Players won't have to wait long for the latest Fire Emblem epic.

Fire Emblem 3DS has been given a final name along with a Japanese release date.

The game was first revealed at the Nintendo 3DS Conference held a few months ago. It is now known as Fire Emblem: Kakuse. Iwata declared it to be an original entry in the series while it retains elements from previous games.

Fire Emblem: Kakuse has been given an April 19, 2012 release date for Japan.

I love Fire Emblem. However, I am worried if this game will be released by NOA. It has a niche audience and the second DS game was never released outside Japan. If anything, there was a Fire Emblem among the Ambassador line. Perhaps this is a good sign of Nintendo trying to increase the awareness of the brand.

As I said on Twitter, I'm not sure I'd buy this game even if it came here, mostly because of Sacred Stones being one of the Ambassador games. I like the series, but I'm not a major fan, and I never played that one, so I'd probably stick with it despite my apparent goal to own every game released for the 3DS.

If its fully voice acted so I can have the little scenes going on while I'm doing menu work etc. then I'm all there.
