Rallying all Fire Emblem fans! This November, Team Fire Emblem–made up of contributors from r/fireemblem, r/FireEmblemHeroes and Serenes Forest–will be coming together to raise money for Extra Life, which helps support Children Miracle Network Hospitals across the U.S..
Last year, Team Fire Emblem got together for the first time to organise a 28 hour livestream for Extra Life. There were speedruns of a dozen Fire Emblem games by many notable community members, an interview with Greg Chun (the voice of Ike and Ephraim etc.) and loads of cool prizes. In the end, we raised a total of $3,540!
This year, we’re hoping to massively top that. For starters, we’ll be holding four 12-hour livestreams–one during each Saturday of November. So on the 3rd, 10th, 17th and 24th. That equates to a whopping 48 hours of content throughout the month!
During that time, there will be speedruns as before, but also Fire Emblem game showcases, a Heroes tourney featuring some of your favourite personalities, at least 5 times as many voice actor interviews and a bucket-load of prizes–including an unmissable grand prize!
If you’re unsure what Extra Life is, you can visit the official website for all the important details. Reddit itself has a blog post with additional information. For specific information about what Team Fire Emblem is planning, you can check out our announcement post and follow up post on Reddit.
Schedule + Guests
The first day of the event starts on 3rd November at 12 pm Pacific Time.
Please note that the schedule for each day of the event will be posted a few days before the start of each event. Also, schedules are subject to change.
On the Fire Emblem community side, we have a bunch of big names, including:
That’s not all, as several Fire Emblem voice actors have kindly offered to make appearances during the stream:
- Brianna Knickerbocker (Sakura, Ninian, Charlotte, Est)
- Kyle McCarley (Alm, Soren)
- Robert Clotsworthy (Black Knight, Zelgius)
- Rena Strober (Azura)
- Chris Hackney (Boey, Quan)
- Greg Chun (Ike, Eldigan, Ephraim, Lukas)
- Allegra Clark (Ethlyn, Karla)
- Kyle Hebert (Bartre, Frederick, Validar)
We will provide more information about the prizes nearer the event.
For now, here’s a sneak peak at one of our more unique prizes–and you can bet there are many more like it!
In addition, Soeda Ippei (artist of Dorcas, Walhart, Arden, and Garon in Heroes) will be donating 4 exclusive artworks! These artworks are unrelated to Fire Emblem due to contractual reasons, but they are sure to be incredible.
Disclaimer: Regular raffle prizes are available to anyone regardless of location, but grand prizes can only be won by participants with a U.S. address. Sorry!
Links + Sharing
You can find us on our Twitch Channel every Saturday during November. However, if you’re busy on the day, don’t fret! This year, there will be VODs on our Twitch Channel and also on YouTube, so you can catch up with everything!
Crucially, we have an Extra Life Team Page, which we’d love for you to visit! This is where you can go to donate to the cause!
If you can, please share these links–and this post–to as many of your Fire Emblem friends as possible! Even if you’re not in a position to donate, simply spreading the word will help out a lot!
