Is there alot of continuity in the FE series?

#1trenton97Posted 12/10/2012 4:11:00 PM
As in, do I need to have played the previous entries in the series to understand it? I love Strategy games but I dont want another KH episode. Played all the games to get into DDD, which in hindsight I don't regret, maybe i could just play them all....

Anyway, thanks in advance for any help!

No, each game has its own continuity for the most part.
Only exceptions are FE1>FE3 (which contained FE1 anyways so yeah), FE4>FE5, FE9>FE10, but even those try to fill you in as well as possible.

But this game is completely independent, but there is usually some fanservice for so you may enjoy it more if you played previous games, but nothing major is needed.

if you play the pre-2004 Fire Emblems (read: the REAL Fire Emblems) (except Gaiden, just pretend it doesn't exist) , you'll know what quality is

if you know what quality is, you'll know that Awakening is devoid of it

so yeah, if you want to enjoy Awakening, don't do it

1-3, 4-5, 6-7, and 9-10 are all their own story lines.

You'd actually want to play 7 before 6 and know that 5 takes place halfway through 4 IIRC.

You don't need to play FE7 to enjoy FE6 or vice versa however.

1-5/13 (4/5 are in the distant past of 1/3, The continent that Galle went to make a pact with Lopt was Akanaea, which is where Naga, Salamander, etc. came from to bless the crusaders..) Awakening is in the distant future of FE3 (and its remake)

The other games relations have been explained.
