    Note: Trolls, idiots, smart-asses, and like-minded people will be ignored.

    This is a petition to localize Fire Emblem: Kakusei, the 13th Fire Emblem installment, into North America. The idea is to get enough support that when it's time for this to be localized, NoA can already see the support it has, instead of waiting for a long time to see what will happen or trying to get a petition going almost 2 years after the game was released when the game and/or system it is on is old (not that the 3DS will be old for a while).

    Sign, tell all your friends. We should try to use one petition instead of multiple so we can focus our efforts. Furthermore if someone wants to take this over for me and manage it, I'd appreciate it, since I am not actually all that interested in doing so. Furthermore I'm not really into taking suggestions or doing things a certain way with this so if you really have a strong opinion, find some other way to share it. For me, getting a large number of signatures is good enough...

    Thank you and have a great day.

    Fire Emblem is a game where you control people, and then you kill people, and then you finish the game and it's like "wow!"

    Gahaha, if you make a vague enough description of something it can sound as stupid, boring, or generic as you like XD

    As long as you sign it though, I don't particularly care.

    This one has lots of signatures already. =O
    And it's for Europe as well, so I guess it interests me more.

    They're for completely different games >______________________> Why would I post an FE12 petition on an FE13 petition topic anyway? That's counterintuitive. Furthermore it's hopeless to get that game localized, it's WAY too late, unless they already have plans (which doesn't make sense given how long it's been since the game's been released in Japan--about 18 months I think) I really don't see them localizing it. That's why we're starting the new petition for the new game much earlier--before the game has even come out--so we don't have the same problem as we do now with FE12 where the only hope for a translation lies with fans (funny enough I am part of that fan translation XP).

    The point was, if there was a lot of interest to localize FE12, it would automatically make sense for them localise FE13 (expecting a similar level of consumer interest). The DS isn't dead yet, so a last ditch effort might not be in vain. It's more intuitive, if anything. Besides, all you had to do was say "Oh, by the way, anyone wanting to get behind FE12 localisation, here's another petition". It's also possible localisation began on FE12, but ditched due to lack of funding/resources or whatever. A successful petition could persuade them to finish the project. But, meh.

    I was aware of the translation you're involved in, your involvement in it and your latest post regarding the petition, but I didn't sign it as it would be somewhat fraudulent of me to do so – I'm not a US citizen and have no consumer relationship with Nintendo of America. I did sign the FE12 petition, however.

    日本語を操らせなさい。これは一番確実方法しかいません。(Just learn Japanese , that's the most reliable way ) .
    Or at least that's what I've done . Just 12 months before I couldnt even read a single Japanese word , now I can read a novel just fine . And these things like " Will it ever be localized at all " or " I wish it would be localized " forever vanished from my vocabulary .
    Just face the reality that most Japanese games are heavily Japanese-oriented for their local market , it'd rarely be localized unless it's extremely popular .

    I so signed these, I still have the original Nintendo Power Magazine Guides which were put out for the first GBA Fire Emblem and FE Sacred Stones.

    Back then, the ads contained therein showed just how much Fire Emblem is adored in the Western Countries, including US, Europe and more. I need no localization (per se) just a reasonable translation thank you) The black Tshirt premiums with the (multi red) Fire Emblem Logos made available in exchange for subscription were awesome love to see those again...

    I am an avid chess player, rated about average but I obsess on it daily over morning coffee, it gets my mind in the right direction for the day...and my experience is that FE is a somewhat 3d chess variant (using people) and instead of moves for pieces we have stats/weapons/spells/gear that alter the benefit of a given movement. I only figure their best moves given thier present stats and location, gear etc...
