The next Fire Emblem game arrives this year

Fire emblem is awesome

Last week’s Nintendo announcement wasn’t exactly surprising. Mario, Donkey Kong and various other familiar mascots were trotted out for a bunch of new games, while the release date for the new Nintendo 3DS was the main drawpoint of the show. But ask any RPG fan watching, and they’d tell you that Nintendo spent their load in the opening minutes of that conference, with a Fire Emblem money-shot for the ages. And you can expect that game to unleashed later this year.

According to a Nintendo Australia Newsletter (via IGN), the untitled Fire Emblem game will indeed release this year. And that’s about all we know right now, so here’s the proof:

If you haven’t played the previous game, Fire Emblem Awakening, then you’re missing out on one of the finest turn-based RPG experiences ever made. I can blame Geoff for getting me hooked on that game, as it got me emotionally invested in my various characters. Fire Emblem Awakening wasn’t just a solid mix of tactics and RPG mechanics, but also a game where death could be permanent, and you could lose hours of hard work. And by hard work, I mean pairing up your favourite characters to produce some offspring, as improving their relationship resulted in marriage eventually. And getting it on.

In short, one of the very best RPG games ever made, in the palm of your hands.

      Indeed, but I can’t help but feel that the 3DS gets the better exclusives sometimes

        Handhelds gets amazing games. Which is why I never play into the whole superiority of platform game, if you make everything about that more often than not you’ll ignore handhelds and thus miss out on some of the best games ever made.

          Picked up a DSiXL for my youngest son recently. Bought it before Nintendo started getting all weird this year. Decided against the 3DS due the XL not being available yet and against the Vita due to lack of quality titles available but there is such a huge library available. I wanted him to get his hands on Mario Bros again (the Wii has been packed away for a year and a half now) and experience some awesome classic playable titles like Contra, Metal Gear and Mario Kart.

            Can’t go wrong with the DS/3DS really, the quality of games is amazing. Great choice. only crap thing is finding games though, but the mainstream ones are easy to find like Mario etc

        I was almost sold on the Wii U when I saw how awesome the animation was in the Mario Bros released, then I saw it on the gamepad and my mind nearly exploded. Great quality, just run by a bunch of clowns it would seem.

            Not in my family at least. I’ll have to do an in-depth research into whomever I marry one day to find out if there has been a ginger, and if so, why said ginger wasn’t ostracized to the gulag’s of Siberia!

        LOL Do you like turn-based games though? You should really try this out, the strategy element is amazingly deep!
