Fire Emblem Fates: “Lost in Thoughts All Alone” English Lyrics

Today’s post are the lyrics for “Lost in Thoughts All Alone” (the theme song to Fire Emblem Fates) as they appear in the official translation. The lyrics are vastly different than the Japanese lyrics that I translated back in July, so it will be interesting to compare them later on!

Update: I updated the above video for the full song!

It is notably missing the second verse of the song (which equates to Conquest/Nohr). As such, the song is incomplete, but will be updated to include the full song when it becomes available. UPDATE: We now have the second verse lyrics! Thanks to reader JL Brown for the link! Updated the lyrics below! Thanks to reader JL Brown for the link!

This was all done on my free time, and so took a while. It was certainly a lot of work, but I do hope you enjoy! Please consider donating if you like the work I do. : )

Note this is not an official transcript, but all by ear, though there are not many words that can be misunderstood.

Super Smash Bros. Melee: Roy’s Character Intro Webpage Translation

This image is from and created by the amazing Nirbion for SourceGaming

Today, I present an article from SourceGaming that is a translation of  Roy’s Smash Bros. Dojo introduction back during the Super Smash Bros. Melee days.

Please read it here in full!

However, I did edit it onto the webpage in a style that imitates the original page as close as I could possibly make. All translation credits go to Soma and PushDustIn of SourceGaming this time around.

 The images below give a preview for the final product. Full resolution coming soon!

Sakurai Interview (Part 2): Fire Emblem 25th Anniversary

Fire-Emblem-25th-Anniversary

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 before. And now, they translated the second part of the interview in full. Sakurai details his opinions on the games of the franchise, such as Genealogy of the Holy War among others! There are some Fire Emblem Fates spoilers, so please be careful. Thankfully, SourceGaming has marked the spoilers so they can be avoided.

Please go over and read it!

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…

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!
