Fire Emblem bonus bonanza

Nintendo are chucking in a soundtrack CD for the first people to pick it up in Japan.

Fire Emblem will appear on GameCube for the first time on April 20 - but only in Japan, obviously - and those first in the queue will receive a bonus CD and calendar.

The CD features five songs from the soundtrack, entitled The Theme of Fire Emblem, His Father's Son, Move Out!, Quiet Days and Ike's Resolution. We're hoping the last one means we can expect to see either David or Turner in the game, but we could be disappointed.

The calendar includes pictures from all of the Fire Emblem games, as well as assorted dates, months and days of the week.

A US launch is set to follow in November this year, but there's still no word as to when Fire Emblem will get a European release.
