(Japanese: ファイアーエムブレム 英雄百歌 Fire Emblem: One Hundred Songs of Heroes) is a limited-edition set of traditional Japanese uta-garuta playing cards based on the Fire Emblem series which was released as premium merchandise for the series' 25th anniversary. They were originally exclusively available for sale at The 25th Anniversary of Love and Courage: Fire Emblem Festival.

Gameplay

This article or section is a short summary of Uta-garuta.
Wikipedia features a more in-depth article.

The deck of 200 cards is divided into two types: yomifuda, or reading cards which contain the first half of a traditional Japanese poem; and torifuda, or grabbing cards which have the corresponding second half. The game is set up by placing fifty torifuda face-down on the ground, and when a reader recites the contents of a yomifuda, the other players attempt to grab the matching torifuda from the face-down cards. This continues until all torifuda have been taken, and the winner is the player with the most torifuda taken.

Release information

The cover art of the recitation CD features several major characters from across the series.

The set was first made available on July 24th, 2015, at the first showing of The 25th Anniversary of Love and Courage. Each set costs ¥8,424, tax included.[1]

Each contains the following items:[1]

  • 100 reading cards (yomifuda)
  • 100 grabbing cards (torifuda)
  • 1 CD containing an accompanying recitation (narrated by Anna, as voiced by Saori Seto)
  • 1 instruction booklet.

Characters represented

100 Fire Emblem characters are represented on these cards, with two - Camus and Tiki - being represented twice; each has a yomifuda and a torifuda dedicated to them. As usual for the anniversary merchandise, the majority of characters present are from Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light and Awakening, although all games prior to Fates are represented. A large number of guest artists contributed illustrations for these cards, with some cards reusing the character's DLC art from Awakening. The following are the present characters:[2]

Trivia

  • Hector is the only lord character to be completely absent from this set.
  • A faint, ghostly image of Deirdre is present in the background of both Sigurd and Arvis's cards. No other character has this treatment.
