Learn How To Support And Pair Up In ‘Fire Emblem: Awakening’

By Joseph Leray

Nintendo kindly released a handy — and awkwardly narrated — introduction to some of “Fire Emblem: Awakening”’s more nuanced mechanics: support and “pair up.”

Both mechanics depend on smart troop placement to increase individual units effectiveness in battle, adding a unique spin on “Fire Emblem”’s tactical RPG formula. The video does a really good job of explaining complex tactics in simple language, and — if I’m understanding correctly — players could conceivably set up four-on-one encounters.
