Second annual Fire Emblem Expo cancelled due to COVID-19.
With the recent success of the Fire Emblem series in the western world and a renaissance of sorts occurring in its home country, it’s no wonder Intelligent Systems has been building up the hype around all things FE, especially as the series recently turned 30.
This year’s Fire Emblem Expo II was cancelled out of public health concerns so the company posted last year’s concert on YouTube, available through May 7th.
It’s an incredible performance with electric guitars, a bounty of brass, and a stage play embedded within.
YouTube user Marquis Emanuel helpfully breaks down the tracklisting and timestamps, which we’ve included below, as the Japanese production runs nearly two hours long. If you only have a few fleeting moments to enjoy the music we recommend jumping straight to the 1:10:12 mark for a roaring Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn performance.
The concert was notable last year as it offered us one of our first glimpses at the music that would be featured in Fire Emblem: Three Houses.
