Alm arrived!

My amiibo obsession remains as strong as ever, and the biggest chunk of that obsession is reserved for Fire Emblem amiibo. Move over Mario, I will always hold a candle for Roy, Lucina and their quasi-medieval chums.

Speaking of which, Alm arrived today.

Alm is one of the two main protagonists in the recently released Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, a game I’ve still yet to buy. But sod the game, it’s the amiibos I’m after. Well, that’s not quite true – I will get the game eventually, but right now I’m halfway through Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest, and I plan to see off both that and its companion Fire Emblem Fates: Revelations before I dive into Echoes.

As ever, the level of detail on the amiibo is superb – but I’m not quite sure about his eyes. Is it me, or do they follow you around the room? Anyway, Alm is now on the shelf next to Ike, Roy, Lucina, Robin and Marth – although I may have to put him in a drawer if he starts creeping me out too much.

And the best news? Celica is also due to arrive later this week. Oh happy day!


  1. Everyone keeps talking about Fire Emblem lately. It’s a series that’s on my list to play someday, but I just don’t know when I’ll have the time to catch up on it at this point. Maybe someday…

    1. If you do, start with Fire Emblem Awakening – easily the best one, in my opinion. They’re all good though, and I have a soft spot for the GBA ones.
