This blacksmith made Chrom's sword from Fire Emblem

I've always wanted arms like a blacksmith. Not weaponry. I'm talking those sinewy anchor arms and mallet fists that would have you coughing up blood with a few quick pummels. Yet, they're delicate and expert enough to emboss...

Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem for 'different' audience

Fire Emblem: Awakening opened to phenomenal reception both critically and commercially, and if early reviews are anything to go by, Shin Megami Tensei IV will follow suit. Naturally, this seems like the perfect opportunity to...

Register SMT IV and Fire Emblem and get $30 eShop credit photo
Register SMT IV and Fire Emblem and get $30 eShop credit
by Dale North

Niiiiiiiiice! When I caught early word of this deal I just grinned. What a wonderful way to get two of the best role-playing games I've played in a long time in the hands of more gamers.

Here's how it works: Register both upcoming Atlus RPG Shin Megami Tensei IV and the brilliant strategy RPG Fire Emblem: Awakening on your Club Nintendo account and get a $30 credit to use in Nintendo's eShop for the 3DS. Both retail and digital purchases of either game are eligible, too. So if you already have Fire Emblem Awakening (you should!), know that you're in for a free $30 credit when you pick up SMT IV. How freakin' awesome is that?

This deal begins on July 16 and runs through August 31. 

So if you were on the fence about Shin Megami Tensei IV, get off. This game is amazing. And if you think about it, you're getting the game, a collectible case, a strategy book, a CD, and a bonus $30 to spend.

Come back tomorrow morning for our full Shin Megami Tensei IV review. A preview? It's fantastic.

Sanshee brings new game-themed shirts to Anime Expo

Awakening was almost the last Fire Emblem game

Fire Emblem: Awakening surprised just about everyone with its critical and commercial success. In Japan, the 3DS strategy RPG had sold over 400K units through June 2012, and it's likely continued to grow since then. In the US...

This Fire Emblem scene was too hot for North America

Nintendo has done a fantastic job supporting Fire Emblem: Awakening so far, with new DLC dropping so frequently it's hard to make time for it all. However it was yesterday's map release that caught the eye of NeoGAF board mem...

Fire Emblem: Awakening rolling out SpotPass freebies photo
Fire Emblem: Awakening rolling out SpotPass freebies
by Jordan Devore

Be sure the SpotPass feature is enabled for Fire Emblem: Awakening, as the game will be getting new (free!) content all throughout spring. Up first is "A Hard Miracle," a map available now that has a mysterious woman and some obligatory kidnapped villagers. That certainly sounds like Fire Emblem, anyway.

The downloadable maps pick back up on March 28 with "Ghost of Blade," followed by "The Wellspring of Trust" on April 11, and finally, "The Radiant Hero" on April 25. Nintendo says that more special weapons, characters, and bonus challenges for Awakening's Double Duel multiplayer are also in the pipeline as freebies via SpotPass.

Thanks for the reminder that I really, really need to pick this game up. I've been slacking.
