All RPGs feature character progression to an extent. Modern RPGs have been streamlining progression, however, as more and more players don't want to deal with the number crunching and item management involved. One stalwart against this trend of simplification is the strategy RPG. That trend will continue with Nintendo's latest offering on the 3DS - Fire Emblem: Awakening.
Nintendo released a new trailer for Fire Emblem: Awakening today that details the character progression system in the title. Newcomers to the franchise can learn all about evolving their characters into the ultimate warrior or mage, while seasoned veterans can get a look at the changes being made to the game system in the newest installment.
Fire Emblem: Awakening will be made available on the Nintendo 3DS on February 4. It will retail for $39.99.
