Skipping DLC and grinding seems like a good combo when going with the no perma death mode, might actually make battles a bit more thrilling to ONLY worry about scraping through, rather than keeping everyone alive.

Anyways, there's ad scans drifting around that indicate the US at least will get the blue FE 3DS that Japan got. 3DS XL upgrade might've been nice, but it's still great to see that come over, it's one of the LE ones I would've actually wanted.

EDIT: For reference, the blue 3DS.

Aaaaand confirmed. Better preorder now before scalpers/Japanese fans who missed out on JP version due to low print numbers/other assorted assholes clean house.

Darn it, I already have the Legend of Zelda 3DS....but I want this. Curse you Nintendo! :(

is nosferatu the one that ignores res? i recall that being of only limited usefulness on most druid's unless you spent time raising sophia. however therein lies the problem with speedruns and a scoring system. theres no consideration for characters used. should a player that beats map A in 5 turns with haar get the same score as someone who beats it in 5 with Jill?

No, its the one that drains life from damage. Otherwise known as Nosfertanking where you can stick a Dark Mage/Druid on the front lines without worry since any hits they take is going to be healed back from the damage they deal so long as they don't get OHKO'd in the process. Normally, its not a terrible problem since such weapons are difficult to come by and your Druid is likely only sporting 10-12 Def by their endgame averages while their Spd and Luk aren't entirely enough to avoid getting doubled/critted while Weight tends to be an issue as well (there's also a sword variant known as the Rune Sword and is pretty beastly since its not limited to dark magic users only but tend to be extremely rare as a result).

What makes the tome and its upgraded variant so gamebreaking this time is that a) you get more than one Dark Magic user, b) the tomes are plentiful, c) stat caps are so ridiculously high that even crits tend to be a non factor for most of the time, d) the revised doubling formula gives otherwise slow classes such as Dark Mages and Sorcerers more leeway (takes 5 Spd now to double or be doubled), e) no weapon weight at all, f) you can forge and upgrade the power of the spell among other things making it even more effective at draining life, and finally g) there's a skill that prevents weapon durability loss based on luck*2 and all promoted classes have a default Luk cap of 45 (not including personal cap modifiers or the skill that raises all stat caps by 10 save HP and Move) making making any weapon unlimited use for those who have said skill, and for hilarity's sake h) you can stack the Sol skill on top of that (proccing that makes the hit drain life) for even more unkillable fun.

Of course, the trick with those last two points is that you need to have the correct class combination to both learn those skills and use dark magic (only Dark Mages and Sorcerers can use dark magic and no other magic using class barring the use of a very specific skill which only shows up online or during the postgame). But then, you're guaranteed at least four people who can pull this combination off regardless as to who you sleep with (and much much more if you ever go online).

 I'd get the bundle if it were XL. But it's not like I'll lose sleep just getting the mariokart bundle and FE separately.

Dang, Ninty is just making me want a 3DS more and more. I'll be fine if I can't get my hands on the bundle, but I'll see what I can find. Good thing I'm only a few subway stops from the Nintendo World store!

I had no desire for a 3DS until I actually looked at some of the things in the pipeline/near future.  It depends on what you're looking for and your priorities at the moment, but when I looked for stuff I found a lot of stuff coming out relatively soon that I would like to play.  I couldn't be happier that I bought one.

I pre-ordered FE.  Sounds fun enough.  I don't think the FE themed DS will have much of an impact here since it's not an XL, but we'll see.

Press release with price.

Not too surprised by $200 really, that's what the bundles for 2011 cost at least outside of Black Friday itself, and while the bundles just recently were cheaper they WERE year old games when Nintendo needed to stimulate sales. I'd probably be on this anyway if I didn't already have two 3DSes... and if it had a physical cart.

Eh. It'll hurt my wallet but with the current retro gaming bubble and a potentially dry year this year (I'm suspecting that all those new console rumors will bear something later this year which means launch titles and the occasional underrated gem) I think I will take the bite and hope for the best.

Asides from a collectors perspective is this a problem? Would I have space issues if I got a bundle because I couldn't uninstall the game without losing it?

Oddly enough, I can't find a definitive answer to this question. You'd think it'd be in the FAQ...I can't find anyone even asking that question, let alone an FAQ that mentions it....

EDIT:

Reworded the question, and found the answer in the System transfer section (you won't lose the pre-installed game if you do a system transfer, btw. I didn't know that. The eShop accounts merge, too) And I found out that the game will be saved to your download history, meaning you can redownload it on that system (or any systen you do a system transfer to) via the eShop. So it is safe to delete if you run out of space.

If you were interested in the angle of juggling the cart between 3DS and 3DS XL, yeah, it's a problem.

... Though so's the DLC. And it'd be a moot point anyway if Nintendo were more progressive on the DD front.

Oddly enough, I can't find a definitive answer to this question. You'd think it'd be in the FAQ...I can't find anyone even asking that question, let alone an FAQ that mentions it....

It's a 4 GB SD card, I'd hope you'd be fine. However, unless Nintendo REALLY fucked up I don't think you'll lose your game, it should be redownloadable from the eShop, and while that won't save your save you could probably just back the game up on your PC or whatever then copy back when you want to play.

Can you? Nintendo's website said something specific about that, but I can't remember what and now I can't find it...
