Fire Emblem Awakening demo releasing next week

Sample Intelligent Systems' 3DS gem from Thursday March 28

European 3DS owners will finally be able to get a taste of eagerly awaited tactical RPG Fire Emblem Awakening next week when Nintendo releases a demo on the eShop.


The taster will be available to download from the online marketplace next Thursday, March 28. What it'll offer hasn't been detailed, but it's unlikely to disappoint - earlier today we published our Fire Emblem Awakening review, in which we called Intelligent Systems' 3DS gem "a breathtaking tactical RPG that will consume every minute of your spare time."

Nintendo has confirmed a Fire Emblem Awakening release date of April 19 in Europe.

Launching alongside a European exclusive, limited edition Fire Emblem Awakening 3DS XL bundle featuring a pre-installed copy of the game, the title will be available at retail or as a download from the eShop.

Nintendo released Fire Emblem Awakening in Japan in 2012 and in the US earlier this year.
