Merchandise: “Fire Emblem Armory Collection” Continues into Late 2021

The Fire Emblem Armory Collection, which started in 2019, is adding some new products, all scheduled to release before the end of 2021.

Firstly, there will be two “Fire Emblem Armory Collection Mini” sets, similar to the Three Houses set available via FE Expo II (and which can still be purchased via IS’s web store).

One of them will feature the divine weapons wielded by Sigurd, Quan and Eldigan from Genealogy of the Holy War: the divine Tyrfing, earthly Gae Bolg and dark Mystletainn.

It’ll be releasing on September 2021, priced at 4,400 Yen (including tax), and is now available to pre-order.

The other will feature the ultimate weapons wielded by Lyn, Eliwood and Hector from Blazing Blade: the Sol Katti, Durandal and Armads. If you don’t recognise the Sol Katti, the one in FE Heroes is based on its Awakening incarnation.

It’ll be released on October 2021, also priced at 4,400 Yen (with tax).

Specifications (both)

  • Length: Approx 65 mm
  • Box: Approx 220 x 90 x 20 mm
  • Materials: Zinc alloy body and stainless steel/copper parts

Last but not least, the Fire Emblem from Awakening will be released as part of the “Fire Emblem Armory Collection” (not mini) on November 2021, again priced at 4,400 Yen (with tax).

It’ll be joining the Fire Emblem (Binding Shield) from Mystery of the Emblem, which was exclusively given to SS ticket holders for the first FE Expo (and the predecessor of the Armory Collection).

Specifications

  • Size: Approx 48 x 59 mm
  • Box: Approx 90 x 90 x 20 mm
  • Materials: Zinc alloy body and stainless steel/copper parts

Heroes: Enduring Legacy banner brings Genealogy of the Holy War favorites to the fray

It’s that time again, Summoners. The next batch of new Heroes is upon us, in the Judgral-themed (Genealogy of the Holy War) Enduring Legacy banner that drops in just two days.

We get to see some upgrades to the Duel skills this time around, specifically in R Duel Infantry and B Duel Flying 4, both of which grant higher score caps and also some additional stats beyond HP +5. We also have a Deck Swabber equivalent in the Unbound Blade+ sword, and the first omni-phase brave weapon with Lex’s PRF Goddess Axe. What’s more, is that Lex is the 4* Focus unit, so Summoners may have a stellar opportunity to add a mighty unit to their Green Axe Cav pool.

Not only that, but we see in the story continuation, the appearance of one of the characters teased in the Book V video, Dagr, who joins the battle with their Axe and maybe flies? As for a character we don’t see, we will soon, in the upcoming Grand Hero Battle featuring Díthorba: Cutting Knight, on February 17 at the daily reset. She’s not a very well known character, so I’ll be interested to see how she is portrayed in FEH.

Finally, this banner will feature the Spark bonus (fitting, given Azelle’s weapon) on 40 summons, so Summoners are guaranteed to acquire a character of their choice.

This banner will kick off on February 15 at 11p PT (Feb 16 for the rest of us across the continental US and beyond).

Cipher: Spring 2019 Livestream (S17 reveals, S18 artwork and S19 titles) & Twitter Reveals

On 25th May, the Fire Emblem Cipher team held their Spring 2019 livestream–the second seasonal one of the year. The hosts were Ryota Kawade, Young, and Eri Suzuki.

Note: Images were taken from @kizuna_fecipher.

The main agenda was to discuss the upcoming Series 17: “The Advance of All Heroes”. This series breaks the usual trends of featuring a small number of factions by including not just every faction but every single game title.

Above is the official list of featured games. I won’t bother naming them all, but it’s all the mainline games from the first up to Echoes and including Heroes and Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE. Unless I missed it, Warriors is not advertised, despite having cards in the past.

Besides that, the original Cipher mascots will make an appearance in Series 17 too. Above are Emma and Shade, the first pair of mascots, in the Falcon Knight and Dark Sage classes respectively.

Also, although Three Houses isn’t a featured title (because it’s a bit too new by the time the Series 17 releases), there will be cards for it, in the form of booster box “preview” promos. It seems everyone will get 2 of the 4 cards per box.
