Sounds interesting. Unfortunately I gave my SNES to my brother in-law back in the 90s. Oh well. I need to call him.I've been playing an old 1996 SNES game called "Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War." It's fan-translated, because it was never localized in the US.
It's interesting. One of its most outstanding novelties is the romance aspect of the game: Kind of like in Dragon Quest V—your party members get married, and halfway through the game, there's a timeskip, and you then play on as all their children (the story was originally meant to play out over more than 2 main acts, but they had to cut it short). But you get multiple options for who you let marry each other, and it effects which children end up being born, and what they inherit—so there's a lot of replay value.
The other main way in which it stands apart from other FE games is that it focuses a lot more on the overall plot, over character development (they wanted to make the characters' relationship-building a lot more interactive, but that had to be compromised due to limitations). It's pretty epic; a far larger-scale historical drama than any of its predecessors. And it's said to be the darkest Fire Emblem in the series.
It's the 4th Fire Emblem title (I think it was the 2nd & final one for the SNES), and it takes place on a different continent from the land of FE 1-3 & 5 and on.

Well, the English translation of the game is only available on computers, via emulation.Sounds interesting. Unfortunately I gave my SNES to my brother in-law back in the 90s. Oh well. I need to call him.
