can't imagine a small initial print run on a game that is hyped with a demo, bundle, and now a commercial.

i'm definitely going to be sad if i can't use my gamestop credit to get this game on release though.


Yeah Nintendo is really pushing this game considering how small it is compared to things like mario. Sorta like what they did for kid icarus.

And its on track to be the most successful fire emblem. Already sold 487K in japan(third best showing for fire emblem in Japan) and it has made 35 million in revenue from sales and DLC as of sepetember 30th. With worldwide sales it will become the first million selling fire emblem(fire emblem always sells more copies in America then in Japan with the sole exception of shadow dragon and there was a very small gap between the two)

yes, sad isn't it?

Awakening's success is the final nail in the coffin for Fire Emblem being a strategy series

Wii U, you're our only hope now, keep tanking, keep tanking so that Iwata will get forced out.....

Damn it, I haven't been able to make it down because I had the flu. Was gonna go today.

Interesting side-note, I called Gamestop to confirm, and the guy looked it up and said its release date is the 30th...

I will just buy it off amazon if I want it at or near release. I have noticed for a while now though that Amazon has a message about potential manufacture shipping delays if you order. I guess this game really is going to sell very well, either that or they went with a really low print run not realizing the larger demand.

Glad to see that it looks to be successful. Really pissed that Nintendo didnt realize that it would be and under produced.

Wasnt able to get my order in (Was planning to when I picked up Ni No Kuni). About to just order a copy at Best Buy just in case its rare. The guys at Gamestop said they would keep a look out for me too (Whether they get an extra, or the pre-orders come back)

Yeah, I rode the city transit to the mall to return Resident Evil 6 and pre-order FEA, but they said they just stopped taking orders this morning. Oh well, now I'm just stuck with a fantastic co-op game, so it works either way for me.
