Fire Emblem also has its games in Nintendo’s portable device, the GBA. This game was the first game playable in the GBA but it was originally planned to come out only for Nintendo 64. It was even announced with a couple of images from the time, with a more SNES-like style and an apparent 3D background. However, nothing about battles or further functionality was shown and it disappeared without any previous advice. Its original name was planned to be Fire Emblem: Maiden of the Dark. Some time later it started being adapted for a GBA release with a not-so-good looking style, but its style got better until it became what it is now. The final product was so good that it was settled as the base for the two following GBA games.
Talking more about history, Fire Emblem Fuuin no Tsurugi is the sequel of Blazing Sword / Rekka no Ken, developing 20 years after it, but it was released before, something called a “prequel”. In the continent of Elibe, mankind spread his dominion across the land many years after the war between humans and dragons. There was a pretty good balance of peace and power between Elibe nations until King Zephiel of Bern commanded his military forces to conquer the rest of the continent, passing through anyone and anything that came across his path. He showed his intentions of invading the Lycia Alliance, a nation ruled by various Dukes and Marquesses. And Roy, the future Marquess of Pherae, gets involved in the conflict and the story begins.
Roy also makes his appearance along Marth in Super Smash Bros Melee (Game Cube) as a playable character, but he was only introduced to the roster so that his game could gain some renown, because his game was not yet released when the game launched for the Game Cube. Zephiel is also the same boy that Eliwood and the others saved in Blazing Blade (the first FE in English / Spanish) that now rules over Bern instead of his father, King Desmond; some more things about them and the history are explained here.
