Instead they report an 88 both Fire Emblem Fates Revelation for 3DS, which Fire Emblem The Blazing Blade per Game Boy Advance: the latter is a historical title in its own way, being the very first game of the series to be brought to the West (with the simple name of Fire Emblem, which arrived in Europe in 2004) after years in which the series remained confined to the territory only Japanese.
