Nintendo Confirms Fire Emblem: Awakening for America

Reggie accidentally spills the beans after the 3DS presentation.

After last night's 3DS presentation, Fire Emblem: Awakening was accidentally confirmed by Nintendo of America president, Reggie Fils-Aime. While there's been no confirmation that it happened in this manner, the rumor states that during a conversation with Kotaku's Stephen Totilo, Reggie mistakenly confirmed the game for America not realizing it hadn't appeared in the E3 press kit. Regardless of how the news came to fruition, Nintendo of America officially confirmed the title via Twitter shortly thereafter.

"We are excited to confirm a NEW game announcement coming to the US: the new 3DS Fire Emblem! More info to come." - @NintendoAmerica

Fire Emblem: Awakening is already available in Japan and offers minimal improvements on the already sound Fire Emblem gameplay. The title is planned to be the first Nintendo offering with paid DLC, with the content ranging from maps to characters to full episodes. Free DLC will be available in the form of characters via SpotPass.

We'll keep you updated on this now confirmed title for America.

That was one of the most requested games in the chat for the Nintendo presentation. Odd that they didn't at least announce it.

Agreed. This just continues to reinforce my thinking that Nintendo purposely held back this year at E3, as did everyone else. Don't know why, but I'm hoping Nintendo's next media summit really shows off what they have in store.

Everyone is playing it close to the chest except for Microsoft.  They legitmatly have nothing.  I'm betting that Sony and Nintendo are planning to start an independent pissing contest at some point once one party starts announcing games.

Side note, can you tell i'm a little frustrated?
