As promised, during today’s Cipher pre-release livestream, the Fire Emblem team shared concrete details about the recently announced “Fire Emblem Expo” event.
Information was relayed via Tsutomu Kitanishi, who arrived dressed in bright red. To recap, “Fire Emblem Expo” will be held at Zepp Tokyo in Japan, during 4th May 2019. It’s described as a “special one-night only Fire Emblem event” and is being run by Intelligent Systems.
Before anyone gets too excited, it looks to be a fun Fire Emblem event for fans, so there probably won’t be any ground-breaking announcements or anything important that’s related to Three Houses. More details about the event will be revealed later on, but we’d keep your expectations low for now.
The first main attraction is a live concert where numerous Fire Emblem songs will be performed. A list of songs can be found at the bottom of this page.
Providing the vocals will be Kawamura Yumi, a popular game music singer. Yū Kobayashi, the Japanese voice actress for Lucina, will also be there.
Update: There will be a CD featuring the songs performed at the concert, which is planned for a Spring 2019 release.
It seems the Fire Emblem piano music CD was a hit, because a second music CD has been announced, dubbed “Session ~Flower of Enchantment~”. This time, a larger variety of instruments will feature, including guitar, bass, drum, keyboard and saxophone.
The new CD contains 15 tracks from the very first game all the way up to Shadows of Valentia–and even Heroes sneaks in an appearance. It will release on 28th March 2018 and cost 3,200 Yen (including tax).
On 12th March 2017 (tomorrow at the time of this post), there will be a special concert to celebrate the recently released Fire Emblem Music Collection: Piano ~Faith & Engagement~ music CD.
As we reported last time, event-goers will have the chance to purchase exclusive Fire Emblem merchandise at the venue, in a similar manner to the 25th Anniversary Concerts back in 2016.
During today’s very eventful Cipher Series 8 pre-release livestream (which you can expect a detailed report from our Cipher expert Kirie later on), the hosts showed off some of this merchandise.
Additionally, the official website for the CD and concerts has added a full list of the available merchandise, which you can find below.
Just when you thought 2016 had no more news to offer, Nintendo and Intelligent Systems has announced a new Fire Emblem piano music CD and live concerts to celebrate its release.
The “Fire Emblem Music Collection: Piano ~Faith & Engagement~” CD contains 16 tracks from throughout the series, composed and performed by the up-and-coming female pianist Keiko.
The CD will cost 3,200 Yen (including tax) and is scheduled for release on 22nd February 2017 in Japan. Fortunately, the rest of us can order it from import stores such as CD Japan.
