The Children’s Birthdays
With the exception of Morgan, all of the children are born on the Japanese release date of a Fire Emblem game.
|Lucina||20th April||Dark Dragon and Sword of Light
Path of Radiance
|Severa||21st January||Mystery of the Emblem|
|Cynthia||14th May||Genealogy of the Holy War|

Rather fittingly for the player’s child, Morgan’s birthday is the same day as Children’s Day (May 5th in Japan).
Ancient Text I
The Knights of Iris book reveals that there is a set of translatable ancient glyphs in the game.
According to the designers, there are carvings on the Falchion that read “sniamer llits erutuf eht tsol si esle lla nehw”, which when reversed produces an English sentence.
Similarly, the Fire Emblem has a number of carvings, which read:
“White flame orb holy light
Black flame orb dark night
Blue flame orb starry heavens
Red flame orb lifeblood
Green flame orb mother earth”
The text is a direct reference to the five holy orbs from Marth’s games, e.g. Lightsphere, which are now known as “White Flame” etc. in the Japanese version.
Ancient Text II
In particular, the text is apparently most clear when casting Valflame (shown above).
The Mystery Continents
If you’ve played the game, you’ve probably seem them: three mysterious landmasses found to the very north, south and south-west of the world map.
Most fans believe these are probably continents from previous games in the series, e.g. Jugdral, Elibe, Magvel and/or Tellius.
However, if you thought of analysing the mysterious continents in detail, to try and play continental match up, then it seems you’re out of luck.
