After the stealth announcement of Fire Emblem: Awakening's North American release, we haven't seen too much from Nintendo about the hotly-anticipated 3DS strategy-RPG.
Yesterday's Nintendo Direct gave plenty of reason for holiday cheer (or post-holiday cheer, as the case may be), revealing Fire Emblem: Awakening's release date as February 4, 2013. I always love it when companies realize that there are more than three months in a year in which they can release video games.
Watching the Lord of the Rings trilogy in preparation for The Hobbit has really put me in a large-scale fantasy/medieval battle mood, so let's hope that holds until the game comes out. If you (somehow) need further motivation to be pumped for this title, be sure to check out the game's slick trailer!
Will you be strapping on your armor and fighting through Fire Emblem: Awakening?
