Not to be outdone by Nintendo Japan sharing the longer version of Three Houses‘s main theme song, the Western Nintendo branches just released their version with English lyrics.
Nintendo of Europe mentions
that this song will be available in the Sound Selection USB that comes with their limited edition. Considering it’s also available in Japan’s soundtrack CD, it’s nigh guaranteed to be included in the North American soundtrack too.
If you’re interested, some of our forum members–Michelaar, Enduin and SageOfAnys–all worked independently to try and transcribe the lyrics. You can compare them with the translated Japanese lyrics as well.
The legendary “Cavalier Duo” strikes again! Fire Emblem composers Hiroki Morishita and Takeru Kanazaki have once again put together a stellar album based on their Cipher Festival performances. This Galeforce CD contains a selection of songs from throughout the Fire Emblem series performed by the duo.
Unfortunately for international fans, the Galeforce CD was only available at Comiket 95 this past December. However, I was able to get my hands on a copy thanks to a friend in Japan. Scroll on down below for some more photos and information. You can also to listen to the tracks for yourself!
The Cavalier Duo
The Cavalier Duo is made up of two composers, Hiroki Morishita as the Red Cavalier, and Takeru Kanazaki as the Green. Both have been working as part of the Fire Emblem music team for a number of years.
The pair worked together on the music for Fates. Additionally, Morishita worked on Awakening and Heroes, while Kanazaki was involved with the music for Echoes.
Here’s something that might be interesting for music fans! On 23rd January 2019, Renka–the Japanese singer for “Lost in Thoughts All Alone” (the signature song of Fates)–will be releasing her very first album.
Known as “Hoshi no habatakuyoruwa”, which loosely translates to the “The Fluttering Night of Stars”, this album includes 12 tracks since her original debut back in 2015, when she first sang the Japanese version of “Lost in Thoughts All Alone”.
Of course, that particular song is among the 12 tracks. In addition, there’s a 13th bonus track that’s a new version of “Lost in Thoughts Alone” performed together with Lynn, Azura’s Japanese voice actress.
The album itself will retail for 3,000 Yen (plus tax). There’s also a special edition going for 3,700 Yen (plus tax), which includes a “3rd anniversary live voice” DVD with 9 music tracks (“Lost in Thoughts All Alone” not among them).
