Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn comes to Wii!


14/02/2008

14 February 2008 - Plan the perfect battle and fight for a country’s freedom as Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn heads to Wii! Using strategic planning and skill, mixed with a little bit of luck and magic, players must prepare to execute the perfect attack and defeat the enemies occupying the country of Daein. This sequel to the popular Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance on the Nintendo GameCube will see a return to the exciting world of turn-based battle as Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn manoeuvres its way across Europe on 14 March, 2008.

The battle lines have been set and a revolution is in the making! Following defeat and the death of their leader, the Northern Kingdom of Daein has come under the rule of the tyrannical and powerful Begnion Empire. Defeat has dispelled all hope of the ruined country rebuilding itself and seeing a new dawn, but help is on the way! A band of young revolutionaries has come together in the Daein capital of Nevassa, forming the Dawn Brigade with the simple goal of saving the lives of their fellow countrymen. Facing the consequences that this small act of defiance causes, it’s up to the player to produce the perfect battle strategy for the Dawn Brigade and guide them to liberating Daein from the Begnion army’s rule.

Presented with the battlefield ahead of them, players must assess the terrain and the enemy’s position on the grid-divided map as they engage their army of characters. Taking turns with the opposition, units are moved between the grid spaces across land and tactically commanded to directly, or indirectly, attack the enemy ahead to obtain victory and eventually freedom!

The game features more than 70 characters, and each possesses unique and varying levels of ability. Life in the Fire Emblem world is fragile; once a character is lost, they are gone forever, taking their skills with them!

Controlling Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn couldn’t be easier, with three different options available to players that include the Wii Remote held sideways, the Classic Controller and the GameCube controller. Those who completed Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance can also reap additional benefits! If a save file was created on a GameCube Memory Card, it can be downloaded onto Wii, and an advantage will be gained from the previous efforts.

With over 40 chapters to complete and three difficulty levels, players will have countless battle options available to them.

Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn launches across Europe on 14th March 2008 for the estimated retail price of £36/€50.
