How will new Fire Emblem games top this game?

Better story/character/balance aside, what other features can be introduced to succeed FE:A and still make them fresh?

I can think of legacy characters actually having their own unique models, but this would be too small of a change to be "fresh"

I fear that this game introduced too much and good enough for new ones to feel like its rip-offs with different story/characters and that's it (like how Sacred Stones felt to Blazing Sword)

Next one needs to be long enough that the story doesn't feel rushed. And on a personal preference, take out the Avatar unit, or at least do something to not make them so boring.

How was the avatar unit in any way boring?

By taking the same formula and improving on it?

Personally I don't mind if they don't include the older FE characters in a new game. I don't think I would have enjoyed season 1 DLC more if they came up with new characters because I didn't know who 75% of the people were.

His/her personality just sucked really, I would prefer no avatar as well

Make the map design better, bring back playable soldiers/brigands and light magic would be my big things

Keep the avatar, make the story as long as PoR and RD combined, better critical animations, more animated cutscenes, character specific skills, keep the map travel, keep support concepts, new setting or continuation of Magvel??

There are so many things that could make this game better.

- Make Lunatic mode be something other than the Avatar killing everything.
- If they bring back the Avatar idea make him much less broken.
- Don't make Nosferatu buyable.
- Make the highest difficulty something other than a luckfest.
- Add a difficulty between Hard and Lunatic.
- Destroy Fanservice.
- Make the storyline less rushed.
- Make the storyline less boring.
- Remove Normal mode.
And so on.

Did you really just say "Remove Normal mode"? That's insane.

Chrom is just as boring though, is the problem.

On a less serious, but still would be interested in seeing note......... a map where every square is a ballistae.
