New gameplay details for the upcoming Fire Emblem 3DS game due for release in Japan in April, have been announced.
The game is going under the title of “Fire Emblem: Awakening”. The subtitle of Awakening relates to a big plot point.
In the game there is two dragons, one a protector of mankind and one a more evil and deadly dragon which would happily kill off mankind. Our hero is Krom and he is thought to be one of two heroes which carry a mark of the dragons, if the two heroes were to meet the dragons will awaken, leaving the way open for the end of the world. And of course, in a true epic story style, the two will meet.
The other main character is made by you, their gender, facial features and everything else is fully in your control. Which is a very nice touch when you will spend so much of the game around said character.
And lastly, it has been confirmed that Free Maps are making a return from past games and the new Duel system has also been confirmed and explained. When standing close to an ally and entering battle the ally will also take part, which of course is very helpful when facing strong foes.
The game is due for release on the Nintendo 3DS on the 19th of April.
