New Fire Emblem Awakening trailer showcases marriage and dual battles

Take your children into battle

Birth, life, marriage and death. It's all in the new Fire Emblem 3DS game. Yes, just as in Harvest Moon games, you can get married and have children in Nintendo's new strategy game.

The most significant thing about this is that you can recruit your own children to fight on your side. If you have the perma-deaths switched on, this could add an extra level of emotion when your offspring die in battle.

Speaking during the latest Iwata Asks interview, Nintendo's Genki Yokota said that love is one of the major themes in the game. However, this isn't the first time a Fire Emblem game has featured marriage and producer Hitoshi Yamagami admitted that he was influenced by the marriage elements in the Japanese-only Super Famicom game Fire Emblem Seisen no Keifu.

In Fire Emblem Awakening, you can marry any of your allies as well as your My Unit characters. Special visuals have been created for marriage proposals.

Fire Emblem Awekening will be released for 3DS in the UK in 2012.
