Hey now, I forgot I made this!
I'm glad to hear everybody's enjoying the game. Honestly, the lowest review score I have seen it get is an 8.5 out of 10, and the fans are thrilled for such an overwhelming success for the series. I hope this is the last proof Nintendo needs that the outside world likes Fire Emblem (and by extension, other games that they might deem "too japanese").
I couldn't procure a physical copy of the game, so I just downloaded it on the eshop. It takes up about half of the 3DS' standard 2GB memory card, but it's well worth it to have such an amazing RPG game ready to play whenever.

This is the first fire emblem game where I didn't start on the lowest difficulty level. Probably a bad decision on my part but I guess it will keep things interesting.
Yes, the difficulty in this game is comparable to Radiant Dawn, which I personally deem the hardest in the series. Sure, you could just pair up essential units like My Unit, Chrom, and Frederick to strongarm entire armies the whole game, but for the first run of the game, I heartily reccomend everybody play on Normal mode (the easiest difficulty). Since you won't know which character you for sure want to level up for your final team until long after you've recruited them. Hard mode playthroughs of Fire Emblem games are best done with such decisions made preemptively, so just focus on enjoying the game now.
The First DLC chapter: Champions of Yore came out when this game did, and is free to download until March 6th, so don't miss out! The chapter pits you against heroines from past Fire Emblem games, and you are rewarded with Prince Marth to use in the story mode. The second chapter arrived today as well, and is priced at 2.5 US dollars. I haven't tried it out myself yet, but the reward for that is Roy. And don't forget to check out the spotpass challenges for even more characters (these ones do not have supports or dialogue, but can be rerecruited if they are killed in classic mode). I think all this extra content serves as a great way to grind for experience in the game, and offers much content for fans of the series to enjoy.
