DS, Nintendo, £29.99

Here’s a scorching blast from the past: a remake of the almost two-decade old NES game for the Nintendo DS.

Not familiar with the Fire Emblem of yore? Rest assured this is a charming, turn-based strategy title packed with winning RPG characters with lots of dragons and magic thrown in for good measure. Unlike its 1980s incarnation, when online play was but a twinkle in Tim Berners-Lee’s eye, gamers can now do battle or play co-operatively online with other Fire Emblem fans. Retro gaming at its finest.
