Fire Emblem is getting a 25th Annivesary book which will go on sale on November 28th this year. I plan to import it on money I have received from donations (thanks to all who donated!) and hopefully translate any fun things that may come in there. The book itself can be pre-ordered here. Amazon Japan offers relatively cheap international shipping, so check if it can be delivered to you if interested!
Please feel free to donate for that coming project! It will really help me out!
For now, however, I translated Amazon.co.jp’s description on it, which can be seen in both text and image below!
