Tohru Narihiro, the section director at Intelligent Systems, had the idea of creating a turn-based strategy game in a warlike environment. That idea gave birth to Famicom Wars. Its novel and complex game system made it a popular title in Japan. This game system had many possibilities, so they squeezed it more, but with RPG elements in the line of Final Fantasy or Dragon Quest and focusing on individual characters and a story with the game. The director for this was Shouzo Kaga. This was how the first Fire Emblem was created.
