Now Nintendo's probably gonna commission DLC for the most popular characters, but only based on Japanese input..
Main reason I hate the large gap in releases.
 
tch.. no one cares about Oboro being 3rd even if she's not a princess... that's why I didn't bother making this thread yesterday & just talk in the community thread :V :V

There are a few designs that are the same in Awakening just with another hair color, but most looks great.

All things considered, Kozaki is doing well with managing such a large cast and making them feel mostly distinct from one another. I think he does work best with a smaller yet more eclectic cast (No More Heroes is still his high-water mark in that regard), but this is working out pretty well for him all the same.

Thanks guys.
Guess I am playing Birthright first.
I mean... my friend might play Birthright first.

Does the third route have any exclusive characters by the way? Sorry for the dumb questions, I am trying to avoid spoilers however flimsy the story will probably be.

Basically each route has a large amount of unique characters with both sharing the same handful of neutral characters who always join Kamui. The 3rd path revelations I believe has almost everyone join in the end.

Man, the quality of character design in Fire Emblem has really tanked.I can't tell about half the cast apart any more. All the female characters have almost exactly the same facial shape, eyebrows, and eyes, and vary only in terms of hair-style, hair colour, and eye colour.

Thanos acquires the fully powered Infinity Gauntlet in The Avengers: Infinity War, but loses when all the superheroes team up together to stop him.
Oboro is a girl?

Best girl. What a great design. Kagerou is too low. Marx where he should be. Suzukaze not as much of a travesty as Kagerou... but not where he should be.

Thanks!

Okay, some more dumb questions: You can buy the third route online only after already purchasing either Birthright or Conquest?
Or could one, in theory, download the game with the third route only, once that is released?
I guess the third route starts at whatever end both original routes lead too, so that is probably not possible.
However, is the third route a mix of both difficulty wise? Can Birthright players do it, but is it still a challenge for Conquest players?

...

Can someone link me the OT?

Otherwise back on topic.
Personally I really enjoy the art style, but this poll is hardly based on appearance alone. It has the butler/maid on 4th place, so I'll assume that the higher ranked chars are the neutral or main story characters who are more popular simply based on the fact that most players will have met them in their game. That's why I am so surprised Tharja was so popular in Awakening, an optional character from later in the game, that new players could easily miss to recruit.

Are any of the higher ranked characters such optional characters? That would give us a better idea on who the FE crowd really favors.
 
Thanks!

Yes, No, No, 3rd route is harder than Birthright, easier than Conquest
 
I hadn't really seen many of the characters and now that I'm checking them out to see which are my favorite ones design wise, and damn I love Kinu's design even if I'm not into.... well ya know.



I need this damn game already.
 
Thanks a bunch. Didn't want to derail the thread, but seeing all these characters made me pretty excited for the game.

there's import thread, but it's pretty much dead already haha... you can just pop in to community thread to ask questions, not limited to the latest entry

edit: tbh i can't remember if you can directly purchase 3rd route on eshop & not by accessing it via ingame. but 3rd route still need the base game, either birthright or conquest to be playable (or digital copy/special edition cart)

So what makes the young Yamato Nadeshiko from the #1 female poll so popular exactly?

She's the female Avatar here. Main characters usually have an advantage in polls like this. Add to that her default design being generally very well received. I guess the whole "isolated princess who spent brief but precious time with close friends/possible love interests" backstory also worked well with the Japanese fans. The top 4 male characters are all popular pairings for her too if you look at fanart.

So are these mostly Conquest or Birthright characters?

The poll has all characters from both, excluding extras that don't have some features like face rubbing and supports, like the recruitable bosses and Amiibo characters.

If you mean the top of the poll, it's mostly Conquest characters. For the male one, 3 and 6 are Birthright, 5 is the avatar, 4 and 10 are neutral. So, half of them are Conquest-only.

For the female side, 1 is the avatar, 3, 6 and 7 are Birthright exclusive and 5 is neutral. The other half is Conquest-only.

It's interesting that Odin and Lazward are so high up while Gurei, Matoi, and Sallya being so low.

Considering that they are literally Owain, Inigo, Gaius, Cordelia and Tharja, I'm confused, also how is Orochi at the bottom?

Odin, Lazward and Luna are literally Owain, Inigo and Severa, but Gurei, Matoi and Shara are just new characters based on the Awakening ones, although there's some dialogue that implies they're reincarnations (or previous incarnations) especially in Shara's case.
