....Anyone wants to talk about that here? Personally, I'd just go to Seres Forest for all sorts of analysis and whatnot. They've even got some of the calculations done.
Speaking for myself, I feel kind of mixed. I'm mostly positive and am glad that we're getting three versions (I'll see if I can get the special edition; 9250 yen isn't a lot for me to spend on Fire Emblem), as I think this is a good way to close the gap between several things: traditional story versus a more dramatic one, and having a world map versus not. It's almost like the Fun/Glory distinction in Smash. I also like how they're getting this game different in all kinds of aspects, from the obvious ones like the eastern atmosphere to parts that get the FE loyalist (and computer scientist) in me a bit uneasy, like the new weapon system, typeface and divisions by three in calculations. And looks like there'll be no time travel this time, which is good. To me, that would just kill off any seriousness of the story.
The best part, for me, has to be how each part of the game is approximately Awakening-big. Does that mean both branches plus the future DLC (which, by the way, will still be cheaper than the special edition) will be almost three Awakenings in scale? Should be good enough to keep my 3DS busy for a while.
Seriously though, I really did enjoy yesterdays trailer. The big thing for me is that it seems like Kozaki has really upped his game on the design front. All the characters we've seen so far look much better than the cast of Awakening in my opinion.
Last night Intelligent Systems had a broadcast for Fire Emblem Cipher, the new TCG game launching alongside Fire Emblem if. In that broadcast they revealed two new facts about FEif.
First off, the mysterious dancer is named Aqua.
Secondly, like with Awakening there will be DLC characters, except this time they can be downloaded with a code included with the cards packages. So far they've revealed that Marth, Lucina, and Minerva will be DLC characters.
