Not only will it be years before another console FE that isn't a spinoff game, but it'll be years before we get a game that isn't set in Awakening's world.
Awakening's World is the exact same world as every other FE. >_> Or do you mean one that won't involve Chrom/Lucina and co.? --- We are the champions, but me most of all! Official Eikichi Mishina of all MegaTen boards.
It's more trustworthy for numbers which are actually publically available (which console sales are) but yes, stay away from VGChartz in general.
To the TC, all I can say is, "good". IMO the series belongs on a portable (it doesn't really benefit from home consoles' superior visuals at all), and I think it's clear the general public agrees based on the sales figures... IIRC the three best-selling games in the series (FE7, FE8, FE13) are on portables despite only 6 of 13 overall being there, but I'm too lazy to confirm this. --- The RPG Duelling League: www.rpgdl.com An unparalleled source for RPG information and discussion
Roy, Eliwood, Lyn and Hector appear as Einherjar... So they probably are in the same world.
That, or the Dragon's Gate and the Outrealm Gate are interconnected, which is basically the same as sharing a world. --- We are the champions, but me most of all! Official Eikichi Mishina of all MegaTen boards.
mechanically, there's not really much the franchise has added since 1990 that the NES' CPU couldn't handle, and the few things NES might struggle with (Pair Up), SNES sure as hell could handle it, FE really gains nothing from consoles over handhelds, especially not when handheld games have had just as much content as console games since the 1990s (think Link's Awakening and Pokémon)
really, Nintendo as a whole would be better off going handheld only and let everyone else kill themselves over increasing game budgets, now if only they'd make good games again..... --- I may not agree with what you have to say, but I will fight to the death for my right to fight you to the death. -Stephen Colbert
