Typically in a Fire Emblem game you play as a premade character or a character who’s not necessarily the main focus of the story. Nintendo showed off more details of the newest Fire Emblem game coming to 3DS in 2016. This time you create the character and you are put at the forefront of the story.
You choose one of two paths, Hoshido or Nohr. The path you choose determines your fate and the direction of the story. Hoshido gives you a more traditional experience while the Norh side turns up the difficulty and creates a more complex story to enjoy. Whichever you choose, you are the star.
