Beautiful in blue

Yesterday we reported that a demo for the highly anticipated strategic RPG Fire Emblem: Awakening will be made available to download from the North American 3DS eShop on 17th January. The game itself will launch on 4th February and will be available in both physical and downloadable forms.

According to various sources, including NeoGAF, a special Fire Emblem: Awakening 3DS bundle is on the way to North America too. The image circulating appears to be taken from an advertisement found in Game Informer magazine. It shows the bundle that was released in Japan and features a special edition original 3DS — not an XL. It's unclear at the moment whether or not the game will be pre-installed on the system — in the same way previous bundles have been — or if it will come with a physical copy.

What are your thoughts on this beautiful special edition 3DS? Would you like to see it made available in North America?
