The Fire Emblem faithful might recall that a while back a big fancy Fire Emblem Expo was announced for May 4th at Zepp Tokyo in Japan. And while many fans lack the funds or time to make it to the gathering, Intelligent Systems has you covered on the merchandise front, as they’ve revealed during a recent FE Cipher livestream their whole slate of goodies that you can purchase at or before the event — and they deliver, too! Serenes Forest has compiled the Expo merch, but here’s a quick rundown of what will be on display:
- Sets of Trading Mini Can Badges based around the GBA games (Binding Blade, Blazing Blade, and Sacred Stones) – 400 Yen each, con exclusive
- Memo Stand Clips featuring Radiant Dawn characters – 700 Yen each
- A silver ring based on Lucina’s tiara – 13,000 yen
- Pouches shaped like magic tomes, specifically Leo’s Brynhildr and Robin’s Thorin – 3,500 yen each
- A big, hooded towel patterned like Robin’s coat – 7,500 yen
- A variety of lanyards and cases featuring the following designs: Elise and Sakura, Duma and Mila, Awakening’s logo, the Black Knight, Sacred Stones sprites, Blazing Blade sprites, the Genealogy of the Holy War bloodline chart, and the glorious, legendary visage of pantless Marth – 1,800 yen each
- An Expo Clutch Bag – 2,000 yen
- A box of cookies, with each morsel containing a map sprite of either Marth, Sigurd, Roy, Ike, Lucina, or Alfonse. – 1,500 yen
In addition to the above products, IntSys is releasing some new CDs in the coming months. The first is a Fire Emblem Premium Arrange album of songs that will be played during the live concert to occur at FE Expo, due March 20th.
The other two are drama CDs based on Blazing Blade and Radiant Dawn. For those unfamiliar for the concept, drama CDs are essentially audio-plays featuring characters interacting with one another, and are quite common as spinoffs to established anime and video game franchises in Japan. They’re essentially never localized into other languages, though it’s common for fan translations to pop up online shortly after their release. The Blazing Blade CD, Inheritors of Roland, features the Japanese VAs for Lyn, Eliwood, and Hector telling a story based around the events of that game’s 28th Chapter, while the Radiant Dawn CD, Clash of Heroic Ideals, has the VAs for Ike, Micaiah, Soren, Titania, Sothe, and the Black Knight covering the 7th Chapter of that game’s Part 3.
It’s quite a deluge of merch when you look at it all! And it’s nice to see the spread of love across multiple entries in the long running series. Whether you’re attending the Expo in person, snatching up the merch, or just observing the boom of FE products, this is certainly the most affection Intelligent Systems has shown towards its fans.
