At tonight’s Nintendo 3DS Software Showcase, there was a disturbing lack of Japanese role-playing games. However, as it turns out, there is such a game coming to North America, and that game is Fire Emblem: Awakening.Please enter the url to a YouTube video.
Moments after the showcase’s conclusion, IGN’s Rich George tweeted:
Reggie just confirmed to us that Fire Emblem Awakening is coming to the United States.
Why Nintendo didn’t mention the game at their showcase baffles me, but it’s wonderful to hear that the series isn’t dead outside of Japan; the previous Fire Emblem game for the Nintendo DS never made it outside the country. 4P will bring you more coverage of Fire Emblem: Awakening soon.
