Brand-new illustrator, and new art direction in general. Unfortunately, it looks 3D... though perhaps a touch prettier than the GC and Wii installments...

The character design and battle animations look much better than the previous 3D titles.

Nintendo Heats Things Up With a Fire Emblem Awakening Nintendo 3DS Bundle

The beautiful blue system is emblazoned with stylish Fire Emblem artwork, has the game pre-installed on the hardware and comes packaged with a 4GB SD memory card. It will be available at a suggested retail price of $199.99, a great value for fans of the series.

Fire Emblem Awakening is the first entry in the fantasy turn-based strategy series on Nintendo 3DS. It tells the story of Lord Chrom and his growing army of companions as they band together to save the world from a rising evil. Fire Emblem Awakening features a gorgeous art style and voice acting, plus an epic storyline with a massive lineup of memorable characters with unique personalities. As with past entries in the series, every decision the player makes is vital, as characters lost in battle are gone forever. A demo of Fire Emblem Awakening will be available in the Nintendo eShop on Jan. 17.

Starting on launch day, additional maps will be available to purchase and download. The first downloadable map will be free for a limited time and will be followed by additional maps on a weekly basis. Players with a copy of Fire Emblem Awakening and a broadband Internet connection will be able to access the downloadable content through the in-game world map.

Very negative review by Tactical Insights:

Matthew Emirzian wrote:Casual mode returns from Fire Emblem: Heroes of Light and Shadow, along with several difficulty modes. I think Casual mode is a good addition that makes Fire Emblem more accessible. I appreciate multiple difficulty modes aimed at beginner to veteran players, but only if the modes aimed at veterans are balanced and well designed. In Awakening this is simply not the case.


It's going on my backlog for posting on the frontpage.

What a huge surprise this is. First FE game that disappoints in nearly 22 years! I guess this is what we can expect also from the MegaTen crossover...

Oh and you save her from a life of apparent "slavery" (I'll let you guess which sort), and she has lines like "People often forget I've been around the block a few thousand times." I wish I was making this up. But it's ok, because she's really a '1,000 year old dragon' or something. I found this character far more offensive than any combat related issue.
