The Radiant Dawn design book Tellius Recollection Volume 2 was released in Japan a few weeks ago. If you’ve been keeping up, Kirokan has been diligently translating the contents over on our forums, just like for the first volume.
Before diving straight into the new book, I should mention that the translations for the first volume (which covers the previous game, Path of Radiance) are pretty much complete.
In fact, not long ago, Kirokan translated the last major segment, which features the developers’ thoughts on the game. Here’s a link to Kirokan’s website, where the translation can be found.
What’s interesting is that the developers considered changing the story depending on if you followed Titania’s or Soren’s advice. Fans may remember that Titania was strict but understanding, while Soren was heavily focused on the results.
In case you missed it, the Radiant Dawn art book Tellius Recollection (Volume 2) is expected to finally arrive during 25th November 2016, a month after its original release date.
Update: Cover added.
Today, a number of Japanese retailers updated the book description, which Kirokan has kindly translated for us:
A compilation of official documents from developer Intelligent Systems – Volume 2. For the first time, official documents revealing three-view design documents, background of the world, and various roughs will be released to the public. In addition to this, the book contains info on the entire story, all base conversations, as well as things like a directory of boss characters and the stages they appear in –and so much more. Everything you need to know about Radiant Dawn wrapped up in one neat package. Senri Kita, the illustrator who drew all of the character artwork, makes a special return to draw the cover for this book too!
If you’re feeling a pinch of deja vu, this is pretty much the exact same description as the Path of Radiance edition.
The Radiant Dawn book even features the same page count (256 pages) and same price (3456 Yen including tax). So if you liked Volume 1, there’s every chance you’ll enjoy this new volume too.
Yesterday, the Fire Emblem Cipher team hosted another livestream as a pre-release event for the upcoming Series 6, which releases on September 29th. During the steam, they showcased many of the missing cards from the series, and also discussed upcoming events and later series releases.
Ryota Kawade (Cipher Producer), Young (from Intelligent Systems), and Eri Suzuki (Soleil’s Japanese VA) were our starting hosts. They opened up the stream by showing off a few pieces of artwork from the upcoming Part 2 of the Tellius Recollection books featuring Micaiah and Ike from Radiant Dawn.
Afterwards, they started showing off some cards by opening one of the ST Decks. Kawade showed off some of the deck’s holo cards, such as the starring lord card for Sigurd from Genealogy of the Holy War, the holo versions of the joined artwork of younger Quan, Sigurd, and Eldigan, and other ST Deck cards of Lex and Azel.
The Tellius Recollection translation project has just passed its second week–and boy was it a busy week! Again, for your convenience, here’s another recap of last week’s translations and findings.
Like always, you can find the latest translations and comments on our forums or Kirokan’s website, Kantopia.
Following on from last week‘s history and timeline of Tellius, we have translations of the individual countries’ histories and backgrounds.
