Fire Emblem Series “Choose Your Legends” Analysis – Final Summary and Recap

feheroescharacters

Over the last week, I took an in-depth look at the Fire Emblem Heroes “Choose Your Legends” poll. It is the first time there has ever been (what is essentially) a popularity poll of the Fire Emblem series conducted worldwide across every main entry in the series. For that reason I put a lot of time toward looking at the trends, characters, and other fun data that we can derive from it.

There are limitations to it of course, which I address on each individual post. I hope as a Fire Emblem fan you gain some nice insight form all this.

A big thank you to Elieson over on serenesforest.net for having organized the original graphs of data that I could then modify and format for purposes here.

I will be resuming my usual translations from tomorrow, but if you have any other suggestions on what sort of data you want to see formatted (such as “Chart showing Jagen characters lined up), let me know! I’ll happily add it.

If you feel generous, then I’ll happily accept any donations you may have (just click the orange button on the top right of the page!)

Below I present the findings in image format, and links to the more detailed article pages! Enjoy! And thanks again for all reader comments and support. : )

FE6 and FE7 (Elibe Games) “Choose Your Legends” Poll Results Analysis

Nintendo conducted a poll for Fire Emblem Heroes urging fans to pick a favorite character of theirs that they would love to see featured. Each fan could vote once a day for 13 days for almost any character from any of the main Fire Emblem series of games.

This is part of a miniseries I am doing on analyzing the vast amount of poll data available to us and what it means for the fandom and their favorites regarding characters.

Thanks to the tireless work of Elieson over on serenesforest.net, we can take a look at the break downs by game!

Today we will focus on FE6 (Binding Blade) and FE7 (Blazing Blade). The latter is the first Fire Emblem game that came to the west, and indeed it shows! Combined they form the Elibe games.

There are some general things to keep in mind before we get started, however.

Fire Emblem 64: Rare Dialogue Document Translation + Analysis

ephraimandrei

From the Making of Fire Emblem: 25 Years of Development Secrets book comes a script from the canceled Fire Emblem 64. It is the only dialogue example provided for the game. For some more trivia about this game, I made a post about some design documents from it here.

I translated it in full since it contains some interesting tidbits for FE fans, such as the names Eliwood and Ephraim just to name a few! Also, it reveals who the two characters in the only screenshot released for the game are.

You can find much more from this book on the 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…

Please donate! It helps fund future projects!

Enjoy!

Fire Emblem 64 Screenshot + Design Work Scans – 25th Anniversary Book

Fire-Emblem-25th-AnniversaryToday I translated some tidbits on the game that would’ve been Fire Emblem 64. It was titled Maiden of Darkness (the same title the antagonist of Binding Blade goes by). I posted some high resolution scans of the designs with some added notes (but raws are available by request).

A user on reddit and SerenesForest have already posted more tidbits regarding the development from the interview that was included alongside these shots, so I will provide a link to that here if you are interested.

As you can imagine, the process of doing all this (scanning and killing the book’s spine, editing, and translating l took a lot of time, so if you like what I did, then…

UPDATE: I am considering acquiring another copy of this book to unbind and scan in high quality as well as iron out the translations. If interested in funding this project, please donate above and add a note!

This is every single profile from Fire Emblem 6 (Sword of Seals) and Fire Emblem 7 (Blazing Sword) translated on this website and put in one place!

I used the names that were on the pages, even if they had official localized names in FE7 for FE6, with a few exceptions. However, from FE7 onward I used the officially localized names.

56 K Warning for a lot of images ahead! All of the scans for FE6 are from serenesforest.net. Some of the FE7 ones are too, but I scanned the ones they were missing. All were edited/translated by me. Their original Japanese transcripts are found on their original pages.

These are in order. Enjoy this milestone!
