Who’s ready for another dealing of official Fire Emblem merchandise? Intelligent Systems sure are, because they’ve announced another wave of merchandise arriving in February 2019.

In case you missed it, new merchandise will also be arriving in December of this year and January of 2019. All of this stuff is exclusive to Japan, but you can always import them from sites like AmiAmi and CDJapan.

Anyway, time for the lowdown!

Tin Badges – 600 Yen each (excl. tax)

This time, only two new badges have been added: female Corrin and Xander. As usual, these 75 mm badges are great for wearing or just collecting.

Team FE Presents Extra Life: Day 3, Nov. 17 11a – 11p PT

I’m back, with an update on Team FE’s third day of exciting Fire Emblem themed shenanigans! We’re set to go live in about 20 hours, and if you thought Day 2 was a doozy, you’re not ready for Day 3. Before that though, an update on our Day 2 success, and a reminder of what we’re doing this all for.

Team FE was able to raise $3,245 in our first two 12-hour days, which is absolutely amazing! Considering that last year, our single day, 24-hour straight event brought in roughly that same amount ($3,540), things have been going quite smoothly and in my opinion, just as successfully. We’ve still got a lot planned, and with the 24th being our last day, we have to make the second half of this event a memorable one.

Where last year’s focus was on speedgaming, this year has highlighted a metric ton of voice talent in the franchise, bringing in six voice actors on-stream during our event so far, not counting the ones joining us tomorrow, or others that offered up autographs for signing merchandise. Speaking of…our schedule for November 17th foresees special appearances by a high range of talented voice actors in the Fire Emblem franchise, including:

Aside from our voice actors, you can see games played by familiar faces, including Kirbymastah, Mekkah, Gwimpage, Lord Raven (not our Staff’s Raven) and a strange amalgamation of Team FE members that may even include yours truly. for a rousing game of Quiplash. Finally, we’ll be highlighting several artists during some interview sessions, such as reappearances from SF’s ciarre and Reddit’s Tecchen, as well as a new contributor to our event, 24914. If you miss a chance to interact with anyone but want to score a second chance, either visit our forums, hang out at the subreddits, or for the voice actors, check out their Twitter profiles and Unlocked* profiles. With so many big names coming aboard, you won’t want to miss tomorrow!

As far as Unlocked goes, it’s an iOS app (in Beta for Android devices as I type this), which allows fans to engage in conversation with voice actors, artists, cosplayers and other big names within the anime and gaming community, via livestreaming through mobile devices (sort of like Facebook Live). David Vincent is one of the creative minds behind this app’s existence, and it’s pretty fun to use. I’ve had my fair share of conversations with voice actors that joined us this year, and it’s a great way to support talented contributors to the things that make games as enjoyable as they are.

Cipher S15 Weekly Recap: Daily Cards, Livestream Reveals, & More!

It’s been a very exciting week for Fire Emblem Cipher! Not only have we had several days of S15 reveals, but last Saturday’s Autumn Livestream also showed off many new cards and art. Additionally, we got some website updates with more information on the set, upcoming livestream, and release promos!

The most interesting Twitter reveals of the week feature some prominent Jugdrali characters. First up, is an alternate art SR+ for Leif! He stands proud with images of his parents behind him. Travant and Quan also get their own alternate art in a joined-art R+ panorama. Ethlyn joins her son and husband with a new card reveal this week as well.

The weekend’s livestream showed off the regular art for Leif’s SR and Quan’s R, which you can see below.

Sheena and Maria also arrived this week to represent New Mystery. Sheena makes her Cipher debut with a very elegant Cost 1 that shows off her royal side, followed by a promoted R card as a General. Maria, however, has chosen a rather interesting reclass for her appearance this set! Her SR features her promoted as a Dracoknight, but still wielding tomes.

The final twitter reveals this week are for Conquest. As expected, Female Corrin gets a signed SR+. The card art features her Nohrian siblings all around. Camilla also gets both an N and an R this set. Likely, all of the Conquest siblings will get R cards, similar to the Birthright siblings in S14.

Saturday’s livestream also revealed a large number of cards from the set from all titles. We also got some more art for the upcoming S16! Click on the “Read More” button below to see the livestream reveals and also the various website updates from this week.
