FE9 and FE10 (Tellius 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 FE9 (Path of Radiance) and FE10 (Radiant Dawn) which together form the Tellius saga/games.

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

FE: Path of Radiance: “What does that ‘Eat Rock’ guy say in Japanese?” [JPN vs ENG]

eatrockman

When I was playing through Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance (FE9) again a few months ago, I came across this particularly silly line that many fans (and I) find amusing.

I was curious as to what he said in Japanese, and managed to get hold of the Japanese game script to check just that!

The dialogue in question is from Chapter 25 of Path of Radiance (Strange Lands). It occurs in the scene right after you beat the level.

For those unaware, that map features traps and boulders that the enemy tries to roll down atop you. So when the group thinks they’ve cleared the field of enemies, along comes this guy…

25th Anniversary Book: Pg. 81 Chrom Design Tidbit Translation

From the Making of Fire Emblem: 25 Years of Development Secrets book comes a small snippet on page 81 regarding how Chrom’s design was meant to resemble Ike’s (with a bit of Marth).

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! (the button can be found in the top right of the page)

Enjoy!

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:

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!
