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…?
