After debuting last year, Fire Emblem Expo is officially coming back to Japan. Fittingly titled Fire Emblem Expo II, the event will call fans to Zepp Namba in Osaka to celebrate the memories, music, and more of Nintendo’s flagship strategy series.
Those in attendance will be able to see concept art and sketches of moments from Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade and Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance, and will be treated to a full orchestral concert spanning the entire series. From NES to Switch, no corner of Fire Emblem’s history is going unturned, and fans are even being encouraged to wear clothes that match their favorite character in some way to receive a free, random gift. Not full cosplay mind you, so expect to see a lot of blue.
Various voice actors will be in attendance as well, and will be performing as their characters in special events live on stage. For anyone paying the big bullions for special tickets, there will be exclusive mini replicas of Three Houses’ Edelgard, Dimitri, and Claude’s signature weapons available as extra limited goods. More merchandise will be revealed at a later date, though a special arrange album will be available just like last year.
Be on the lookout for more information on Fire Emblem Expo II leading all the way up to May.
