Thought I'd finally get around to start posting in this thread, so here goes.
I'm an avid fan of the Fire Emblem games, I've currently played all of 6-12, (6 and 12 only halfway though).
I can't play Awakening yet due to living in Europe, meh.
Excited as heck to start playing Awakening, but that will have to wait 2-3 months.
Currently playing through Fe6, 11 and 12. (Chapter 16x/3-5(2nd playthrough)/Chapter 10 respectively).
Okay so I've always loved the Fire Emblem franchise. But I've not got a 3ds.
Sooo I'm currently considering getting the Fire Emblem Bundle. From what I gather here - http://www.officialnintendomagazine....3ds-xl-bundle/
Us guys in the Uk are getting a 3DS XL version instead of just the regular 3DS if I'm understanding that right, which is great because that's the one I want.
Has anybody living in a country where it's already out had any experience with the bundle?
I'm really tempted to get it. It seems almost too perfect to be true for me (I love blue!). The bundle is priced at £220 while a regular 3DSXL is £160 and the game around £32, so I won't be doing my wallet favour.

- Do you think it's worth the extra bucks to get a cooler looking 3DS than everyone else?
- Do you like Fire Emblem? (You are so that's a pro, right?)
- Do you like games in the style of FE8/FE12? (Multiple promotion paths, My Unit creation) If you do, this game should rock for you.
- Do you intend on buying the 3DS just for Fire Emblem or are you planning to get other games aswell? (Would be a waste to just buy it only to play 1 game on it, you might aswell rent it from someone else for a while).
Don't have experience with the game itself but it looks like it's gonna be a badass game with trainees, my unit, more promotions, extra maps and ALL THAT GOOD STUFF.
TL;DR - Buy it, your life depends on it, your body is ready etc.
However I don't really want to just give into the hype so I'm not entirely sure.
Although just to add something about the product that I only just noticed, the 3DS XL Bundle in the UK appears to used the standard blue finish rather than the cobalt finish of the US version, which I'm not sure is a pro or con as I might prefer it being black inside.
I'm still rather skeptical over this though as I'm still considering just getting myself and regular 3DS XL and the stand alone game to save myself some cash. LE versions are great but I'm not sure if the extra £30 really validates the stamp on it.....

You UKers are weird. At least in Sweden, it's a win-win situation to get the Fire Emblem bundle. Seperately, I guess they'd be at about 2'400 SEK, while the Fire Emblem Bundle is currently at 2'090 SEK. But I guess it varies from shop to shop in every single country. Not getting a physical copy might also be a drawback for some people, but as far as I've understood, you can redownload the game in case something goes awry. :x
I'll admit that the 3DS honestly looks ugly. Why couldn't the entire thing be blue or black instead of blue and black? The colours clash so much! D:
Though admittedly, I'm just happy we finally have a tangible date where I'll be destroying my wallet, woo!
I had considered upgrading to an XL for some time, the drawback for me is the lack of a second thumbpad for lefthanded play support still.
Also while I don't really hate anyone, I hate all you guys playing this already while I twiddle my thumbs for another month.
I'm actually hoping the XL won't release in the U.S. anytime soon, already have my 3DS FE edition all ZAGGed up.
Maybe it's because the price hasn't been finalised considering it was only unveiled 3 days ago? But if it saved money I'd buy it in a heart beat.
However it's currently only £200 off GAME, so I can see the price dropping on the Amazon one.
Price comparing across other sites has gotten some decent results. 3DS XL's seem to go from £160 to £175 for some of the popular colours, which going by that seems to indicate a minimum loss of £7 for buying the bundle, which actually makes it seem rather appealing now. So currently my plan is to just order it off of Amazon and perhaps cancel the order if the price doesn't drop, which it will because I know Amazon are always slow to update prices but they always wind up being cheaper than GAME .

Woo, one less day to go!
Have any Europeans planned how their units will marry yet? Or how to build My Unit/The Avatar? Or any other plans?
Because <3 Pink hair.
MyUnit is probably going to be either silver hair or blue, dunno yet.
Gonna marry Chrom with frail pegasus knight, and MyUnit's son with Red-haired pegasus knight's daughter (too lazy to look up the names).
I stopped thinking about it a while ago cause it just made me desire the game even more...
I think the thing that's really holding me from buying is simply that I'm a little bummed out with how little they actually did with the EU version. The Cobalt colour looks better the decal is better with those corners. I'm also not sure simply because I'm a fan of physical copies of games.
I may just be tempted to buy the standard blue/black and the game instead, although maybe I'm being silly. I hate this dumb decision .
Severa is a Mercenary! The cooler half of sword-wielding classes! Heresy! asdhasjkgh
And Male MU can look so very shota too. :x

And we'll have to agree to disagree. Admittedly, you could make her a Myrmidon with the proper father :x
