I haven't played a Fire Emblem title since the GameBoy Advance, but honestly, I believe it's because the franchise's particular brand of strategy is best enjoyed on the go. Fire Emblem: Awakening is bringing the anime-styled tactics title to the 3DS with some pretty high production values.
Seriously, check it out above. There's some high-quality anime cutscenes, but even the maps and battle sequences are looking good on the 3DS. While we're still without a release date, it's nice to want things, so that's exactly what I'm going to do right now as I watch the video above.
