Fire Emblem World: Daily Characters & Weekly Songs Round 7

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.

1st – 7th July: The Sacred Stones

Featured song: Follow Me!

Leading July is L’Arachel and her two cronies. After that, we have the Christmas Cavaliers, then the Caer Pelyn duo.

Cipher: Spring 2019 Livestream (S17 reveals, S18 artwork and S19 titles) & Twitter Reveals

On 25th May, the Fire Emblem Cipher team held their Spring 2019 livestream–the second seasonal one of the year. The hosts were Ryota Kawade, Young, and Eri Suzuki.

Note: Images were taken from @kizuna_fecipher.

The main agenda was to discuss the upcoming Series 17: “The Advance of All Heroes”. This series breaks the usual trends of featuring a small number of factions by including not just every faction but every single game title.

Above is the official list of featured games. I won’t bother naming them all, but it’s all the mainline games from the first up to Echoes and including Heroes and Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE. Unless I missed it, Warriors is not advertised, despite having cards in the past.

Besides that, the original Cipher mascots will make an appearance in Series 17 too. Above are Emma and Shade, the first pair of mascots, in the Falcon Knight and Dark Sage classes respectively.

Also, although Three Houses isn’t a featured title (because it’s a bit too new by the time the Series 17 releases), there will be cards for it, in the form of booster box “preview” promos. It seems everyone will get 2 of the 4 cards per box.

Fire Emblem Expo Merchandise + New Drama CDs

During today’s Cipher live-stream, the hosts showed off some new Fire Emblem merchandise for sale at the Fire Emblem Expo event on 4th May 2019.

In case you missed the memo, Fire Emblem Expo is an event for fans, taking place at Zepp Tokyo in Japan. It’s not Fire Emblem‘s version of E3 by a long shot; rather, it focuses on providing fun experiences–and that includes shopping!

Conveniently, Intelligent Systems will be taking pre-orders for most of the merchandise, so you don’t need to stress out on the day of the event. Pre-ordered merchandise can be picked up at the venue or delivered to your house. Pre-orders are open until 3rd March 2019.

Tickets for the event aren’t required for pre-ordering or ordering from the event venue. Essentially, the merchandise stalls are outside of the event itself. However, stock is limited–once pre-orders run out, it’s first-come-first-serve on the day of the event.

In addition, two brand new drama CDs were announced, focusing on Blazing Blade and Radiant Dawn. These will release prior to Fire Emblem Expo, on 17th April 2019, but will also be available from the expo. For more details, please scroll to the very end (or click here).

Now, on to the goodies…
