The Future And Present Cross Paths In Fire Emblem: Awakening’s Next Drama CD

By Sato . February 4, 2014 . 1:01pm

Fire Emblem: Awakening was released almost two years ago in Japan, but the story is still going on in the form of drama CDs. In the fourth installment of the series titled The Bond of the Underworld: Quest for the Dreaming Tiara, a group of soldiers from the future arrive in Chrom’s timeline.


This sounds similar to some of the DLC chapters that were made available in Awakening, featuring an alternate, bleaker future.


Here’s a brief synopsis of what will be going on in the upcoming drama:


Will the fate be destruction or a future of hope? A group of soldiers from the future visit the era of Chrom and his companions. Lucina and her party were in the midst of a task when a certain incident occurred, as she was determined to find the missing tiara.


Suddenly, the gates to the underworld had opened… which will carry out the destined meeting between “the two”.


Here are the 10 titles of volume 4 of the Drama CD series:


1) Who… Are You?

2) Do You Promise to Not Give Up?

3) Searching Mission of Tiara

4) Are You Ready, Old Man?

5) That Hair Ornament Isn’t Right

6) We’re the Embarrassing Unarmed Troupe

7) Take the Bag, Even If The Contents Are Unknown

8) An Interesting Phenomenon

9 ) An Even Greater Treasure

10) I Hope to Meet Again

Fire Emblem: Awakening’s fourth drama CD will be released on April 23, 2014 for 3,000yen.

    sigh…I wish I could understand Japanese.

    • David García Abril

      Well, you know what to do to fix that. :P

      • God

        Kidnapping a japanese child and make him translate everything for me or else i send a horseman of the apocalypse to visit his family?

        • katamari damacy

          a child wouldn’t have any mastery of english. You’d need to kidnap a japanese high school girl to do that task.

          • keithmaxx

            Sadly, not even most high schoolers or university students in Japan are up to the task.

            Wise man, wise

          • God

            I think you meant deity, but i’ll let it slide… THIS time…

      • Astromime

        You’re right…I need to watch more anime! You sir(?), have opened my eyes, and for that I thank you!

  • revenent hell

    Hmmm these being wanted gives me hope of another Fire Emblem game being developed and released hopefully in a *soon-ish* amount of time. Not tomorrow or even this year but considering there’s incentive enough at least in Japan to make the drama CD’s just overall makes me feel positive for the “Fire Emblem” games in general.

    • Magicks

      Makes me pretty excited as well. But another part of me is worried about this because Awakening was pretty damn good. I wonder what they’ll do to be able to do even better than Awakening.

      Also, a part of me believes that they won’t carry over the children system. I’m going to miss pairing units just to have pretty and powerful children. ;__;

      • revenent hell

        I enjoyed the children system as well and hope they do keep it
        There’s not to many games out there where this type of system is implemented and I really did enjoy how they did it.

        I’m sure the pairing up and children will be in future games in some form but I can only hope they implement it as well as they did in this one

        My favorite games tend to be ones that have these types of aspects in them but this one became a win/win on all accounts for how well they implemented it here.

      • Sam

        nooooooo, that was the most fun part! and it was genius!

      • God

        Well, time traveling when not properly explained is pretty stupid and deus machina-ish, so unless it fits on the story it’s not a very good thing to do.

        • revenent hell

          I found it horrible in Final Fantasy XIII-2 but then again it was pretty fun in Chrono Trigger. It depends on the game really and the person playing it. Most games I have played handle the “time” traveling thing well and some have not.

    • PreyMantis

      Unless they want to saturate the time-traveling scheme, I doubt they will have the children thing, again, knowing Nintendo.

  • I like the children aspect much but I’m not fond of the time travel aspect. There should have been a separate game focused on them.

  • Buitronthecrazy .

    i was hoping some info about FExSMT…

  • Raltrios

    Wonder if they could do drama CD’s featuring what a day would be like with your wife/husband? I think they did something like that for Neptunia, so…

  • Göran Isacson

    Not sure if I like this method of continuing a story… like, how likely is it that this story will remain canon should a sequel be made? We in the West won’t get these, so if they DO take their ques from these stories we will be lost. And if they ignore these CD’s, then I just kind of question why they exist in the first place.

  • Mordina

    Even though my japanese is pretty rusty I have bought all so far and preordered this one. There’s also something about getting a box to store all volumes in drawn by the artist of FEA if you buy first print edition or something. Anyone better than me feel free to correct me!
