Our friends at RPG Fan bring us great news: Fire Emblem Awakening is seeing United States release on February 4th, with DLC information and prices to be released later. Awakening is a new Fire Emblem story after two remakes of the first two main-story games (Shadow Dragon and Monshou no Nazo) which features changes to the time-tested battle system, as well as what developers describe as a “greatest hits” assortment of ideas from past games in the series.
This game is going to be mind-blowing. After the underwhelming Wii title Radiant Dawn, the DS games were good, but this looks to be mind-blowing. Newbies will enjoy it, but veterans are going to go ga-ga over the DLC, assuming we get what Japan has thus far. This sounds like a PR post, but I’m that excited for this.
My desire for timely Google hits also lends some credence to my posting this. Oh, glorious advertising money, come unto me!
