The Making of Fire Emblem: 25 Years of Development History contains some fun trivia regarding the series. You can find all the information I translated thus far in one place here.

This post is the development of the fourth title in the series, Genealogy of the Holy War. This is part of a lengthy interview with series veteran Toru Narihiro (sometimes spelled Tohru Narihiro). I have been slowly working on translating the greater interview, so this is just an excerpt from it regarding this specific section. Though it is a little out of order, I hope to start going in order after this one.

VincentASM used excerpts from this interview for his wonderful analysis of FE4 on serenesforest here. Please give it a good read!

For those who have the book, these are excerpts from page 269 & 270.

As you can imagine, the process of doing all this took a lot of time, and I am unemployed…so if you like what I did, then…
