Nintendo has announced that they will be holding an all new Nintendo Direct, centered around all things Pokemon, on February 26th. The broadcast will air at 4pm CET/7 a.m. PT / 10 a.m. ET, Friday 26th so get ready for some Poke-news. We fully expect to hear a ton of news regarding the popular franchise as this year marks the 20th anniversary for the series.

I am hoping to hear more about Pokemon Go as well as Pokken Tournament… Who knows, maybe Pokemon Rainbow will be confirmed?

Fire Emblem Fates Best-Ever Launch For The Series

Nintendo has announced that the well received Fire Emblem Fates was the best-ever launch for the series. With more than 300,000 units sold between all versions of the Fire Emblem Fates game during its launch weekend, the Nintendo 3DS strategy RPG has earned a place in the record books as the fastest-selling game in the history for the franchise. To put this in perspective, the game sold more than five times as many units as 2013’s Fire Emblem Awakening.

Outstanding news for Nintendo. I will be eager to see how these games sell in the coming months.

If you plan on digitally downloading the upcoming 3DS title Fire Emblem Fates, you can now preload the title from the Nintendo eShop. If you plan on getting both Birthright and Conquest, you have to go about it a specific way to get the discounted price for the titles. Players have to either play Birthright/Conquest up to Chapter Six, or grab a download code and redeem it at the Dragon’s Gate for the discount.

Fire Emblem Fates looks outstanding and if I still owned my 3DS, this would be an instant buy.
