– His class is Tactician, which is his first class in the original game
– He will fight by using a magic book
– Chrom’s sister, and also the princess of the halidom of Ylisse
– She has a bright and innocent personality suitable for her age, and she always encourages her friends
– Her first class in the original game was a Cleric which could heal allies’ HP, but in this game, she wields an axe and fights on the frontlines by herself
– Just like War Clerics in Fire Emblem Awakening, she also excels in close-range combat while being a healer
Nintendo says New 3DS’ discontinuation in Japan has no impact on America

Earlier today, we learned that the New 3DS has come to an end in Japan. Nintendo is discontinuing the system, though the New 3DS XL will continue to be sold.
In a statement, Nintendo told GamesIndustry that the news has no impact on America since “the model in question was only sold in limited quantities as special offerings.”
Nintendo of America says:
“This announcement does not affect Nintendo of America territories, as the model in question was only sold in limited quantities as special offerings. There are no changes to the sales status of New Nintendo 3DS XL, Nintendo 2DS or the upcoming New Nintendo 2DS XL, which launches on July 28.”
The New 3DS is probably done at this point. Nintendo is now focusing on the New 3DS XL, 2DS, and the 2DS XL at this point. The last hurrah for the New 3DS in the states was likely last year’s Black Friday sale.
