After the Nintendo 3DS software showcase, Reggie Fils-Aime revealed that Fire Emblem: Awakening will be coming to North America. The game was not part of the 3DS software showcase but was accidentally announced by Fils-Aime while he was speaking with Kotaku’s Stephen Totilo. The game was first released in Japan on April 19th. There is no release date given for North America’s version of Fire Emblem: Awakening but it will be released for Nintendo 3DS.
Now, that’s a game that would have made some noise at E3 presentation.
This has been the best news from Nintendo in my opinion.
Nintendo of America delievers an epic shocker!!!!!
I don’t know why they just won’t announce this during the show, it would make it so epic. Good news though, Your body was ready Reggie!!
Thank you based God!
Hopefully people can stop complaining about it now. >_>
I know right.
ITS ABOUT DARN TIME!!!
I wish they would just have announced this during the show, pull out the big guns Ninty. Good news either way!!
I think there holding some other news back as well
I’m soooo happy about this. No hopefully we’ll see Bravely Default and Monster Hunter sometime soon.
i don’t know what to say…
Here, let me say it for you… YEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS
it was inevitable that it would come to na.
Considering that this is my all-time favorite series, this totally redeems E3 for Nintendo.
I’m so ready for this game!!
Bravely default doubt it
So what else did they show and what’s all the wara wara about tomorrow
Single best piece of new from E3.
Accidentally revealed it? You mean they had no intention of revealing it in the first place?
Good lord, just what the fuck is so wrong with revealing things like FIRE EMBLEM AWAKENING COMING TO AMERICA? That’s not even new release information, that’s just mere localization news! Man, it’s THAT much of a crime to say even THAT?
Anyways, I’ve just found my reason to get the 3DS now. Fire Emblem has always been my guilty pleasure.
I’ve only played sacred stones. Is it anything like that?
based on the mechanics its almost exactly like that
Aside from Sacred Stones and Fire Emblem Gaiden (an obscure NES release), this is the only Fire Emblem to feature grinding.
There are some features not in Sacred Stones, like marriage and reclassing, and some mechanics like weight and stealing are gone.
All in all, it’s a Fire Emblem: You move your units strategically on a grid, and level-ups are determined by the RNG goddess.
Fire Emblem has always been my guilty pleasure too. Maybe now I’ll get a 3DS too. Though I’ve been telling myself I’m not going to get one until they release a Zelda for it that isn’t a remake like OoT 3D…
I’d get it for a Majora mask 3d remake though ;)
Why is it a “guilty pleasure”? O_o
HELL YES!!!!! :D
I like how Reggie was like “Wait, that wasn’t on the Press Kit? Screw it, Imma throwing the fans a bone!”
Thank you very much Nintendo! We need more Fire Emblem in the West. Leave luck to heaven.
Life is good again!
I will be forever grateful to those journalists from Kotaku. Otherwise God only knows how long it would have taken before they’d have finally announced it.
