Upgrade classes or change them entirely. All up to you.
The beauty of Fire Emblem isn’t just the addictive gameplay or wild card of character death or even the awesome story but that deep down, it is still a very robust turn-based strategy RPG, as a new trailer for Fire Emblem: Awakening from Red Entertainment and Intelligent Systems showcases.
Character level-ups that increase their stats are well known, but the interesting part is the changing of classes with Seals. Master Seals upgrade a character’s class, such a Knight which can become a General or Great Knight.
Secondary Seals allow characters to change their classes entirely, and then subsequently upgrade to higher classes.
Fire Emblem: Awakening will be released for Nintendo 3DS on February 4th in North America and later in April for Europe. The game will follow a brand new storyline with a new graphical style but will feature classic series characters like Marth (or some one claiming to be him).
