On 13th February, the Fire Emblem Cipher team held their seventh Nicovideo live presentation to share news about upcoming expansions and other Cipher-related news.
Midori and Ike’s voice actors (middle) join the stage.
I was away at the time, so special thanks to Kirie and Hardin for providing all of the images and details in this article.
The event opened with news regarding the upcoming Series 4, which very roughly translates “Shimmering Illusions” and features cards from Mystery of the Emblem, Awakening and Genei Ibun Roku #FE.
Like the previous two expansions, those who purchase a Series 4 booster box will receive a pack of exclusive sleeves, from two possible designs.
Japan has had Fire Emblem if on shelves for months now. It’s only fitting that a discount would climb out from the woodwork.
Nintendo recently posted a tweet, advertising a 50% discount on purchase of additional routes until February 29. This applies to all three, so if you own the Japanese version of one, you can complete your Fire Emblem scenario collection without too much of a dent to your wallet.
Meanwhile, Genei Ibun Roku #FE illustrator toi8 posted a tweet today advertising their new artbook.
This artbook is set to release on February 26, for ¥ 3,780. You can pre-order it on Amazon Japan, or on Kadokawa
You read that right; two Fire Emblem games are featured in today’s spotlight.
For the main news, Genei Ibun Roku #FE has not only given us some new artwork via toi8, but was officially released in Japan today!
Streamers are already taking to Twitch, such as BurningGravity and Hamayama, so if you want to check out the game with them, give them a watch and follow!
And if you thought I was only going to let you all know about GIR#FE news, you’re sorely mistaken. GameXplain and IGN have given three videos to analyze while playing them themselves.
While Serenes Forest’s localization team has been relatively spot-on with the translations for various names and weapons, a few names and terms have come out of left field, so to speak. Here’s a list I’ve compiled of every bit of information sans flat story dialogue.
With the upcoming release of two Fire Emblem games (Genei Ibun Roku #FE in Japan, and Fates in the US), it’s no surprise that some teaser videos of early gameplay would be released. GameXplain managed to get their hands on the English version of Fire Emblem Fates and was kind enough to post roughly 15 minutes of footage from the game’s early stages, bringing us to the Chapter 6 decision.
Voice acting can be heard for Male!Corrin, Yukimura, Mikoto, Hinoka, Azura, Takumi, Sakura, Ryoma, Kaze and Rinkah, Xander, Camilla, Leo, Elise, Garon and Sumiragi (all of these names translated into English as you see above, of course). However, that’s not all we’re privy to.
