Fates: Takumi and Leo Fan Books Coming to Japan

Fire Emblem Fates has been out in Japan for 3 years and, regardless of the game’s reception, its characters are still proving to be extremely popular.

Case in point, from 31st August 2018, two separate fan books dedicated to Takumi and Leo–the two younger royal brothers–will be released in Japan, published by the Nintendo Dream editorial team.

(Note: The cover and contents are subject to change.)

For reference, Leo was the highest ranking male during Nintendo Japan’s official Fates popularity poll, while Takumi scored 3rd place. Meanwhile in the international Choose Your Legends Round 2, they placed 30th and 18th among all the series’s characters.

Back to the books themselves, each comes with a set of 6 B2 size posters. The posters are double-sided and can be combined to create one life-size poster! According to the Amazon listings (Takumi | Leo), each book includes 52 pages and retails for 1,998 Yen.

Because they are fan books, the editorial team is looking for fans to submit their content. Firstly, there are a pair of questionnaires for Takumi and Leo fans to answer. A rough translation will be provided below. Entries close halfway through 23rd July.

In addition, fans are encouraged to send their artwork. Artwork should be posted to the address above in the form of a postcard. The artwork itself can be horizontal or vertical. The deadline for submissions is 27th July, so fans will need to be pretty quick!

Hmm, would they ever do versions for the little sisters…?

Serenes Forest Talent Showcase | June-mmunity Fanartist Month – Day 3 (Geminids)

Our next stop during our month long celebration of artistic talent in the Fire Emblem community features the talented Geminids, all the way from Hawaii!

The sparkles and candy are absolutely darling!

Geminds has come up with quite a few charms, such as his Halloween themed Henry and Robin, New Years themed Leo and Takumi and adorable Elise.

When your cat endorses your charms, you know they’re fine.

You’ll find him posting quite actively on his Tumblr and Twitter, and his Tictail has all of the charms above up (and others) for grabs via pre-order. They’re only available until June 15, so if you want one, definitely think fast about it!

His Indonesian themed Awakening set is no longer available, but they give you a great idea as to just how cute his art can be.

If you’d like to show support for the community, pay them a visit at their respective Etsy, Twitter or otherwise listed pages above (anything bolded can be clicked). Give them a follow or a share, or pick one of their creations up for yourself if you’re able and interested.

If you want to have your work showcased on Serenes Forest, contact me (Elieson) on our forums and I’ll do my best to feature you and your talents. Bear in mind that June will feature more of a crafts lineup, while December will be our Draw-cember event, featuring talent more akin to drawings, paintings and the like.

Warriors: Hinoka, Camilla, Leo and Takumi confirmed

Coming to you from Gamescom, here are some more character reveals for Fire Emblem Warriors, we have Camilla, Leo, Hinoka and Takumi from Fire Emblem Fates.

Interestingly enough Sakura & Elise are absent, does this mean they won’t be joining the fray? Or perhaps they are being saved for later.

Also according to the UK version of the trailer, the west is getting the game on October 20th.

Update

Nintendo UK has revealed a Limited Edition that includes the game, a 3-disk soundtrack and character art cards. Oddly, it’s missing the artbook from Japan’s equivalent Premium Box.

New Manga Starring Leo from Fire Emblem Fates

When one door closes, another door opens. Just yesterday, it was revealed that the Fire Emblem Fates manga by Yusuke Kozaki wouldn’t be coming to fruition (or at least, not in the near future)

Perhaps Mr. Kozaki was teasing us at the same time, because a new Fire Emblem Fates manga has just been announced in the latest volume of Monthly Zero Sum, although it will be illustrated by Tama Yugyoji instead.

Titled “Fire Emblem Fates: The Crown of Nibelungen”, this manga adaptation is set to focus on Leo, the youngest Nohrian prince–and one of the most popular Fates characters in Japan.

It will debut in the March edition of Monthly Zero Sum, which hits bookshelves on 28th January 2017 (in Japan).
