Path of Radiance “Tellius Recollection” Update

Amazon Japan recently updated the product listing for the Path of Radiance artbook that was announced during the Cipher Series 5 pre-release livestream.


At the moment, the only image available is the front cover, which features a new piece of artwork of Ike by Senri Kita, the official artist for the two Tellius saga games. If you tuned into the Cipher livestream or read up about it, you may recognise it from there.

In addition, the book now has an “official” English name of sorts: Fire Emblem Path of Radiance Memorial Book Tellius Recollection: The First Volume. As hinted previously, the second volume will focus on the sequel, Radiant Dawn.

The text on the cover also informs prospective buyers that the Radiant Dawn edition is expected to release during Autumn 2016, so not long to go!

Here’s what the product description says about the first volume:

A compilation of official documents from developer Intelligent Systems. For the first time, official documents revealing three aspects of character designs will be revealed, such as their background in this world, and rough sketches of their original illustrations. In addition to that, this book features info on the full story, setting, every support conversation, a directory of character names (even enemy commanders), and much more. Everything you need to know about Path of Radiance wrapped up in one package. Senri Kita, the illustrator who drew all of the character artwork, makes a special return to draw the cover for this book, too!

Many thanks to Kirokan for the translation!

Finally, in case you missed it, the book contains 256 pages and will be on sale (in Japan) from 29th July 2016, for the price of 3,456 Yen.

By the way, if you’re interested in the development (and fan) side of Fire Emblem, be sure to give Kirokan’s website Kantopia a visit. Right now, Kirokan is translating pages from the 25th Anniversary Staff Book.
