SuperGroupies, a posh fashion brand in Japan, has announced a limited-time collaboration with the Fire Emblem series. The line up includes watches, bags and scarfs inspired by Path of Radiance, Awakening and the recently released Three Houses.
Besides Fire Emblem, SuperGroupies has also collaborated with many other franchises, usually related to gaming, anime and the like, such as Persona and NieR:Automata.
Global shipping is available–and there’s even an English version of the website, although it’s run through a machine translator. So if you are interested, you’re in luck! Just be wary that the shipping (and fees) might be costly especially with how expensive the items themselves are.
Pre-orders will be open throughout 27th August 2019 to 17th September 2019, at 12:00 (local time). The bags and scarves will be shipped out from the 2nd half of December 2019, while the watches will be leaving slightly later, from the 2nd half of February 2020.
Last week, we posted about some Three Houses merchandise releasing in Japan during August 2019. Today, Intelligent Systems revealed some additional bits and bobs that will be available during the latter half of the same month.
Tapestry – 2,800 Yen each (excluding tax)
If your walls are looking a bit barren and you’re not afraid to splash out a little, you could consider hanging a tapestry (aka wall scroll) or two. Such as these two, based on the main visual and the main characters. Both are A2 sized.
Hmm, is it me or does having an upside Claude hanging in your living room feel more surreal than usual?
Masking Tape – 800 Yen each (excluding tax)
Do you ever feel crafty or like hoarding weird stationary that you’ll never use? If the answer is “yes”, some masking tape (also known as “washi tape”) might be good for you. There are three designs available, based on the three houses. Each measures 10 m when fully rolled out.
July and onward is looking like a busy period for Fire Emblem collectors! Recently, Intelligent Systems revealed some more merchandise arriving in Japan in the coming months.
This is in addition to the Three Houses Nintendo Switch accessories, Three Houses stuff from Empty and Wave 1 of the Armory Collection.
Acrylic Stands – 1,500 Yen each (excluding tax)
If you’ve been to conventions lately, you might be familiar with these; they’re plastic 2D stands that you can proudly display. There are six designs available: male Byleth, female Byleth, Sothis, Edelgard, Dimitri and Claude.
The stands are designed so that you can place them right next to each other, like above. The characters measure roughly 120 x 75 mm, while the base is 60 x 50 mm. The expected release date is early August 2019.

Back in 2016, Good Smile Company released one of their very first Fire Emblem nendoroids–of the original Lord, Marth himself. If you missed your chance, you’re in luck as GSC have announced a re-release!
The nendoroid figure, which is based on Marth’s appearance from New Mystery of the Emblem
(his last appearance as a main character), is available to pre-order now and is scheduled to release during November 2019
For additional info and pictures, please check out the product page on GSC’s website. If that’s still not enough for you, Kahotan from GSC wrote an in-depth review (with lots and lots of pictures) on their blog back in 2016.
