It all makes sense now

the new fire emblem hero was created by a vtuber designer

Nintendo kicked off its latest broadcast with the official reveal of Fire Emblem Engage, arriving on Switch in 2023.

During the first look, players were introduced to the game’s protagonist – a new character rocking a red and blue hairstyle. If you’re wondering why this new hero looks like a VTuber, it turns out the illustrator involved actually has a bit of a history in this field.

Artist and illustrator Mika Pikazo took credit (via Twitter) for this new character. She’s previously helped design the VTubers Hakos Baelz, Kaguya Luna, and Pinky Pop Hepburn (thanks, Kotaku). Pikazo is also known for the character Sei Shounagon in the Fate/Grand Order mobile game releases, and the light novel series Apocalypse Witch.

The main talking point at the moment seems to be focused on the character’s hair. So far, the internet and social media have drawn comparisons to the Pepsi logo and even toothpaste:

Fire Emblem fans are eating good this year!! Everybody tweeting about Pepsi/toothpaste at the same time was fun 😂👍 pic.twitter.com/0iEKgxkVVk— jani @ slow replies apologies (@janiforme) September 13, 2022

I don't see the problem here…haven't Fire Emblem characters always had toothpaste hair? pic.twitter.com/t0OptNNCrW— Zion Grassl (@ZionDood) September 13, 2022
