Fire Emblem: Awakening Out April 19

News 3DS RPG Strategy Nintendo

Fire Emblem 3DS has been officially named Fire Emblem: Kakusei (Awakening) and also has an official Japanese release date of April 19 2012, revealed in today’s Nintendo Direct conference held by Nintendo CEO Satori Iwata. It was also revealed that the game will feature very popular elements which were implemented in previous Fire Emblem games. In a video shown during the conference, the two particular elements shown were the free map system and the skills system. It had also touched upon customisation of the kingdom’s army.

Iwata, however, did not mention the paid downloadable content that was revealed by Nikkei earlier today. Iwata may have wanted to keep the details for a later date, including content and pricing. The video also included fantastic battle animation and two-on-one battles. With a release date on April 19, Fire Emblem: Awakening should see a release in English later in that month or early May.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
