Corrin (F) Figma and Nendoroid Available to Pre-order

Although female Corrin may not be receiving an Amiibo (as far as we know anyway), that doesn’t mean that fans will be unable to own a plastic version of her.

First teased at the Summer Wonder Festival 2016, figma and nendoroid versions of female Corrin are now available to pre-order from good import/hobby sites (such as AmiAmi).

Both of the figures are produced by Good Smile Company, who are renown for creating high-quality products. Which is also evident from the price tag: 6,800 Yen for the figma and 5,200 Yen for the nendoroid.

The figma is to scale and measures 145 mm, while the nendoroid is super-deformed and measures 100 mm. As you can see from the pictures, both can be posed and include a few accessories like a dragonstone.

Speaking of which, if you order the figma directly from GSC, you can get an exclusive Omega Yato accessory.

The Fire Emblem Cipher Series 7 booster boxes may have already been released, but this particular set also has a large amount of related promotional cards. Many promos were still unrevealed by the time the set itself released, but now we can take a look at them and hopefully learn how to get our hands on them…

As usual, the first 2 promos were the preview promos included in the S7 Booster Boxes, and the next six are all special promos available to players who compete in Cipher tournaments in Japan.

If you’re getting the game for Christmas or you’ve been considering getting the DLC, this is a great opportunity. As for those of us who got the DLC beforehand, well, at least we got to play it earlier!

The best bit is that all DLC is included, which means the Conquest, Birthright and Revelation story paths and both of the Map Packs are all eligible–a double bargain considering they’re already discounted.

Below, we have a helpful chart of all the discount DLC and some quick thoughts about each, in case you’re wondering which ones to go for.

Tellius Recollection Volume 2 Recap

The Radiant Dawn design book Tellius Recollection Volume 2 was released in Japan a few weeks ago. If you’ve been keeping up, Kirokan has been diligently translating the contents over on our forums, just like for the first volume.

Before diving straight into the new book, I should mention that the translations for the first volume (which covers the previous game, Path of Radiance) are pretty much complete.

In fact, not long ago, Kirokan translated the last major segment, which features the developers’ thoughts on the game. Here’s a link to Kirokan’s website, where the translation can be found.

What’s interesting is that the developers considered changing the story depending on if you followed Titania’s or Soren’s advice. Fans may remember that Titania was strict but understanding, while Soren was heavily focused on the results.
