Fire Emblem Awakening was a game that succeeded on the back of its enormous, highly varied cast. From a candy-loving thief named Gaius to a borderline-stalkery dark mage named Tharja, Awakening was brimming with memorable characters, all brought to life through a phenomenal translation by 8-4, Ltd — and the unlockable support conversations that allowed you to spend time with your units in a casual, laid-back context were the icing on the cake.
For Fire Emblem Fates, Nintendo opted to instead localize the game themselves through their notoriously talented Treehouse division. Above, watch a smattering of the support conversations available in Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright, including conversations with Corrin, Felicia, Hana, Subaki, Takumi, Kaze, Rinkah, and Saizo.
Fire Emblem Fates comes out in North America on Feb. 19, 2016.
