Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows Of Valentia

Info
Developer: Intelligent Systems
Series: Fire Emblem
Platform: Nintendo 3DS
Release: JP: April 20, 2017, NA/EU: May 19, 2017, AU: May 20, 2017
Genre: Tactical role-playing

Spoiler: Gameplay
Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia is a tactical role-playing game in which players command two armies on opposite sides of a war on the continent of Valentia. There are two difficulty settings (Normal and Hard), two modes that dictate the fate of characters that fall in battle. In Classic Mode, a fallen unit is subject to permanent death, a recurring mode in the Fire Emblem series that removes fallen characters from the rest of the game. Casual Mode enables units to be revived at the end of a battle. The player navigates Valentia using a world map, going to different story-based and optional locations. Environments are split between battle maps similar to earlier Fire Emblem titles, towns which can be explored to find friendly non-playable characters (NPCs) which run shops, and dungeons the player can explore. Encountering enemies on the world map or in dungeons with trigger a battle.

As with other Fire Emblem games, Fire Emblem Echoes uses a turn-based system where each unit on both sides is given their chance to move and act. Battles take place on a grid-based battlefield, with turns being given for players and enemies. During an attack, the view transitions from a top-down perspective to a third-person view. Unlike many other Fire Emblem titles, the Weapons Triangle — a rock–paper–scissors system where certain weapons have advantages over others — and limited weapon durability are removed. Units instead have standard weapons that last the whole campaign, and can be given special weapons which replace their standard weapon and grant passive advantages. Each unit can only carry one weapon, which grows in power as its wielder gains experience points and levels up through battle. Each unit is assigned a unique character class, with the class dictating their weapon and consequently their actions; archers can attack at a distance, melee fighters are limited to close-range attacks, while mages must sacrifice a portion of of their health to perform an action. Once a unit has reached a certain level, their class can be evolved into more powerful versions. Villager NPCs can also be recruited in towns; while initially weak, they can be strengthened and assigned any available character class.

Each time a unit is used in a battle, their Fatigue meter is filled and their maximum health is decreased. The meter is depleted by either giving that unit gifts or purifying them at special statues. During battles, adjacent allied units can engage in Support conversations. In dungeon environments, players can roam freely through a 3D environment with a party of ten units, able to avoid encounters if they wish and smash objects or open crates to obtain money and items. Upon engaging an enemy, the perspective switches to the standard top-down battle screen. An added function is Mila's Turnwheel, a mechanic whereby players can undo three turns to redo moves if something has gone wrong such as a unit falling in battle. In addition, Fire Emblem Echoes features Amiibo support, with compatible figurines being main protagonists Alm and Celica, in addition to characters from earlier Fire Emblem games: using an Amiibo summons a phantom unit for a single turn at the cost of a character's health. Amiibos not related to the Fire Emblem series summon allied monsters.

RE: Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows Of Valentia

I have started playing the game and I must say I like it. I have some things I liked better in the last one, like you being your own character, but the two main characters are really nice so it's okay.
I think I like the story a bit better here, not sure why but I do.
Anyway I will keep playing and see what will happen :)

RE: Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows Of Valentia

I have played the game some more, and over all I like it. The dispute between the main character was ridicules tho, and it felt kind of forced, sadly. But besides that I like the story. Both characters has really nice quests, and nice characters with them, and I like that because then I don't feel like one of them are boring and useless to play as.

Right now I am actually stuck on a very difficult fight, and I hope I can manage to get by it. If I don't, well then I need to play some other fights before I guess.
Anyway, I am looking forward to see where the story is heading.
