Fire Emblem Fates is now just days away from release in North America, with 3DS owners facing the choice between two editions (or buying both) of the latest in Intelligent Systems' strategy series.

With the arrival so close Nintendo has published another entry in its 'Life on the Front Lines' series, in this case explaining the key choice to be made in the game and then going into details on teaming up units, building relationships and also outlining some new items and character classes. You can see that below.

In addition the most recent episode of Nintendo Minute may be handy for those yet to decide on a version, as Kit and Krysta talk about both iterations.

Are any of you in North America planning to pick this up on 19th February?
