Shortly after revealing Mario Tennis 3DS, Nintendo showed a
few seconds of footage from another popular series we too frequently forget
exists: Fire Emblem. The new game looks much like the others, with 2D tactical
combat on a grid-based map, but this time, it’s going to pop out of the screen
in 3D. Well, we assume, we don’t technically have confirmation on that point.
What we do know is that it’s going to be an original game, and it will supposedly be out on 2012—at least in
Japan. It’s also going to feature two-play cooperative play, though we’re not
exactly sure how that will work. Beyond that we don’t have much beyond the
brief footage they showed. Hopefully our team on the show floor at Tokyo Game
Show will be able to gather more information, though we wouldn’t be all that
surprised if the footage we got is all we’ll see for a few months.
