Echoes: “Foreign Skies, Daybreak Forest” Drama CD Translation

Last year, Intelligent Systems released the first (and currently only) drama CD for Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, “Foreign Skies, Daybreak Forest”. Drama CDs rarely leave Japan–and this time was no different.

Thankfully, garmmy, who recently translated a roundtable discussion focused on Genealogy of the Holy War, has made it their mission to translate the contents of the drama CD. You can find the full translation on their blog.

As a reminder and for those unaware, “Foreign Skies, Daybreak Forest” is an original story that takes place near the beginning of Act 4, along Alm’s route. We advise only reading the translation once you’ve crossed Rigel Forest or thereabouts.

By the way, if you don’t know what a drama CD is, they’re similar to audio books. So you’ll listen to spoken dialogue, often with background music and sound effects. Essentially, you’re listening to–rather than watching–an anime episode. The translation provided is in the form of a script.

Echoes: Drama CD “Foreign Skies; Daybreak Forest” Announced

A year after the game’s release, a new drama CD for Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, dubbed “Foreign Skies; Daybreak Forest”, will be released in Japan on 17th August 2018.

Fire Emblem isn’t new when it comes to drama CDs, with Awakening and Fates receiving a bunch of them. For those unsure, drama CDs are basically audio CDs and they usually feature side stories.

Here’s the translated description from the drama CD’s official site.

Valentia Year 401

Chancellor Desaix has been defeated and Zofia Castle has been reclaimed.

The Deliverance led by Alm crushed General Berkut at Rigel’s borders and has started to advance into the Rigelian Empire.

As the march into enemy territory is progressing smoothly, trouble breaks out within the Kingdom of Zofia.

Clive, a key member of the Deliverance, sorties a part of the Deliverance to resolve the situation.

During the march, Alm discovers a village that has been converted into an imperial base, and prompted by Lukas, must make a terrible decision whether to burn down the village—

As soon as Alm entered the empire, somebody was waiting for him to step foot in Rigel Forest…

Authored by the development staff, an original story encompassing a whopping 90 minutes! Alm’s inner conflict, Lukas’s anger, Forsyth’s anguish, Python’s chivalry, and Faye and Silque’s girl talk!? This is an original drama CD that occurs during Act 4, when the Deliverance spend several days in Rigel Forest.

The bonus track “The Voice Calling for You” is a vocal track included for the first time! This previously unheard song that tells another ending will soon come to light…!
