Fire Emblem Echoes: Dengeki Developer Interview (April 2017)

I spent the last two days translating an interview about the newly released Fire Emblem Echoes. It was featured in the June 2017 issue of Dengeki Nintendo (released April 21st, 2017).

A big thanks to VincentASM on serenesforest.net for sending me the scans. Please link back if you use any part of the interview as I put a lot of time into it. The original scans of the interview are available only by request, as well as the Japanese transcript I (re)typed up.

Some important questions are addressed, such as where the title came from, why Gaiden, and other fun tidbits of other Fire Emblem games. Enjoy!

Dengeki Scan on Marriage in Fire Emblem Fates Translated [6/20]

I decided to translate the single page on supports and marriage just to clear up confusion as a lot of misinformation has been spreading around since it was leaked a few days ago. I did not originally plan on doing this… and I am sorry if it is considered a spoiler to some people where to confirm or deny it. I put it past the read more tag for your convenience.

It is just a single page. Head past the break.

FECIpherLogo

As part of the Dengeki scans that were provided to me, I decided to take a look at the TCG and how it works, so translated the entire explanation. Both pages had their own post, but this is the compilation post for convenience.

Fire Emblem: Cipher Dengeki TCG Information Translated [2/2]

As part of the Dengeki scans that were provided to me, I translated the character profiles here. I decided to take a look at the TCG and how it works, so translated the entire explanation. This is the second of two pages, the first of which is here. There were three pages in the scans, but the middle one was just specific card information rather than gameplay information.

Fire Emblem: IF Dengeki Character Profiles [ALL] [5/21/15]

A reader kindly pointed me to FE: IF Dengeki scans from here. I translated the character profiles as the gameplay info is likely similar to the Famitsu ones, which I translated in full here.

I intend to translate the information on the TCG soon.

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

Notes:

-I made Character Page 1 by moving the Protagonist next to Aqua, they were originally on two separate pages.

-I referred to the Protagonist as a “he” but really can be either gender. I just used it as a neutral umbrella term!

-I erased the voice actor information. It made it look cleaner, as they are hard to read and can easily be mistaken.
