Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Great game didn’t beat it yet but great for ages 14 and up

This game is really heart-wrenching because of the characters who have fallen in in the war/battle and has been killed in battle/the war and the characters who fall in battle are:Flora, Xander, Elise, Effie, Arthur, Charlotte and many more Nohrians were killed by Hoshido royals and members

Great game!

I’ve been a long term fan of the Fire Emblem series. This is one of the best Fire Emblem games. There is some slight sexual content. I’m normally very strict with what my kids play and normally check it very thoroughly for any inappropriate content. Many people exaggerate the sexual content and violence. This is a game that should have been rated E-10 but the ESRB was harsh. It provides good skills in strategy and planning
