Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon And Avalon Code Confirmed For February 2009

By Spencer . December 17, 2008 . 7:34am

image The retail leaks were spot on. Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and its online Pegasus Knight battles arrive on February 16. Sometime later in the month Marvelous and Matrix Software’s original DS RPG, Avalon Code, will also be in stores. In March Marvelous follows up with Flower, Sun, and Rain, one of Grasshopper Manufacture’s earlier PlayStation 2 games where Sumio and his “metallic” assistant Katherine are stuck in a time loop.


These games are on Nintendo’s Q1 2009 Nintendo DS lineup while Rhythm Heaven is absent. Nintendo’s press page says it’s coming in the first half of 2009 so maybe we’ll see Rhythm Heaven here in spring or the summer. Nintendo probably has to do some localization work on Rhythm Heaven since some songs have Japanese vocals. Also missing from Nintendo’s list are games like Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride which Square Enix already confirmed is coming out on February 17. So, Nintendo’s list doesn’t appear to be 100% complete, but here’s what you can expect on the DS in early 2009.

    I just came here to say that I think February hates my wallet.

    Agreed, especially if Suikoden hits around then too.

  • Volcynika

    Suikoden’s actually around March 11th I think, so it’s close!

  • Sora

    man most of those games are gay except for suikoden and avalon code,already played fire emblem

  • Volcynika

    Thought we’d gotten past calling games “gay,” but I guess not!
