Fire Emblem: Awakening Awakens In U.S. This February [Update]


Fire Emblem: Awakening is headed to North America soon—sooner than you might have thought.


Nintendo of America announced via a Nintendo Direct this morning that the game is slated for release on February 4th, 2013. Meanwhile, Europe will get the game in April.


As previously reported, Fire Emblem: Awakening has downloadable episodes in Japan, and these episodes will be released in the west as well.


Update: European release window added.
