He was clearly joking, though I'd pay good money to watch him lock himself in a room and try playing through it. Could be a whole new Breaking Brad's Soul series. Sort of like that first Spook'n with Scoops episode?
Just finished the demo and gotta admit, it's very nice. The 3D in it is great, it looks like I'm looking into a box that a bunch of people are playing Warhammer or some other table top game in. Never been into the Fire Emblem franchise but I might give this a try, depending on how busy I am around release.
