Rarest And Most Valuable Fire Emblem Games

Due to the amazing cult following coupled with it's incredible tactical/RPG gameplay, it's no surprise the Fire Emblem series is so desirable among game collectors. The series initially launched in 1990 for the Nintendo Famicom and has since produced 13 games across 7 consoles and handhelds. With the initial release being exclusive to Japan, the North American gamers had to wait until the 7th title to finally get their hands on these games. The popularity has since skyrocketed and so has the desirability which has led to some very rare and expensive titles.


Here is our list of some of the most collectible games from the Fire Emblem series. Keep in mind that some of these titles might not be the rarest or most expensive at this point, but it's only a matter of time until they are.


Fire Emblem: Thracia 776


Console: Super Famicom

The rarest and most valuable of the Fire Emblem series. Thracia 776 is the 5th release of the franchise and the last produced for the Super Famicom. Originally released for the Nintendo Power flash carts in 1999, gamers had an opportunity to purchase the Deluxe version which included the game, a world map, 2 plushies, a VHS tape, and a few other items. If you manage to get your hands on a complete box set, it will set you back about $300, but what a great addition to any collection.

Fire Emblem: Path Of Radiance


Console: GameCube


A close 2nd on our list in value, but it's just as desirable as Thracia 776. Released for the GameCube in 2005, Path Of Radiance is the 9th game in the series and the first home console release for the North American market. It was also the first to boast 3d cel-shaded graphics, voice overs, and a new skill system within the game.

Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn


Console: Wii

A sequel to Path Of Radiance, Radiant Dawn continues into the incredible storyline of its predecessor and features much of the same style of graphics and gameplay. Radiant Dawn is the 10th installment to the Fire Emblem series and the only release for the Nintendo Wii (Not including the Wii Virtual Console). This game is also known for being the most challenging game of the series.

Fire Emblem


Console: Game Boy Advance

Fire Emblem was released in 2003 for the Nintendo Game Boy Advance and marks the first of the series to be released outside of Japan. Regarded as one of the best games of the series and arguably one of the best rpg/tactical games ever created. Surprisingly this game is still relatively affordable, but has been on a steady rise over the past couple of years.

Loose:
$30 - $40
CIB:
$60 - $75
NIB:
$100 - $120
Rarity:
Uncommon
Desirability:
High





Fire Emblem: Awakening



Console: 3DS

A 3DS game making the list? Yes, and once you play this game you will know exactly why. It's incredible. Beautiful graphics, amazing gameplay, and a great story. The game was released April 2012 in Japan and later released in North America in early 2013. This is the 13th game of the Fire Emblem series and by far the most engaging and polished experience out of them all. Due to Nintendo grossly underestimating the sales, the physical copy of the game quickly sold out in the states. Of course you have the option to download a digital copy from the Nintendo eShop, but who wants to do that? The groundwork is set for Fire Emblem: Awakening to become one of the most desirable games in the series.

Pricing 2015
Loose:
$25 - $30
CIB:
$30 - $40
NIB:
$40 - $50
Rarity:
Common
Desirability:
High
