Hey this looks very similar to Fire Emblem. Does it play anything like that? And how much of the game is voice acted, and how much story is to be expected. How long is the game for the average person? Thanks.

1. No.
2. Not much. They cited budget.
3. Not much in the first one, really just pinning down plot points for the series.
4. 8 hours on average.
