As promised, the “Fire Emblem Castle Conversations” video is now available to watch, via both Nintendo and Nintendo Mobile’s YouTube channels.
As expected, it contained a lot of fun chatter and insights from the 7 voice actors.
However, there was something strange in the video that has gotten fans talking.
At the 30:35 mark, while Christian LaMonte is talking, the video shows off some footage of post-timeskip Edelgard and Claude, but they’re wearing their fully promoted costume, which is impossible in the game.
This has led to speculation that more DLC for Three Houses could be coming–or maybe even an enhanced/definitive edition, similar to Persona 5 Royal. Incredible as Three Houses was, it had a lot of rough corners and bags of content that never made it into the game.
That said, the truth may be more boring than that. Twitter user @rycalochkapointed out how Edelgard’s model resembles her model from some of the earliest footage, suggesting the models in Castle Conversations are from beta footage.
Nintendo and FE Heroes have announced a celebration video, celebrating 30 years of Fire Emblem, featuring discussions with 7 prominent voice actors from the games.
The full video, titled Fire Emblem Castle Conversations, will be available from 8th February 2021, at 3 pm (UTC), 7 am (PT) and 10 am (ET).
The voice actors who will appear in the video are:
Cherami Leigh (Caeda, Mae and Rhea)
Chris Hackney (Boey, Quan and Dimitri)
Billy Kametz (Ferdinand von Aegir)
Christian La Monte (Seliph, Roderick and Ignatz)
Patrick Seitz (Fehnix)
Xanthe Huynh (Eir and Marianne)
Ray Chase (Roy, Alfonse and Gaius)
By the way, it seems “Castle Conversations” is a direct parallel of the Japanese Roundtable videos, the second of which was recently announced. As such, don’t expect any game-related news from the video when it’s released.
Calling all Fire Emblem voice actor fans! Joe Zieja–who provides the voice of the charismatic Claude von Riegan–will be hosting a special stream on 23rd July, at 11 pm (UTC) on his Twitch channel, to celebrate the upcoming one year anniversary of Three Houses.
Earlier, in the linked video, Joe shared details of what to look forward to during the anniversary celebration.
Firstly, between 25th and 26th July, there will be live signings by Joe himself, as well as Tara Platt (voice of Edelgard) and Chris Hackney (voice of Dimitri) via InstaGraph.
The prints used for the signings are of the house leaders’ timeskip designs, illustrated by @hellyonwhite. A neat touch is that the three prints can be joined together as one, similar to some Cipher artworks.
Secondly, the stream itself will kick-start Joe’s brand new playthrough of Three Houses, but this time after caving to peer pressure he’ll be teaching the Black Eagles.
Last and not least, Joe has collaborated with Family Jules to record a music video of “God Shattering Star”, the endgame track for the Golden Deer route. Fans will be able to enjoy a premiere on 23rd July, before the Black Eagles stream begins.
Rallying all Fire Emblem fans! This November, Team Fire Emblem–made up of contributors from r/fireemblem, r/FireEmblemHeroes and Serenes Forest–will be coming together to raise money for Extra Life, which helps support Children Miracle Network Hospitals across the U.S..

Last year, Team Fire Emblem got together for the first time to organise a 28 hour livestream for Extra Life. There were speedruns of a dozen Fire Emblem games by many notable community members, an interview with Greg Chun (the voice of Ike and Ephraim etc.) and loads of cool prizes. In the end, we raised a total of $3,540!
This year, we’re hoping to massively top that. For starters, we’ll be holding four 12-hour livestreams–one during each Saturday of November. So on the 3rd, 10th, 17th and 24th. That equates to a whopping 48 hours of content throughout the month!
During that time, there will be speedruns as before, but also Fire Emblem game showcases, a Heroes tourney featuring some of your favourite personalities, at least 5 times as many voice actor interviews and a bucket-load of prizes–including an unmissable grand prize!
