the special edition in Japan as according to Media Create in its launch week. As the game was divided into two versions plus a limited special edition that included the other versions, the sales were split. Birthright was the better performer all-around but, Conquest was close behind. The game also had strong DLC sales.

At 2.85 million, the title is far and away the best selling Fire Emblem title. It is also the best-selling strategy role playing game, beating out Final Fantasy Tactics's 2.4 million.

Fire Emblem Heroes Edit

The game is Nintendo's biggest foray into the mobile market excluding their involvement in Pokemon Go. According to Sensory Tower, the game has grossed $500 million by February 2019. This is more than the other mobile games they published combined[6].
