Awesome competition! Entered, and fingers crossed!! Good luck 🍀
Very generous. Best of luck everyone.
Entered I would love that XL!
I'd love to see Sleeptight become the name of a future Fire Emblem game.
Thank you! Good luck everybody!
I never quite got why these types of quizzes always have obvious questions. Is it to prevent spambots? Anyway, good luck everybody.
I never win competitions, but i'm really counting on this!
Oooh my, I hope the random picker thingy picks me, would looooove this so much! If I was Alex I'd be tempted to just keep it all to myself.
@DoctorOverbuild I've entered... I need the Fire Emblem Fates Limited Edition so that I can actually PLAY the game...
I love a new 3ds XL
Good luck to all who enter!
Really hope I win, would be awesome! Thanks for the competition, good luck everyone!
I guess its all up to 'fate' now
Entered! The design on the console looks amazing, and loved previous FE games. Good luck everyone!
Awesome 😎 thanks for the opportunity and gd luck all.
good luck everyone
Very generous competition! Loving the look of that N3DS. Good luck to everyone entering
I already have a Fire Emblem Fates LE and while I would like that 3DS, it's too much messing about to transfer when I already have a New 3DS XL, so I entered and am going to give everything to my nephew. He seemed interested in the game when I showed him a trailer.
@Snargledon I think its purly so everyone has a chance of entering and winning. Its good PR for Nintendo and Nintendo Life.
Thank you for this chance guys! I voted too. Good luck to everyone!
Great competition. Good luck everyone!
I would so love to win this I really want the special edition but just don't have the money right now 😅
Wow what a great prize especially since I missed out on the special edition 😄Good luck everyone

Yeah! Some love for the UK fans! Awesome giveaway! Good Luck to everyone! I am drooling over that 3DS XL... looks sooo good!
Good luck everyone! Nintendo Life always do some of the best giveaways!
Awesome competition! Thanks and good luck all
The chances of winning get ever slimmer with each new entry so best of luck to everyone who entered!
Really regret selling my original aqua blue 3ds a couple of years back. Good luck everyone.
Good luck guys, really hyped for this competition.
@Alundra-1998 Hey if you win I'd love that DS
@Anthro-Monkey Was that one of the Nintendo 3DS Ambassador systems?
@DoctorOverbuild But I want the DS!!!!! It's mine!!!!
Entered as well, great competition and good luck everyone else.
That's a great giveaway. I'd love to it...
...I mean Id be foolish not to!
Please please please please please please...
Good luck all!
But mostly, good luck to me
Thank you NintendoLife - It is really sad to see people being forced to pay £140 for the SE on Ebay today
Fingers crossed, hopefully I win . Can't wait!
Having now entered, it is now up to Fate as to who wins. (I just hope Fate picks me )
Entered! Good god this is an awesome giveaway... here's hoping!
@Alundra-1998 Yes it was. Luckily I got more when I sold it on ebay than if it wasn't.
Wew, sounds like a very nice giveaway can't wait! Good luck everyone!
Good luck to all of you lovely people!
Don't forget about the #TeamBirthright and #TeamConquest twitter competition from Nintendo UK ends at 23:59pm tonight to win the Fates 3DS XL!
Looks amazing, good luck to everyone!
Shame there aren't more copies of the limited edition to give away, I decided not to buy the game at all because of how limited it was! It's all or bust for me and this series now, good luck whoever wins.
Good luck to everyone!
Thanks N-life for a great competition. My fingers, legs, arms and eyes are crossed . Good luck to all fellows.
(Great chance for people who hadn't managed to get hold of the limited edition)
Good luck everybody! Winner's gonna be one lucky human
...just realised, the three versions of FE line up beautifully with this competition...
Birthright - access/right to enter for Nlife readers
Conquest - search for winner(above all others)
Revelations - winner announced/awesome package in mail to open ;P
Really hope I win this, will give the awesome looking 3ds to my son so he can enjoy Nintendo gaming at its finest as I did in the 80's. Thanks Nintendolife!
that's me entered!
Good luck to everyone!
Really hoping to get my hands on this bundle!
Good luck everyone.
I don't have 3ds so this would be a great way to pick one up!!
I hope i win this good luck guys.
Entered just on the off chance I'll be lucky! I've been holding off on getting a new 3ds for over a year because I can't afford it. Competition ends on my birthday too, so I'll need to stall using my birthday money to buy fire emblem JUST in case
This would totally make up for not being able to get a hold of it the first time around! It's crazy that they didn't limit it to one per customer.
...I just need fate on my side...
I must have been under a rock as I didn't even know ninty were releasing a special edition 3ds xl for fire emblem. I have to say, it's a stunner! And it comes with the games too! Even better. Fair play to Nintendo life for bagging this as a prize.
Good luck all
GL! Must be so many people entering...
Entered this as I would love to win this, but good luck to all who enter.
With this many people entering, it goes to show popular the series is now. Nintendo should have made more the of special editions.
Guess it's just business...
Good luck to all.
my body is ready!
Actually forgot this released yesterday so I can hold onto my eshop money for now, thanks for the chance. Good luck everyone!
Awesome comptition. Cheers
@CrimsonTadpoles That would be one odd Fire Emblem game. XD
I've signed up just to enter this! Good luck everybody.
Good luck to everyone who has also entered! It's great to see NintendoLife give those of us who never got the chance to order the special 3ds xl/ special edition a chance!
RIP Scalpers (on one occasion)
I'm still super bummed out that I missed the preorders for the special edition on the Nintendo store... the email came in less than a minute after I logged out of my emails. When I saw the email it was too late. Now if I want it I would have to pay scalpers £120(never gonna happen). Will they ever restock it? Doesn't seem like they released that many copies for such a big franchise...
The problem for me is if I bought one of the versions and wanted to download the other routes it would take days to download(horrible Internet speed).
Almost missed this comp! Good luck guys!
I will die
Well i entered. Thats a thing. good luck!!!
good luck everyone!
Wait.... Has the competition ended yet? Or does it end at like midnight tonight or something?
hopefully, I only have 20 pounds and I need to give £20 to my mum for a 2nd copy of doom my brother accidentally bought because I would keep it in my collection
and like all giveaways, they announce the winners on youtube
Anyone know when the winners will be announced? Good luck to all ok winning btw
P.S. Hope the winners me
P.P.S didn't me to say everyone
please be fynnez, or I have to wait 5 months to spend money on ebay which will probably be the time when they are sold out
"Sorry, you're too late, the competition is now closed, please try again another time!" So they probably have their winner
Maybe it's due to bank holiday monday. Either way we just have to patient
@Ed_Fairway That could be a very good reason, maybe we will get told the winner tomorrow?
Yeah, and thanks for replying, this is much better than what you usually get on youtube. Over there, obscene moaning about something so trivial like reaction videos, but here it's clean and straight to the point, cheers.
P.S. Hope I wasn't rambling too much
@Lin_hyrule Most likely. Good luck everyone who entered, also I love your profile gif, where'd you find it? if you don't mind me asking?
@Lin_hyrule Cheers, hopefully the computer will be working for me. Plus I don't want to steal your style, so I'll start with this link and see what else is available.
@Lin_hyrule Thanks, and you too. And sorry if I'm repeating myself, but I just love the friendly atmosphere from the comments; no one being "politically correct", filling up hypothetical swear jars, just easy-going banter.
@Lin_hyrule The only problem being the reply option is so darn addictive. So I'll see you later when the winner's been announced.
@Lin_hyrule Wait do you mean me or just everyone?
Firstly, yes I know I said I'll come back after the winner's announced, but I'd just thought I'd leave this for those who have to get the game.
It's basically an emulator of fates avatar customization. This way we can experiment on how our potential avatars may look like.
@Arjanator we wait
@Lin_hyrule (Tries to think of a joke but fails) No clue
Looks like the FATES are deciding for this CONQUEST. Hopefully there will be a REVOLATION soon
@poperamone So long as people don't start raving that it's their BIRTHRIGHT to win.
@Shinzai Yeah sorry about that
It's only been two days, plus it is the half-term, so the winner could be on holiday. Nevertheless I agree that the anticipation is starting to slowly transition into impatience.
On a more positive note, I hope people have used/enjoyed the avatar customization link.
@Lin_hyrule Glad to be of help
I noticed the special edition is back on nintendos official store, but only as a £114 bundle with the Amiibos. Currently listed as unavailable but I bet some appear
I think I might have a theory, they're saving announcing the winner on their next video. If that is the case then we just need to wait it out for a couple more days. Plus for most of us it is the half term, so we can alternate between this, revision and some third thing.
@Ed_Fairway Revision... Crapskadoodles I'm screwed
@Shinzai Amen to that, a friend of mine is still soldiering on for exams.
@Lin_hyrule Same here, it's becoming a scary habit
@Lin_hyrule I'm glad I'm not the only one who procrastinates I always leave everything 'till the last moment
Day 3 since closing date, checked email, still nothing. On a higher note, Sun and Moon news tomorrow.
How many people have entered altogether tho (cuz it don't say and I want to calculate my odds)
I know I probably haven't won but I just want to know who did. I guess I'm just really impatient.
@DraconianPrinces ^^^ This is everyone in the comments rn xD
@Sairan_ I guess it isn't fated to have a Revelation about who had a Conquest over this competition just yet. I know it isn't my Birthright to win so I'm gonna pick a God and pray instead. Either way I'll still Chromgratulate the winner!
@DraconianPrinces Nice punning, much better than my "claiming birthright" pun. Had to apologize for that one (although that was self-imposed)
@Ed_Fairway It took me 20 minutes to come up with it but I'm a (Wo)man of passion when it comes to Fire Emblem and puns!
@Lin_hyrule Don't worry, chill. How's this, should anyone in the comment section win, please say so. Yeah silly idea but hey ho, such is life.
In preparation for either winning the competition/buying a copy of Birthright, I've just been looking up tips for leveling up characters. If anyone knows where I can get more info could you please me a link.
@Ed_Fairway I'd say that the Fire Emblem wiki and Serene's Forest are good places to start! Be warned though, the Fire Emblem wiki might have spoilers. I hope this will help you tip the scales!
@DraconianPrinces Thank you, hopefully the wiki won't be Robin me of the story. Tempting fates haS always been the thoron in my side. So long as I avoid, my experience won't be so grima
@DraconianPrinces Just found some tips from kotaku, SPOILER FREE. Here we are
@Ed_Fairway well I Azura you there won't be spoilers on serene's forest and it's a pretty reLynable source for Inigomation.
Okay I was kinda pushing it there, I'm so sorry.
@DraconianPrinces Too many puns... Taking over... Goodbye... It may not have been... My revelation... (I'm so sorry)... As... Winne ~dies~
Nearly day 4 and stils nothing but sun and moon news at least
@DraconianPrinces S-so many puns! I just, I just can't CHROMpete with them. OK that's all I've got it seems...
Also nice choice in characters, I just S-Supported Oboro in my Birthright file. She's wonderful :]
No News Yet on the emblem front. There is however pkmn Sun and Moon news: ROTOM POKEDEX
@Jolt Oboro is an amazing character and I'm glad she's Tailored to many people's likings! I wish I would be able to S support her but sadly that isn't my Fate so I've decided to marry the Tsunammon roll, Takumi, instead! I've heard that he's Severaly lethal to the enemy so I'll deFinnitely have to use him!
Ok, I can NOT compete with those puns at all. You're just too good it seems. But yeah Takumi is really good, he just knocks down enemies on the battlefield... I was hoping to come up with a pun while writing that. Doesn't seem to be the case though @DraconiaPrinces
Any news on this yet?
@Konnordano1615 nupe nothing at all
@Shinzai For goodness sake, impatience is getting to me now
I'm guessing the announcement will be at the end of the week.
@Lin_hyrule Indeed, plus we got E3 in like what? a week and a bit; not only are we getting Zelda, but also POKEMON SUN AND MOON (Still torn between which version and which starters (leaning towards Rowlet or Popplio, how about you guys), and for our cross console fans, there's also PERSONA 5
@Ed_Fairway I'm getting sun version and going for Rowlet
Here's hoping it's announced on Sunday. A WEEK SINCE THE CLOSING DATE
Yep let's hope we finally get an answer today, the suspense is killing me
@Lin_hyrule But it's Sunday... let them rest?
Still nothing huh? Well que sera sera. At the very least it means we all still have the chance of winning.
@Lin_hyrule On the plus side it's introduced alot of people to one of the rarest things on the internet; a clean comment section. Well done nintendolife for introducing yourself to me.
Gg well played Gr8 b8 m8 I r8 8/8
@Shinzai Apologies for being a novice to e-lingo, but pardon?
I'm sure I'm not gonna win, but for some reason I'm still hoping 😂
@Ed_Fairway it's a bunch of random words that have an ate/8 sound at the end e.g skate sk8
@Shinzai Thanks for the clarification
@Lin_hyrule Haha, do you think they've already got their winner, or do we still have a chance?
@Miles_Edgeworth (I know you weren't directing it to me but) they're probably deciding (aka I'm still hoping)
@Lin_hyrule @Shinzai Yeh seems like we're all grasping onto hope xD! I have a feeling they have a winner, but if so why would it take so long for them to tell us?
@Miles_Edgeworth The winner may not have replied yet?
Or, we could say Nintendo Life simply forgot about the competition and will find a winner soon... Hope!
@Sairan_ Yeh that's obviously a possibility, but if so its taking quite a long time for the person to reply, but maybe that's just my impatience xD
@Lin_hyrule Yeh, no matter what has happened, there's still hope! (Well, unless the winners been chosen, but let's hope not 😂)
Hey guys I'm kinda a noob to this😅 (Recently found and joined Nintendo life!) so where will they post the results? In a new article?
Btw good luck to everyone and hopefully we all still have a chance!
@Lin_hyrule Thanks! Fingers crossed and hopefully they'll post something about it soon!
@Lin_hyrule Haha same, we should place bets on how long it'll take for them to announce the winner 😂😂
@OtakuGameArtist Hey mate, welcome to Nintendo Life, good to have you here!
Thanks! This is definitely a cool place to find out about the latest Nintendo games and so far in the comments I haven't found any easily butthurt people yet! 😂 Something you don't see everyday
@OtakuGameArtist I know right. I was quite surprised by the distinct lack of swears and other distasteful word choices.
@everyone question: what other Nintendo games do you like which are like fire emblem?
I quite like the turn-based fighting in FE and I'm a big fan of the fantasy genre (as well as all of the awesome characters lol)
@Lin_hyrule I'm gonna bet Friday 💷. Bring it on!
@OtakuGameArtist Well, which consoles do you have?
@Miles_Edgeworth as well as a Nintendo 3ds, I have a Ps4, an Xbox 360 and a psvita
@OtakuGameArtist While it's not Nintendo, I'd recommend persona 3 for the PSvita or, if you wait a bit, Persona 5. Just look up Persona 5 on youtube, you won't be disappointed, albeit slightly confused on what's going on.
@OtakuGameArtist I'd recommend any Shin Megami Tensei game but if you want something like FE look for devil survivor 2: record breaker . I highly enjoyed it
@Shinzai +1 SMT series
@Lin_hyrule @Ed_Fairway @Shinzai thanks guys! I'll check them all out! I've also heard of a Nintendo game called bravely default which is apparently similar to fire emblem!
@Lin_hyrule How so? if you don't mind me asking
Any news yet for who the winners are?
Could be that they're preparing for E3
Well hopefully we'll find out soon
The suspense is killing me
Anything yet? I thought we might find out today as it's Friday
@Lin_hyrule Yep, hopefully
No don't buy bravery default there is a demo to show you how bad it is!
@Lin_hyrule Well seeing how the demo is easily accessible, why not try it and see whether or not it's worth buying. I myself have tried it, and while I wouldn't call it "bad" per say, more confusing.
@Lin_hyrule I did that in a spelling bee once (as in the only spelling bee I've ever done) and I won... Second place because the judges son was playing.
Good lord that's an actual word?
Still no news?
These guys sure like to wait
Reminds me of when you're watching a show and they're like the winners are.........will be announced after the break
@OtakuGameArtist Yeah, lol. Only problem with that is that the break has been, and still is, way too long!
@Lin_hyrule Oh Lordi YES! When I saw the trailer I was close to tears, mainly of how it reminded me of Nausiica of the vally of the wind. Plus from Pkmn Sun and Moon, I got hints of plot that will hopefully derail from the traditional formula.
I'm guessing that now E3 is over, we might get a winner soon!
It's actually been three weeks since the end of the comp. now...
@Sairan_ I think we will, now that they're all done with E3 they can think about stuff like this and hoepfully give a conclusion as to who has won
Have they mentioned anything about it since the closing of the competition? Or even since E3?
So, who won? I've waited for literally a month now, was this so unpopular because it's only UK based that it was cancelled?
I'm certain they'll announce, eventually, by the time we've all forgotten, so whoever receives the email can go, "oooooooooh, I forgot I entered, how about that"
Anything yet? I'm getting tired of waiting, this is ridiculous
@Konnordano1615 True dat
Hmm, what's going on? @ThomasBW84?
Well, in the efforts to keep spirits up in the comment section; what are you going to call your avatar, and what would they look like, if you look you'll find a link to a kamui customizer. For me, I'd name mine Kannon (partly for the similarity to Kana, and that's the bodhisattva of mercy, which connects well with the buddhist origins of the Yato)
@Ed_Fairway I honestly probably just call mine Kamui as I like the name and it saves the the hassle of thinking of something clever to call the character. Call me boring but hey, thats my choice
@Konnordano1615 Fair enough, that's how I originally did it. I mean, what kind of character in a medieval-esque setting be named Matthew9434
I kinda got tired of waiting so I bought all three games
@Ed_Fairway Yeah, the best example s the legend of zelda as, if I call my character my own name that breaks the emersion for me so I always call link link
@Shinzai now that you've done that you'll end up winning when they announce the winner... NEXT CHRISTMAS when Alex finds the copy from the unboxing he did and realises that the game was for us and not him as a bonus for his e3 coverage
@Konnordano1615 Same here, although as you saw in my earlier comment, I go for a name I think matches my character's "personality". Take twilight princess for example; named my character "Oki" after the character from Okami, mainly because both transform into wolves at will, and Oki's theme sounds like it should be twilight princess.
Still no announcement huh? Well luckily I've kept myself busy. Anyone looking forward for Sun and Moon?
@Ed_Fairway yup I'm team moon and team litten ftw wbu
@Shinzai Same for the first, Popplio for the second; mainly cause I don't give the water types enough love (It's always been fire or grass for all but gen 3, I definitely lieked mudkip). what about nicknames, due to the alchemy references in the game I was thinking of Hohenheim (if it fits), plus I feel like it matches Popplio's personality
@Lin_hyrule Could be a mix of both, think maybe we should remind them this competition exists.
@Lin_hyrule One way is find out how to contact the host, Alex is it? through twitter or facebook, then remind him about it.
Found the link, I just hope people will be courteous when they ask him about the results.
Oy, still no news huh? sigh. Well, I'm sure they have a rational reason for the delay.
Hey everyone, the winner (@ottospooky) was drawn and contacted on 30th May and received the prize on 2nd June. Congratulations James
Sorry that we didn't update this page until now - we've added a new 'And The Winner Is...' section (above) to make things easier in the future!
We always select a winner within a day or so of a competition closing, so if you don't hear from us by then, sorry - you didn't win this time!
@antdickens Well, que sera sera, at least through the competition I discovered Nintendolife, so thank you.
@Ed_Fairway sorry! Our bad for not updating everyone, E3 happened and we kind of forgot as the prize had already been sent out
@antdickens Don't worry about it my friend, like I said, I've found this website, so I ain't complaining
