Personally think it looks very nice, although i'm not sure i like it more than the Jap boxart. Either way, they both look good Nah nah!

Its pretty much the same artwork with some elements repositioned, the english logo is a lot better too.

I was just entering the topic to say that I think the PAL boxart is rubbish. Doesn't have the same impact as, say, Advance Wars: Dark Conflict's boxart (which itself wasn't exactly brilliant).

I-i....i....what? Seriously, i don't even...

Still tossing up whether to get the 3DS XL or not. It looks like crud, but it IS still a FE one and i do need a 3DS XL...

I still can't decide whether I prefer the XL over the original 3DS, to be honest. Not having to squint at the screen is a major plus, but I seem to have more problems with the 3D sweet-spot on the larger screen.

I've pretty much watched a whole playthrough of this on YouTube and honestly, it looks like a must-buy. It's certainly the best Fire Emblem in a long time, the story's pretty decent for Fire Emblem standards and the hardest difficulty seems like a real hardcore challenge for die-hard FE fans.

There seems to be a 3DS Fire Emblem Letter Box Stationery doing the rounds.

Who uses letter box anymore? It will be even more redundant once Flipnote 3d arrives as well. Razz

Looking forwards to this but I don't see this happening in the immediate future, I'm playing through Path of Radiance at the moment though anyway so I'm still getting my fix.

Though I know it'll make me want to cry and hurl my 3DS under a passing car, I'll be downloading the demo tonight. Nintendo dedication at its worst.

Played the demo the other day, the gameplay & strategy is great but the story (if ye can call it that) really is terrible.

Amnesia? Really? I found the tutorial a bit patronising too.

The story is a little hokey, but it's pretty decent for Fire Emblem standards. Don't let the demo dissuade you.

Oh I enjoyed the core gameplay so I will be getting it, I'll just be mashing the A button to skip the text.

You can normally skip sections with B and the whole thing with start too, so if you really hate the story it's easy to hide from it.

I'd recommend giving it a chance though Jas, the prologue of this is hokey, sure, but it opens up to become a much richer story as you advance. Although if you really can't get into it, follow Andy's advice.

Amnesia is a staple of Eastern RPG type games stories, otherwise it might as well just be Call of Duty.

I like the art styles. All three of them. Particularly how the 2D sprites are set at odds with the 3D battlefields. I also like the cutscene artwork, which is very smooth, and reminds me of Valkyria Chronicles.

And that's about it. Though I appreciate that people go mental for this game, I sense that (like Advance Wars) it will completely overwhelm me once things start to heat up.

Also: it really irritates me when voiced games get bored outside of cutscenes and you get the odd line thrown in there, amidst a sea of grunts and 'Oh yeah's.
