Nintendo have today revealed the official television commercial for the long awaited thirteenth title in the Fire Emblem videogame series, Fire Emblem: Awakening. Set to be made available via both retail stores and the Nintendo eShop later this week, Fire Emblem: Awakening is the fifth title in the hugely impressive turn-based strategy videogame series to make it into the hands of UK consumers.
The story focuses on the trials of Chrom, the prince of the Halidom of Ylisse, and his companions during a turbulent era. When the neighbouring nation of Plegia starts acting suspiciously, Chrom commands his band of soldiers – the Shepherds – to keep his country at peace. He encounters an unholy force called the Risen plaguing the lands and a masked swordsman claiming to be Marth, the Hero-King of legend and star of previous Fire Emblem titles. Electronic Theatre recently delivered an in-depth review of Fire Emblem: Awakening, stating; “With its brilliant balance of pace, challenge and intrigue, Fire Emblem: Awakening remains just as addictive an experience as its predecessors.”
Fire Emblem: Awakening will be available from 19th April 2013, and launches as one of the most critically acclaimed titles available for the Nintendo 3DS. Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details on Fire Emblem: Awakening and other Nintendo 3DS exclusive titles from Nintendo.
