Get the Fire Emblem 3DS XL look for your system
Yeah, the Fire Emblem: Awakening special edition 3DS XL is exclusive to Europe, but you can put together a reasonable facsimile with a blue 3DS XL and one of these decals from Etsy user GameThemedThings. Or you can put it on a different colored 3DS XL! Or get the decal in black. Or put it on a non-3DS thing. Or get one that fits on a standard 3DS.
This is… way more versatile than importing a Euro 3DS XL.
It’s also $10! That leaves you plenty of money to buy gifts for the special fellow/lady/transforming rabbit person in your party.
This frickin’ guy never quits
People are trying to just wind down after a long day of battles in Fire Emblem: Awakening, eating bear meat and maybe flirting with party members, but ol’ Creeper McCreepertime needs to step in and make everything awkward.
More fun sketches of cutscenes and support convos (some have spoilers) at this new Tumblr: Ramblings of a Tactician.
People seem captivated by the Tharja figure
They’re not only making fanart based on the Max Factory toy unveiled two weeks ago (the illustration is from Yasabata); they’re photoshopping the gray sample model to get an early idea of what the painted version will look like.
Also, I’m surprised at how vulgar this figure looks when viewed from another angle (NSFW shot hidden past the break). I didn’t think Nintendo would allow its licensees to sell products based on its characters that look like this:
Upcoming Fire Emblem: Awakening DLC
This clip starts off reviewing the downloadable content that’s already released for Fire Emblem: Awakening, but it also covers upcoming map packs and their rewards (including new classes like the Dread Fighter and Bride).
That EXPonential Growth map would’ve helped a lot in my efforts last weekend to give my Fire Emblem children a better life. Kids these days (or during the days in some far off future) have it so easy.
Kids today (or is it tomorrow?)
Inigo, do you have any idea what kind of sacrifices I made to ensure that you would have a comfortable life? That you would go to a good school, and have all the opportunities your parents never had?
I spent more hours over the weekend than I care to admit grinding so that you wouldn’t face the same hardships we did growing up. Your poor mother worked two full-time jobs just to make sure you would have Galeforce.
And what have you done with all that potential? :: sigh ::
Why can’t you be more like Lucina? She listened to her parents and studied hard, and now she has a job doing computer and makes a lot of money.
Once again, this frickin’ guy
Nobody believes you, Old Hubba. Quit creepin’ up these DLC missions.
Have you opened up your wallets to Fire Emblem: Awakening's DLC? I haven't yet (just living vicariously through Tumblr posts like Modern Octopus’), but I might soon after hearing that you can make hella in-game cash in the recently released Golden Gaffe.
Europe’s Fire Emblem: Awakening 3DS XL bundle
Even though Europe will receive Fire Emblem: Awakening a couple months later than North America, the region scored this nice exclusive. The rest of us are stuck with standard 3DS bundles, but Europe gets a 3DS XL limited edition bundle when the game releases on April 19. Awakening will also have slightly different boxart and a better looking logo in Europe (Kellam still gets snubbed, though).
Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate will also have special Wii U (32 GB) and 3DS XL bundles in Europe — the former will include a black console and a black Wii U Pro Controller, while the latter will offer a black 3DS XL. The Circle Pad Pro will also launch there on the same day.
Fire Emblem: Awakening V-day cards
Now that we’ve all calmed down from today’s Animal Crossing: New Leaf news (nope, not really, all lies), let’s enjoy these Valentine’s Day cards posted by Nintendo of America on its 3DS Facebook page. The Emmeryn card is my favorite, despite the missing comma breaking my heart.
Even though Fire Emblem: Awakening is the perfect game to play for the holiday (if you’ve no sweetheart and don’t mind the companionship of Old Hubba), please make some time to try out Fangamer’s new and free Windows/Mac release Sweet 33. It’s a Mother/Earthbound-inspired love sim, and it’s amazing!
Fire Emblem, Animal Crossing figures on the way
Spotted at this weekend’s Wonder Festival show at Japan was this 1/8-scale figure of Fire Emblem: Awakening's hex-happy Tharja, which will be produced by Max Factory.
Max Factory also has a “Marth” Figma figure in the works, and GSC showed off this Nendoroid for Animal Crossing: New Leaf's secretary Shizue.
Fire Emblem: Awakening's most pitiful character
I rarely call up Kellam from my bench (forgot he was even available, to be honest), but the knight has some super morose lines when you do select him for anything.
It’s hilarious that the jokes about Kellam always going unnoticed carried over to the game’s packaging and promotional art — he’s the only character with his face covered in the crowd. Maybe the artist didn’t even know he was back there?
New round of Fire Emblem: Awakening DLC out
Fire Emblem: Awakening's first paid downloadable content is now available at your local Outrealm Gate, dubbed Champions of Yore 2 and featuring series favorite Roy.
You can pay $2.50 for the map, or spend $4 to buy the Champions Pack. The latter contains the first and currently free map, Champions of Yore 2, and the third not-yet released chapter with Micaiah.
The fantastic artwork above of “Marth,” by the way, comes from Poiv.
You might have heard there are shipping issues with Fire Emblem: Awakening
Some retailers haven’t received their copies yet, and a number of people are upset about having to wait a day or two to get their hands on it. I guess a lot of fans were anticipating this release? Who knew.
