Posted by Damien McFerran

Release date confirmed during Nintendo Direct

The highly-anticipated 3DS strategy RPG Fire Emblem: Awakening is coming to North America on 4th February, it has been revealed.

The all-important date was disclosed during today's North American Nintendo Direct presentation. During the video, great care was taken to explain the game's relationship system, which can significantly influence the outcome of battles. The European release will take place in April 2013, as was confirmed during the EU Nintendo Direct.

We've already gone hands-on with the Japanese version, so be sure to check out our Fire Emblem: Awakening first impressions.

Much earlier then I thought it would come out. I was thinking July or august. Glad its much sooner! I hope there is some type of pre order bonus.

Funny how it was announced for the EU much earlier than NA, but it's going to end up coming out sooner in the States.

Not sure if I should pre-order, since it currently doesn't have a bonus, and it can only really go down in price so I might just wait on this one. Unless they're giving out DLC for free... are they????

I don't think Japan got any of the dlc for free. So I highly doubt it will happen in the west.

@Tech101 Actually, they got the first DLC pack for free for a limited time (only through 1 month from release)

Looking forward to this, but my thirst for Fire Emblem is constantly quenched by The Sacred Stones~

If I were to choose one game to own in 2013 for my 3ds library it would be this one!!

Does anyone here know if you can battle online? That would be fantastic...

Will be picking this one up. Tried getting into the Wii game, but I think this game suits a portable system more.
