Just a very quick and minor update. The schedule for the rotating characters and songs on the Japanese Fire Emblem World website has been changed slightly. Next week will be dedicated to Three Houses, presumably to commemorate the game’s upcoming release.
As a result, all the featured games from 22nd July (as per the original schedule) will be delayed by 1 week. Anyway, it’s really cool that they’re doing this; I was a tad disappointed when it seemed like they wouldn’t feature Three Houses during its launch week.
Unsurprisingly, we have the three house leaders, both versions of Byleth, and Sothis. Plus the Death Knight. For the record, those 7–along with the Flame Emperor–are the only known characters with official artwork (rather than simply a portrait). Not counting the older versions of the house leaders.
You may recall that in the Japanese version, Byleth’s name is spelled slightly differently, depending on their gender. It seems their names may be “Beret” and “Beres” internally. That said, there have been some wonky filenames in the past (like Caeda being named “Sedgar” through all her incarnations), so perhaps we shouldn’t read into it too much.
Welcome to another relaxing Sunday article, where we’ll cover the upcoming schedule for the rotating characters and songs on the Japanese Fire Emblem World website. Last month, we listed the schedule from 27th May to 30th June.
This time, we have 7 week’s worth of data. The selection of games is pretty solid as well, with reps from Archanea, Jugdral, Elibe, Magvel, Ylisse and wherever the heck Fates takes place. Three Houses will be released during this time period, but it’s unlikely the game will be featured until August, at the earliest.
I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend! As for me, I somehow ended up at a motorcycle festival, but that’s a story for another time and place. Anyway, I’m here to report the upcoming schedule for the rotating characters and songs on the Japanese Fire Emblem World website.
Last month, we covered the schedule from 22nd April to 26th May. From here, every single game that’s been released (that’s been developed by Intelligent Systems) has been featured at least once–some twice. My aim is to keep going until I’m bored or enough people shout at me.
Next week starts off with the second appearance of Binding Blade. The characters include the Araphen orphanage trio, a trio of promoted units (two from the Western Isles) and… Merlinus. It’s kinda like they were going for a pattern, but decided to sod it at the last minute.
Those who have played Fire Emblem Heroes or have some familiarity with it (or similar mobile titles) should know what a “whale” is. Basically a big, big spender.
Amusingly, an actual whale–as in the sea mammal–can be spotted in one of the Fire Emblem games… Specifically Fire Emblem Fates.
I was tipped off by @anasofiadeandat, who commented about seeing an unidentified sea creature in their My Castle. Being the curious sort, I immediately set off to investigate. Apparently, they saw it in the Nestrian-style castle, which makes sense as it’s surrounded by water.
However this wasn’t the only sighting. Around 2 years ago, a video of this creature was posted by succboi43 on YouTube. The video is a bit blurry and shaky, but you can clearly see something big, moving purposefully, in the water.
