Fates: Camilla Figure at NYCC 2016

First revealed at the Summer WonFes 2016, the 1/7 scale figure of Camilla from FE Fates made a surprise appearance at New York Comic Con 2016.

You can find loads of pictures over at NYGamer and Plastikitty. The biggest thing you’ll notice (except, uh, you know what…) is that the figure is now painted and in colour. Otherwise, there are no new details since last time.

Curiously, Intelligent Systems is still advertised as the figure’s distributor, although it’s unclear if they’re the ones publishing it or if they’re simply waiting to announce a partner (such as Good Smile Company).

Either way, Camilla’s appearance at NYCC is hopefully a sign of an eventual international release. (Although figures are “region-free”, it’d be nice to save on potentially hefty import costs.)

Marcella Lentz-Pope AMA, Now Taking Voice Requests

Today (into tomorrow) is your last chance to participate in the Ask Me Anything (AMA) thread with Marcella Lentz-Pope, before the event concludes. However, if you’ve already asked your questions, don’t pass this up just yet. She’s decided to end it with a bang, by taking voice recording requests from you, the user!

Serenes Forest Interviews Lady Corrin! Join Our AMA Event!

As you probably already know, the English version of Fire Emblem Fates was released a little under seven months ago (February 19th, 2016). Since the game’s release, popularity for the franchise once again jumped, as fans of the series flocked to the streets to pick up copies for themselves. Interest skyrocketed during the game’s initial release in Japan and here in the US when the protagonist, Corrin, was revealed. Heck, I myself found myself drawn to the female version of Corrin, due to my use of the game as a stellar strategy game and a great reading tool to help my daughter learn to read.

I found myself fortunate enough to have a chat with Marcella Lentz-Pope, the voice actress of Corrin, and while things just started off as an interview, I’d say we’ve established a friendship, too! She’s voice Scarlet and Corrin (Female) in both Fire Emblem Fates & Super Smash Bros for Wii U & 3DS, so just on this alone, I’d say she’s already quite accomplished! She’s super friendly, and I’m definitely glad that we had this chance to chat!

If you think you recognized her voice from somewhere but just can’t put your finger on it, you might recognize her from other games such as Halo:Reach (Sara), Moira Burton (Resident Evil: Revelations 2) and League of Legends (Kindred), or from television series like The Fosters (Chloe Hendricks), Criminal Minds (Emma Phelps) and Avatar: The Last Airbender (Jin).

After the interview, Marcella was kind enough to join our forum and participate in an Ask Me Anything (AMA) event, and you can only assume how ecstatic I am about that!

Serenes Forests’ Fire Emblem Fates Post-Release Popularity Poll

Serenes Forest denizens, have you conquered your Fates?!

Last year, Nintendo conducted their own popularity contest for Fire Emblem if. The rest of the world has has Fire Emblem Fates now for over six months, and hasn’t had a poll by Nintendo for its favorite unit.

*Click Here to be directed straight to the poll*

Serenes Forest did our Pre-Release Popularity Poll, but that was before we knew what we know now. After localization changes, we’ve got our own genuine version to rate. It’s a tad overdue, but we’re prepared to run our next installment of the Fates Popularity Poll. Things have definitely changed in the community with opinions regarding much of the cast. Well, now’s your time to speak up and share your thoughts about it!

This contest will start today and end on October 19, the 8-month anniversary. The rules for this are simple; one vote for your favorite male and one vote for your favorite female. Unlike the Japanese Popularity Poll, our results will always be visible and limited to one per user. They will remain forever anonymous. You can share your vote in public via post if you’d like, or keep it to yourself. You can even fib, if you want. Nobody has to know.
