Above is the Cantonese Chinese version of the video; you can find the Mandarin Chinese version over here.
Anyone with vague knowledge of Chinese can probably tell from the video that Yamagami absolutely does not know Chinese, but you can’t fault the man for trying, nor for his unyielding enthusiasm.
In any case, the biggest news is that Fire Emblem Echoes will be the very first Fire Emblem game to receive an official Chinese translation, much like how Pokemon Sun and Moon were the first Pokemon games to receive one.
This past Saturday, the Fire Emblem Cipher team held their Cipher Winter Livestream on NicoNico. As usual, Ryota Kawade and Young were our hosts, and they were joined by Juri Kimura, the voice actress for Mozu and Nyx in Fire Emblem Fates.
Afterward, discussion turned towards Cipher, and they began showing off some new cards from the upcoming Series 8 releasing next month. The first batch of cards were all characters from the second generation of Genealogy of the Holy War.
Fire Emblem Heroes director Shingo Matsushita made a special guest appearance on today’s Fire Emblem Cipher livestream. Alongside Cipher news, which will be covered in depth in a later post, Matsushita made a surprise announcement…
Seliph and Julia from Genealogy of the Holy War and Eirika and Ephraim from The Sacred Stones will be coming to Heroes! Although no firm details were given, we were greeted with these two shots of the characters’ in-game artwork.
@FE_Heroes_JP later confirmed the announcement, stating that the characters would be coming in a few days. Since the two current Summoning Focus character groups will expire on February 15th, these four may be part of a new Focus group introduced at that time.
