    wow, noa has certainly give an awesome spotlight to fire emblem. I already dedicated the first card along with this song.

    • StarWarudo

      C’mon baby light my fire~

  • Haha! I didn’t expect them to use the obviously evil sorcerer, of all the characters. Nintendo is pushing the game hard, huh.

  • It’s great to see Nintendo actually marketing this game big time. However, I’m disappointed that none of my favorite characters have cards, at least ones that I see here. Where’s the Lissa, Cordelia, *Spoiler*, Miriel and Olivia cards?

  • Garlyle

    That Emmeryn one is completely not okay

    • EmptyWarrior

      I got a good chuckle out of it.

      • MrTyrant

        Yeah’ it’s funny.

        Wasn’t she also an spotpass character? cannot wait. Nintendo should have realesed some of them in this valentine.

        • Linhua

          … well at least they gave me L’Arachel.

          … that’s enough for me… XD

      • Zal_Yagun

        Completely ironic for the well informed and a gut punch to everyone else

    • Locklear93

      I dunno, it was totally okay with me. She rubbed me the wrong way so badly that when THE CHOICE arrived (avoiding spoilers here), I was cheering for being able to decide. I hated her so very much.

    • SetzerGabbiani

      It is rather off-putting and morbid.

    • Tails the Foxhound

      It’s so creepy!

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      RNG is controlling her there.^_^

  • Good to see someone at Nintendo of America has a sense of humor. #2-4 made me lol.

  • Oltheros

    Where is the Tharja one? Oh well, these are pretty creative and funny so good job Nintendo

    • Seconded – Tharja would have been glorious.

      • Linhua

        Thirded – … She was the first one I was looking for… =

  • $39420547

    if i had a real gf i wonder how she would react if i send her on of those pics….hmmm ;)

  • Enma_Kozato

    lol nice job removing the pegasus from Sumia’s card. Now I have to wonder where her other hand went.

  • MikeTxn

    I just noticed that Walhart is behind Emmeryn in her picture. D:

  • this game has such great artwork! should be a anime spin-off.

    • MrTyrant

      No, they should do more game like this.

      • They will. Fire Emblem games come out a bit slow between each (over a year average between recent releases), but Intelligent Systems is still making them – provided that they’re not occupied with other projects, like Advance Wars or other Nintendo titles.

  • Ladius

    I’m currently enjoying Awakening, and I’m both amazed and pleased to see how much Nintendo is supporting it.

    This is the example of how a “niche” tactical jrpg can turn into a commercial success if quality and marketing are both there, and I can only hope jrpg publishers are moved to try this kind of tactics to make their games more relevant (not that some of them haven’t already started – Namco did a wonderful job with Ni no Kuni even before Awakening was released).

  • lol, love Tiki’s card XD

  • Tails the Foxhound

    I like 4 and 1 the best, the Emmeryn one is downright “stalker girlfriend” material.

  • Well played. I chuckled at Emmeryn’s.
