Fire Emblem Engage: Emblem Marth & Emblem Ring Videos

At first I thought today would be a quiet day, when there was no Fire Emblem Engage Twitter post during the usual time…

First, Nintendo Japan has uploaded a trailer showcasing the Emblem Rings.

It explains the benefits of equipping Emblems, the Engage mechanic and shows off various of the Emblems, such as Corrin and Byleth for the first time.

Meanwhile the official Japanese Twitter account shared a video showcasing Emblem Marth’s abilities.

Both videos feature multiple new characters, as well as names for previously unnamed characters, among many other details.

On top of that, the official Japanese website has updated, with Story, World and Character sections. The characters section includes Alear, the Dragon Guardians, royalty from the 4 nations, Lumera, Veyle, the officially revealed Emblems and the Four Hounds.

There’s a LOT to cover between the three fronts, so a full analysis might take a while, especially as I’m busy with work. However, if you’re curious, I’ve gone over most of the notable discoveries at Serenes Forest’s Twitter. (Anything to do with mechanics has not been covered.)

Fire Emblem “Castle Conversations” Returns with Joe Zieja & Erica Mendez

About a year and a half ago, the Western branch of Nintendo and Fire Emblem Heroes produced a Castle Conversations video, featuring multiple FE voice actors, as a parallel to the Japanese Roundtable videos.

While the 5th Roundtable video came out last week, we haven’t seen another Castle Conversations. Until now that is!

Volume 2 of Castle Conversations features Joe Zieja (voice of Claude, Canas and Jamke) and Erica Mendez (voice of Bernadetta and also the recent Legendary Deirdre).

Not actual game footage!

Interestingly, during the Erica Mendez section, Fehnix asks her to voice both Deirdre and also young Shannan in a scene from Genealogy of the Holy War. Since the game hasn’t been officially localised, this is probably the closest we’ll get for now.

This wouldn’t be the first time they showed off footage not from the games; in the first Castle Conversations, they seemingly showed pre-release footage from Three Houses. While this hasn’t been officially confirmed, apparently thanibomb (who leaked various Three Houses info) agrees with this.

“Fire Emblem Roundtable Vol. 5” Casual Livestream Scheduled for 27th August (Japan)

A fifth installment of the Fire Emblem Roundtable will be broadcast from 27th August 2022, between 18:00 and 20:00 (Japan time).

Like previous broadcasts, Chief Fehnix (voiced by Takehito Koyasu) will be chatting to voice actors from the series. This time, he’ll be joined by Kentaro Tone (voice of Reinhardt etc.) as a sub-MC.

As always, there will be no new game-related information.

On this occasion, they’ll be chatting about the 10th anniversary of FE Awakening, which released in Japan on 19th April 2012.

Currently announced guests include Tomokazu Sugita (voice of Chrom etc.) and Yū Kobayashi (voice of Lucina etc.).

Heroes: New Tempest Trials Series to Continue from Book III

A year ago, Fire Emblem Heroes surprised us with “Ice & Flame”, a 6-part Tempest Trials+ series that brought back Fjorm and other characters from Book II.

Since then, fans have speculated if the same could happen for other Books. Well, now, it’s been confirmed that Book III will also be getting its own Tempest Trials+ series, starting with the one on 7th July 2022 (UTC).

Via the in-game notification: “The Tempest Trials+ event that starts at […] is part of a series about Eir and those whose lives she has touched. […]”

To hype up the occasion, the FE Heroes team have created a cutesy “chibi playhouse” video that whimsically recaps the events of Book III, in case you’ve forgotten what went down.
