Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones (GBA / Game Boy Advance)

Game Profile

Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones takes place in the continent of Magvel.

Demons once populated the continent, but mankind gained piece by sealing the evil forces with five magic stones. Time passed, and the stones became the heirlooms of royal families whose kingdoms divide the present-day continent.

The story begins as the most powerful of these kingdoms, the Grado Empire, begins to invade the remainder of Magvel. The Lunes Kingdom, a neighboring kingdom to the Grado Empire, incurs a sudden attack against which it cannot defend, and begins losing its territory.

The Grado Empire army reaches the Lunes Kingdom royal city and the Lunes Kingdom falls. Battles feature submaps which you'll be able to enter and leave at will and there is a new class change system that allows players to select from two upper level classes when the time comes to upgrade.

For such a long-running series, it's hard to believe Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones was only the second game to leave Japan after GBA predecessor Fire Emblem. Since then the series has had a far bigger presence in the West, a fact underlined by Sacred...

You guys are lucky for getting this game via the Ambassador program. This is definitely my 3rd favorite GBA game (behind Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga and Final Fantasy VI Advance) and my favorite Fire Emblem game. You guys enjoy.

My bro likes it better than shadow dragon because the difficulty is a lot more forgiving.

Although I played many traditional RPG's in my day (SNES era) they never really clicked with me. Chrono Trigger and Secret of Man were my first foray, and I never finished them.
I got this game on 3DS, and I am officially converted! I really love this game! Maybe my taste has changed or something, but Fire Emblem SS totally captivated me. What an awesome late discovery!
Thanks Nintendo!
