Fire Emblem: Awakening Was Almost Set On Mars

Andy Green: ''With Fire Emblem: Awakening emerging on North American shores this week, it seemed only fitting that Nintendo President Satoru Iwata was joined by the team behind the game in the latest instalment of Iwata Asks. Usually Iwata-san interviews three or four members of the development team, but this time - as if to stick with the theme of the series - Nintendo's chief assembled an army from Intelligent Systems to talk about its upcoming game.

During the discussion the team revealed how the game had become bogged down during the early stages of development as they tried to figure out how this game was going to pan out. The game's project manager, Masahiro Higuchi, revealed that they came close to dropping the medieval style setting altogether in favour of a more modern environment.'' (3DS, Fire Emblem: Awakening, Masahiro Higuchi)

Sounds brilliant.

Not really a fit for the "Fire Emblem" name, but build the game with FE mechanics and make it a new IP? Gold.
