The Fire Emblem: Awakening 3DS bundle may see US shores

Non-XL, sadly

[Update: Nintendo of America has confirmed the bundle for the US and Canada.]

Many moons ago, Japan got a limited edition Fire Emblem: Awakening 3DS system bundle, and man, is it sexy looking. Well, if you don’t live in Japan and wanted to pick this one up, rumor has it that the bundle is hitting America due to a leaked Game Informer ad.

Given Nintendo’s history with 3DS bundles, the game will most likely come pre-installed, but nothing is confirmed yet.

Sadly, this bundle features the OG 3DS, which means I won’t be getting it. In fact, I probably wouldn’t recommend the non-XL to any new adopters, as I could never go back to my original after experiencing the XL.

As for the game itself, I wasn’t kidding when I said I was excited for the latest Fire Emblem game last February — the anticipating is killing me. Be sure and check out our latest preview, and join me in my excitement!
