As the title of the thread suggests. More info on the bundle is to come soon.

Other than the black 3DS, this is the only 3DS that I've seen that's actually visually appealing and coming to the states. That combined with the fact that I'm a pretty big Fire Emblem fan and I just might have to finally break and get a 3DS.

Will buying Day One. Just waiting for someone to announce a pre order.
Already pre ordered the game at Gamestop so I can have the actual game and the pre order book. Game looks so awesome that I don't mind double dipping.

I already have my XL so I'm good but it does look like a sweet system.

I played the demo today. First time I've had any experience with a Fire Emblem game. I like what I could play. I'll probably pick it up for $30ish.

Is this available for preorder anywhere other the Gamestop? Has anyone found it in the Best Buy Kiosk?

It's up on Newegg but I can't find it on the BB website. I'll check the kiosk next time I'm in.

I won't be buying the bundle, but will definately buy the game soon. I have always enjoyed the series, but have never finished a game. It looks and plays great on the demo. Plus, I like the normal setting with the characters returning and the ability to save at any point. Maybe those aren't the "real" way to play Fire Emblem, but will make it an accessible and enjoyable experience for me.

Is there a bonus/incentive for finishing the level/game with the perma-death option?

I will always play perma-death mode since I've been playing Fire Emblem for years, but I like the fact that they included a normal mode to bring in some new players.

And I'll join the list of people who already have a 3DS (XL), but I'll gladly pick up this game on day one.

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.

Picked up the game at Best Buy yesterday and am already loving it. I didn't plan to buy it this soon but just wanted to get that Marth DLC while it's free.

I almost did go for the FE 3DS bundle but I suspect one of the future LE design/colors will end up being even more desirable to be had instead.

How long is the Marth dlc free. I'm having trouble getting into the xl shop right now for some reason

Wondering why I did such a long quote, didn't quote at all, or my post is riddled with typos? 90% of the time I'm on a mobile device and editing and formatting are too time consuming.

Come check out my tradelist. It's full of geeky goodness that's not limited to video games. Includes pen and paper rpgs and more. http://www.cheapassg...hl= sweeetja713
Do you have a Fire Emblem Sacred Stones GBA box if so please pm me. I want it.

Until 3/6. Afterwards, it's $2.50.

You can grind the DLC maps all you want actually :)

I mean before then.
Only 2 of my guys are at Level 5 and the rest of them are not that strong to beat Chapter 4 to get to the DLC yet.

I'm on Chapter 3, and during the talking scenes I just cant stop looking at everyone's leg nubs. It looks like there are supposed to be feet there, but they don't quite render.

Other than that, I'm loving the game. I'm going to try and play without anyone dying, but i'm guessing thats going to be near impossible later on. I've had a couple close calls but amazingly got through by some random luck with enemy attacks missing.

Not being able to repair weapons sucks.

You can repair weapons. You just have to wait.
I found an item called Hammer something that's a staff and can repair one item.
Don't know what I will use it on yet.

I'm totally loving this game.
So far only one married couple and a few close ones like Fred and Sully.
My main guy went from Mage to Sage and I love him. Paired him up with the Trickster girl and they are boss. Chrom is a Great Lord and paired with the War Monk.

So far my favorite 3DS game yet and looks amazing on the 3DS XL.

This game is awesome, best FE game I've ever played.

The repairing item is Hammerne.

Also, my thoughts on Donnel, the best character in the game: http://www.quickmeme.com/meme/3t1lhi/

Finished the game a couple days ago at roughly 45 hours played. I did all the paralogues and other miscellaneous side quests but have not fully developed all the characters stories. Overall, my units were unstoppable as most of the children had OP abilities like Galeforce that demolished enemy troops before they even get an attack off and Armsthrift which allowed my units to keep using grade A weapons without degrading.

The Nintendo Store in Manhattan has some Fire Emblem street pass events on Fridays that I'd like to take part in just to see how my army stands up against others.

Just beat this game also. First Fire Emblem game and loved it. Clocked in over 45 hours too but the 3DS Activity log clocked me at over 55 hours which is more accurate because I played in Classic mode and had some troops die on me several times.

Love this game. Made my team and went to a local Streetpass event and my team beat everyone I play but do not know if people were able to beat me.

Can't wait to go to another and see how my team stacks up.

Does a hard copy of this game include anything that makes it more attractive than just downloading the game?

A map, or even a decent booklet?

Thanks for the details on the Marth DLC in this thread. I wasn't aware of that!

Nope, nothing collectible or manually-interesting with the hard copy version.

Extremely late notice, but for anyone that hasnt downloaded the free DLC map, this is a friendly reminder. I believe it expires tomorrow (the 6th). You have to complete Chapter 4 before the world map will allow you to download DLC.

Right, there is quite a bit of DLC for Fire Emblem
i think the cost of that map is $2.50 or so.
