Pokemon which came out in September 2010 and has a US release date, March 2011. NM came out in Japan in JULY 2010 and still doesn't have a release date for the US.

I say IS is being a b****! :angry:

My guess is that B/W had more people working on it than NM. Or it can be that the testers are taking a long time to complete the game.

Fire Emblem is incredibly niche in comparison to Pokémon.

I know far too many people who don't know what it is... The fools!

They've released every FE game since Blazing Sword in the U.S., so why wouldn't they released NM?

Because it's a conspiracy to kill off Fire Emblem for good here and elsewhere too!

Then get to work and have people play it!

Chill. FE7 took 6 months, FE8 took 7 1/2, FE9 took 6, FE10 took 9, FE11 took 4 for European version, 6 for American. It's expected.

Not to mention that Pokemon is not that text heavy (well, maybe B/W are, but generally pokemon hasn't been), while this game is pretty darn text heavy.

Also, over at FES, someone said that their brother, who works at Gamestop, was able to preorder it, although there was no release date. But then they canceled the preorders. :\

International release is the biggest reason for remakes. And Casual Mode. We'll get it.

Although, I bet that it won't be released until Q2. So as not to compete with Pokemon B/W.

They have to translate every single move, ability, pokedex entry, item, etc, not just dialogue. Pokemon's much more text heavy than a Fire Emblem game.

^ that's so true. Pokemon should take 6 months but FE is taking too long to be released. Shadow Dragon wasnt as late as New Mystery and the only thing they added was an extra 5 online maps.

Forgot Pokedex entries, but moves? It's not at all six months worth of translating. Especially if that's your only job. And there are plenty of you to do it. Items? Well, besides the fact that the majority don't actually have to be translated (I think, haven't actually played B/W yet) because they've been in previous games, they're also not exactly long complex things to be translated. Compared to the rather large amounts of dialogue in the new Fire Emblem that needs to be translated, convey it's original emotion as well as basic meaning, and sound right to the ear? I guess Pokemon probably has more physical text, but a lot of it is also a lot easier to be translated. Especially given that a lot of it is probably being recycled. So maybe text heavy wasn't the right word.

And, as said, Pokemon doesn't really care when it's released, but FE really needs to avoid being released around big titles.

Think of every city in the Pokemon world, and how many NPCs are running around. Pokemon definitely has more text. However my guess is that Pokemon has about twice or three times as many people working on it.

Would I be banned from these boards for saying I want both games? Haha, hate them or call them childish, but they're good games too. That said, I will cry if a FE doesn't come to the states. (and by cry I mean wait until fans fully translate it and then I'll just get the ROM.)
