What happened to the Tharja trophy in Smash? ⊟
Among all the other 100% accurate leaks for Smash Bros. 3DS, a trophy of Fire Emblem: Awakening’s best and most weirdly obsessed mage Tharja was shown… but she’s apparently not in the game.
Nintendo Life speculates that she was removed because her general lack of clothing would affect ratings— something we may have evidence of, since the very source of the leaked trophy images is an ESRB video. That suggests somebody at the ESRB noticed that trophy, at the very least.

I mean, if you can afford it. I know times are tough. But it’s less tough to buy the brilliant Kid Icarus: Uprising right now, thanks to Nintendo’s ongoing Smash Bros. sale. The only downside: discovering Uprising’s multiplayer may make you stop caring about Smash. Other cool deals:

Another Meeting ⊟
Here’s one more Fire Emblem post to wrap up the day. This is the first page from a comic Lavy23 submitted to Fire Emblem Confessions for a contest — you can see the rest of the comic after the break. It’s great stuff!
You can buy a Fire Emblem Falchion ⊟
Just in case you lost the genetic lottery that would have put you in line to inherit one, you can totally just buy a Falchion, as seen in Fire Emblem: Awakening, from HelloKnightmare.
It doesn’t have the extra strength against dragons, and, in fact, is made of wood, but other than that there’s nothing separating this blade from the one wielded by Ylissean royalty.
Lucina, Snake, Mario figures from Wonder Festival ⊟
New toy announcements and pics from Wonder Festival 2014 Summer include Figma Lucina, Nendoroid Solid Snake, and a Nendoroid of that guy in the red shirt who always seems to be hanging out with Luigi.
That alternate head for Solid Snake is fucking my shit all the way up. I cannot handle this. All these via @zerochan!

The biggest reveal from yesterday’s Smash Bros. news ⊟
Lucina’s boot game is too strong, OP even — Sakurai might need to put out a post-release patch and nerf her footwear back into those nubs everyone has in Fire Emblem Awakening. Credit to @Pikminister for noticing this!
The newest Smash Bros. fighter is a Fire Emblem spoiler ⊟
Nintendo unveiled four new playable characters (no, not those four) this morning for Smash Bros., including one returning fighter: Captain Falcon. The other three are Fire Emblem: Awakening's Fake Marth/Lucina and both female and male versions of the SRPG's MyUnit default character Robin.
Even though it’s just a slight discount at Amazon, we make sure to mention whenever Fire Emblem: Awakening gets a discount because it’s that good! Also, we get to dig for and share goofy pic like this pining photo with Chrom, posted by Chamie. Her caption: ”Goodbye mom, goodbye dad, my husband has finally come for me, it’s been fun.”
There’s another 3DS RPG discounted at Amazon right now, too: Shin Megami Tensei IV for $19.99.
I wonder what Tharja has been reading… ⊟
Oh, those are some interesting books. Sorc Booty makes more sense if you’ve seen some of the other angles for Max Factory’s Tharja figure. Figure no Oni has plenty of photos taken from those angles, though I picked this relatively innocent one from their gallery for this post.
Fire Emblem: Awakening & Bravely Default for $32 each ⊟
Another stellar 3DS RPG on sale! Fire Emblem: Awakening is just $31.99 on Amazon right now, while Bravely Default is $31.66. At those prices, you can get two of the best RPGs from the last two years, for the same you’d pay if you bought something butt on a console like Lightning Returns.
Wind Waker Link and more new toys from Wonder Festival ⊟
The Wonder Festival 2014 Winter is going on right now, and it’s not all completely unobtainable garage kits. No, there are previews of things you’ll be able to actually buy! And then get out of the package, put on the shelf, and think “man what am I going to do with this.”
Some gamey things being shown off (thanks to the people whose Tweets I aggregated to find this stuff!) include Solid Snake, Toon Link, and previews of upcoming Figma Zero Suit Samus, A Link Between Worlds Link, and Cordelia (!). Do people like Cordelia that much? I mean, she’s all right, but definitely not in my top… whatever number of Fire Emblem: Awakening characters it takes for me to start forgetting about Fire Emblem characters.
Fire Emblem X Monster Hunter Frontier-G ⊟
The Wii U version of Monster Hunter Frontier-G offers some incentive to check out a second-tier Monhun, in the form of Fire Emblem: Awakening crossover weapons and costumes. Both gunners and swordsmen can wear the Chrom or Lucina armors. Gunners have access to two bows, and sword users can wield a Falchion or Parallel Falchion.
I can only assume that you have to kill and skin a few dozen Chroms to get the armor.
