There are some games out there that come out of the blocks hot and race around the track with no signs of stopping and equally, there are some games that never exit the starting blocks. However, there are some rare cases where games need to walk before they can run and in the case of Fire Emblem, this is the case. This series has always had a dedicated cult following but for the longest time, this game struggled to conquer the Asian market. However, ever since Fire Emblem Awakening this series has gone on to achieve global acclaim and for this reason, we thought that it was the perfect time to launch FE Fanatics.
Our Team has played collectively played 10,000+ hours of Fire Emblem, has played every single game and spin-off related to the series, has played through these titles multiple times to test new builds, party compositions and achieve all the possible endings, and most importantly, our team loves the series more than any other JRPG on the market!
Our goal is a relatively straightforward one. We aim to be a one-stop shop for all things Fire Emblem. We aim to be the ultimate online database where this game franchise is concerned and offer a means of success in each and every title within the series for gamers of all skill levels.

Or if you are a brand new gamer to the series, we offer content that is accessible for all.
At FE Fanatics, we are determined to offer the most eye-catching, informative, and helpful content for FE fans. As this long-running series in of itself hasn’t always been the most accessible global IP, we are the santuary for JRPG fans who wish to bridge the gap and become a FE superfan!

Like many gamers in America, Xavier’s introduction to the Fire Emblem series came by Martha and Roy’s inclusion in Super Smash Bros. Melee. As a Marth main, he felt compelled to try out the source material. He did so by playing Fire Emblem: Blazing Blade. Fire Emblem quickly became his favorite tactical role-playing game franchise of all time. When he isn’t writing about or playing Fire Emblem, you can find him playing The Lord of the Rings: The Third Age (The GBA version) and Onimusha Tactics.

Kat started playing Fire Emblem on a whim when she saw Path of Radiance in a Blockbuster. Even her older brothers (who were, and still are, massive gamers) weren’t familiar with the Fire Emblem series, but she decided to try it after hearing good things about Path of Radiance in a magazine. She instantly took a liking to the series’ difficulty, tactics-based gameplay, and colorful characters. Kat enjoys writing in-depth articles about gaming in general, but thinking up and jotting down unique Fire Emblem strategies is what she does best. Outside of gaming, Kat likes to cycle, do Muay Thai, and club hop with her friends. She runs an international anime figure company with her business partner, which takes her all across Canada and the United States. Kat loves to travel and play the piano.

Fire Emblem Hot Take: Reworking the Relationship System from Genealogy of the Holy War and adding it back into the series as the Support System for Awakening was the best thing that happened to the series.
The first time Ethan got to know Fire Emblem was thanks to a ROM on a Super Nintendo emulator that his dad had on an old desktop PC. The fact that it was in Japanese and the characters looked like a sort of “Dragon Ball Z with swords and horses” was what got him almost immediately because it combined the two favorite things a 10-year-old boy had: Knights and epic fights. His first game was Fire Emblem Genealogy of a Holy war, and he fell in love with the saga when he finally found a ROM in Spanish. Since then, he has played every Fire Emblem game he could get his hands on. Besides enjoying Fire Emblem, he also enjoys Rouge Like games, such as Hades or Curse of the Dead Gods.

Fire Emblem Hot Take: Fire Emblem should have an official timeline. It would make the stories have more dramatic effects and make the world feel more connected.
