It doesn’t matter if you’re working on Nintendo’s blockbuster RPG, it won’t get you any special treatment. One of Fire emblem engagementThe main voice actors were unable to get their hands on the Collector’s Edition of the game despite pre-ordering it.
Brandon McInnis, who voices the male version Fire emblem engagementwas disappointed to learn that GameStop was unable to fulfill his Divine Edition pre-order.
“GameStop just called to let me know that my Divine Edition pre-order…unfortunately won’t be fulfilled as the company told them to sell pre-orders with no guaranteed stock,” McInnes said in a tweet. “I express the lead in the game.”
“When they originally told me the release was delayed the night before release, I got a digital copy instead … but it annoys me that people gave money to GameStop believing they were going to get a copy of something special for them, and they got ripped off,” continued McInnis. “I just want to let you guys know to spare you some grief when a game that is really important to you goes down in the future.”

As a die-hard Fire Emblem fan, I sympathize with McInnis’ tale of misfortune. If I ordered the Divine Edition only to find out that my chosen store sold me a pre-order with no stock guarantee, I’d be impressed too. The Divine Edition doesn’t go beyond extra goodies, but the art book, poster, and art cards are certainly pleasing to the eye.
Fire emblem engagement is an excellent entry in the series, offering intricate turn-based strategy gameplay combined with cheerful anime melodrama. While I felt it lacked some of its predecessor’s charms, Fire Emblem Three HousesI still had a great time with him.
In fact, I think the combat in Fire Emblem has never been better. On hard difficulty, the game is wonderfully unforgiving and offers some serious strategic challenges. With permadeath on, sometimes I had to let a loved character die to complete a mission. The process was often heartbreaking, thanks in large part to the work of talented voice actors like McInnis who helped bring the game’s cast to life.
It’s sad to think of people missing out on their preferred version of the game as retailers promise pre-orders they can’t deliver. Hopefully McInnis’ tweets will raise awareness of this practice and make retailers like GameStop think twice before making consumer promises they can’t keep.
