Echoes: Cipher Companions DLC Out Today!

Today, the final piece of DLC for Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia is available to download in Japan and the West. (As soon as the eShop updates in each respective region.)

As we’ve reported in the past, Cipher Companions features 2 maps that, together, allow you to recruit the four Cipher mascots to your party: Emma, Randal (formerly known as Lando), Yuzu and Shade.

This is a very interesting turn of events given that the Cipher card game–where these characters come from–is currently only released in Japan and even the English DLC descriptions acknowledge this.

In any case, you can find the new characters’ profiles and detailed breakdown below!

Heroes: Upcoming Maintenance & Michalis Flies Again

To prepare for version 1.5.0 of Fire Emblem Heroes, the game will go offline between 26th June 2016 at 11 pm and 27th June 2016 at 1 am (UTC; times are approximate). No details about the contents of this update or its release date have been provided.

Additionally, while it was known to data-miners, the official Japanese Twitter has revealed that the Michalis Grand Hero Battle will be returning tomorrow. Presumably like other repeats, there will be related quests to earn more copies of Michalis.

Fire Emblem E-Zine is Back!

Serenes Forest is home to quite a few talented artists. Several of those artists have been collaborating efforts for many moons now, and have finally finished preparations for the second annual version of Together We Ride.

 

Together We Ride is a zine that explores the similarities that can be found throughout the Fire Emblem series’ considerable cast. Each individual artwork in this zine features multiple characters spanning across nine games among the Fire Emblem series. Volume two consists of thirty+ full-color illustrated pages by twenty-two artists and writers (listed below), each featuring combinations chosen by them.

The second issue of Together We Ride is now available for pre-order, and will focus on elements from Fire Emblem Fates and Fire Emblem Heroes, with love for many prior versions. Pre-orders will be up until June 30. Of course, there’s a pre-order bonus…several, actually. Fans who pre-order will receive a sticker set and postcards, and for more dedicated fans, an adorable 1.5″ wooden charm featuring everybody’s favorite Fire Emblem Heroes avian mascot.

Full details on the preorder info can be found below:
