Woah, hey! Fire Emblem is a 2012 release? I could have sworn it was gonna be 2013. That's great news! I'll begin saving for that immediately. I'm a huge fan of the franchise, and all reports out of Japan is that this is one of the best entries in a while.

Too bad it looks like Animal Crossing is definitely not gonna make it until 2013 though. Oh well, one of my favorites is making this year. I really can't reasonably ask for more now can I? I'm satisfied :)
