    I wish translating older games in series like this and officially releasing them was feasible.

    • $36598391

      Nintendo of America could easily do that, they’re just lazy, they have more then enough money and it’s not like they need to hire voice actors or anything, translating text for such an old game would take no time at all to do

        Well , I bet if they did do this they would at a minimum triple the amount of money it would cost them to translate just the text, and as a digital download they wouldn’t even have to worry about “physical copy” costs.
        Come on Nintendo be greedy and want my money just a little bit please?

          I remember some facet of Nintendo once saying that none of the JP FE games would ever come to America becasue they’re too hard.

        “They’re just lazy”

        lol, no. Nintendo doesn’t want to waste their time and money on an old fire emblem game that probably won’t sell that well. Just because you want it doesn’t mean enough people want it to be worthwhile.

      It would be my dream for NA to release the older titled via eShop. Hell, they could even make it a 3D classic or something! Le Sigh…

  • One of the best in the series. It’s a shame we can’t pay for an official translation.

    “And now it’s for the West too!”
    Haha. As if. April Fools!
