The Fire Emblem series is celebrating its “25th anniversary of love and courage” with various festivities this year, and one is a special talk show event that features various guests including Super Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai.
The theme of the talk show is “From Shadow Dragon,to Awakening, to If,” and during it various staff and other guests will appear to share their passion and thoughts on the Fire Emblem series. It’ll be interesting to see Sakurai there, especially considering the recent rumors of Roy joining the cast of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS, but he could also just be there to participate as a fan of the series.
In addition to Sakurai’s special talk during the vent, Fire Emblem Awakening and If artist Yusuke Kozaki will be there, along with various developers from both Nintendo and Intelligent Systems.
There are also two slots that are marked as “special guest,” for unannounced cast members who’ve worked on the series, and will be there for the Fire Emblem talk show. The event will commence on July 24th and will also have two more showings on the 25th.
Fire Emblem If will release in 2016 in the West for Nintendo 3DS. You can also read our earlier report to check out more about the two different versions that Japan will get.
