Heroes: Legendary Hero Eliwood, Blazing Knight, Coming 6/28

As we know from the Calendar, a new Legendary Hero is set to drop in a few days. The trailer for it just came, and it’s bringing some love for Blazing Sword, literally, in Eliwood: Blazing Knight,

Eliwood: Blazing Knight, is a Wind-affinity Duel Blessed Legendary Hero, and is a mounted red sword cavalry. He comes with the Pair Up feature, as expected, and also a unique C skill, Visions of Arcadia, which supports non-Human (non-Beorc?) characters in a pretty complex way. Additionally, he brings a new dual-Rally skill, in Rally Spd/Res+.

On June 28, until July 5, Eliwood: Blazing Knight is available for summon, and of course, he’ll bring his other Heroes, available at 8% just like other traditional Legendary Hero banners. The other available heroes will be:

  • Blue
    • Ephraim (Legendary)
    • Lucina (Legendary)
    • Selkie
  • Colorless
    • Robin (Legendary)
    • Sakura (Hot Springs)
    • Veronica
  • Green
    • Gunnthra
    • Hinoka (Hot Springs)
    • Yune
  • Red
    • Hrid (New Year’s)

Three Houses: E3 Nintendo Direct Announces Release: July 26, 2019, with Trailer

Nintendo’s E3 direct started of immediately with a Super Smash Bros Ultimate showcase, bringing in a shadow Marth getting his butt kicked by Dragon Quest’s, before several other alts of the eponymous luminairy showcase their moves in a very beautiful display. T’was a rough start for our franchise. Something much better came along though…

We got a long-awaited view of Fire Emblem Three Houses, showcasing all of our lord characters, as well as some villains, loads of English voice acting, and the three house leader’s grown up selves? I certainly can’t do it justice, but if you happen to have been keeping up with leaks on Reddit, perhaps /u/Thanibomb can elighten you on more details. They brought quite a bit to light way ahead of time, so an accolade is due!


I’m sure VincentASM will follow me up with a stellar analysis, as he always does

 

*Edit: NintendoUK posted on YouTube, the trailer, so here it is for you.

FE Three Houses is set to release on July 26, 2019, so get your wallets ready!

Surprise Feh Channel Drops, Brings Nice New Features and New Mode

Feh was a sneaky owl, dropping a Feh Channel on us with pretty much no notice at all. That’s fine, however, as she brought with her some good news on things to come, including a new mode, more summoning banners than fingers on our mobile-loving hands, and some nice upgrades that will be hitting the Aether scene.

Starting things off, Feh kicked the show going with her usual announcement, but what immediately hit us was some nice music, and news of the upcoming Aether Resort Concert Hall.

This new feature gives Summoners the ability to spend their R&R Affinity points on new tracks to listen to, while watching up to five Heroes “Dance” to the tune.


The coolest part of this is that in the Music Settings area, you can pick and choose what music plays on various screens of your game. Wanted to change what plays on the Home Screen to the Prep screen music from Fire Emblem Shadow Dragon? You can finally do that! More music will come in future releases, so keep earning those R&R Affinity points for a great quality of life improvement.

Project Exile Releases High-Quality Fire Emblem Thracia 776 Translation Patch

If you’re unfamiliar with the SNES era of Fire Emblem games, there were three released: Fire Emblem [3] Mystery of the Emblem, Fire Emblem [4] Genealogy of the Holy War and Fire Emblem [5] Thracia 776. The former was a continuation of the very first Fire Emblem, and both of the latter had an incredible unique story-driven gameplay experience, introduced mechanics that are still used in today’s Fire Emblem games, and have characters that the Fire Emblem Heroes mobile game has brought some love to, with great reception. Sadly, for worldwide audiences, the games were only released in Japan, along with the following edition, Fire Emblem [6] The Binding Blade, before the world had its first Fire Emblem release in the titular Fire Emblem [7].

While a translation patch of this game existed many years ago, it was far from perfect, and even had some functionality quirks that impacted gameplay. This inspired the creation of Project Exile, a community attempt to restore Thracia 776’s translation dreams into an even greater reality. That project finally came to a close, with its completion upon us today. As a summary, if you’re unfamiliar with Project Exile…

Project Exile
A Complete Thracia 776 Menu and Script Translation

Thracia 776 has long been the FE community’s white whale. Project Exile is my own attempt to finally put this English patch to bed, using the remnants of Kirb’s patch as a foundation and taking the menu translation (and considerable technical advice) from Zane.

Project Exile represents a grand collaboration between many people from across the world, none of whom have ever met in person. Our translation team consisted of people from throughout the United States, France, and Austria, who all pooled their expertise and talents to make this patch a reality. We hope you enjoy this patch as much as we enjoyed making it!

There will be subsequent patches released for this patch, providing simple bug fixes and improvements as time brings to light a need for them, but the first release is here, and can be accessed

The team was led by Cirosan, and had help from over a dozen others, before its grand completion you see here. I had the chance to get to know Cirosan and four leads within the crew, and they were kind enough to share their time and answer some questions, so we can not only have a stellar translation patch to use, but also, get a little bit of an inside look as to what happened to complete this endeavor, and what might be coming next from the team.

For more details on the release itself, you can find additional information in their Reddit post, on their FEUniverse post, in our very own Serenes Forest post, or even join their bustling Discord community. Lastly, a direct link to the release can be accessed by clicking here.
