What’s FE’s excuse? If what Fields is saying is true, then the drought wouldn’t have affected s***.

That's irrelevant to the point I'm trying to contest.

Also, Etrian is huge in Japan.

Yes, it is. However... in Japan, EO4 came out three months before Awakening did. It was only released alongside Awakening in North America... where the series isn't that popular.

Additionally, Awakening had to compete with Etrian Odyssey 4 around its release date, yet Etrian isn’t as big as Awakening. Why? Could it be because of waifu’s and supports?

Or! Or... it could be because Etrian Odyssey has never been that popular of a series.

So is FE in Japan, really huge. Also you do know Fire Emblem has a pretty big following in the west since FE7 right? And Awakening got advertisement from a demo and even Smash itself featured Awakening heavily.

Awakening would've sold the same, it looked pretty and had lots of hype and appeal behind it. It had proper stuff like a proper demo to build hype.

This.

S Supports is are a core portion of the franchise now.

It’s just as important as, say, the weapons triangle.

Get outta here, @A_Field_Lover

By that logic, Bonus EXP is a core portion of the franchise.

S Supports have been in two games.

4 games actually, 5 if you count dlc. Also full voice acting was only in two games. Does that mean they should remove it cause it would waste resources?

You're comparing the two in the same years.

Not possible, as Smash was announced after Awakening's success, hence the initial reveal of 2 characters in the trailer (Robin and Lucina). That was in July of 2014 - September of 2014 included the launch of the Smash 3DS version with a starting roster of 4 (Robin, Lucina, Marth, Ike). Later on, DLC for Roy and Corrin would come out in 2015 & 2016.

Awakening's initial announcement was in April 2012 for Japan, February 2013 for America. Smash did not make it more popular, for it already sold 1 million worldwide by the time Smash dropped. It probably gave it some more people to take it seriously, especially with 6 characters (kinda more like 8, with 2 character swaps).

Anyways, TL;DR: Awakening was popular way before Smash.

Does it really matter? Awakening would've been successful regardless because it was at the right place at the right time. Complete with honeymoon phase that lasted a while. It can rival FE7's nostalgia!

Fates doesn't count as 3 games.

I personally only got into FE thanks to Awakening and Fates, so no I like the dating sim aspect of it.
To see with eyes unclouded by hate.

It still has the excact same mechanics, characters, all that. The only difference is the chapters, the path exclusive characters and grinding/no grinding.

Honestly... I don't think Fields is wrong here.

I really don't think having slightly less marriage options would be that big of blow the sales of the game.


I don't think it would be any, I've always maintained 99% of the reason Awakening and Fates did better is because they were actually advertised which 9-12 weren't at all.
