Three Houses: Boxart, Music and Art Book Samples from the Fódlan Collection

Nintendo Japan has shared some new details about Fire Emblem Three Houses‘s Japanese special edition, the “Fódlan Collection”.

Firstly, here’s a look at the game’s box art and main visual.


The cover illustration is designed by Miss Chinatsu Kurahana, who’s the character designer for this game. In the background is the Garreg Mach Monastery, the two protagonists standing solemnly with their swords, and the three house leaders each crossing weapons. The standard edition will have the same cover.

Next is the Fódlan Artbook, which includes character designs and landscapes.

This is an art book containing 128 pages in total with a large number of illustrations and concept artwork. These include details of all the students enrolled in the three houses. If you read this, your enjoyment of the game’s world will surely be enhanced!

Warriors: Special Editions Announced for Japan

Yesterday at E3, Fire Emblem Warriors gifted us with a new game trailer, gameplay demonstration and new amiibo. Today, we have some preliminary details about the special editions releasing in Japan, alongside the game, on 28th September 2017.

First, we have the “standard” limited edition, dubbed the “Premium Box“. This includes the game itself (Switch or new 3DS/2DS version), a 3-disk soundtrack CD, 80-page visual artbook and a set of character postcards.

The Switch edition costs 10,800 Yen plus tax, while the new Nintendo 3DS/2DS edition is slightly cheaper, at 9,800 Yen plus tax. Which at the current exchange rates–and including tax–comes to about 106 USD and 97 USD respectively.

Meanwhile there’s the “Treasure Box” for those with a more flexible budget; it includes everything contained in the Premium Box plus an amazing-sounding Dragonstone crystal (with voice sound effects).

Judging from the silhouette and the mention of sound effects, it could be an alarm clock of some sort. Anyway, the Switch edition costs 15,800 Yen plus tax (156 USD), while the new 3DS/2DS edition costs 14,800 Yen plus tax (146 USD).

The key thing to know is that the Treasure Box will be sold exclusively from the MyNintendo Store, Amazon Japan and GAMECITY (Koei Tecmo’s store). This of course doesn’t include retailers acting as proxies, etc.

At the time of writing, it’s unknown if these special editions will turn up in the West, but we’re confident Nintendo and Koei Tecmo aren’t going to disappoint the legions of fans.
