A very nice remake
Classic fire emblem title with an updated gameplay, characters and mechanics. Even if you played Gaiden, this title will still feel different.

A truly wonderful experience
Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia is a truly wonderful game. Although it is quite different from the other FE games for 3DS (Awakening and the three versions of Fates) it's not something that would make you want to stop. The game is almost completely voice acted, by which I mean almost every single piece of speech text is voiced, that includes NPCs. Oh, and the dub is absolutely amazing.

Since this is a remake of the original Fire Emblem Gaiden for the NES, the characters have all been beautifully redesigned. And the music from the original game has also been remade, obviously.

All in all, this game is truly worthy of your attention, so make sure to not pass it up!

A remake apt for the resurgence of Fire Emblem
Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia (hereafter shortened to SoV) is, first and foremost, a remake of the second Japan-exclusive game in the long-running Fire Emblem (hereafter shortened to FE) series, titled Fire Emblem Gaiden (hereafter shortened to Gaiden) for the NES. Similar to most second iterations of the current mainline Nintendo titles of its time (Super Mario Bros. 2, Zelda II: The Adventure of Link), Gaiden takes liberties in its game mechanics that make it quite different from its predecessor. SoV adapts these very same differences and adjusts it to fit the current standards of FE entries, thus making SoV quite different from other 3DS FE titles such as Awakening or the three branches of Fates. The game is set in the continent of Valentia, the area west of Archanea in the original Fire Emblem storyline. (Valentia will also be eventually renamed into "Valm" a couple thousand years later, which previous 3DS FE players may recognize as the continent located west of Ylisse, the future name of Archanea, in Awakening.) This setting gives players—especially those familiar with the world of Awakening, the first 3DS FE entry—a small sense of familiarity and attachment.

As a current-gen FE player myself (I've only played as far back as the GBA titles, nothing further), I can say with confidence that SoV is perhaps the most immersive FE experience for the 3DS to date, and one of the best entries in the franchise by far. The near-fully voice-acted dialogues, the absolutely gorgeous music, and the stellar character writing all meld together to make a FE experience that quite simply isn't like any other. Alongside this, the artwork (with characters designed by Hidari as opposed to Kozaki Yusuke, who handled character designs for both Awakening and Fates) truly captures the grounded yet hopeful spirit of the game's story, utilizing earthly color tones and relatively mute designs reflective of the game's setting. The gameplay, while strikingly different to previous 3DS FE entries in some areas while wholly similar in others, gives enough difference to surprise both veterans and newcomers alike. The shift from the standard FE gameplay current 3DS owners may be used to at this point to the new variation that SoV brings is not as drastic as it seems to be, and players old and new will adapt to SoV's methods and strategies fairly quickly. The game's difficulty is also fair, with Normal giving enough of a challenge to its players without imparting much undeserved headache, and with Hard providing a challenge worthy of all players brave enough to attempt it. SoV also comes with a simple achievement system (termed as "Medals" in-game) that give players incentive to explore further beyond the game's main story—even going so far as giving merit for second and third playthroughs with achievements such as low turn count (LTC) finishes.

Overall, the game does an excellent job in giving players a window into the gameplay styles of Fire Emblem years ago, as well as giving these same players a new perspective on what Fire Emblem truly encompasses as a franchise. SoV fully redefines what being a Fire Emblem game in this day and age truly means, and at the same time still maintains this spirit of grandeur and adventure that makes it a true Fire Emblem experience to its core.
