Fire Emblem Fates launching Feb 19 for 3DS

Fire Emblem Fates hits shelves tomorrow where fans can choose between Birthright and Conquest separately, or opt for picking up a special edition bundle(preorders are currently sold out.) Fire Emblem fans might also be tempted to purchase the Fire Emblem themed New Nintendo 3DS XL, but please note that the games are not included.

Many fans are probably already familiar with Corrin, the protagonist of Fates. Earlier this year, Corrin has been introduced as a DLC fighter in the Super Smash Bros. Series. Similiarly to the character in Super Smash Bros, you can customize Corrin to be either male or female. When starting Fates, you will be caught in the middle between the faction that raised you, Nohr in Conquest, or the family of your actual blood lineage, Hoshido of Birthright. Sorry fans who want it both ways, there is no right answer and the other side will battle against you.

Fates has different difficulty settings with “Classic” adding a layer of realism where characters who fall in battle are gone forever. Casual mode takes things lighter where fallen comrades will return after the end of each battle. Phoenix mode are for beginnings where lost allies return immediately in the next turn.

Fans who plays one game can buy the second at a discount, and then look forward to Revelation, a game that explores what happens when you remain neutral. I encourage you to check out the late President of Nintendo, Satoru Iwata’s interview regarding Fire Emblem Fates.

Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright and Conquest launch on February 19, with fans able to purchase it digitally as soon as the clock strikes 12. Nintendo New York, formerly Nintendo World Store, will have the Fire Emblem Special Edition in stock and will celebrate it’s grand re-opening at the same time.
