  1. The previous updates released at 8:00 EST, so it should release around that time on the 12th (which would be the 13th in Europe and Japan).
  2. The present, it apparently takes place during Act 4 in a Rigelian forest (though I'm not familiar with the drama CD's plot). The character in question isn't explicitly identified as Alm's mother, but she looks like him, is familiar with his name, and holds high status within Rigel. Speaking of parents, I wonder how the families of the Ashen Wolves will fit into Fódlan. Constance is from House Nuvelle and Balthus is from Leicester, but we don't know where Yuri and Hapi are from. I have a sort of joke theory that Yuri is Thales's estranged son, but I don't expect that to be true.
  3. If Cindered Shadows wants to tie into the main game without directly affecting the plot (since it was originally advertised as "additional story content"), I'm wondering if they'll reveal that Patricia somehow ended up in Abyss after the Tragedy of Duscur. If they do go that way, they'll have to keep Dimitri from finding out about it since he thinks she's dead. Maybe they'll include a mysterious character who is only implied to be Patricia. Alm's mother only shows up in a drama CD, so introducing parents outside a main game isn't unprecedented.
  4. Today's English bio is for the unrivaled King of Grappling.
  5. Edelgard being the first Hresvelg to attend the academy since Ionius might be notable because she had eight older siblings who never attended. Maybe 30 years or so might just be "ages" by Fódlan standards, especially for a noble family of such high status. Unlike women, men are capable of having children until they die, but based on how they met I don't think there's too big of an age gap between Ionius and Patricia.
  6. The Wave 4 trailer has subtitles now and it shows that the character speaking at 1:01 is named Aelfric, which seems to be Alford's English name. Aelfric seems to be the name of several bishops throughout history, so it's fitting if he has something to do with the Church.
  7. Yuri talks at 1:26 and his voice is clearly different from the voice speaking at 1:01, so they're probably different people. I wish that the character lineup was bigger, but oh well. We can transfer the Wolves to the main game afterwards so it isn't too much of an issue.
  8. Wave 3 was released at 8:00 PM EST, so Wave 4 should release whatever time that is in your time zone.
  9. I haven't played Silver Snow yet so that was my mistake, as another explanation I'll just attribute it to Thales being arrogant. Thales: Mwahaha, all of Fódlan's nations have fallen! We do not even need the King of Liberation to eliminate the rest of those beasts! Honestly I'm not too troubled by the lack of explanation so I haven't thought about it too much. Maybe we'll get an explanation when Three Houses gets an artbook in four years.
  10. The final battle with Edelgard takes place two months earlier than it does in AM, so she either isn't as desperate, didn't have time to heal from her injuries in Gronder, or didn't have time to prepare her transformation. He does and we just don't see it because the game ends. Faerghus is being occupied by Rhea and the Knights of Seiros, so Cornelia doesn't attempt her coup because it's harder to take over with the Knights around. Having Byleth's help makes Claude more proactive in trying to solve Fódlan's problems himself. Ferdinand speculates that Nemesis was awakened when Shambhala was destroyed by the Javelins of Light, so he wouldn't awaken if that didn't happen in CF or AM. SS ends a month before VW so maybe his revival wasn't ready yet. Rhea is bedridden for VW's final chapter, so even if she was losing control she would be too weak to hurt anyone. Perhaps she was more injured in VW than in SS.
  11. It's established that those who slither in the dark can make artificial Crest Stones, which are mainly used to mass produce Demonic Beasts. With Aymr being created by them for Edelgard's use, the likely explanation is that Aymr's Crest Stone is also artificial. Why it has the Crest of the Beast on it isn't explained anywhere, and there's no evidence that there's any specific reason to be found in-game. The revived 10 Elites use replicas of their Heroes' Relics, so maybe Aymr's Crest Stone was originally intended for a replica of Blutgang.
  12. This seems to be an unpopular opinion, but I think picking Byleth and giving them the lords' Heroes' Relics is probably the best realistic outcome we could have gotten (adding three characters isn't a realistic outcome). And we finally got a FE stage that's actually based on a FE location, which is nice since Arena Ferox barely counts. We are also fortunate enough for the stage to be graced by the presence of Lorenz Hellman Gloucester and the almighty Gatekeeper himself.
  13. It's worth noting that the description for the trailer says that the Ashen Wolves can be brought into the main game, though it isn't clear if you have to complete Abyss Mode first or if you just have to reach a certain point. Presumably they will act as normal units once they are brought over.
  14. You know, by the time the second fighter's pass is done, Sakurai will have been working on Super Smash Bros. for almost ten years straight. Smash 4 started development in April 2012, development on Ultimate started immediately after 4's DLC was finished, and the second fighters pass is expected to be finished by December 2021. And then Sakurai will announce Fighters Pass 3, featuring eight characters releasing by 2025. Also I'm wondering of Balthus is Malos's long lost twin or something.
  15. Here's an observation: back when the datamine came out, we couldn't tell from the data which female was Constance and which was Hapi (from context clues we could determine who Yuri and Balthus were). But since they both use magic in the trailer, we can now tell that Constance is DLC3 and Hapi is DLC4. As for their Crests, we now know that
  16. Based on how the previous three fighter presentations went, it's worth mentioning ahead of time that the next character will probably be releasing tomorrow. Stay vigilant, and hopefully it won't take too long for the patch to download.
  17. Heroes getting a TMS#FE banner reminded me of this image I have...
  18. It's fine, this reminds me of the time when the admin of a Minecraft server I frequented always called me Lightning, even when there was someone actually named Lightning playing at the same time so it was hard to tell who he was referring to. P.S. Please leave Mythra alone.
  19. Once Xenoblade Definitive Edition releases, we will all have to face Rotbart the Territorial once again... Speaking of giant gorillas, while trying to finish Electra's quest I had to go past Immovable Gonzalez, which I haven't defeated at that point. I could never run past it before it one shotted me, so after doing this a few times I decided it would be easier to level up to lv99 and just fight it (this basically amounted to heading to the nearest inn). I planned on replaying Xenoblade 2 half a year ago, but Three Houses came out shortly after so I never got around to it. Hopefully Rotbart won't kill me too much if I go back to it. Speaking of Xenoblade and Three Houses, fighting the Death Knight in Mercedes's paralogue reminded me...
  20. So to commemorate the new year I went back to Xenoblade 2 to do Kora's quest and defeat Tyrannotitan Kurodil. Besides that, Three Houses, and Doom, I recently got Weegee's Mansion 3, Dragon Quest XI, and Astral Chain, as well as Pokémon Shield to see how its simultaneously better yet worse than the previous games. I started reading The Lord of the Rings too, which I've wanted to do for a while now. I'm finished with college so now I have a wealth of free time (though even if I wasn't finished I would still have the month off). On the topic of Star Wars, I haven't seen The Sky of Risewalker yet but "Weird Al" Yankovic made a song about The Phantom Menace so I think that makes it the best Star Wars movie.
  21. Buy every last one of them! WWYDI Edelgard was selling girl scout cookies and you saw Hubert glaring at you behind her?
