Arguably the most awesome 20 seconds for a fan of the series,
Ever since I played Fire Emblem and The Sacred Stones on Nintendo’s Gameboy Advance, I’ve been hooked to the series. Its tactical mix of turn based strategy and role playing was addictive, and the permanent character death option made every battle a life-or-death encounter. Nintendo of America has released a new teaser trailer for the upcoming Fire Emblem: Awakening for the 3DS. It may be short but it is oh so sweet.
Showcasing a mix of 3D graphics with cel-shaded graphics, the game looks to bring alive the epicness so commonly seen in console editions of the series like Radiant Dawn. Even better, players can now create their own characters and do team-up attacks with other characters against enemies. And special skills. Wonderful, wonderful special skills also make a return.
Fire Emblem: Awakening has been out in Japan since April 2012, and is due to come out on February 4th 2013 in North America and in April 2013 for the 3DS.
