Nintendo began streaming a commercial on Friday for its upcoming Fire Emblem Fates turn-based strategy game for the Nintendo 3DS. The video highlights what happens after the protagonist makes the pivotal decision that casts players into either the Hoshido or Nohr faction. Nintendo streamed a "Two Kingdoms" trailer on Friday that highlighted the decision.
The Nintendo 3DS game will ship in the West on February 19. Like the Japanese version, the game will come in three different versions, each following different stories around the same characters depending on the protagonist's choice. The first two versions, titled "Birthright" and "Conquest," will be available with physical versions for US$40 each. Owners of either version will be able to purchase the other version at US$20. In addition, the third "Revelation" version will be available as DLC after the game's release for US$20.
Nintendo will also offer a US$80 Special Edition of the game (pictured below), which includes all three versions, an artbook, and a Nintendo 3DS XL pouch. Nintendo will release a Fire Emblem Fates special edition New Nintendo 3DS console, but it will not include the game.
