Without spoiling anything, is there any reward at all for beating the higher difficulties? I'll probably start on hard... though I'm not sure if it's a good idea but eh, I don't want it to be too easy either. But I'd like to try lunatic afterwards if there's any incentive other than just saying I did it.

I don't think anything has been announced so far regarding that. Nothing I've seen or read, at least.

I don't know if it's been said before in here or not, but there is a harder difficulty level, Lunatic Plus, if I recall correctly.

Well I started playing it and so much for wanting to stick with losing units... cause I lost my healer in the second battle No way was I going to just let that slide. But it caught me off guard from the demo cause the leader didn't move in that and I expected the same here. I was wrong

In my demo playthrough, the leader gunned straight for the healer too. She luckily survived with 1 hp, lol.

I'm a bit iffy on doing "lose your units" as well since this would be my first Fire Emblem game, but hey, maybe I'll give it a shot ;p

I thought you weren't buying it? This is my second game so I'm not really experienced... and it does introduce new mechanics that I'm not sure I understand how they work.

With all the rave reviews it's getting, and my desire to still play RPGs, this seems like a good compliment to finishing Ni no Kuni.

Plus there's that whole "zomg it's new I must get it" mentality
Posted: 02/03/13, 23:51:04

Yup, that's how I felt too after beating Ni no Kuni. It's nice to play Fire Emblem which is way more serious in tone (though still humorous... one part seriously had be laughing for a bit) and feel more structured gameplay wise. Not that Ni no Kuni is bad but its combat system could be better

Excited for tomorrow. I will set my 3ds to download the game tomorrow morning before I go to work... It's gonna be a long day while I'm at work all giddy to play this.
Posted: 02/04/13, 01:13:08
Can't wait for tomorrow. I'm so stoked for my new LE 3DS...!

Sucks for those sticking with the retail version.

As it so happens, I spoke with a Nintendo representative this weekend, and he said that the boxed games will be delayed, but the Fire Emblem systems will ship on time.
Posted: 02/04/13, 01:38:37
Yeah I heard the systems are fine from someone else. It is weird though... I wonder if there's some connection between what's going on in the US and then in Canada. I've never seen a game just break the street date, especially not from a retailer like EB and most likely not a game from Nintendo.
Posted: 02/04/13, 01:42:02
Oh snap! I went around to the mom and pop stores today seeing if anyone was breaking street-day but didn't have any luck, I guess I know why!?

Oh well guess I'll be getting this game later in the week, I don't really want the download version... or do I? Damn. As an owner of two 3DSes Nintendo's download policies are a real kick in the balls.
Posted: 02/04/13, 01:42:38

Just download it on your "primary" system. Would you really play the game on two different systems at the same time, IF the option were even available?

Yeah, I carry my black 3DS around with me but leave the XL at home so I'm always switching carts around, plus depending on the game some just look better on the small screen or vice a versa.
Posted: 02/04/13, 01:49:55

Maybe just play the game on the black one?
Posted: 02/04/13, 02:01:22
Yeah, could do, I could also wait in the cart... it's so much more versatile.
Posted: 02/04/13, 02:15:13


Nintendo should just get their collective heads out of their collective butts and activate accounts on 3DS though, honestly. Ah, to dream...
