Quadruple post? No one interested in this anymore? Huge update coming up. Nintendo of America released more information.

Quote from: My Nintendo News
Nintendo of America has revealed new information about Fire Emblem Awakening, launching exclusively for Nintendo 3DS on Feb. 4. The story of Fire Emblem Awakening begins in the kingdom of Ylisse and centers on Lord Chrom, the brother of Ylisses Holy Ruler. Chrom leads the Shepherds, a band of soldiers who defend the borders of Ylisse from Plegian bandits. Players create a custom avatar and play as Chroms right-hand man who is deeply ingrained in the main storyline. In addition to an immersive storyline, Fire Emblem Awakening keeps the adventure going with StreetPass and SpotPass functionality, as well as downloadable content available for purchase. Newly revealed information includes the following:

Downloadable Content: Maps will be available to purchase and download starting on launch day, and others will be distributed regularly. The first downloadable map will be available for free for a limited time only and will serve as an introduction to the steady weekly stream of additional maps. The additional maps will be offered at different price points. Players with a copy of Fire Emblem Awakening and a broadband Internet connection will be able to access the downloadable content through the Outrealm Gate located on the in-game world map, which will be unlocked after the player completes the fifth mission in the main story mode. The content will include additional information about new class types, skills, playable characters, maps with new storylines and special maps that let players earn more experience points, gold or other rare items.

SpotPass: In addition to content that can be purchased from within the game, Nintendo will also distribute new content via SpotPass for free. SpotPass content will be distributed in the launch time frame and will feature new maps with new storylines, characters and items.

StreetPass: Fire Emblem Awakening players can set up a StreetPass Team and exchange certain game data with other players. The StreetPass Team is made up of 10 units from an existing team in story mode. Players can also edit team names and create custom messages for other players to see. StreetPass characters will randomly appear on the world map, giving players the option to recruit the team leader with gold, buy any weapons or items the team is carrying or battle and win to recruit the leader for free. Like the random battles in the main story mode, the player will have full control of battles in StreetPass mode. Players will also earn renown based on battles won. A players renown is visible to other players through StreetPass.

Fans can also try out Fire Emblem Awakening prior to launch by downloading the free demo available in the Nintendo eShop. The demo will be available on Jan. 17. When the game launches on Feb. 4, shoppers can purchase the packaged game as usual at retail locations nationwide. Or they can simply purchase and download the game on their own from the Nintendo eShop using a wireless broadband connection. Regardless of their purchasing method, the game sells for a suggested retail price of $39.99.

Fire Emblem: Awakening will feature a lot of content, DLC, SpotPass, StreetPass, and more. There will also be a demo of this game, coming Thursday, January 17, 2013.

Lastly, Nintendo of America also announced the Fire Emblem: Awakening 3DS Bundle coming as well, on Monday, February 4, 2013.

Not that some are not interested, it's just that there's not really much info out until now.

I also just got an email telling about the demo as well on Jan. 17th.

But wow, does this game look really good now! I think I might be getting this game around the time it comes out...
(The custom character sounds like the best part for me - that is if they do what I hope they do with it :P)

...you know, I now remember reading somewhere in an older Nintendo Power Magazine about a new Fire Emblem for the 3DS coming out in Japan... perhap this was that game they were talking about?
Of course, they say that was a remake... so I'm guessing this is probably a remake of one of those games...

This is an original game. Your probably thinking of Fire Emblem: Shin Monshō no Nazo: Hikari to Kage no Eiyū, which is a remake for the DS that never made it's way to NA.

Probably right there.
I never saw much similarities from the images they provided at that time anyways, and I don't even think a 3DS was out yet.

Why was I thinking this way? :P

Just pre-ordered this game. Looks exciting so far and very much willing to try out the game for the first time in the series (and something totally different).

The digital version of this game will take up 8,579 blocks of space. Also, the bundle will run you $200. It also has the 4GB SD Card in it.
