GBA Fire Emblem Available on Wii U Virtual Console as of Tomorrow

Turn-based strategy fans are in for a treat tomorrow as the first GBA Fire Emblem, the series’ debut title in the west, will finally be available on Wii U virtual console. Developed by Intelligent Systems, the studio responsible for the fantastic Advance Wars series, Fire Emblem gives players control of a band of warriors set on defeating a sinister power that threatens to devour the land. The series’ famous perma-death mechanic is in full effect here too, which means one wrong move could cost you permanently. It’s a stirring and challenging journey, and easily one of the greatest GBA titles ever released. Pick it up tomorrow for $7.99, and settle into your favorite armchair for the winter.
