Love is certainly in the air on this special Valentine’s Day as Nintendo of Europe have announced that Fire Emblem: Awakening will finally be getting a ‘date’ with Europe. Get it? Do ya get it? … *cough*.

Fire Emblem Awakening Featured 001 europe

Marth and Chrom are very excited about coming to Europe.

Todays Nintendo Direct revealed that the eagerly anticipated 3DS title will be arriving to European shores on April 19th, 2013. It will also be available to download from the 3DS e-Shop on the same date.

An extra surprising announcement is that there will be a bundle pack featuring a copy of the game and a blue 3DS-XL, which will be exclusive to Europe. It’s also been confirmed that all the DLC will be coming their way too. Nice!

How European.

How European.

So, come April 19th are you going to be ready to fight for your friends?

About David Rawlings

David Rawlings, or ‘Rawky’ as we like to call him, joined the Operation Rainfall Campaign at the beginning. He’s British and found solace with us as he was able to understand our pain about Nintendo and their localizing faux pas. He’s a big fan of the letter ‘U’ and refuses to remove them from words, even though we constantly ask him to. He also believes it’s about time Princess Daisy got kidnapped.

  • Congrats Europe fans!! I’m so happy for you guys!

  • Zelpok

    Usually I’m super happy for European gamers, because you guys get shirked by Nintendo. I’m still happy for you guys, but now I am disappointed with NOA. This is at least the 2nd time Europe gets a XL bundle that would probably sell really well over here (the first is the pikachu bundle). I know that if the FE bundle was an XL here, I would undoubtedly have snatched it up. I saw many other online responses stating the same thing. Does Nintendo think that there is no love for the XL in the States?

  • XypherCode

    Why didn’t NOA bundled an XL instead?! 🙁
    Anyway congrats to Europeans again.

  • FX102A

    Is the game a digital copy like in the US or a physical copy?

  • Charlotte Buckingham

    So pumped for this! 😀 I was hoping we’d get the bundle, and now we are! ^^

    YEEEESSSSSS!!!!! This was so worth waiting for. I said I wouldn’t get the Xl until FE came out and now they’re doing it with a whole colour and design and all(which tbh looks 1000x better than the regular 3DS design). Love you Ninty.
