If you're anticipating Fire Emblem Kakusei (that's Fire Emblem Awakening in English) for 3DS, you'll be pleased to know a few more details about the upcoming strategy RPG have reached our eyes.

According to Jump Magazine (via Andriasang), the game brings back the free-roaming map system as seen recently in the GBA Ambassador re-release of Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones, letting players explore the world map to visit shops and engage in battles.

In-battle, Awakening also features the Dual system that lets adjacent characters enter battle together, increasing their attack capabilities.

You also have the ability to create your own custom unit to take onto the battlefield, who will prove an integral part of the story.

Fire Emblem doesn't feature on the most recent release schedules for Europe or North America, but if that changes we'll let you know.
