Fates: Sakura Nendoroid Revealed at Winter WonFes 2017

At Winter Wonder Festival 2017, held in Japan today, Good Smile Company teased a nendoroid figure of Sakura, the youngest Hoshidan sibling from Fire Emblem Fates.

She will be following in the footsteps of female Corrin and Elise, the former who is receiving a nendoroid figure in August 2017 and the latter whose figure was released back in late 2016.

It’s quite surprising for Sakura to join the gang, since she was the least popular royal in Japan (where the nendoroid is being marketed) based on the official website poll.

That said, she didn’t perform too badly in the recent Choose Your Legends global poll, securing a place in the Top 20 females from throughout the series.

So it wasn’t 100% guaranteed that she would be getting a figure, although of course I’m super glad that she is!

Cipher S8 Weekly Recap: First Daily Reveals & Livestream Info

After a rather long break in Fire Emblem Cipher news, we’ve now finally started to see daily reveals for Series 8 pop up on the @FECipher Twitter account. This week’s first reveal was the unpromoted versions of our two headliner lords: Chrom from Awakening and Seliph from Genealogy of the Holy War.

The next reveal was rather unique: three variant cards featuring different types of Risen. Each card has a different weapon and class, with the Mercenary Risen wielding a sword, Fighter Risen with an axe, and Soldier Risen with a lance. However, the text on each card is the same and they function the same in game.
