Fire Emblem Games Ranked From Worst to Best

Multiple Blue Rings

The Fire Emblem games are a storied part of Nintendo’s history. Debuting only in Japan in 1990, it gave the first Nintendo consoles an enjoyable fantasy RPG-strategy experience. With 2003’s Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade, the series made its debut in North America (Europe and Australia got a 2004 release). Since then, the franchise has been a mainstay on every Nintendo system.

To honor that heritage, we’re going to go over all the Fire Emblem games ranked from worst to best. We’ll use a combination of fan and critical reception, as well as personal opinion, to form the list. You may agree, you might disagree; either way, be sure to keep the conversation going in the comments.

FIRE EMBLEM: SHADOW DRAGON & THE BLADE OF LIGHT MAY BE THE WORST OF ALL FIRE EMBLEM GAMES, BUT IT ALSO STARS MARTH, SO IT HAS THAT GOING FOR IT

Enjoyment of Fire Emblem: Warriors is totally dependent on if you’re a fan of Dynasty Warriors gameplay. It’s not the traditional turn-based strategy game you expect.

FIRE EMBLEM: WARRIORS

This is the highest-grossing mobile game from Nintendo for a reason. Heroes balance the trappings and dangers of a gacha game by still offering something for the non-whale players out there. You don’t have to spend lots of money to have a good time.

FIRE EMBLEM HEROES

A remake of 1992’s Japan-only Fire Emblem Gaiden, Shadows of Valentia is the second old-school Fire Emblem remake. However, despite being updated for modern audiences, some of the original’s “quirks” are still present.

FIRE EMBLEM ECHOES: SHADOWS OF VALENTIA

Fire Emblem and the Nintendo DS are a match made in heaven, allowing for a lot of quality of life and accessibility features with the dual screens. Updated graphics and superior hardware help flesh out the issues of the original Famicon release.
