Fire Emblem Fates
The second Fire Emblem title for Nintendo 3DS which consists of two versions, Birthright and Conquest. The Avatar is the main character and s/he becomes involved in a war between the land of their birth (Hoshido) and the nation they were raised in (Nohr). There is also a third story, Revelation.
Corrin’s army rides again in the Pokémon Red of Fire Emblem Fates. Meet the noble warriors of Hoshido, then teach them to love and to kill.
