Fire Emblem: Awakening

While reports of stores breaking street dates for video game releases is nothing new, who would have thought an official date would be broken legally. It certainly is a rare occurrence. Well, it seems EBGames Canada reported on their twitter that it will be getting the shipment for Fire Emblem: Awakening today and will start selling the game online and at retail stores immediately. This comes one week before the game is supposed to be sold in North America.

So if you live in Canada and want to order now or have no problems calling up your nearest store to see if they have it in, go for it!

  • Dang it. I don’t live in Canada. Ah well, I was going to download it anyway.

  • Lightthrower

    Best Buy said they’d sell it early too, ordered online from them 😀 (5$ rebate from them too)

  • Though so far it seems we are not getting the 3DS Bundle. 🙁

    • The bundle got announced for America about 3/4 weeks before the American release. So, I reckon we’ll be hearing about it in mid to late March or maybe early April.

    • No I mean Canada, we received the game early, because I think we’re not getting the bundle.
      The game’s released but we have yet to see the bundle, hell asking at all local game stores, none of them had info about the 3DS Bundle.
      I’ve even been told by EB Games that the bundle was exclusive to the states.

  • …And Europe have to wait years ;~~; Alright not quite years but that’s how it feels. Been waiting so long for a new Fire Emblem :(((
