Heroes: Resplendent Marth Arriving in November!

After yesterday’s shocking announcement that the very first Fire Emblem game is being localised for the Nintendo Switch, it’s only right that the next Resplendent Hero to be revealed is Marth, the Hero who started it all!

It seems that the Hero-King has become fond of Askran fashion after being summoned to their realm. As usual, you can check out more of his art and voice lines via the official FEH Pass site. He’ll be available starting from 10th November 2020 (UTC), once his beloved Caeda has returned home.

Community Spotlight: Fire Emblem Writer’s Zine

It’s time to share another pretty radical fan group’s project, and this time, it’s the Fire Emblem Writer’s Zine, a community’s collective publication celebrating the creative talent of writers within the Fire Emblem fandom.

If you’re familiar with the Together We Ride fan zine that we’ve promoted in the past, you may recognize the group involved, as one of its members, Damosel, is part of both the teams of this Writer’s Zine and the TWR zine. Now, there are a couple of differences with the Writer’s Zine, notably how you can enjoy it, and who they support.

For starters, they’re making their zine available as a PDF, meaning that there is no concern for shipping and receiving (a great relief in these trying times). The zine itself features stories and art from each of the mainline games, as well as Heroes and Warriors, coming to over 300 pages of content! Preorders are running until November 1st, and can be placed here. As it’s a PDF, delivery will not be an issue, and the huge amount of stories included can be enjoyed on the go.

The Writer’s Zine is doing this for charity, and the organization that proceeds will go towards is We Need Diverse Books, an organization dedicated to helping provide books to the hands of those in need. WNDB helps by finding and promoting books that connect with those readers, helping them grow as individuals as well as people, and above all, promoting and celebrating diversity (racial, disability, cultural, etc) with the creation and exposure of books that highlight diverse stories and their characters.

If you’d like to follow the efforts of the FEWZ team, follow their Twitter, and you can keep up with their future projects, as well as partnered and endorsed projects. You may even be able to participate in a future edition yourself, or share this with a friend that you think may be interested in the opportunity and they could find some solace with this team or their projects.

If you’d like to support We Need Diverse Books, but either find yourself light on spare money or time right now, you can spread the word of their organization by clicking here for their Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or YouTube, and share those links with your friends. Every little bit helps with bringing light to a charitable organization, and even something as following or sharing a group can help bring the attention that they need, to get the results that their beneficiaries deserve.

Cipher: New Dimitri promo, interview out this week

Following the Japanese trading card game Fire Emblem Cipher coming out with its very last booster expansion this month, a few more things of interest are still left to look forward to. Among these is the release of an all-new promotional card of Dimitri from Three Houses.

You won’t find this Dimitri in any booster — it’s bundled in a print magazine.

Enclosed as two copies with Dengeki Nintendo‘s December 2020 issue which drops October 21st, this appearance of Dimitri: Descendant of the Blue King of Lions is inspired by Faerghus’s founding king Loog and his penchant for the color blue. Saori Toyota, the card’s artist, recently commented on the reveal on Twitter, praising the house leader’s brilliance in justice.
