Fire Emblem: Awakening’s Japanese boxart. Eric mentioned this in the last post, but we have a better image now, and this so deserves its own post.
That logo! Those colors! That art! This is seriously, seriously, seriously making me want to play a Fire Emblem game, even though my only aptitude for strategy RPGs a mastery of the strategy of avoiding them forever. Now that’s effective graphic design.

Watch some dudes get rocked in this new Fire Emblem: Awakening video — along with the usual combat and special attack stuff, this system overview trailer also shows off class changes with one of the game’s characters.

Really appreciating the wealth of media Nintendo is putting out for this game leading up to its Japanese release in a few weeks — more opportunities for us in North America to pray for a U.S. announcement, and admire these characters wearing armor that looks ripped straight out King Arthur & the Knights of Justice.

And since I brought up King Arthur & the Knights of Justice, I’m obligated to link this wonderful thing.

An intro to Fire Emblem: Awakening’s 40+ classes, including a few new ones for the series like the Strategist, the Dark Knight, and the Taguel bunny/girl hybrid. Here’s some new commercials/combat footage, too.

When this releases in Japan next week, the game will have a downloadable content pack (free until the end of May, and then it’s ¥300, or $3.70) that includes the series’ popular hero Marth, who you can add to your party.

It’s a bit odd, because the videos shown so far already features a very Marth-like masked villain. Like, I don’t think anyone thinks that’s not Marth. We’ve even taken to calling him Narth around the Tiny Cartridge office.

Nintendo of America Register Fire Emblem Domain, Hopes For NA Release
For those of you who pay attention to the best selling Fire Emblem series, it has been hauntingly quiet in regards to Awakening. The game is seeing widespread success in Japan already, and Nintendo of Europe quickly registered as much as it could regarding the game and announced it everywhere it could. Nintendo of America has been startlingly quiet on the subject of bringing it to American shores. Now, however, it’s been found that Nintendo of America has registered the domain name fireemblemawakening.com, igniting some hope that the game sees American release.
Considering Fire Emblem is one of Nintendo’s main franchises and they used The Sacred Stones as a game available for the 3DS Ambassador program, one would certainly hope Nintendo was smart enough to bring the SRPG over to North America.

New Fire Emblem: Awakening screens up in this piece

l hated myself for doing this, but as soon as I saw that screenshot of the new blue-haired antagonist, I started singing in my head, “Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy. I’m a mystery villain, you may call me Marth-y.”

Maybe I don’t deserve Fire Emblem: Awakening.
