Donation Drive for Valentia Accordion (Shadows of Valentia Art/Design Book)

Donate Button

Raised so far: $ 77/ 50

Update: Wow! That was fast. The goal is already met. Thank you to all who donated! The project page should be up tomorrow! Please note there is no longer any need to donate. Any donations now are purely just general donations rather than toward this work.


Original Post:

Today I’m starting a donation drive for my Valentia Accordion project. The project this time is to mainly scan artworks and translate relevant portions of interest (such as concept art or new information).

The book is an art/design book for Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia that will feature Hidari’s official character art, profiles, and design work never before seen, among other things. A lot of Fire Emblem fans (myself included) are looking forward to seeing what we can find, and especially getting access to higher resolution art!

A skeleton of the contents are as follows:

  • 1 Visual Gallery – Character art gallery by Hidari. I plan to scan all of these for sure as it will likely contain the unseen official artworks too!
  • 2 World & Story – Story Summary. Likely will go untranslated, though some things such as timelines and other lore building things will probably be looked at by VincentASM.
  • 3 Character Archive – Ingame portraits & intros to characters. This will likely not provide any new information to the characters, so will be low priority.
  • 4 Concept Art – 150+ concept art from Hidari & IS staff. This is the main section I am interested in translating of course!
  • 5 Extra – Animation gallery, support archive, etc. There are sometimes fun things to be found in here so will also be of priority for me.

One thing to note. Unlike last time for my Tellius Recollection project, I am not sure if I will be translating every single profile this time. However, I will still be translating relevant portions of the text and concept art with fellow translators who want to take a shot at helping out. Images will be the priority this time, such as character artworks.

Please help spread the word!

Fire Emblem Path of Radiance Memorial Book Tellius Recollection: The First Volume

Tellis recollection 1

Today, Amazon.co.jp put up a cover for a design document book for Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance (FE9) (蒼炎の軌跡). See it above!

It will release July 29th for the price of 3,456 Yen (~33 USD). Import costs usually add another ~10 USD.

Now, the title has an English name (as written by the Japanese):

Fire Emblem Path of Radiance Memorial Book Tellius Recollection: The First Volume

Previously, I called it:

Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance Design Documents. Tellius Recollection (1)

But will now go by the above name. I will likely call it FE: Tellius Recollection (1) for simplicity’s sake though!

The info on the page restates what the product description already covered. I translated the content information on a previous post. You can read the description (translated by me) there!

I have already pre-ordered the book (with donation money! Thanks!) and will get to scanning/translating pages of interest. : ) Likely alongside VincentASM of serenesforest.net (will take priority requests too, of course!).

If you’re feeling generous to donate, please use the button located on the top right of this page! It will help enable me to get the sequel book in the future too!

You can pre-order the book for yourself from amazon.co.jp here!

Check out VincentASM’s own post about it on serenesforest here!

Also the title has changed slightly, now:

Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance Design Documents. Tellius Recollection (1)

I may refer to it as “Tellius Recollecton” from now on, but we’ll see. (1) likely means that Radiant Dawn will be (2).

There is no cover art yet, but there is a new description!

Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance Design Book Announced for July 29 2016

PathOfRadianceTourSacrée

In surprise news, a design document book for Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance (FE9) (蒼炎の軌跡) was announced today. It will be released next month (July 29th, 2016), for the price of 3,456 Yen (~33 USD). Import costs usually add another ~10 USD.

A follow up for Radiant Dawn will come at a later date!

I have already pre-ordered the book (with donation money! Thanks!) and will get to scanning/translating pages of interest. : )

If you’re feeling generous to donate, please use the button located on the top right of this page! It will help enable me to get the sequel book in the future too!

You can pre-order the book for yourself from amazon.co.jp here!

It is listed as 256 pages and as a “design book” rather than purely an “art book.” This means there will likely be a lot more info like we got regarding Ike, Mist, and Titania in the 25th Anniversary Book.

There is no additional info yet, but when there is I will likely translate it here!

Mario Maker Design Book Misc. Translations (2)

This is part 2 of my brief Mario Maker translations. Part 1 is here.

I’ve been hooked on making Mario Maker levels recently! I noticed in the booklet that came with it, there were some small (and hard to read) bits of Japanese writing here and there. I don’t think many really care, but for those out there who may randomly be curious, here’s some bits of it. I’ll have more tomorrow, when not making levels…
