Fire Emblem

Dragalia Lost’s crossover event with Fire Emblem has gone live and it comes with some special art from the Dragalia Lost Team.

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Fire Emblem series, Cygames has remade the iconic artwork from the first Fire Emblem game, only with the characters available in its Fire Emblem Lost Heroes crossover event (available to view in header). Make sure to grab all the returning characters in this event, as it will end on 10:59am PT, May 11, 2020. There are also profile cards available on Dragalia Lost’s website that can be customized with these Fire Emblem characters.

Unrelated to the Fire Emblem event, there is a new chapter in the main campaign, Chapter 13 – Return from Darkness, that includes a double drop event. Also, there are new additions to Void Battles, such as the wind-attuned Tempest Chimera and flame-attuned Infernal Phantom. For more information on all of these events and more, check out the source below.

Fire Emblem Expo II was previously announced for early May. The Japanese event, which celebrated all things Fire Emblem, would have featured live band performances, stage dramas, art exhibitions, and merchandise opportunities.

Unfortunately, Fire Emblem Expo II is another victim of the coronavirus. The event has been cancelled entirely due to the pandemic and wanting to keep everyone safe.

Those who purchased tickets for Fire Emblem Expo II will be able to receive a refund.

The Fire Emblem Expo debuted in Japan earlier this year. It was the perfect gathering for fans of the franchise with live performances, display of artwork, special merchandise, and more.

Thanks to the first event’s success, Fire Emblem Expo II has been announced. Although a date has yet to be provided, we’ll be hearing more on November 22 at 6 PM Japan time.

The official website for Fire Emblem Expo II is located here.

One of the events happening at Fire Emblem Expo on May 4 will be a special concert featuring new re-arrangements of many iconic tracks from across the series. Don’t worry if you won’t be able to attend the event though – a music album containing all of these new re-arrangements will be released in Japan on March 20. It’ll cost 3,200 Yen. You can listen to samples of the tracks on Intelligent Systems’ website here.

Today, Nintendo has relaunched Fire Emblem World, its Japanese Fire Emblem portal website. The site gives an overview of the Fire Emblem series as a whole, introducing the various games and characters from the series’ long history. There’s no real new info on the site, but the site does have artwork of all the games in high quality, which is noteworthy for some of the older titles. Nintendo has also uploaded all of the series’ opening movies in HD to Youtube for the first time – a list of them can be found here. With both Fire Emblem Expo and Fire Emblem Houses coming next year, it seems like Nintendo is reinforcing how big the series has become in recent years.

Intelligent Systems has announced Fire Emblem Expo, an event to be held at Zepp Tokyo on May 4th, 2019. Currently, no other details are known about the event. More information will be announced at the next monthly Fire Emblem Cipher (the FE card game) live stream on December 8th. Tickets for Fire Emblem Expo will go on sale on December 28th.

While Fire Emblem Cipher will likely be a large part of this expo, it seems likely that this will be more of a general Fire Emblem event. May 4th is also right in the middle of the “Spring 2019” release window of Fire Emblem: Three Houses, so the new Switch game will likely also be featured at the event.

Nintendo and Intelligent Systems will be releasing the soundtrack of the first two GBA Fire Emblem games, Binding Blade and Blazing Blade, in Japan on December 19. The soundtracks for both games will be released as one package with several goodies included for 5,200 Yen.

A total of 170 tracks will included on five discs – 70 tracks on two discs for Binding Blade and 100 tracks on three discs for Blazing Blade. Each game also gets its own 8-page, full-color booklet with illustrations and interviews. Also included is a bonus disc called “Fire Emblem Music Box” featuring rearrangements of ten tracks from both games in the style of a music box. The final item in the box is a “sound rubber strap”, a sort of rubber cushion that press a variety of sound effects from both games when you squeeze it.

Nintendo announced a new Fire Emblem game for Switch a few months ago. We’ve yet to see a single image from the game, but it’ll apparently be worth the wait. Nintendo’s Kenta Nakanishi told USgamer in a new interview that “it’s going to be looking beautiful with great graphics”.

That’s not the only thing Nakanishi recently said about the project. This past weekend, we reported him noting that Switch “should be able to offer a completely different Fire Emblem, breathing life into our characters like never before.”

Tying in with the launch of Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, French site Jeuxvideo spoke with three of the game’s developers. They are as follows:

– Masahiro Higuchi (Intelligent Systems), producer on Fire Emblem Echoes, Heroes and Fates
– Hitoshi Yamagami (Nintendo), producer on Fire Emblem Echoes, Fates and Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE
– Kenta Nakanishi (Nintendo), director on Fire Emblem Echoes

One portion of the interview touched on how Fire Emblem never ended up on Wii U, and the series has had a focus on 3DS over the past few years. Yamagami explained that the series has a “long history of home console games,” and it’s not primarily considered a handheld franchise. Nakanishi chimed in by saying Fire Emblem Switch will allow for something “completely different” while “breathing life into our characters like never before.”

Here’s the full excerpt:

The latest live stream for the Fire Emblem 0 (Cipher) trading card game was held today. Arguably the biggest piece of news was the announcement of series 11. The Sacred Stones will finally be featured in addition to Fire Emblem Warriors. More cards from Shadows of Valentia will be included, too.

Also during the live stream, fans were treated to a sneak peek of sorts for the Fire Emblem 0 collaboration DLC in Shadows of Valentia. In-game models for Shade, Emma, Yuzu, and Yuzu were shown.

Kirie from Serenes Forest captured a ton of different images from the live stream, posted below. Along with what we already mentioned, there was talk and cards shown for series 10 and more.
