    I can't wait for it. Wasn't a huge fan of previous Fire Emblems (only really played them on GBA) but I think that was mostly a presentation problem... this game looks great.

    I'm nuts about Fire Emblem. I played pretty much all of them and even rom hacked one of the gba games. I must have this game.

    I thought it was boring and there's pretty much no 3D effect at all.

    Nothing against you finding it boring, but the 3D effect is pretty good and definitely there. Are you blind.

    Can't wait to spend an hour in one battle before one of my most useless units dies, but I still feel compelled to restart from scratch. NO MAN LEFT BEHIND.

    Compare it to other games, and it's definitely weak, Zelda, Professor Layton, Kingdom Hearts and Virtues Last Reward all had better 3D. It's pretty bland in this game.

    Also don't take my word of it being boring seriously. I've never played a Fire Emblem game before and not the biggest fan of strategy type games.

    Well, I think it's pretty good. It does what it needs to; adds depth and distinction on the battle map. I only had time to play the first map of the demo and enjoyed it. I think I'll like this type of game more than SRPGs like FFT.

    I just got the demo and played it. I love it but I'll get a copy once the price drops to $30 because I'm such a cheap bastard.

    I believe it's $30 if you preorder at Fry's, if you have one near you..

    It's a nice deal if you're nearby, shipping and taxes will put the cost near $40 for me though.

    Loved the demo here, calmed all my worries. Day one pre-order/buy.

    Still wishing the Console bundle came with a physical copy, otherwise I'd get it.

    I think I'll preorder this just for the artbook. I want digital copies more, but I'm intrigued with collecting cases again, like in the day of yonder where I kept all my SNES boxes and junk.

    I've played all previous versions of Fire Emblem on GBA, (as well as the GBA translation) and the two on the DS (S.D. & Translation) = 5 total) and really enjoyed the demo. It leaves out some of the best benifits of this game though... I thought the 3ds (sterio-scopic effect) was pretty significant. I especially liked the first person view you got in fights when you touched th eyeball icon to switch views in the actual cutscene battle. It gave it a Skyrim/Oblivion effect to the battle.I tried it on each difficulty level, and saw additional options (marriage etc...) to each one I chose as other characters came into play with greater difficulty levels. I really laughed when on the hard level that guy got kickecd in what I can only assume was his family jewels, when he proposed. LOL can't wait.

    Demo was short, but it was good. Never got into the series, so this isn't Day 1 for me. And I cannot take Marth seriously with those sunglasses.

    I tried the demo, here's my opinion:

    The game's graphics surprised me. But, maybe because I don't have any graphics focused game, yet. :P Graphics looks like later ps2/gamecube games which is nice but probably not the 3DS full potential. It still is better than the average 3DS game.

    Cut-scenes are absolutely gorgeous, It looks like it's real time graphics and not simply video playbacks, but I can't say for sure.

    3D effect is very nice, imo. The title screen alone shows that they weren't afraid to make things pop out and they were able to abuse the 3D effect without creating artifacts. Of course, the game doesn't actually give you the option to explore the scenario. Except for the cutscenes, the camera is fixed the entire time and characters only move in predictable ways, so maybe that's why they are able to do such nice 3D effects without generating duplicate images.

    For the gameplay itself, I only played in easy mode, so I might be misjudging but I found it to be not that extraordinary. Maybe I'm more of a Final Fantasy Tactics guy, but there wasn't a single situation where I had to use any more complex strategy then attack, hide and heal. The lack of special attacks in the demo are also quite dissapointing. Only fair to say, although the graphics of the game are good, the actual part when you play the game is pretty poor graphically, consisting of a simple map and simple character models. I still think they could use FFT-like graphics for the battle map:glare:

    I wish we had the demo here, maybe we'll have it in about a month. I've waited this long...
