They really want to sell 3DSes MORE, don't they
NINTENDO Y U DO THIS

Specifically, I'm talking about the relationship status screens below.

I AM pretty sure the phrases they say about each other are randomised from a pool since some of them seems weird in regard to the situation, but it'd be so easy to just make them gender/relationship type-specific. And also, the old man's commentary shows that Intelligent Systems CLEARLY knows what we're thinking, and are basically going 'hey, y'know, you're FE fans. We know you like these things that we've been keeping JUST out of arm's reach for years. So, you know. Have at it. It's yours. Have fun."

Translation of selected screenshots:

The mutually yuri screenshot
----> = "I love her, but I can't tell her"
<---- = "I want to protect her even if it takes my life"
Old man : "Ah, female friendship certainly is...passionate."

The mutually gay screenshot
----> = ....omigod I can't translate this it's too embarrassing. Let's. Just say. Cheek-rubbing amounts to a very affectionate cuddle when you think something is ridiculously cute.
<---- = "I think he's my destiny."
Old man : "You're both guys, what are you thinking?"

The incest screenshot
----> = "I love you lots <3"
<---- = "I'll do anything for you"
Old man : "What a pair of truly scary siblings..."

Oh, and your relationship can totally suffer even after you're married, it seems.

HOWEVER.

BUT.

It will be completely shit if this is what replaces support systems. I remember I've seen support convos in the trailers, but honestly I have no idea about the amount or quality of those. Fanservice like this can go a long way if it comes with a proper support system. Seriously. I will love them for that because it's at least a way to get your pairings acknowledged by a game even if you don't have a paired ending, and everyone should be happy about that. You get married and have kids (who grows old enough to join your party somehow) for god's sake. But. If it's kind of like an evolved version of Radiant Dawn, I will be sitting here with a permanent scowl on my face.

And no, Ninty, it's still not selling me a 3DS until some enterprising hacker removes that region lock. Because. On principle.
