Absolutely loving this game. I don't think I've played a better turn based strategy based on my first couple of hours play. The visuals are fantastic, it's clear and straightforward to play, loads of depth to the game and the strategies (supporting and combining characters etc.). Have also gone for classic mode and have lost Lissa and the Pegasus already which isn't great!
addyb said:Arrghh lost 2 characters. They were only just introduced as well. You really have to pick your battles on this and even then be wary of critical hits and other factors.
You certainly do! Just had a great battle * SPOILER * It's certainly not a game where you can get away with just marching in before really studying the board. Love it though and will have to buy the additional maps whilst they are on offer too. Can see me playing this loads!

Brilliant game. Intelligent systems are such a good developer and definitely a feather in Nintendo's cap. Will definitely get the dlc as well. This and Luigi's mansion are 2 of the best games I've played in a very long time.
Not been on the eshop. Is the dlc available yet or will that only be from tomorrow when its officially on the store.
What did you make of yesterday's Nintendo direct cas?

I can't wait to get this tomorrow now. Also the 3D trailer of the new Link to the past Zelda looks incredible. In fact the 3D on the 3DS is amazing and really adds to everything I've viewed on it so far as long as I can keep in that sweet spot.
The only problem is it was bundled with Professor Layton and my son has nicked it already, I'll have to share it with him tomorrow
