Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon

The Famicom/NES original is finally making its way to American shores with a fresh coat of paint and a bevy of new features.



Though Fire Emblem has more recently become a staple of Nintendo's American lineup, the series was exclusive to Japan for a total of six titles before making its way to western shores. Shadow Dragon, the latest title in the series is actually a recreation of the Famicom original from Intelligent Systems.
Starring the popular character Marth who was first introduced to the west through Super Smash Bros. Melee, Shadow Dragon follows the story of the young prince who is on a quest to save the kingdom of Archanea. The once defeated evil Shadow Dragon, Medeus has been revived by the sorcerer Gharnef, and together they have attacked and seized Archanea. Marth along with a group of followers fight the tyrannical rule in an attempt to restore the peace that prospered after the initial destruction of Medeus.
The classic tactical RPG gameplay will return in Shadow Dragon, with players able to use the DS touch screen to more effectively manage all of the characters in their team during battle. First time players will also be able to enjoy Fire Emblem's revered gameplay by playing through the brand new tutorial levels. The tutorial levels will also be of interest to seasoned players as they shed further light on Marth and his quest. The game will also feature a more robust save system to allow for more frequent saves to fit the portable nature of the game as well as six varying difficulty levels.
Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon will also have strong integration with Nintendo WiFi Connection, including the ability to chat with friends using the DS microphone, battle friends online with your trained team, buy items from the constantly changing online store with your in-game currency, and borrow units to use in battles with the new Loan Unit feature.
Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon is due for release in the US early next year.
