From the Fire Emblem series comes the third figure in a new series of figures made by the developer of the series, INTELLIGENT SYSTEMS!
From the first Fire Emblem game “Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon & the Blade of Light” comes a 1/7th scale figure of the protagonist, Marth! Based on a special illustration by Daisuke Izuka, character designer of “Fire Emblem: New Mystery of the Emblem”, the figure features Marth in a dignified pose leading his army and inspiring his allies. The Hero-King’s gallant appearance has been brought to life in stunning detail. Be sure to add him to your collection!
The Marth scale figure is scheduled for a release in July 2022 at a suggested price of ¥20,900. Pre-orders for it are open on the Fire Emblem Online Shop now until October 27, 2021, and will be available to purchase at other vendors.
Today is a rather historic moment for the Fire Emblem series. 30 years after its original release, the NES version of Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light is now available in English via the Nintendo Switch eShop!
This newly translated version of the game celebrates 30 years of Fire Emblem, starting with the original launch on 20th April 1990. A special 30th Anniversary Edition was also up for pre-order in North America, although you had to be pretty fast and lucky to snag one up.
Please note that the English version of Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light will be discontinued after 31st March 2021. Similar to Super Mario 3D All Stars. We’re not quite sure why Nintendo chose to do this, but that’s how it is.
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.
