Fire Emblem Sacred Stones

I remember that moment 10 years ago when I got my hands on the first Fire Emblem game to make it stateside. Yes, I’m talking about Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones, which released way back when on the Game Boy Advance. I had no idea what to expect, and was quickly drawn into the world of the game, the complex tactics and ruthless foes. To say it made an impact on me would be an understatement. Which is why I’m so happy to see today that the ESRB rated the game for the Wii U Virtual Console!

Now, while this is hardly the first time it’s been brought to another system, since the Ambassador Program provided the game for 3DS owners, it is the first time anybody else in North America can appreciate the game on a new console. Unsurprisingly, the ESRB rated it E for everyone, due to mild fantasy violence. I will say, whether you are a old or new Fire Emblem fan, you owe it to yourself to pick this one up on the Virtual Console once it releases. It’s still one of my favorite games in the series, besides the fantastic Fire Emblem: Awakening.

    Blazing Sword was the first to make it stateside.
    Sacred Stones was second.
