Fire Emblem 3DS bundle set for US gamers
Looks like gaming companies are finally taking notice at the lack of unique and catchy 3DS consoles. Formerly a Japan-only offering, the Fire Emblem: Awakening 3DS bundle will soon be available to US gamers for $199.99.
The special bundle includes:
- the dragon-emblazed limited edition Nintendo 3Ds console
- A 4GB SDcard
- a copy of Fire Emblem: Awakening which comes pre-installed
Unfortunately for those hoping for a 3DS XL version, this is the regularly sized one and if you haven’t made a jump on the Nintendo’s 3DS line, it might be a cheaper alternative to get a standalone console and the game itself. The downside of course is that you don’t get this limited edition console :).

Jan. 14, 2013
When Fire Emblem Awakening launches on Feb. 4, it will arrive with a special version of the Nintendo 3DS hardware. The beautiful blue system is emblazoned with stylish Fire Emblem artwork, has the game pre-installed on the hardware and comes packaged with a 4GB SD memory card. It will be available at a suggested retail price of $199.99, a great value for fans of the series.
Fire Emblem Awakening is the first entry in the fantasy turn-based strategy series on Nintendo 3DS. It tells the story of Lord Chrom and his growing army of companions as they band together to save the world from a rising evil. Fire Emblem Awakening features a gorgeous art style and voice acting, plus an epic storyline with a massive lineup of memorable characters with unique personalities. As with past entries in the series, every decision the player makes is vital, as characters lost in battle are gone forever. A demo of Fire Emblem Awakening will be available in the Nintendo eShop on Jan. 17.
Starting on launch day, additional maps will be available to purchase and download. The first downloadable map will be free for a limited time and will be followed by additional maps on a weekly basis. Players with a copy of Fire Emblem Awakening and a broadband Internet connection will be able to access the downloadable content through the in-game world map.
