Fire Emblem Expo II: Music Samples & Merchandise

Intelligent Systems has updated the Fire Emblem Expo II website with some additional details. If you missed the expo’s announcement, we covered it in an earlier article. The main thing to know is that the expo will be held on 5th and 6th May in Japan.

Firstly, a number of music samples have been added, for the songs that will play during the live concert. Some of these songs will be included in the upcoming Fire Emblem Premium Arrange II soundtrack, releasing on 19th February.

To listen to the samples, scroll down towards the middle of the Stage section, then press the “play” buttons. Or use our playlist below:

Update: Corrected the name of sample track 10.

Next, the Merchandise section has been updated with all the glorious things you can purchase at the expo. To make things easier, there are two ways to purchase. One, you can order the items online prior to the event. Two, you can buy them in person during the event.

Online orders will be accepted between now and 29th February, via Intelligent System’s online store. Everything that can be purchased from the expo can be ordered online, with the exception of food items. Items can only be shipped within Japan.

Please continue for the goods!

Awakening and Three Houses Drama CDs Releasing 18th March!

Here’s something a bit out of the blue. Today, Intelligent Systems revealed a pair of new drama CDs–one for Awakening and one for Three Houses. Both will be released in Japan on 18th March 2020.

These drama CDs are actually the 3rd and 4th in the “Fire Emblem Extra Drama CD” series. Last year, they released similar drama CDs for Blazing Blade and Radiant Dawn.

For those unsure what drama CDs are, they’re akin to short radio dramas, where you listen to a story being acted out. In this case, they’re side-stories featuring a tight cast of characters.

Of note, the Gatekeeper appears in the Three Houses drama CD!

Vestaria Saga I: War of the Scions English Version Now Out & Soundtrack News!

A heads up for strategy RPG fans (that should be you, right?). The English version of Vestaria Saga I: War of the Scions is now available to purchase on Steam. This is the game that Mr. Kaga–“father” of Fire Emblem–and his team created in their spare time.

By this point, we probably don’t need to tell you more about the game. But if you’re unsure, feel free to browse through our news archives.

In addition, the publishers have released Vestaria Saga I Soundtrack PIANO ARRANGEMENT & 8-BIT MUSIC VERSION, which is a selection of 11 8-bit arrangements from the CD plus 5 brand new piano arrangements and their original versions. For a total of 21 tracks.

This can be purchased as a bundle with the game or separately as DLC. However, you must own the game to purchase it. Also, the piano arrangements (and original versions) are not available yet and will be added once they’re completed.

On their Twitter account, Mr. Saitoh, who composed for the game (as well as Kaga’s previous game, Berwick Saga), mentions that he’s up for composing more tracks if there’s enough demand.

Furthermore, for the first time, the Vestaria Saga I Original Soundtrack has been released outside of Japan! The soundtrack contains 70 tracks from the game. Also, this version will come with a 4-page English booklet.

You can order the soundtrack internationally via this page. It retails for 3,400 Yen.

Thanks to @theprinceofiris for the heads up!
