A Tale of Two Fire Emblems

You read that right; two Fire Emblem games are featured in today’s spotlight. 3

For the main news, Genei Ibun Roku #FE has not only given us some new artwork via toi8, but was officially released in Japan today!


Streamers are already taking to Twitch, such as BurningGravity and Hamayamaso if you want to check out the game with them, give them a watch and follow!

And if you thought I was only going to let you all know about GIR#FE news, you’re sorely mistaken. GameXplain and IGN have given three videos to analyze while playing them themselves.

While Serenes Forest’s localization team has been relatively spot-on with the translations for various names and weapons, a few names and terms have come out of left field, so to speak. Here’s a list I’ve compiled of every bit of information sans flat story dialogue.

Most of the translations are as expected, but Zero’s name being translated as Niles and Camilla’s class as Malig Knight have thrown many a fan off.

Still, that’s a lot of news, and IGN has promised us more videos of their playthrough through Fire Emblem, so we’ll likely have more localization confirmation coming soon!

Lastly, Dark Horse recently released pre-orders for their latest title, the English version of The Art of Fire Emblem Awakening art-book. This 320 page was only available on American sites, but is now available for preorder through Amazon.co.UK for £26.85. Availability is listed for July 26, 2016,
