On Saturday 17 February, the Fire Emblem Cipher team held the Cipher Winter 2018 Livesteam over NicoNico! Ryota Kawade and Young hosted as usual, this time alongside Yuuki Kuwahara (VA for Effie and Ophelia from Fates).
The spotlight of the livestream was centered on cards from the latest upcoming expansion: Series 12, Raging Deluge. S12 releases in late March and features cards from Path of Radiance/Radiant Dawn, Awakening, and Genealogy of the Holy War.
The stream isn’t just about new cards, however. We also got our first artwork for the next set, S13, an in-person look at some upcoming merchandise, and also a teaser for S14. Read down below for more details!
Welcome to the first Fire Emblem Cipher S12 Weekly Recap! This 12th set contains cards from Path of Radiance/Radiant Dawn, Awakening, and Genealogy of the Holy War. Now that we’re getting closer to the set’s release date, @fecipher has began its daily reveals. Let’s take a look at our first cards of the series!
Tellius cards form the main focus of S12, and the first half of the set is dedicated to them. Most of the cards revealed this week are from Tellius, including the very first card shown off on Monday: an unpromoted N card for Ike, his second cost 1 card. This card’s reveal was paired off with a digital version of the Medallion artwork.
We also got two N cards of a young Elena and Gawain, both together in a gorgeous joined-art panorama. All of these cards are drawn by Senri Kita, the official character portrait artist for the Tellius games. Kita has been a very prolific artist in Cipher as well, particularly for Tellius-related cards.
The final Tellius reveal of the week is also our first SR, and one of the most interesting cards of the set. It features a berserk Ike, possessed by the power of Lehran’s Medallion. This Ike is a beast on the Cipher battlefield, but unleashing his power also destroys your own allied cards. Use him with caution.
The twitter has also revealed two cards for each of the other games in the set. For Awakening, they shared N cards for both Chrom and Walhart, showcasing the Valmese focus in this portion of the set. On the Genealogy side, we get both an N and HN card for Eldigan, the main lord for the yellow block in S12.
