Paper-Rock-Scissors Tactics Spring To Life In Fire Emblem 3DS

This spring in Japan the swords, axes, and spears of Fire Emblem spring forth from the 3DS screen to pierce your eyeballs with varying degrees of severity depending on which sort of weapon you're holding at the time. Check out the live stream of the game from the Nintendo Direct presser.

One of the first 3DS games to support downloadable content looks like it's coming with a pleasing combination of 2D travel and 3D battles packed right in. Will it be formulaic? Dude, Fire Emblem is the very definition of formulaic. It wouldn't be Fire Emblem otherwise.

It's the same old game with a few new lines of code and sharp visuals. Sometimes that's all you really need.

    Tell that to the XCOM and Syndicate developers

    Same old game??? From just the trailer it looks heaps different to previous FE games both mechanically and visually.
    Ah, finally a reason to get a 3ds...

    Keep in mind that to someone who plays Fire Emblem a lot looks at Skyrim, they will say the same thing about that compared to Oblivion. All a matter of perspective.
