Marth Nendoroid Re-release Coming November 2019

Back in 2016, Good Smile Company released one of their very first Fire Emblem nendoroids–of the original Lord, Marth himself. If you missed your chance, you’re in luck as GSC have announced a re-release!

The nendoroid figure, which is based on Marth’s appearance from New Mystery of the Emblem (his last appearance as a main character), is available to pre-order now and is scheduled to release during November 2019.

For additional info and pictures, please check out the product page on GSC’s website. If that’s still not enough for you, Kahotan from GSC wrote an in-depth review (with lots and lots of pictures) on their blog back in 2016.

FE Expo: New San-ei Character Plush & Armory Collection Revealed

Today, the Fire Emblem Expo event was held in Japan. For those who missed the news earlier, this was a fan event with various fun activities like a live concert, stage drama and the chance to bag some exclusive merchandise.

If you were expecting some big news from the event, well, I’m not sure what to tell you. But there was a nice surprise for fans who attended, as two new lines of merchandise releasing later this year were shown on display.

San-ei Character Plush

San-ei, who are renowned for producing quality plush toys for various Nintendo properties (such as Super Mario and Pokémon), will be selling plush versions of Marth, Roy, Ike, Lucina and female Corrin from late July.

Fire Emblem Armory Collection

I dunno about you, but the Fire Emblem series has some pretty cool weapons. At some point in 2019, fans can own miniature versions of Marth’s Falchion, Roy’s Binding Blade, Ike’s Ragnell, Chrom’s Sealed Falchion and (female) Corrin’s Yato.

Japan: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light Coming to Nintendo Switch Online

Nintendo has recently announced the upcoming NES/Famicom games to be available for Nintendo Switch Online subscribers. While the West get Kid Icarus and Star Tropics. Japan gets Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light, and the Konami arcade game, Yie Ar Kung-Fu.

Nintendo Switch owners with Japanese accounts should be able to access the game if they wish to try it out. Of course, a subscription to Nintendo’s Online Service is required (although, if it’s your first time, you can also apply for a 7-day trial). Switch games are not region locked.

Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light is the very first Fire Emblem game starring Marth, as he attempts to reclaim kingdom, honor, his heirloom–the Falchion–and rescue his sister.

It laid the foundation of many common themes, archetypes and traditions still present in the series to this very day. While rough and kind of clunky by today’s standards it still holds a significant place in the franchise’s history.

This will be the fourth time the game has been re-released, Japan received the game on October 20th 2009 for the Wii Virtual Console, August 1st 2012 on the 3DS and finally the Wii U in June 4th 2014.

It will be available on the Famicom service from March 13th 2019.

Beyond that, there can be challenged not one, but two Legendary Hero maps. There is a new Legendary Hero map for Marth, Hero-King, and another for Legendary Hero Robin: Fell Vessel. Both are specifically designed specifically to challenge the best Summoners, and reward them with orbs upon completion.

What’s new this time around is the new Abyssal difficulty, unlocked after completing the Infernal difficulty version of the map. Abyssal, when completed, will reward Summoners with Golden versions of some popular accessories.
