Best Nintendo 3DS Games – #18 Fire Emblem Echoes – Shadows of Valentia

Developer: Intelligent Systems

Release Date: April 20th, 2017

Synopsis: Alm and Celica were childhood best friends, but fate separates them when they are still young and sets them on vastly different paths: Alm becomes the leader of a band of revolutionaries struggling to take back their homeland, while Celica seeks out a goddess and a peaceful solution to the conflict. The two must traverse all of Valentia with their friends, fighting their way through an evil nation and a dark society of magic-users to, hopefully, save both countries and themselves.

Why It’s One Of The Best Nintendo Games: Intelligent Systems knew what they were doing when they decided to create a remake of Fire Emblem Gaiden for worldwide release. By adding just enough new features and polish to make the game an enjoyable new experience, while skipping out on overdoing it with features from recent titles, Fire Emblem Echoes shines as a polished, if incredibly challenging, Fire Emblem entry in its own right. Nintendo has promised paid DLC throughout 2017 to offer continual incentive to return to Valentia and re-experience the challenging, strategic combat Fire Emblem fans have come to adore.
