Fire Emblem: Three Houses from 2019 continued the Fire Emblem turn-based formula fans have fallen in love with, telling the story of mercenary that gets hired as a professor at a local academy and has to choose between three houses. There was also story-focused DLC released in 2019. While the Fire Emblem series has been successful for years, it only started hitting the U.S. in 2003.

Fire Emblem Warriors from 2017, however, is a different kind of game. Instead of offering turn-based, strategic gameplay, it features faster hack-and-slash combat. It's also handled primarily by Koei Tecmo, creators of the Dynasty Warriors franchise, instead of Intelligent Systems and Nintendo.
