Fire Emblem series

Group Description

Fire Emblem (ファイアーエムブレム) is a series of tactical role-playing games by Intelligent Systems. Its installments take place on different continents of a fantasy world, which largely constitute their own separate universes and are otherwise unrelated to each other. The games are plot-driven and focus on individual characters and their relationships.

Like other representatives of the genre, these games combine large-scale tactical battles with role-playing elements such as equipment customization and leveling up. The series' trademark gameplay elements involve a rock-paper-scissors system for weapons, breakable equipment, and permanent death (characters fallen in battle usually cannot be revived by any means).
