Fire Emblem: Awakening coming to America in 2013 exclusively for 3DS!

Fire Emblem: Awakening for Nintendo 3DS (or “Fire Emblem Kakusei” as it’s called in Japan) has been confirmed for American release thanks to the June 2012 Nintendo Direct Conference! It will be released sometime in 2013.

Here is a Japanese gameplay trailer for Fire Emblem: Awakening.

During the Nintendo Direct video, Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime briefly mentioned the game, a title that has been highly anticipated in the Land of the Rising Sun; but garnered a lot more attention than is usual for the very fact that Nintendo was tight-lipped on whether the game would ever see the light of day in the West.

Thankfully it will!

Fire Emblem: Awakening marks the first time that the series has been released for the Nintendo 3DS next-gen portable, and the first-time that the series has seen paid downloadable content released for it. Unlike some of the more recent Fire Emblem games, Fire Emblem: Awakening marks an ALL-NEW entry in the critically acclaimed strategy RPG series, with all-new characters, story, scenarios, gameplay elements and more.

Battles are more dynamic and cool looking than ever before in Fire Emblem: Awakening 3DS.

The new ability to Team Up with supporting characters for combo attacks is newly introduced, as is the ability to create your own customized character in the “My Unit” feature. You can have five skills at any one time, with surplus Skills held in a character Skill bank, and the game features a traversable World Map as seen in Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones and Fire Emblem Gaiden, with the Special Skills from Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance returning.

Relationships play a big role in Fire Emblem: Awakening, not only can characters get married, they can even have children! This includes your player-created character. Already released in Japan is the first DLC for the game which features Marth making his grand return! The popular Roy character (made famous in the West in Super Smash Bros. Melee) also returns as DLC.
