Valentia Accordion Translation Progress

Last week, on 30th April, the Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia memorial book “Valentia Accordion” was released in Japan.

 

Since then, Kirokan and I have teamed up to translate new information from the book. You can follow our progress on the forums or Kirokan’s website.

Anyway, here is a recap of our progress so far.

First things first, Kirokan has kindly scanned all the official artwork and full body portraits from the book, including many previously unreleased ones.

The full body pages also include character profiles, some of which have details not found in the game. Currently, the following profiles have been translated.

Because it takes time to translate and there are quite a lot of characters, translating all of the profiles will take some time. If you’re a Japanese translator and interested in helping, please contact Kirokan!

Moving on, the book features the entirety of the Book of Valentian Revelations, which traces the history of the Valentian siblings gods. Before this, only a handful of excerpts existed, via the game’s amiibo dungeons, etc.

Finally (for now), there is a 8-page Valentian timeline that covers the early days of the continent, all the way up to the War of Deliverance, and even briefly touching on the events of Awakening.

From here, there’s still a lot of content remaining. Of course, there are many, many character profiles to go through. There are even transcripts for the songs with lyrics. Meanwhile, I’m currently deciphering the secrets of the Thabes Labyrinth…

I’ll hopefully see you next time, if I make it out alive!

    the official artwork of rudolf is nice! I like how the game represent their face from the official artwork in their stats screen compared to their portrait (and I’ve no problem with it)
