I was a huge fan of Hyrule Warriors; the unusual match-up of the Warriors formula with the Zelda aesthetic and characters worked tremendously well, especially in terms of the sheer amount of content the game provided and how the Zelda mechanics altered the tried and tested Warriors franchise in interesting ways. When Nintendo announced yet another Warriors crossover, but this time with Fire Emblem, a franchise that I personally prefer over the Zelda franchise. The more information that came out about Fire Emblem Warriors, the better it looked, and the hype levels were very high.

What’s this? Reuben reviewing a game that isn’t a JRPG? Surely there is some sort of mistake? No, you aren’t imagining things, I’m reviewing an action-adventure game. But it isn’t the first time. I reviewed the original game here, and now I’m back to give my thoughts on the new 3DS game. I do have to say right now that, unlike my usual reviews of a new game in a series, I will have to compare Legends to its original because many of its benefits and detriments are only so due to the fact it is a port. Let’s go then.
