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
Three Houses has only been out for a few days, but we already have our first major piece of merchandise news.
Good Smile Company announced that they’ll be producing a figma version of Edelgard, the leader of the Black Eagles. Pictured is the prototype version, before it has been painted. Other Fire Emblem characters to receive figmas include Lucina and female Corrin.
This news comes from Wonder Festival 2019 (Summer), held on 28th July in Japan, where various new figures were shown off. Currently, no other details were provided, like a release date. But they did say that more details would be coming “soon”.
Although female Corrin may not be receiving an Amiibo (as far as we know anyway), that doesn’t mean that fans will be unable to own a plastic version of her.
First teased at the Summer Wonder Festival 2016, figma and nendoroid versions of female Corrin are now available to pre-order from good import/hobby sites (such as AmiAmi).
Both of the figures are produced by Good Smile Company, who are renown for creating high-quality products. Which is also evident from the price tag: 6,800 Yen for the figma and 5,200 Yen for the nendoroid.
The figma is to scale and measures 145 mm, while the nendoroid is super-deformed and measures 100 mm. As you can see from the pictures, both can be posed and include a few accessories like a dragonstone.
Speaking of which, if you order the figma directly from GSC, you can get an exclusive Omega Yato accessory.
