Nintendo and FE Heroes have announced a celebration video, celebrating 30 years of Fire Emblem, featuring discussions with 7 prominent voice actors from the games.
The full video, titled Fire Emblem Castle Conversations, will be available from 8th February 2021, at 3 pm (UTC), 7 am (PT) and 10 am (ET).
The voice actors who will appear in the video are:
Cherami Leigh (Caeda, Mae and Rhea)
Chris Hackney (Boey, Quan and Dimitri)
Billy Kametz (Ferdinand von Aegir)
Christian La Monte (Seliph, Roderick and Ignatz)
Patrick Seitz (Fehnix)
Xanthe Huynh (Eir and Marianne)
Ray Chase (Roy, Alfonse and Gaius)
By the way, it seems “Castle Conversations” is a direct parallel of the Japanese Roundtable videos, the second of which was recently announced. As such, don’t expect any game-related news from the video when it’s released.
Today is a rather historic moment for the Fire Emblem series. 30 years after its original release, the NES version of Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light is now available in English via the Nintendo Switch eShop!
This newly translated version of the game celebrates 30 years of Fire Emblem, starting with the original launch on 20th April 1990. A special 30th Anniversary Edition was also up for pre-order in North America, although you had to be pretty fast and lucky to snag one up.
Please note that the English version of Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light will be discontinued after 31st March 2021. Similar to Super Mario 3D All Stars. We’re not quite sure why Nintendo chose to do this, but that’s how it is.
To celebrate both the 1 and a half year anniversary of Dragalia Lost and the milestone 30th anniversary of the Fire Emblem series, Dragalia Lost is re-running last year’s Fire Emblem Heroes crossover event.
For the occasion, the Dragalia Lost team shared a cool piece of artwork of pantless, er, classic Marth posing with the Dragalia cast. For those who don’t know the significance, this artwork is a homage to the cover artwork of the very first Fire Emblem game!
Anyway, the FE Heroes re-run will be available until Dragalia’s daily rollover on 12th May 2020 (1 hour before FE Heroes). If you’re interested in learning about the event, please check our article from last year. However, please note that there are a few changes to the event format (as well as the meta).
Most notably, the “Alberian Front” quests, where you protect a castle gate from waves of reinforcements (based on the defense maps in FE) can only be played solo and not in co-op.
For reference, this is what The Alberian Front used to be like. Special thanks to our Prince Of Iris for capturing the footage and TheVinceKnight for carrying our butts! This change streamlinesthe experience, but it can get extremely hectic on Lunatic as you can’t split up to handle multiple threats.
Additionally, there will be a second FE Heroes crossover event in late April. Details are currently scarce, although we do know that Sharena can be obtained as a free character. As soon as we learn more, we’ll be right back!
A few things today to go through with today’s FE Heroes.news update. First off, a New Heroes banner titled “Journey Begins” featuring Fates characters Rinkah, Forrest, Lilith, and Midori is live, and is also accompanied with a Forging Bonds event!
If you’re dead-set on acquiring a particular Hero from this new banner, you can free pull any one focus unit once you have made 40 summons in the banner. If you are doing full summons along with all 4 tickets and the initial free first summon, this means you can get a copy of any unit you want with 135 Orbs, guaranteed.
The new banner will finish on the 30th of April 6:59am UTC while the Forging Bonds event ends on the 22nd of April 6:59am UTC.
