series: akaneia

Now THAT‘S what I‘m talkin‘ about!

I’m not even joking, I seriously think that this is the sort of design they should have gone for in Marth’s remakes.

I mean, okay, it’s silly but Shadow Dragon and New Mystery are such dull-looking games that I think a bit of early 90′s goofiness would have at least made them more visually interesting.

Besides, given the ancient Greek/Roman theme that the original Fire Emblem had going on in terms of its world and its design (as we can see in the names of places and legendary weapons) as opposed to the French mythology in the Elibe games, the Nordic influences in the Jugdral saga, or the Arthurian undertones in Path of Radiance, I actually think that going with this sort of look with the old school tunic and circlet and what have you might’ve made Akaneia stand out just a bit more.

The things I do for you nerds….

I more or less blame @prince-mar-mar for inspiring me to do this. Because of him playing Shadow Dragon, I decided you know what I’ll play Fire Emblem: Ankoku Ryū to Hikari no Tsurugi. Or more commonly translated Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon & The Blade of Light (aka FE1)

99% chance that this is an outdated translation but I’m too lazy to properly find & set up newer ones (especially since I literally did all the patching on my phone) but it’s English and that works for me.
