Vestaria Saga I: War of the Scions English Version Now Out & Soundtrack News!

A heads up for strategy RPG fans (that should be you, right?). The English version of Vestaria Saga I: War of the Scions is now available to purchase on Steam. This is the game that Mr. Kaga–“father” of Fire Emblem–and his team created in their spare time.

By this point, we probably don’t need to tell you more about the game. But if you’re unsure, feel free to browse through our news archives.

In addition, the publishers have released Vestaria Saga I Soundtrack PIANO ARRANGEMENT & 8-BIT MUSIC VERSION, which is a selection of 11 8-bit arrangements from the CD plus 5 brand new piano arrangements and their original versions. For a total of 21 tracks.

This can be purchased as a bundle with the game or separately as DLC. However, you must own the game to purchase it. Also, the piano arrangements (and original versions) are not available yet and will be added once they’re completed.

On their Twitter account, Mr. Saitoh, who composed for the game (as well as Kaga’s previous game, Berwick Saga), mentions that he’s up for composing more tracks if there’s enough demand.

Furthermore, for the first time, the Vestaria Saga I Original Soundtrack has been released outside of Japan! The soundtrack contains 70 tracks from the game. Also, this version will come with a 4-page English booklet.

You can order the soundtrack internationally via this page. It retails for 3,400 Yen.

Thanks to @theprinceofiris for the heads up!

Fire Emblem Premium Arrange Album II Releasing on 19th February 2020

Intelligent Systems have formally announced details for the Fire Emblem Premium Arrange Album II, which contains music to be performed at the upcoming Fire Emblem Expo II event during early May 2020.

As mentioned previously, the album will be released before the event itself. This is because there are some new vocal songs and they want to encourage fans to learn the lyrics so they can follow the songs during the live concert.

We now know when exactly it’ll be released: 19th February 2020. It will retail for 3,200 Yen (including tax). As is often the case, the album will be released in Japan only. However, there’s a good chance that import stores will be carrying it.

For the record, the album contains most of the songs from the concert, but not all of them. On the other hand, it features an exclusive song that won’t be performed at the concert: “Truth, Despair and Hope” from The Sacred Stones.

Keep reading for the full track list!
