    I'm talking about the official art for the characters. They just don't look very good compared to the rest of the Fire Emblem games.

    So, the official art as in these: http://www.nintendo.co.jp/fe/kakusei...ive/index.html (Not the thumbnails, those are ingame mugs)
    Correct?

    Really, it's all official.
    Not to mention FE has has a different art style for every universe. It's the design direction that doesn't look like FE. FE generally doesn't show much skin besides the legs on SMs, Sages, and Dancers. Past characters have been dressed more simply.Though, I have no idea what 'good' means. You're being vague You know, I can kinda compare this to the fourth generation of pokemon: more complexity/weirdness than previously.

    Either way, looking at the FE6 art, it could've been worse.
    At least it got the anatomy fairly well in Awakening. haha. Unlike Shadow dragon. I think this is the reason they got a new artist for New Mystery. Garnef has a thumb in his pointer finger, and the book is glued to his thumbless left hand. (Granted, his thumb is under his sleeve, but there is no way he can hold a book with four fingers all on the cover at that angle.) And Ogma. His shoulders. His Shouderrrssssss ;_;
    Anything below FE5 is crap.

    TL;DR: I'm tired of people complaining when past FEs have had *****y art to begin with.

    On a random note, I just realized Virions hair color is close to Valters o.0

    You've clearly never seen the official art for the games before the GBA games, then. Go look at Asvel's or Eyvel's offical art, they're 2/3rds torso. And then there's EVERYONE from FE1's official art...

    At least the guy doing the art for the non-DLC characters and Katarina has a decent grasp of anatomy.

    I was referring to the GBA games and beyond, specifically FE6-10. I should have been more clear. In general, the character artwork looks better in those games than in Awakening. IMO, of course.

    Since the sacred stones was part of the ambassador program on the 3ds, i'm currently playing it.
    at first it was a bit confusing, since i have never played a game in the series but i'm starting to get the hang of it. this seems like it's going a fun game

    The FE6 art is ugly. Especally compared to the FE7 art. I'll give the artist credit, he improved between the two games. Then he screwed up his DLC character lol

    OMG FE6 Marcus is BA, but he doesn't really look so manry in his portrait....


    EDIT: Nintendo direct tomorrow, guys

    Europe's getting it later than us? Well, I didn't expect that, to say the least, though there wasn't much reason for me to think either way. Good to finally know when we're getting it though, and early at that.

    Man, that sucks for Europe...

    Very happy to be getting this game so soon
    I'm glad the VA'ing is good.

    'Stabulous'? Come on, Virion...

    I haven't heard much of the VA'ing in this game, though the small amount I have heard is great.

    'Stabulous'? Come on, Virion...
    Get it? Because it's a pun? ...Ha ha....ok, I'll shut up...

    I think I'm going to like the localization, or maybe I just like it so much because fan translators generally don't spruce up the writing. (Not saying they're bad, just that they're generally faithful)

    It's pretty funny, though, I recognize the supports they've shown so far form Serenes XD
    I wonder if Avatar sees Chrom naked in the english version?

    Yeah, I feel exactly the same when it comes to translations.

    I've not seen much besides a few early supports as I still don't want to spoil everything in supports. They seem fantastic, which is great after having to deal with the "interesting" RD supports.

    Whoops, sorry. I don't think I'll say much more, but it is pretty cool to see the fan-translation line up, and then everything clicks in your head when you recognize it, hehe.

    Oh, no, that's fine. It's not like I haven't spoiled a few things for myself here and there. It's tempting when we've had such a long wait. Though it probably must be fantastic to recognize supports off of fan translations. Speaking of translations, I do see that we still get plenty of uncommon names here, which isn't a bad sight at all, for the most part.

    The fan translations of Awakening's supports on Serenes' forums are utter garbage.

    The vast majority of them are being translated from a Chinese fansite that is already known for taking things far too literally. It's going through two different translators, and the result is being pumped out by someone who hasn't even read the original source material.

    Well, judging by what I've seen the ones in the Nintendo direct match up. So they're at least accurate, albeit not well written. As long as the info is there with decent legibility I don't really care.

    I won't deny reading the localized versions will be much more fun.

    once PegasusKnight got the japanese transcripts up most of the japanese members went to that. And ShadowOfChaos records and subs the conversations himself. Which is really cool.


    EDIT:
    Fireemblemawakening.com is now live.
    Iris is now Ylisse (which is arguably more accurate than Iris, lol.)

    Don't forget about nintendo showcasing characters on their 3DS facebook.

    They've done Chrom, Lissa, and Frederic. I hope they do some 'new' characters soon. Or a villain.

    I wanna see what Sol has been localized toooo.
    (I say Sol because he will probably be one of the first 'new' characters.)

    i see that Gamestop has a pre-order bonus for awakening already. An artbook's cool, but I kind of wanted a free DLC or something. Oh well I guess. This game's gonna be amazing.


    Thanks to Astral Shadow for the button!

    I think free DLC is still a possibility, just not as a pre-order bonus. Like how japan did it. (and the international release of BW2 with Genesect)

    If you buy the game before a certain date you got the Marth DLC free. Though, with how much DLC this game has, that isn't much...

    I've got Shadow Dragon and Sacred Stones and the original Fire Emblem. Shadow Dragon upsets me though because for once, I haven't liked the way the character graphics were.

    By 'original FE' do you mean FE7?

    Well, he obviously didn't mean Shadow Dragon since he already mentioned it (and disliked the graphics, so I highly doubt he would have played any of the pre-Sword of Flame games).
