Way back in November 2017, Fire Emblem Heroes started releasing a weekly comic known as “A Day in the Life of Heroes” (or some variant) on their website, although only in Japanese. Fast forward nearly two years and a physical version of the comic will be available from 26th August 2019.
Currently there are no official details, although you can find the cover illustration via its listing on Amazon Japan. There’s also a tweet from Itagaki Hako–one of the three artists who contributes to the weekly comic–that suggests it’s what we think it is (a physical release).
Like the original comic, the physical version will only be available in Japanese. Still, it’d nice to have the comic in your actual hands–and you can always read the translations by Kirokan or Coolmanio!
With Three Houses out in the wild now, the Fire Emblem Cipher team has begun sharing its own news. The next set, Series 18, features cards and characters from the new game, along with Awakening and The Sacred Stones. In celebration of the upcoming set, Cipher will be hosting their Cipher Summer Livestream on 24 August!
Kubocchan will be hosting for the first time, along with Cipher Producer Ryota Kawade. Voice Actors Kaito Ishikawa (Dimitri) and Hibiku Yamamura (Rinea and Shade) will also join in as guests. You can check out details and bookmark the stream links on the official site here.
Other Cipher news has also begun to trickle in as the release date gets closer. As usual, four sets of sleeves will also be coming out along with the set, featuring new artwork. The sleeves for S18 feature Male Byleth, Edelgard, Tharja, and L’Arachel.
You can also see larger versions of the sleeves in this sample-stamped image here. If you’re interested in pre-ordering them, they’re already up on AmiAmi.
A new advertisement has also revealed our first S18 cards! Check out the ad image blow. Edelgard on the left is a new card, likely from the S18 Starter Deck. Dimitri and Claude are the same as their earlier promo cards, while Robin and Ephraim are also new.
We should start getting official card reveals in just a couple weeks, shortly before the Spring Livestream airs. We’ll begin our weekly articles again once the cards start coming, so keep your eyes open!
Three Houses has only been out for a few days, but we already have our first major piece of merchandise news.
Good Smile Company announced that they’ll be producing a figma version of Edelgard, the leader of the Black Eagles. Pictured is the prototype version, before it has been painted. Other Fire Emblem characters to receive figmas include Lucina and female Corrin.
This news comes from Wonder Festival 2019 (Summer), held on 28th July in Japan, where various new figures were shown off. Currently, no other details were provided, like a release date. But they did say that more details would be coming “soon”.
Last week, we posted about some Three Houses merchandise releasing in Japan during August 2019. Today, Intelligent Systems revealed some additional bits and bobs that will be available during the latter half of the same month.
Tapestry – 2,800 Yen each (excluding tax)
If your walls are looking a bit barren and you’re not afraid to splash out a little, you could consider hanging a tapestry (aka wall scroll) or two. Such as these two, based on the main visual and the main characters. Both are A2 sized.
Hmm, is it me or does having an upside Claude hanging in your living room feel more surreal than usual?
Masking Tape – 800 Yen each (excluding tax)
Do you ever feel crafty or like hoarding weird stationary that you’ll never use? If the answer is “yes”, some masking tape (also known as “washi tape”) might be good for you. There are three designs available, based on the three houses. Each measures 10 m when fully rolled out.
