This is a slight piece of news, but it's great that Fire Emblem is both doing so well in the United States, but also leading the way in terms of Nintendo realizing the power of selling games directly to players. Nintendo has even begun to send review copies of their games via redemption codes to the press, and the standardized memory sticks in the 3DS line of systems makes buying games this way relatively inexpensive. Expect this trend to continue.
