There was a lengthy (eight page) interview with Masahiro Sakurai near the end of the Fire Emblem 25th Anniversary Book. In it, Sakurai’s history with the Fire Emblem franchise is explored.
I provided the scans to my friends at SourceGaming, who translated the first part of the interview. Please head over there to read this insightful interview! It details info on Sakurai’s thoughts and background regarding Fire Emblem and the Super Smash Bros. series. The second part will be up later.
At one point Sakurai refers to a more “energetic” Roy, as well as when Roy was once named Ike. I have provided the relevant pages in translation below to give you an idea of what he’s talking about. For more information from the 25th Anniversary Book in general, go to my compilation post here!
As you can imagine, the process of doing all this (scanning, editing, translating in some cases, etc) took a lot of time, and I am unemployed…so if you like what I did, then…
