Fire Emblem Fates

The Fire Emblem Fates Special Edition is available again via Amazon Germany. If you’re seeking a European copy of the game, head on over here. We don’t know how long it’ll be in stock unfortunately!

Just like in North America and Europe, Japan is also getting the Fire Emblem Fates New 3DS XL. Nintendo shared the boxart today, which you can find above. It features male and female artwork of Corrin on both sides.

All units will also come with these Fire Emblem 0 trading cards:

It turns out that the Fire Emblem Fates Special Edition isn’t entirely exclusive to GAME. In addition, Nintendo’s own store is now taking pre-orders here. These should be the only two places where it will be sold.


In the UK, the Fire Emblem Fates Special Edition will only be available at GAME. That information comes from the retailer’s product page located here. While that may seem like a downer, you might be able to secure a copy at stores outside of the UK since there is no exclusivity in other European territories.

We have a few more bits of information regarding Fire Emblem Fates’ debut sales in the United States, along with data for a crossover 3DS title.

Nintendo confirmed earlier today that Fates sold close to 400,000 copies between Birthright and Conquest in February, with digital sales included. NPD leaker creamsugar puts the games at a combined 315,000 units sold – less than Nintendo’s amount since eShop sales aren’t accounted for here. Birthright sold the most with 44 percent (roughly 138,600), followed by Conquest at 41 percent (roughly 129,150) and the special edition at 15 percent (roughly 47,250).

Moving on, debut sales are in for Project X Zone 2. The game sold 18,000 copies in the United States last month – not counting any eShop sales.

Note that Fire Emblem Fates and Project X Zone 2 did not have a full month of sales since they launched during the middle of February. NPD’s February reporting period ended on February 27.

Nintendo has issued a response to the latest NPD sales report. There’s even more good news regarding Fire Emblem Fates’ performance in the U.S. last month as well as the classic Pokemon re-releases on the eShop.

First, Nintendo says that Fire Emblem Fates sold nearly 400,000 copies when combining physical and digital versions. “This far outpaces 2013’s Fire Emblem Awakening game, the series’ previous record-holder in the United States,” according to the company.

In other news, Pokemon Red, Blue, and Yellow on the 3DS eShop broke the first-week sales record. Super Smash Bros. for 3DS previously held this achievement.
