First teased back in February, Good Smile Company has blessed us with a first look at the Fire Emblem Fates Sakura nendoroid during today’s Summer Wonder Festival 2017.
Currently, the Sakura nendoroid is a work in progress (which should be immediately obvious since it hasn’t been painted yet), but it’s still very cute all the same.
According to the official description, Sakura will come with accessories and face plates, similar to previous nendoroids. The Elise nendoroid came with a horse, so hopefully Sakura will get something even half as good.
Because it’s still early days, a release date and a price have not been announced yet. We imagine it’ll be 2018 before it releases, since figures of this complexity can take a while to manufacture.
Right now, Fire Emblem Cipher is touring Japan with the “Go! Go! Summer Tour!” event. However, it won’t be long before attention turns to the next upcoming release, Series 10, which will be released on 21 September this year!
Entitled Crossroads, based on the Roman numeral X for ten, S10 will be our first four-colour set! It will also be the first set dedicated to characters from Thracia 776 and Fire Emblem Heroes. We’ll also see a return to characters from both Nohr and Hoshido in Fire Emblem Fates.
S10 was formally announced during the S8 prerelease livestream, and since then we’ve gotten a few sneak previews of some art and cards for the set. Take a look below for everything we know about the set so far, as well as information for pre-ordering cards.
This past Saturday, Ryota Kawade and Young hosted a pre-release livestream for Fire Emblem Cipher! Series 9 comes out in just a few days, so it was a perfect opportunity to show off new cards and give fans some tidbits of information about upcoming sets.
The release of S9 coincides with the 2nd Anniversary of Cipher, so everyone was ready to celebrate. The room was decorated, Kawade was dressed up as Eldigan, and they even shared a special cake!
The main focus of the stream was, of course, the upcoming Series 9 which releases on 22 June. The booster series, entitled Roaring Echoes, features cards and characters from Fire Emblem Echoes, Binding Blade, Hasha no Tsurugi, Path of Radiance, and Radiant Dawn. The ST Deck Lands of the Gods focuses solely on characters from Echoes.
WARNING: Some of the card images revealed in this article contain character and story spoilers for Fire Emblem Echoes. Please use caution if you have not yet finished the game and are looking to avoid spoilers.
Today, Nintendo’s presence at E3 kicked off with their E3 Spotlight, which showcased a variety of upcoming Nintendo Switch titles, including Fire Emblem Warriors as expected.
The new trailer briefly touches on the game’s story and characters. Some of this information was previously covered by Famitsu, such as the royal twins and the inclusion of Marth.
Despite the obvious tease in the debut trailer, this our the first formal confirmation that Corrin (female at least), Ryoma and Xander from Fire Emblem Fates will be appearing in the game, presumably as playable characters.
That’s about it for now, but if we’re lucky, we may yet see more of Warriors at Nintendo Treehouse Live, which runs from 13th to 15th June 2017.
