Why are the DS Fire Emblems called FE11 and FE12?

Shouldn't Awakening be FE11 instead of 13? This is the first series I've ever seen where remakes are considered part of the main series.

No, that definitely would not be true, because by that logic it would be FE10, as FE3 was ALSO a remake.

Correction, FE3 was HALF of a remake.
Pretty sure that when most people refer to FE3, they mainly mean Book 2.

It introduced us to reclassing and wi-fi battle, I guess that's unique enough to be considered as new entry for Shadow Dragon.

Heroes of Light and Shadow adds MU to the story and he has his own support conversation with the rest of the cast, so I think it deserves to be FE12 for making this Hero of Shadow as new main character.
Anticipating: Ace Attorney 5.
Playing: DeSu OC, FE Waifu Awakening, FE PoR & RD.

FE has no official numbering, so we just treat each entry in the series as it's own game. If they come right out and boldfacedly call the next one "Fire Emblem 12" then we will have to change it up I guess, but I don't see it happening.
