Echoes: Drama CD “Foreign Skies; Daybreak Forest” Announced

A year after the game’s release, a new drama CD for Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, dubbed “Foreign Skies; Daybreak Forest”, will be released in Japan on 17th August 2018.

Fire Emblem isn’t new when it comes to drama CDs, with Awakening and Fates receiving a bunch of them. For those unsure, drama CDs are basically audio CDs and they usually feature side stories.

Here’s the translated description from the drama CD’s official site.

Valentia Year 401

Chancellor Desaix has been defeated and Zofia Castle has been reclaimed.

The Deliverance led by Alm crushed General Berkut at Rigel’s borders and has started to advance into the Rigelian Empire.

As the march into enemy territory is progressing smoothly, trouble breaks out within the Kingdom of Zofia.

Clive, a key member of the Deliverance, sorties a part of the Deliverance to resolve the situation.

During the march, Alm discovers a village that has been converted into an imperial base, and prompted by Lukas, must make a terrible decision whether to burn down the village—

As soon as Alm entered the empire, somebody was waiting for him to step foot in Rigel Forest…

Authored by the development staff, an original story encompassing a whopping 90 minutes! Alm’s inner conflict, Lukas’s anger, Forsyth’s anguish, Python’s chivalry, and Faye and Silque’s girl talk!? This is an original drama CD that occurs during Act 4, when the Deliverance spend several days in Rigel Forest.

The bonus track “The Voice Calling for You” is a vocal track included for the first time! This previously unheard song that tells another ending will soon come to light…!
