Fire Emblem

The Fire Emblem series has managed to become successful in the West only recently, with Nintendo deciding to localize the GameBoy Advance entries of the series following the popularity of Roy and Marth. Not all of these games have been translated in English, unfortunately, and one of the GBA games exclusive to Japan is going to be released on the Wii U eShop next week.

Earlier today Nintendo has confirmed that Fire Emblem: Fuin No Tsurugi, commonly known in the West as Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade, is going to be released on the Japanese Wii U eShop on September 2nd. The game will be available for purchase for the price of 902 yen.

As stated above, Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade has never been localized so chances are slim for a release on the North American and European Wii U eShops. Considering the series currently popularity, however, the Japanese company may end up doing what they did with the original Mother a few months ago and release the game in English for the first time on the Wii U eShop. We will keep you updated on the matter as soon as possible.

Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade plays not too differently from other classic entries of the Fire Emblem series. The game, set before the events of Fire Emblem: Rekka no Ken, takes place on the content of Elibe, a continent split into six different nations. Following the successful invasion of the kingdoms of Ilia and Sacae by the king of Bern, Roy is forced to return home and take control of the Lycia’s army in order to prevent King Zephiel to conquer the Kingdom. Being the direct prequel of Fire Emblem: Rekka no Ken, Fire Emblem: Binding Blade features a lot of characters from the game in their younger forms as well as others tied to Rekka no Ken’s characters

Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade will be released on the Japanese Wii U eShop next week, on September 2nd. There are currently no news on a possible Western release of the game, but we will let you know more about it as soon as more comes in.

Critics and fans alike went crazy for Amazon’s take on the famous role-playing game series Fallout. There were a lot of nominations for 16 Emmy awards, including Best Actor and Outstanding Drama Series. The show was able to reach audiences outside of gamers and got a lot of attention from the industry.

Eurogamer has been keeping track, and now that all the votes are in, Fallout is tied for fifth place with 23 nominations for the 76th Emmy Awards, which are put on by the US Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. With 25, The Bear has the most nominations, followed by True Detective: Night Country with 23, and Shogun with 19.

It shouldn’t be a surprise that Walton Goggins is up for Best Actor for his performance as The Ghoul. Although games will always be our first choice, it’s great that adaptations of games don’t have to be awful, and we can’t wait for the next season of the shows.

Are you surprised by how well Amazon’s version of Fallout has done in the mainstream? Is the curse of movies based on video games finally over? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Ten million people play The First Descendant in its first week

The free-to-play shooter The First Descendant has gotten a lot of attention in its first week. The game’s publisher, Nexon, says that 10 million people have already tried it out.

Insider Gaming pointed out that since there is no cost up front, it’s still too early to tell how many of those players will stick around, but it’s still a big number for a new IP. On Steam alone, it peaked at 264,860 concurrents right after launch and has still managed to break 200,000 in the last 24 hours, so it looks like a lot of people are still really into the game.

It was a “mindless and repetitive grind,” and we gave The First Descendant a 3/10 in our review. Of course, that’s just one opinion; other experts have had different ones. Most people, though, say that the game’s annoying free-to-play model is the worst thing about it.

Are you one of the millions of people who played The First Descendant last week? Are you going to come back for more? Leave a comment below and let us know.
