Fire Emblem Heroes is about to get a little more colorful. The Spring Festival tosses fan favorite heroes into bunny costumes and adds a new, lighthearted side story to battle through. But it’s mostly about those absurd outfits.
I never played a Fire Emblem game until Fire Emblem Heroes. The game dazzled me with a colorful (if horny) cast and the promise of distant realms. I wanted to see more so I bought a 3DS and played Awakening. What I found was magical and inspiring.

In Fire Emblem: Fates, you can make it so that if you lose one of your characters in battle, they’re gone for good. You can also make it so that’s not the case, and they return in the next chapter.
I’ve been playing Fire Emblem ever since I first got my hands on Fire Emblem: The Sword of Flame, (or just “Fire Emblem” for us Westerners) on the Game Boy Advance in 2003. I am a massive fan of the series, and often contemplate throwing down $80 on Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon just so I can say I’ve played it. Lately…

The confusion around the self-censored Fire Emblem petting/touching mini-game is finally ending.
