Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia is a remake of the 1992 Fire Emblem Gaiden, the second game in the famous jRPG series and was never before translated into English.

The game focuses on two childhood friends who, as adults, are fighting for the opposing sides. Their stories intertwine, allowing us to see what happens on both sides of the conflict.

There are many of them available for recruitment, but only a handful can be used on the battlefield. We can level up our characters, explore the world, visit towns, and complete side quests between the battles. Unlike its precursor, Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia features 3D visuals and fully voiced dialogues.
