Are you as excited about Fire Emblem Awakening as we are?  If so, you might want to check out this exclusive bundle for all of you fans of the classic strategy RPG series.  


On February 4, Future Shop will be offering an exclusive Nintendo 3DS bundle that has Awakening pre-installed on the hardware (check out the pretty little thing above).  This royal blue handheld features a beautiful Fire Emblem insignia and a 4GB SD memory card so you'll hardly have to worry about running out of space.  

Awakening is the latest game in the popular fantasy-based strategy RPG series, and the first to be released on the 3DS.  As usual, this instalment lets 
you command your army and protect the land you call home, but this time in an expansive 3D world last seen on the Wii's Radiant Dawn. There will also be plenty of downloadable content available if you want to go all out with customizing your intricate team of allies.   This will actually be the first time we'll get to experience this graphical boost on a handheld so I think you can imagine why so many are anticipating this release. 


The Fire Emblem bundle will be selling for $199.99, which is actually quite the steal for a 3DS, game ($40 value) and a memory card that's 2GBs bigger than the standard.  Plus, you've got to admit, this 3DS looks really, really cool.  If you don't already own the handheld or are looking for an upgrade this might be just what you're looking for.  

If you'd like to see what all the fuss is about, there's currently a demo available for Awakening on the Nintendo eShop.  Otherwise, stay tuned for my preview of the game next week!  


Fire Emblem Awakening (Rated T for Teen, 13 and up) is developed by Intelligent Systems and published by Nintendo.  If you'd like to learn more about the game or the bundle, or are interested in pre-ordering it, check out these Future Shop product pages!
