The official Fire Emblem series homepage, Fire Emblem World, updated its staff blog today with an important message regarding the Fire Emblem Expo II event, which was recently canceled due to public health concerns.
In the blog update, Expo producer Tsutomu Kitanishi from Intelligent Systems shares forthcoming plans to take place in light of the cancellation. As it turns out, fans will be able to have an Expo-like experience next month after all!
Intelligent Systems has announced that the Fire Emblem Expo II event, which was originally scheduled for May 5th and May 6th of this year, has unfortunately been canceled.
The reason for the fan-focused convention’s closure is shared with no room for speculation: that it is to help prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus pandemic and their priority of consumer health and safety.

This update follows after many other real-world events across the globe, including those associated with the Fire Emblem Cipher trading card game in Japan, have taken similar countermeasures in light of the dangers, so news of cancellation or postponement has been speculated by fans for some time.
Intelligent Systems has updated the Fire Emblem Expo II website with some additional details. If you missed the expo’s announcement, we covered it in an earlier article. The main thing to know is that the expo will be held on 5th and 6th May in Japan.
Firstly, a number of music samples have been added, for the songs that will play during the live concert. Some of these songs will be included in the upcoming Fire Emblem Premium Arrange II soundtrack, releasing on 19th February.
To listen to the samples, scroll down towards the middle of the Stage section, then press the “play” buttons. Or use our playlist below:
Update: Corrected the name of sample track 10.
Next, the Merchandise section has been updated with all the glorious things you can purchase at the expo. To make things easier, there are two ways to purchase. One, you can order the items online prior to the event. Two, you can buy them in person during the event.
Online orders will be accepted between now and 29th February, via Intelligent System’s online store. Everything that can be purchased from the expo can be ordered online, with the exception of food items. Items can only be shipped within Japan.
Please continue for the goods!
