Original Article (Thu 4th Feb, 2021 16:30 GMT): Nintendo has announced that it will continue to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Fire Emblem by hosting a special video starring several voice actors from past games in the series.
The video will be published on 8th February, offering up a series of “candid, in-depth discussions” featuring seven actors from the franchise’s history. The stars in question are Cherami Leigh (Caeda, Mae, Rhea), Chris Hackney (Boey, Quan, Dimitri), Billy Kametz (Ferdinand Von Aegir), Christian La Monte (Seliph, Roderick, Ignatz), Patrick Seitz (Fehnix), Xanthe Huynh (Eir, Marianne) and Ray Chase (Roy, Alfonse, Gaius).
Of course, the celebrations actually kicked off towards the end of last year, when Nintendo dropped a rerelease of Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon & the Blade of Light, the very first game in the series, on Switch. That game also saw a super lovely ‘Fire Emblem 30th Anniversary Edition’ physical release – it’s just a shame that it’s all only being made available for a limited time.
