|HERE'S MY MONEY! HERE'S MY ENTIRE SAVINGS JUST SO I CAN PLAY YOU!|
Now you may not know this about me... But I'm A HUGE Fire Emblem fan. Have been since Blazing Blade. In fact, my longest and most in depth review I've done yet has been my review of Fire Emblem: Awakening, which is still one of my favorite FE games. So a new Fire Emblem game to me is like pumping happiness straight into my brain. And the fact that this is the game they choose to start OFF the presentation with just shows how high the Fire Emblem series has been elevated in the eyes of Nintendo. But then again with how well Awakening sold EVERYWHERE it's kind of hard not to expect the red carpet now.
As for the game, they called it a "teaser" but let's be honest, it's a full blown trailer. Not only does the downright GORGEOUS cinematic cutscenes from Awakening return, but also mechanics such as Duel Strike and Guard as well as new flourishes to the displays and graphics. Awakening was made without full knowledge of what the 3DS can do, but that's no longer the case with this game. While mechanics like Children Characters remain to be seen if they return (though I have no idea how they would do it in a way that isn't a rehash of either Awakening or Genealogy of the Holy War), I have no doubt this will be one of the most anticipated games on the 3DS.
Speaking of Fire Emblem, Intelligent System's other game Codename: S.T.E.A.M. (A Steampunk SRPG that's a cross of Sakura Wars and The Amazing Screw-On Head) will be Amiibo compatible. The figures that are compatible are the Smash Bros figures Marth, Ike, and the upcoming Robin and Lucina. So all of the Fire Emblem characters...... What do they do? THIS:

Anyway, I just wanted to nerd out about Fire Emblem. This was one of the best directs I've seen just for these two bits of news, in my opinion. The only thing that would have made it better is any news about Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem. Any news.... PLEASE TELL ME THIS GAME IS STILL BEING MADE!
Until next time.
