The most devoted fans have been waiting to hear this news since it was first unveiled in Japan during the first ever Nintendo Direct. The past few months have been an absolute roller coaster, as the wait for news grew more and more intense with each day, especially during E3.

And to be honest, if it weren’t for certain events tonight, we’d still be waiting.

… But it’s been confirmed! Fire Emblem: Awakening WILL see a release outside of Japan!


  • Big News!

  • While it’s nothing truly official, we can only pray at this point after the horrible 3DS showing Nintendo had at E3 this year.

  • Thank YHVH, I got so scared for a bit. Why didn’t they say it in the press conference? 

  • Thank the lord! RPG/Strategy for the 3DS!

  • I hope this is true. I’m a huge fan of FE and would hate to see it not come here anymore.

  •  Holy shit, I hope beyond hope that this is true.

  • We need to pressure Nintendo into letting us have the Fire Emblem 3DS bundle that Japan is getting.

    • yes!! i held off from buying a 3DS in hopes that maybe there is a chance that bundle will come to us

    It’s true. Reggie said it himself people. Multiple reports.

    Thank Christ! But really, why the hell was this not announced at the 3DS conference? How are people supposed to know if you don’t tell them! This E3 for Nintendo has been simply ridiculous, in the bad kind of way. I guess I should just shut the hell up and be happy that Awakening is indeed coming, but it’s very frustrating to know that Nintendo is willfully withholding information like this for no logical reason. Now is the time to announce this stuff, you know, on stage! NOA better get it’s shit together soon, or I’m getting a PS3 by the end of the year. A good place for it to start in making amends would be to announce Pandora’s Tower for North America. Sorry for bitching folks, especially on a page about good news. For me, this and The Last Story being announced have been the best video game news all year. I hope to God we get a 2012 release like Europe.

    • Nintendo doesn’t give a damn about E3, the conference means next to nothing to them, they have Nintendo Direct now and their own mini conferences to announce information, there is absolutely no reason for them to announce games at E3…

  • Wooooot!  Fire Emblem: Awakening is finally coming!

  • I’m glad this game was finally confirmed for a North American release. I know a few friends that will be really happy with this news. 😛

  • Heres Nintendo of Americas most recent tweet announcing it!/NintendoAmerica 

  • An Tran

    HOORAY! Though guess that means I’ll have to import FE12.

  • Can’t believe it, can’t believe it, 
    can’t believe it, 
    can’t believe it, CAN’T BELIEVE IT. This is one of the games I bought a 3DS for, and I really can’t wait until Nintendo releases it!

    Non-specific action figure approves!

  • finally some good news

  • A big presentation would have been nice but finally fire emblem is coming to North America. Thank you Reggie for screwing up.

  • I love me some Fire Emblem.
