Fire Emblem to Start Japanese 3DS DLC Service in 2012

Get more quests

We haven't heard much about Fire Emblem on 3DS for the past few months, but Nikkei (via Andriasang) report the game will kick off the system's add-on DLC service in early 2012.

Now called Fire Emblem: Awakening, the game will release in Japan on 19th April, with a new "free map" system letting you explore the world with a little less restraint.

The Nintendo Direct online press conference held earlier today in Japan didn't mention the potential DLC, but Nikkei has unrivalled history in getting Nintendo things right.
