Fire Emblem: Awakening's character editor, which you'll use to create one of two protagonists in the upcoming 3DS game — the other hero is Kingdom of Iris prince Krom, the blue-haired, Lord-class chap we’ve shown before.
Your custom character crossing Krom’s path is a critical part of the story, according to this text published by Japanese magazine Jump and posted by Andriasang:
"Two sleeping dragons — one a sacred ally of mankind, the other its sworn destroyer. Two heroes marked with symbols of the dragons. Their meeting heralds the dragons’ awakening — and the world’s ending."
Basically it’s the video game version of 2Pac and Snoop Dogg’s "2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted". Like, “Ahh shit, you done fucked up now. You done put two of America’s most wanted in the same motherfuckin’ place at the same motherfuckin’ time?”
That’s exactly what this is, guys. Fire Emblem: Awakening is nothing but a gangsta party.
