I haven’t seen many (if any) discounts for this game since it released three months ago, so a $5-off sale seems like a big deal! I doubt there are many people who own a 3DS but don’t have this yet, though…
Fire Emblem: Awakening’s latest DLC release Summer Scramble lets players see a selection of characters in their swimwear, but in the case of Tharja, Nintendo of America decided it didn’t want to show too much of the Dark Mage.
Meanwhile in Japan, Nintendo has no problems with allowing licensees to create these lewd Tharja figures. At least the company didn’t edit this out, which is what everyone really wanted from the Summer Scramble DLC:
Donnel, you overpowered idiot
Fire Emblem: Awakening is out in Europe this week! Celebrate with links:
- @AwakeningBot - tweets support, story, and battle dialogue from the game
- Cordelia tries to get preachy, but Sumia dgaf
- Perfect Sumia cosplay, minus the feet of course
- Gaius hilarity
- The amazebutts OST set - “Marth” spoilers
- Msilt posted the Donnel pics above
If you are in Europe, I suggest picking up Fire Emblem: Awakening. It is pretty decent if you are into Japanese video games and Japanimation.
Fire Emblem x Etrian Odyssey x Soul Hackers
We’ve yet to see anything substantial for Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblem, but here’s some fun Atlus crossover fanart I came across this morning. First we have Chrom clashing with an Etrian Odyssey Landnsknecht, drawn by Tora Plu. And after that is another Etrian Odyssey mash-up, this time with Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers, from 怪奇( ﾟдﾟ )くろ男.
It’s turning into a very Etrian Odyssey day… Maybe a sign that I need to bounce back into EOIV and try to plow through that six hours of progress I lost after forgetting to save.
PREORDER Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers, upcoming games
Fire Emblem: Awakening art director Toshiyuki Kusakihara explains why nobody has feet, in 8-4’s developer interview.
This totally destroys my theory about the ending, in which Chrom and My Unit discover a plot to magically steal everyone’s feet to sacrifice them to the fell dragon Grima.
“You’re too late, Prince,” the final boss laughs cruelly atop a mountain of feet. “I’ve had your feet all along!” Chrom looks down, then looks back up resolutely, pointing his sword.
“Unhand my feet,” he growls, then the climactic battle begins.
Sketches of Fire Emblem: Awakening promo/packaging art
Two related things to read during your lunch break today:
- FE: Awakening character designer Yusuke Kozaki answered some questions on Reddit
- Localization team 8-4 conducted an Iwata Asks-style interview with several developers from Intelligent Systems
The latter item has a lot of great stuff, like the images we’ve shared above!
Fantastic Lucina pencils/watercolor art by Jenninaitsu
Is it okay to talk about/identify this character yet? Everyone’s already played the game, right? And it’s not like we all weren’t spoiled about her whole deal forever ago.
Anyway, this is a great companion piece to the last amazing Jenninaitsu piece we featured.
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.
