Fire Emblem: Awakening arrives Feb. 4
Nintendo confirms North American launch date for new 3DS game; Wii Fit U due first part of next year; Google Maps support for Wii U on the way.
A Nintendo Direct presentation today revealed that Fire Emblem: Awakening will launch in North America on February 4. It released in Japan in April as Fire Emblem: Kakusei and was previously slated for a Western launch during the first half of 2013.
Nintendo also confirmed launch windows for several high-profile Wii U games. Wii Fit U will launch in the "first part" of 2013, with Pikmin 3 due in Q2 2013 and Lego City Undercover during "early 2013."
Luigi's Mansion fans also received news during the Nintendo Direct presentation, as it was revealed that Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon for 3DS will arrive during spring 2013.
The Nintendo Direct presentation also revealed new information about the Wii U Panorama application that was shown off during Nintendo's 2012 Electronic Entertainment Expo presentation. The app will be available in the Wii U eShop during spring 2013 as a paid download, though it was not announced what gamers can expect to pay for it.
Lastly, Nintendo revealed that Google Maps support, including Street View, will be available through the Wii U sometime during the first quarter of 2013 (January-March 2013).
[CORRECTION] An earlier version of this story indicated Pikmin 3 was due in "early 2013." This is not the case. GameSpot regrets the error.
