We are excited to confirm a NEW game announcement coming to the US: the new 3DS Fire Emblem! More info to come.It's not like Fire Emblem is a big franchise to Nintendo or anything. Nope. Nobody hardcore gives a damn about this relatively niche title that sold poorly in Japan.
It should also be noted that the news didn't even originally come from Nintendo. Rich from IGN tweeted the following after the conference;
Reggie just confirmed to us that Fire Emblem Awakening is coming to the United States.It wasn't until after Rich tweeted his tweet that Nintendo decided to confirm the rumors. So yes, Nintendo wasn't even the first to break this news that had the potential to actually make their conference interesting.
Good on ya, Nintendo.
