    I might buy this game, I played the one that came with the Ambassador program and my best character died and I got stuck on the next chapter, had to restart the game D:

    Recently got into RTS, so I'm looking forward to this. With the new features and casual mode, its a lot easier for new players.

    I played the Remake of the Original and I had kept turning of my DS so that they wouldn't die. Glad this gives you the option to let them not die forever.

    I need a while.

    I'll definitely pre-order this game, though I wish there was also an artbook bundle. NA reviewers have been going gaga for this game and so have I so I'm looking forward to the european impressions (even if the reviews are rubbish I'll still be getting this). It's strange because three month ago I wasn't interested in the series; now I'm drooling over it. Thank goodness for the 3ds ambassador event for allowing me to try something new (or maybe is a bad thing since now I have too many games on my wishlist).

    More than any of the other limited editions, this is tempting. Is it bad though, that upon reading the description and looking at the image, my first thought was 'That's not a falchion'... I'm a pedant I know.

    I BADLY want the 3DS, but there's my car I have to pay Ł500 for, plus so many games I want, not to mention lessons and the test itself... I think I need a raise :P EDIT: Someone made a good point that Fire Emblem for the GC and Wii should come on one disk, and upgraded, and since Ike is my fave Fire Emblem character (due to SSBB to honest, I am also a new Fire Emblem fan, I bet Nintendo are loving this!) I'd love to see this point also. Petition time me thinks! ;)

    I am way too hyped for this game. WHY CAN'T IT BE OUT HERE AS WELL AS AMERICA?!?!

    how wonderful, i'd love it if they did a special edition version of the game as well.

    Nice for people who haven't got a XL,but I'll just be going for the game.

    Any pre order bonus for people that already have a 3ds, such as an art book like the one the US got???
