This week, an official soundtrack for Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia was announced! It includes five CDs packed in a three-sided digipack and a bunch of other goodies, too. Front and center on the digipack is some gorgeous new artwork of Alm and Celica by the Echoes official artist, Hidari.
The four audio CDs contain over five hours worth of music, including music only found in DLC, music from the original Gaiden, and the Fire Emblem Cipher main theme. The fifth CD is a Data CD containing .mp3 files for you to listen to digitally and an HD version of the title movie. Other perks include:
- A 24-page full colour booklet containing development tales from the games’ composers.
- Five postcards with artwork of Alm and Celica
- Stickers of various Echoes characters
- An Alm Cipher promotional card
The OST comes out on 25 October with an MSRP of ¥5,300. International pre-orders are currently up on CDJapan and Amazon Japan. A full track-list can be found below.
We’re another week closer to the release of S10 of Fire Emblem Cipher! This means we’ve had another few days worth of twitter reveals, culminating in this SR+ card for Alfonse from Fire Emblem Heroes! The card is signed by his voice actor, Tatsuhisa Suzuki. Suzuki also voiced Berkut in Fire Emblem Echoes and Ranulf in Radiant Dawn.
The other games in the set also got some love this week, such as with these double reveals for Thracia 776. Both Seti and Shiva earned themselves and N card and a promoted R foil card. This is Seti’s second appearance in Cipher; he also received a couple cards in S8 as part of the second generation of Genealogy of the Holy War.
The reveals wrap up with two more children from Fire Emblem Fates, an HN card for Forrest and an R card for Asugi. Forrest’s card artwork also includes a backdrop of Leo, typing into the set’s ‘Heirs of Fates’ theme.
Another week has brought us another five days worth of daily Fire Emblem Cipher reveals from @FEcipher! This week’s reveals feature many R+ cards, such as this lovely joined-art of Shigure and Azura from Fates. These cards have different art than their regular Rs, which we haven’t yet seen.
Additional R+ reveals include an alternate art for Mareeta from Thracia 776, which you can see her along with her regular art R. The final R+ is a signed card for Bruno from Fire Emblem Heroes, shown here along with his Cost 1 N card.
Aside from R+ cards, our second Thracia SR this set makes an appearance, Finn! The final reveal of the week is an HN card for Soleil from Fates.
Coming to you from Gamescom, here are some more character reveals for Fire Emblem Warriors, we have Camilla, Leo, Hinoka and Takumi from Fire Emblem Fates.
Interestingly enough Sakura & Elise are absent, does this mean they won’t be joining the fray? Or perhaps they are being saved for later.
Also according to the UK version of the trailer, the west is getting the game on October 20th.
Nintendo UK has revealed a Limited Edition that includes the game, a 3-disk soundtrack and character art cards. Oddly, it’s missing the artbook from Japan’s equivalent Premium Box.
