I purchased one (or maybe even two) of the previous GBA games, and I really don't remember the story at all (I don't think I got very into them honestly). However, this game looks very interesting to me, so I'm thinking about getting it. I'm concerned I won't know any of the story outside of the vague bits I remember from the GBA games, and what I remember from SSBB. I thought I read that this takes place a long time after any of the previous games though.

So can I jump into this game knowing everything I need to know, or am I going to have to get my old GBA game(s) out and replay them?

This series is kind of like the Final Fantasy series in the sense that they have different characters and different worlds in different games. Well, to an extent I guess. The only stand alones are 8 and this one, so this is not entirely true.

Cool thanks. I'll pick up this game tomorrow then. It's just as well, I went and found my GBA games after typing this and I only have the regular "Fire Emblem", and it looks like something got spilled on it so I don't know if it'll even play. Which sucks cause I typically take good care of my old games (my Pokemon Yellow and Gold versions which were right next to the Fire Emblem game were in mint condition). So I probably would have been screwed if I needed to play them, unless they have them released for the E-Shop.

Nah you're good. Some of the Fire emblems are linked like the gamecube one the Wii one, but this one is a totally new plot so you are good.

It's fair to mention you'll miss some in jokes with the DLC and a couple of characters, but it shouldn't hamper your overall enjoyment.

There are some references to Shadow Dragon and it's Japan-only sequel, but it doesn't matter cause most of it is explained in-game.
