Obscure Content Available On Official Fire Emblem Awakening Website

Get your Fire Emblem Awakening wallpapers, timeline covers, and profile icons!

Have you been to the official Fire Emblem Awakening website lately? Did you happen to know that it's chock-full of downloadable content? I'm not referring to the game's DLC, though. Once you land on the main page, you're greeted with a rather large and inviting image to the right while a handful of links garnish the left side. Links such as "About the Game," "Story," "Character," "Gameplay," and "Connect & Download" can easily guide you to their respective pages. Strangely, a "Videos" link is also present, but it's hidden behind the "Buy Now" image.

A quick scroll to the lower half of the page reveals some supplemental information. Various images (in a slider) can be clicked on that represent things like Mr. Iwata-san's Fire Emblem Awakening interview, a link to the Fire Emblem Awakening Quick Response (QR) code for the 3DS eShop, and even a link to a "downloads" section.

"Wait, what? What's this all about? It sounds pretty important. What can I download?"

Literally hidden right under your nose the entire time, the downloads section gives you access to the following goodies:
  • Official Wallpapers - download six beautiful wallpapers in four different resolutions to be used for your desktop, or however else you see fit
  • Icons - three sets of icons, featuring twenty-four of the most iconic characters, sized at 100x100 pixels
  • Timeline Covers - created from the wallpapers, these six covers are a great way to show off your love for Fire Emblem Awakening
  • Profile Picture Icons - these are the same as the icons, but in 200x200 pixel format
On a personal note — and I rarely present my personal opinions inside articles — I really hope Nintendo of America takes the time to clean up their Fire Emblem Awakening website. There's a laundry list of things on the site that are half-finished and just don't jive well together. I've already mentioned two of them. It's uncharacteristic to see Nintendo of America (especially Nintendo of America) design a shoddy website for a game. I'd prefer to be ignorant to whether or not they outsource these types of projects or not. Just look at how beautifully designed the Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon website is. Please, Nintendo, put forth a little more effort and give your Fire Emblem Awakening fans something to be proud of. First and foremost, be proud of yourself.

Agreed on the Luigi's Mansion site.  I love those buttons!
Imagine the nightmare of a poorly-designed Animal Crossing New Leaf website! The Japanese version of the ACNL website is gorgeous with lots to see. It feels like a community website somehow, without the community there! XD
