They’re probably going to kill me for this.
Welcome, friends and all, to a first kind of post that I will be making for this blog. This time, I tackle some unpopular opinions amongst games and characters so far to see them in a less biased manner, and usually going against the public opinion. Sometimes, when the public says something rather notorious, people are inclined to say that it’s the truth, and go along with it. I, however, become inspired to take a small research and see how truthful it is. And if my opinion ends up against the public opinion of the internet… well, thus this section is born.
So let’s dig in into our first foray, featuring the last game of Fire Emblem not released to the English: Fire Emblem: Shin Monshou no Nazo. The 12th game and the remake of the third game.
To start this section, let us start with a word from someone really good amongst the net, RavenKingSage (I’ll never be as witty as you.)
“New Mystery of the Emblem is one of the series’ most underrated games, if only by the virtue of never being getting localized. It builds on everything that made the original Mystery of the Emblem work and added with so much more. Complete with a richer plot, additional character development, features that later helped save the franchise with Awakening, and even some completely new faces, one of which is your own customizable avatar. Sounds great, doesn’t it? There’s just one little detail, though…”
“That avatar is one of the worst characters in Fire Emblem history.”
Thank you, Raven. Ladies and gentlemen, our focus of the day, the Avatar of FE12, Kris… or Chris, if you prefer. (I do recommend you to watch Raven’s video where this quote originated from. Has a good, if opinionated, insight.)
