On 12th March 2017 (tomorrow at the time of this post), there will be a special concert to celebrate the recently released Fire Emblem Music Collection: Piano ~Faith & Engagement~ music CD.
As we reported last time, event-goers will have the chance to purchase exclusive Fire Emblem merchandise at the venue, in a similar manner to the 25th Anniversary Concerts back in 2016.
During today’s very eventful Cipher Series 8 pre-release livestream (which you can expect a detailed report from our Cipher expert Kirie later on), the hosts showed off some of this merchandise.
Additionally, the official website for the CD and concerts has added a full list of the available merchandise, which you can find below.
Pin badge sets – 1,500 Yen each
These are large tin badges featuring a variety of important or popular characters. You get two badges with each set.
Faith & Engagement clear file set – 1,000 Yen
A set of three clear files. If you don’t know what those are, they’re typically A4-sized wallets used to store a few sheets of paper (or just the one).
Faith & Engagement tote bag – 1,500 Yen
Self-explanatory. You could probably use this to carry all the swag purchased from the concert.
Faith & Engagement IC card stickers – 1,500 Yen
According to Google, these are decorative stickers that you can place on bank cards etc. to hide your personal information from prying eyes. It appears they can be easily peeled off, for easy access.
All prices include tax. In addition, the usual caveats apply, i.e. if an item sells out, tough luck. Although to reduce this chance, depending on the item, there may be purchasing limits imposed.
There will be three opportunities to purchase merchandise:
- Advance Sales: From 11:00 to 13:00 (anyone can buy, even if they don’t have a ticket)
- Afternoon Sales: From 14:00 to 15:00 (prior to the afternoon performance; only available to afternoon ticket holders)
- Night Sales: From 18:00 to 19:00 (prior to the night performance; only available to night ticket holders)
Those intending to make purchases have been advised to follow the instructions of the event staff.
Anyway, it looks to be a humble selection of merchandise, but no doubt collectors near and far will be scratching their heads figuring out how to collect them all!
