The very first Fire Emblem game has been remade for the DS in Japan. How the crap did I not know about this? Well, no matter. I know now. And now I can wait in agony while they decide to never send it over to the US.
The Fire Emblem series is one of my favorite game series. It's what got me interested in tactical/strategy games. I'm seriously a freak for these games. I have all the ones that have come out in the US, and have played through them multiple times. The first Fire Emblem game to hit stateside is actually the 7th in the series. It was a prequel to the previous game in the series, and stars Eliwood, Hector and Lyndis. If you've played Super Smash Bros. Melee or Brawl, you'll recognize Marth from the first and third games, Roy from the The Binding Blade, and Ike from Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn.
Since Fire Emblem for the GBA, they've been sending them over to America (mostly due to the popularity of Marth in the Smash Bros. games), so I hope they'll send this one along, too. I'd love to play the older games in the series, and since this one is a remake, that hopefully means they made the game more smooth (by doing things like highlighting a unit's movement range, and adding in the weapon triangle). From the screen shots and what-not, it looks like they have.
Please send the game over the ocean, Nintendo! I'll definitely buy one. I'll really enjoy it back on a hand held system. The console versions certainly have their advantages, but the game feels more at home on a portable.
