I love this game.
It’s every bit as good as I hoped it would be. The only thing I could ask for now is waifu gameplay, which appears to be missing so far, but it’s okay if the game doesn’t have it.
First of all, I’m incredibly biased because I’ve liked a lot of Atlus’s RPGs in the last few years. They’ve sort of taken the place that Squaresoft used to have in that I have a blind faith in the company and their quality of games. Having said that, I’ve come to expect bright color palettes, anime-style cut scenes, and a bravely bold quirkiness to their games that is unrivaled by anyone else in the field.
The second thing I realized while playing this game was how much I missed the Awakening characters. Fire Emblem: Awakening was my favorite game on the 3DS so far, and it was one of the few games that felt sort of crushing when I finished it…like I didn’t want the stories of the characters I had grown to love to ever stop. To see them (Chrom and Tharja, specifically) here in this game again is like…wow nostalgia overload. I really love how Atlus seems to extend the stories of lovable characters (from Persona 3 and 4, and now Fire Emblem games).
And then this happened:
And I died. In a good way. Also there’s Tiki:
And I can’t get over how adorable this menu screen is. My only gripe is that it’s not instant and it takes a second to load up >_<.
Lastly, this happened towards the end of my game time today:
I laughed out loud at this side quest dialogue. They really know the audience they’re catering to.
