By Spencer . August 4, 2008 . 12:27pm

Fire Emblem: Shin Ankoku Ryuu to Hikari no Ken (Fire Emblem: New Dark Dragon and Light Sword) has an interesting way to use Nintendo Wi-Fi. If you can get online there is an online shop that sells items, sometimes rare items, for in game money. I hope Nintendo plans to rotate items in the shop […]
