The graphics on the 3Ds have also been getting better, grainy games like Asphalt that came out at launch and some of the Mario games with N64 type jaggy graphics did not impress me but Fire emblem and some of the other games have much better graphics than these games. Fire emblem is not grainy, pixelated or jaggy at all. The 3DS does best with cartoony type graphics but I suspect most games on the platform will use this style at least the ones I am interested in.

I had to go to two gamestops...sigh. I had one reserved, but he wrote my name on the box. As a collector...I politely refused. I had to take my chances at another gamestop, which they held it for me and understood what exactly I was buying it for. Stacked it with a coupon and was out the door. Feel bad for the next person to get that box for collection...

Oh geez, that's horrible as I hate stickers much less writing, on my boxes. Fortunately, my GS's aren't that stupid, they use sticky notes when I call in to hold stuff.

Only counter I can make is the PSP's heavy catalog of JRPG's, PS 1 classics, AC: Liberation, Persona 4 Golden, Gravity Rush, Uncharted, and the non-bugged version of Virtue's Last Reward.

I hear it's easier to lure in little children with a 3DS compared to a Vita. Can you confirm?

Have you played Persona 4 Golden? I don't own a Vita, but I've definitely been tempted to buy 1 just to play that game.

Im not sure how different Golden is from the one on PS2 but if you really wanted to play it could just get a ps2 and P4 no?

If the Vita would play my UMD collection, I would have that as nothing interests me on 3DS except for Fire Emblem & Mario and the 3D in the 3DS makes my head hurt.

Pre-orders at newegg.com for the bundle are in the packaging stage now. Looks like they finally got their first wave of Fire Emblem stuff in. :)

Okay, discussion is turning to 3DS vs. Vita instead of Fire Emblem...Time to lock up this thread, it's served its purpose.

Same here. Every GameStop around me has 1 bundle available. And it looks like they're for sale too, not just pre-orders being held.
<p>Here's to a great year of gaming in 2015 :beer:

Man, I take it you guys haven't heard the news, but it looks like Nintendo of Europe is going to release a Fire Emblem Limited Edition 3DS XL. And according to a source, it's going to have that Fire Emblem logo on it.

Can you show me where in that source it states what the Fire Emblem console will look like?

Oh you're going by this:

Additionally, the captivating world of Fire Emblem: Awakening for Nintendo 3DS is about to open up for European fans. In celebration, the Nintendo 3DS XL Limited Edition Pack with Fire Emblem: Awakening pre-installed, which includes an exclusive blue Nintendo 3DS XL console with Fire Emblem art imprinted on the console itself, will be arriving in shops alongside the release of the standalone game from 19th April.

Not really confirmation that it will be the same except XL. Also doesn't help many people in the U.S. that want a functional XL as they are region locked.

If you watch Nintendo Direct's EU stream, they show the 3DS Fire Emblem XL.

Yea the stream today showed the Fire Emblem XL for Europe. What irks me is that nice looking Black XL for Monster Hunter. I'm a monster hunter fan. I'm a black console kinda person. Right up my alley. Time to shut this here thread down and get a Monster Hunter one going.

Europe only though, and region locked. :-(

Finally got my copy in yesterday. Going to start it up and get the free DLC map tonight. But I will probably wait to play it.

How is a used copy considered mint?


Well, to be fair, Gamestop sells lots of used games as "new"... :).

Also, Texas represent.

Yeah, I'm currently at work so I couldn't provide a picture asap until some news source provided it. Either way, the 3DS XL doesn't look as good as the 3DS version since it's lacking those design borders in my opinion.
