Fire Emblem Fates comes out next week in North America, where it will be available in two versions: Birthright and Conquest. But unlike the two versions of a mainline Pokémon games, those are actually two separate games with their own story, characters, and more (obviously, the two are linked).
But it’s not just the story and characters that change: there’s also noticeable differences when it comes to gameplay, with Conquest being considerable harder and unforgiving. Wondering which version you should pick up? Then this week’s episode of Nintendo Minute is for you! In this one, Kit and Krysta discusses the differences between the two versions, so you can find out which one is for you.
Hi, let us commence week two of Fire Emblem FEbruary! We’ve been playing the game and by that we mean we are totally obsessed and many hours have already been poured into these games. This week we reveal which version we’ve been playing and discuss the differences between Conquest and Birthright. The game comes out in a week and we can’t wait to see which path you guys will choose. As always, thanks so much for watching and we hope you have a great weekend.
