The main agenda was to discuss the upcoming Series 17: “The Advance of All Heroes”. This series breaks the usual trends of featuring a small number of factions by including not just every faction but every single game title.
Above is the official list of featured games. I won’t bother naming them all, but it’s all the mainline games from the first up to Echoes and including Heroes and Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE. Unless I missed it, Warriors is not advertised, despite having cards in the past.
Besides that, the original Cipher mascots will make an appearance in Series 17 too. Above are Emma and Shade, the first pair of mascots, in the Falcon Knight and Dark Sage classes respectively.
Also, although Three Houses isn’t a featured title (because it’s a bit too new by the time the Series 17 releases), there will be cards for it, in the form of booster box “preview” promos. It seems everyone will get 2 of the 4 cards per box.
I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend! As for me, I somehow ended up at a motorcycle festival, but that’s a story for another time and place. Anyway, I’m here to report the upcoming schedule for the rotating characters and songs on the Japanese Fire Emblem World website.
Last month, we covered the schedule from 22nd April to 26th May. From here, every single game that’s been released (that’s been developed by Intelligent Systems) has been featured at least once–some twice. My aim is to keep going until I’m bored or enough people shout at me.
Next week starts off with the second appearance of Binding Blade. The characters include the Araphen orphanage trio, a trio of promoted units (two from the Western Isles) and… Merlinus. It’s kinda like they were going for a pattern, but decided to sod it at the last minute.
Four new Laguz heroes are coming soon to Fire Emblem Heroes! Check out the Out of Gallia Preview Trailer below for your first look at Ranulf, Lethe, Mordecai, and Caineghis.
These four heroes are expanding the number and type of Beast allies available in the game. The cat laguz Ranulf and Lethe count as Cavalry units, while tiger Mordecai is Infantry and lion Caineghis is Armored. Furthermore, each unit comes with some impressive weapons and skills. Check out full skill details below.
These new heroes will be arriving with a new story chapter as well! Follow along with the Order of Heroes as they head into the Realm of the Dead.
Both the Out of Gallia banner and its accompanying paralogue will be available in just a couple days, starting on Wednesday, 10 April. This banner (and its accompanying Log-In Bonus and Orb Promo) are the last things listed on the current Event Calendar, so we don’t quite know how long it’ll last.
However, the in-game notification confirms that Haar: Black Tempest will be arriving as the next Grand Hero Battle! His battles will start up the day after the new banner is live, Thursday 11 April.
Furthermore, today’s update formally revealed that Forging Bonds: A Trust Earned, starring our new characters, will also be starting on 10 April! Check the in-game notifications for further details.
In case you missed the memo, Fire Emblem Expo is an event for fans, taking place at Zepp Tokyo in Japan. It’s not Fire Emblem‘s version of E3 by a long shot; rather, it focuses on providing fun experiences–and that includes shopping!
Conveniently, Intelligent Systems will be taking pre-orders for most of the merchandise, so you don’t need to stress out on the day of the event. Pre-ordered merchandise can be picked up at the venue or delivered to your house. Pre-orders are open until 3rd March 2019.
Tickets for the event aren’t required for pre-ordering or ordering from the event venue. Essentially, the merchandise stalls are outside of the event itself. However, stock is limited–once pre-orders run out, it’s first-come-first-serve on the day of the event.
In addition, two brand new drama CDs were announced, focusing on Blazing Blade and Radiant Dawn. These will release prior to Fire Emblem Expo, on 17th April 2019, but will also be available from the expo. For more details, please scroll to the very end (or click here).
