I plan to buy both this FE 3DS bundle and a hard copy of the game to show my love and support for such a great franchise. It has been confirmed that this game will offer dual-audio language option (English & orig. Japanese voices), so I am super excited now. I would personally wait for a special edition XL ... the regular sized 3DS works fine if you intend to just play 3DS games with it.


no dual text language?:cry:
still don't want to spend $$$$$ to get the imported japanese bundle

As pumped as I was for this bundle I think I'm going to pass now. It definitely looks sweet but I want an XL. I considered buying this and getting an XL later but I decided against it. I'll probably change my mind again and again though so who knows.

i don't know how it is in the USA market place but Japanese LE 3DS doesn't go up that high...maybe because they got so many freaking Limited Edition versions...but most are still around 300-350ish, while Miku Vita is 600ish....

Just a heads up/reminder for anyone interested: the demo for the game is out in the eshop today. I'm playing it right now and enjoying it so far. Can't wait to have the full game.

The Gamestop listing now shows that the art book is being included with preorders for the console bundle too.

I'll take it there's no free shipping code for consoles online? At least, I couldn't find any.

I checked out their shipping prices and they're pretty cheap to be honest. 1-Day Shipping costs $9.99 which is a huge bargain compared to other sites. It does however state that it'll take one business day to process though.

I just wanted to throw in my 2 cents about how this game doesn't look nearly as bad as most other 3DS games on the XL. The game actually looks quite beautiful on a 3DS XL.

Having said that, I'm still going to get the console and the physical game. :)

As far as brightness goes, I think the XL's just feels more vibrant to me. As far as hue goes, mine had a yellow hue for like the first week or two but it was only noticeable on white screens. (It went away after a bit of playtime)

I just got my 3DS XL in the mail and was fiddling around with how FUTURE it is to me (having used a DS Lite for years); I'm pretty sure that orange-yellow tint is from the power-saving mode in brightness that lowers the brightness/color temperature of the screen, similar to f.lux for computers.

If it was an XL, then I would have ordered this in a heartbeat. I actually think it was a very smart move on Nintendo's part to keep it a regular 3DS from a money making perspective though. The manufacturing process should be nearly identical as the Japanese one and they can easily move some original 3DS at a premium.

*sigh*

Two books is cool. I'll just get an XL when Pokemon comes out and they release a 3DS XL then.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

I've been holding out in hopes that it'll pop up at Best Buy or even another store, but I'm about to just go with Gamestop if nothing new develops by tomorrow. Can't miss out.

I'm assuming he/she wants a physical copy, as well. That's what I'm doing, since I'm a rabid Fire Emblem fan.

Nope not power saving. Lots of people had that gripe around launch, apparently it had something to do with the glue or something used in the top screen not being fully dry yet. I'm pretty sure Nintendo even commented on it at some point saying it wasnt an issue.

I got around to playing the demo and damn was it good! Can't wait to play my first FE game!

Even though I love the look of this 3DS I still think I'll prefer getting the purple 3DS and a Physical copy of FE.

If anyone is looking for a more complete artbook of the game, there was one released in Japan as shown here. The artbook is a whopping 319 pages and includes information & characters from the DLC as well.

I'm hoping that Nintendo will see fit to release it in the US ala Hyrule Historia, but tracking this down in its original Japanese form just might be essential (Cheap Ass or not!)

I think it's overpriced, especially since all bundled games come preloaded now. The Zelda bundle was not preloaded apparently. The Mario bundles this holiday season were the same price as the regular 3DS giving people an incentive to buy that over the regular. If this was $169 it would have been better. If it included the full hard copy game with case again I would have no problem. You also lose your digital games if your system gets stolen, lost or broken. Looks like the 3DS is on sale at BB soon for $150 and there is the black system on clearance at Sears for $150 if you can't find the red one for $99. With the $150 price you could buy the system and the physical game for less than the bundle provided you do not have to have the special edition system.

It's personal preference but I think the blue color is hideous and ugly and I wouldn't want a system in that color regardless, this just looks like the blue system with a decal slapped on it though I haven't seen an up close image yet or an image of the real system.

Up at Newegg; shipping is $8.26 and you can't use ShopRunner on preorders, but if you're in a state that Newegg doesn't charge tax to it's probably cheaper than GameStop (although you wouldn't get the artbook). Can't use Bill Me Later or PayPal on preorders, either.

I wonder if that means Best Buy could end up with it, too. I could use Newegg and avoid paying tax, but I went with a local Gamestop store instead (thanks to the artbook + not having to pay/wait for shipping - not to mention it was the only place with the bundle listed at the time, i.e. this morning).

It helps that one of the few employees I like (he's helped me out with a few orders in the past, and once let me exchange my disc-only online copy of the Zelda Collection for a complete one in-store) was there today and evidently moved to that store. You see, if the employees are actually friendly and go out of their way to help me out even when they aren't required to, I'm more inclined to throw my money at them (take notes, Gamestop!).

I pretty much agree with the color. I don't exactly think its ugly, but I would prefer something with a bit of a different color, which is why I think I'm gonna get the purple 3DS and a physical copy of FE. Blue kinda feels to basic for SE. I don't know why this came to me, but a rustic/burnt orange 3DS would've looked epic with the dragon and sword emblem.

Yeah a special edition system deserves a special color, I know the Zelda system was only black but it looked great with the gold accents. I would also like to see the white/black 3DS in the USA. A lot more people would buy It if it was a different color than just a standard one. Also they need to make a Gold 3DS!

The Fire Emblem 3DS is not a standard color, it's cobalt blue. The standard 3DS color was Aqua Blue. It's darker and way better looking. It's a shame it's $200 I would of gotten it if it was lower.

You have got to be one of the most cynical people to post here on CAG. Most of your posts are composed of you complaing about one thing or another, and as in this case, usually over something unfounded or trivial.

Anyways, contrary to these two detractors, I think the color is very nice looking and very original. Here is an unboxing of the Japanese version that shows just how nice (and different) the blue looks on this particular version.
