North American 3DS owners have been playing through Fire Emblem: Awakening since February, while Europe watches on with envious eyes.

There's not that much longer to wait though, as Intelligent Systems' turn-based strategy title is set to make the journey across the pond on 19th April. There's even an exclusive 3DS XL bundle with the game pre-installed being released alongside it.

To celebrate the impeding release, Nintendo has delivered a new puzzle panel in the 3DS StreetPass Mii Plaza. It's the same one North America received a few months back and will be available straight away - after acknowledging the SpotPass notification you should pick up your first puzzle piece.

We think it's a fantastic 3DS title as we explained in our Fire Emblem: Awakening review. Alongside the demo - which is residing in the eShop right now - this puzzle panel will help to get Europeans through the final week of waiting.
