Fire Emblem for Game Boy Advance, the first Fire Emblem game to come to North America, is now available on Wii U Virtual Console.

Released in 2003, Fire Emblem finally made its way to North America thanks in part to the popularity of Advance Wars and the appearance of Fire Emblem characters in Super Smash Bros. Melee, which released in 2001.

The latest Did You Know Gaming video looks at what could have been, what almost was, and why it is the way it is in the Mario universe.

The video looks at the doomed from the beginning CD-i games starring Mario, as well as a Mario Volleyball title from the makers of Super Mario Strikers that was deemed to violent for Nintendo's standards.

Explore The Stars In Double Damage Games' Rebel Galaxy

Described as "space combat, trading, exploration, adventure, slightly RPG," by Double Damage Games co-founder and developer Travis Baldree, Rebel Galaxy is one of the games that caught my eye the most at Sony's PlayStation Experience in Las Vegas. Baldree continued his comparison, saying, "if you took Sid Meier's Pirates, Star Control II, and the naval combat of Assassin's Creed: Black Flag, and you sew it together with a little bit of Wing Commander: Privateer – that's sort of what this is."

It's an ambitious blend of genres and games, yet the development team is just two people: Baldree and Erich Shaefer. The names may ring a bell, as they were the co-founders of Runic Games, the studio behind Torchlight and Torchlight 2. Baldree and Shaefer told me development is moving along nicely, and they hope to have the game out on PlayStation 4 and PC in 2015.

30 Minutes With Kill Strain, Sony's New 5v2v5 Action Shooter

One of my first stops on the PlayStation Experience expo floor was to see Sony San Diego's new intellectual property, Kill Strain, a game that was announced (but not shown) during Sony's lengthy keynote.Talking to a developer from Sony San Diego's team, Kill Strain has been in development for roughly three to four months with a small team of around 15 people.

Sony is billing Kill Strain as a 5v2v5 top-down, action shooter; a MOBA-like game that pits three teams against each another. Two of the teams are rival human factions, both composed of five players. The humans are at war with each other for resources. The third team is a mutant legion consisting of just two players. The mutants are stronger than the humans, and are driven by bloodlust. The death they deal can greatly affect the tide of battle.
