  • Hngh. Awesomeness overflowing. xD

    • I see you’re feeling better. :)

      • Yah. I am still stressed though, I have like 4-5 tests next week, 2 papers to write, and a couple of homework assignments.

        • AzureRyuu

          Ah, good luck with that! I just got done with finals myself. And yes, Awesomeness IS overflowing.

  • Prinnydoom

    Dammit america -____- so jelly

    • Yeah, I had to buy a second 3ds, wasn’t a total waste got an XL.

    • AzureRyuu

      Ah, yeah, sorry about the April Release D:.

  • Sergio Macellaro

    Sure buy.

    • raymk

      Yep this is the main reason I wanted a 3ds ^_^.

  • Muffum

    Neat Sword confirmed for horrendously overpowered.

  • pho_Enix

    Can it be April already? This easily looks like the best upcoming 3DS title (that has a confirmed lovalisation at least).

  • $29082171

    It’s been a while since I played an FE game.

    I’m replaying FE7 just to to be in the mood when this game arrives, it’s longer than what I remember.

  • Foryth

    This seems to me like one of the most interesting Fire Emblems from recent years. I barely played Shadow Dragon and Radiant Dawn. (though I still want to finish them both eventualy)

  • Darkrise

    Need a part-time job so badly now….

  • This Fire Emblem is absolutely fantastic. Expanding on the series’ old school mechanics has been implemented wonderfully. This is a sure buy for me and a great edition to the 3DS library.

  • PreyMantis

    The wait is killing me…

  • Looks so damn good. Easily my most anticipated game next year, slightly edging out MH3U. Probably won’t buy anything except Fable II from now until February as I need to start saving up for a new PC. I would’ve bought a Wii U but since I just got an XL and MH3U is also gonna be on this, I think I can just wait. A shame the VA is typical Fire Emblem bad. =/

    • raymk

      Except all of the english VA is not bad.

  • SetzerGabbiani

    Pre-ordered this, Monster Hunter Ultimate (Wii U), and Etrian Odyssey 4 today. Can’t wait to get into this strategy goodness!

  • Ethan_Twain

    Oh my gosh. I genuinely worry if this won’t effect my studies come February.

  • MrTyrant

    One of my most anticipated game next year. I can hardly wait anymore.

  • YoshEE

    Sweet!!! Can’t wait to get it on Feb since day goes by so fast :D

  • MrJechgo

    A lot of fun… except your units get killed… good thing you can restart a mission if one dies.

    • MrTyrant

      Cannot you save your game in the middle of the battle any time you want in this version? D: or just the tipycal suspend?

    • Yvonne Tsang

      Casual mode if you don’t want permanent deaths. :D

    • Eilanzer

      the best feature in this game ^^ makes your characters valuable and you start to care about them and RLY think about your moves.

  • TruSpindash

    This is defiantly the game I am most looking forward to next year. Been a while since I’ve enjoyed a good fire emblem with the last one never coming state side and Shadow Dragon not being a personal favorite of mine.

  • Neophoton

    So hyped for this game. C:

  • Lisa Fraulein

    I could not contain my excitedness.. This is going to be awesome!

  • So glad the wait isn’t long. Actually getting Etrian Odyssey IV and this, the year is pretty good start.

  • Oltheros

    Not a fan of original voice acting getting cut…such is life.

    • JustThisOne

      It’s weird, because this is probably one of the only series that I can think of that I’d be okay with the voices cut. FE has never really been voice heavy, besides super important cutscenes. As a result, they always end up sounding drastically different from what I imagined them to be… xD

      Though, I do wonder who they would’ve casted.

    • Foryth

      More often than not I play these games with no sound, or I go through the dialogue so fast that the voice actors don’t have the time to finish their lines, so I don’t really give a damn. It would’ve been nice I guess, but this is nothing new with JRPGs.

      Hiya! BTW. ;)

  • Super excited about this game. Shame the title logo looks pretty bland.

  • Setsu Oh

    wait, is there a world and continuing story across the games?
