Fans of Nintendo's Fire Emblem strategy RPG series had almost given up any hope of a localization announcement for Fire Emblem: Awakening (translated title) on the 3DS when any mention of the game was missing from both Nintendo's official E3 press kit as well as the hour-long 3DS software showcase held earlier this evening.
That was until Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime himself "accidentally" revealed his company's intention to bring the 3DS title to North America to reporters after the show. With the word loose, Nintendo sees no reason to keep anything secret anymore regarding Fire Emblem for the 3DS. Here's their Twitter announcement:
We are excited to confirm a NEW game announcement coming to the US: the new 3DS Fire Emblem! More info to come.
Stay tuned for the official details then.
