As promised, Intelligent Systems has updated the Fire Emblem Expo II website with additional information regarding this fan-focused event. They also revealed the key visual, which has been updated with the house leaders from Three Houses.
Similar to this summer’s event, there will be live band performances, stage dramas, art exhibitions and exclusive merchandise for sale. It will be held on 5th and 6th May 2020 at Zepp Tokyo in Japan. Tickets are currently available to purchase online until 16th December 2019 (Japan time).
For those planning to attend, there are three ticketed sessions. The first one opens at 5 pm on 5th May, the second at 12 noon on 6th May (noon session) and the third at 4 pm on 6th May (evening session). There are also three tiers of tickets (SS, S and A), which determines your seating.
As an additional incentive, SS and S ticket holders will also receive limited edition items.

On to the attractions! The first Fire Emblem Expo had a special art exhibition dedicated to Thracia 776. Next year’s expo mixes things up slightly by having two exhibitions.
In addition to today’s update for Three Houses, Nintendo and Intelligent Systems shared some general Fire Emblem news.
Firstly, at some point during 2020, Intelligent Systems will be holding the “Fire Emblem Expo II” event in Japan.
Similar to the first event, it will be a fun event for fans, featuring special stage events and live music related to the entire series. Don’t expect any major game announcements (like the rumoured next remake) to happen there.
If you’re curious, you can check out the event’s website over here. Right now, it’s just a teaser, with proper details to be added around 22nd November 2019. For now, please watch this space!
Next, the Edelgard figma that was announced earlier this year has received a fresh coat of paint–and with it, new details. The figma measures approx. 145 mm and includes the Killer Axe from her official artwork and her relic weapon Aymr.
It is expected to release in Japan during July 2020 and will retail for 8,000 Yen (not including tax). For those interested in adding the future Adrestian emperor to their collection, you can place a pre-order and/or check out additional images via the product page at Good Smile Company
Fans of older Heroes, rejoice! In a new Fire Emblem Heroes update coming some time in June, four Heroes released during Year 1 will be receiving new weapon skills and/or refinery options.
This month’s lucky Heroes are Oscar, Saizo, Kagero and Elincia. The first three can learn Loyal Greatlance, Saizo’s Star and Kagero’s Dart respectively. In addition, all three can refine their new weapons, while Elincia can refine her Amiti.
A precise date for this update was not provided, but if it’s anything like past updates, you probably don’t need to wait too long.
Also, as a reminder, the “Marital Bonds” Voting Gauntlet is now active until a few hours before the daily rollover 9th June 2019. As always, there are quests for each of the three rounds. For further details, check the in-game notifications or our earlier article.
