    We need that Faia Emburemu here, i played but as a Wad…Its bad i know, but i wanted to play it i couldnt beat it cause is kinda difficult and the maps are Sooo long, also i reset my file 3 times.

    I feel like Nintendo could make a good bit of money by localizing games like this and giving them eshop releases. We’re still missing a ton of fire emblem games, 2 fatal frames, a gba f-zero, mother 3, captain rainbow and a ton of other titles but this is not we’re talking about they would never do something cool like that

      Why are you so eager to give nintendo money for bad localizations? NoA in their current state is incapable of delivering a proper translation. There’s no reason to reward them with money for butchering games and adding memes. Fan translations for these games have been available for nearly decades now for free.

        Agreed, I hope Treehouse gets their stuff together.

        Oh yeah the treehouse is terrible and i would love if they all got fired and Noe did our translation from here on out but I still think it’s a good idea to bring over unlocalized games like this one

        Have you seen the fan translation for Genealogy of the Holy War? Near incomprehensible.

          I believe they are in the process of ironing it out, though I don’t recall it being too bad (it has been awhile though. xD)

          Either way, I’m sure some dedicated fans can do a great job if need be!

            “process of ironing it out”

            The last update from what i found was in 2012. Either the folks focused on other projects and left it in the back burner and or all but abandoned it completely.

            Strange, I think it’s semi-recent though. From May 2016, there’s a somewhat active thread about bug fixes, grammatical error corrections, etc to suggest for fixing, which is why I was under the impression it was being done:

      Nope! Not getting any of those, instead we’re left with 40 Mario games and 10 Zelda games, and one non-Mario or Zelda game that either sold poorly and/or had a meme ridden, sloppily translated, carved like a Thanksgiving turkey localization.

    • Then ask for it on Miiverse. That how we got Earthbound and Donkey Kong 64

      • Addy

        Even if every person who used and asked on Miiverse it’s not going to happen. Earthbound had a difficult time getting a digital re-release due to some of the music sounding similar to the ones in real life, but was eventually released due to having an English translation. Earthbound Beginnings (aka Mother) got released (for the first official time) got released due to having an English translation. Any Fire Emblem game predating Blazing Blade will never leave Japan due to no English translation existing (not counting fanmade ones) and Nintendo won’t bother making one.

    The game is on the harder end for FE6+ fans for sure… it has a nice story with the children mechanic done right, though. xD

    I would’ve loved this to be a surprise “import” release on the NA eShop, don’t care if it’s on the 3DS or Wii U. At first, I thought it was.
