References

  1. "In the first Emblem game, depending on which village you went to, you could only choose either Arran or Samson. But no matter which character you chose, the story didn't change. When I said, "Aww, I wish it would change something," my senior told me, "We can't due to limited memory capacity." [...] I remembered how futile it seemed then, and I said, "Maeda-san, wouldn't you want to play a game where you could see what would happen if you chose the other side? I want to try this!""Hitoshi Yamagami (Iwata Asks: Fire Emblem Fates)
