Fire Emblem DS here in December

In Europe before America.

Nintendo has announced that Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon will be out in Europe on 5th December. That's before the US, for once.

Shadow Dragon is a remake of the original NES Fire Emblem, and returns with futuristic features like Wi-Fi multiplayer, where friends can fight and shop and chat.

The RPG also has extra scenarios and difficult levels, plus touch-screen controls, bonkers characters, permanent secondary character death and some of the better additions to the long-running series such as the weapon triangle.

Tom's pumped: "It's an awesome turn-based strategy RPG, because they're all awesome turn-based strategy RPGs," he just said, although it's possible that playing Fracture all afternoon has made him delirious.
