Weekly Western Game Releases: Fire Emblem: Awakening (EU), Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen and Dead Island: Riptide!

Welcome to our Weekly Game Release News! From a cult zombie classic to beautiful pawns, and even the Awakening of a game long awaited for Europe, there are many great games this week!


Nintendo 3DS™ [Tactical Strategy Turn Based RPG] 

European 3DS owners will be pleased to know that Fire Emblem: Awakening is finally out for their region! One of the highest rated games this year, the 3DS debut of Fire Emblem is something all gamers can celebrate. Featuring the return of the marriage system and introducing the new pair up system, the famous permadeath from the Fire Emblem series is just that much more unbearable; that being said, this tactical masterpiece will have you paying attention to every move - and though there is a new casual setting for accessibility, strategy aficionados will most likely blaze forward in classic mode.
