Cipher Winter 2018 Livesteam: New Cards & Artwork for Upcoming Sets!

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!

Cipher S12 Weekly Recap: First Daily Reveals + Winter Livestream Reminder!

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.

First things first, everyone who visits will receive a pair of cutesy (young) Tiki and Nowi promotional cards. These will be handed out once the event ends and each set is limited to one per person. So no leaving and re-entering to grab loads!

Cipher: S12 Sleeve Designs & Ad Image + Winter Livestream Info!

We’re still in a slow period for Fire Emblem Cipher, but some tidbits of information have recently come to light. First and foremost is the official unveiling of the Cipher S12 sleeve designs which feature art from the upcoming set.

The four designs are: Micaiah and the Lehran’s Medallion art from Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn, Nowi from Awakening, and pixel art of various FE Cipher Lords. Sadly for Genealogy fans, Jugdrali art won’t be getting sleeves this time around. You can pre-order all four sleeve packs from AmiAmi or CDJapan.

Additionally, an S12 advertisement released in Japan gives us our first glimpse at S12 card mock ups. We get four green cards for Possessed Ike, Astrid, Fiona, and Stefan; two blue cards for Nowi and Chrom; and two yellow cards for Sigurd and Ares.

All of these cards feature artwork that’s already been revealed, but there is no text yet. Also, it’s important to keep in mind that these mock ups do not necessarily reflect the final cards. For example, even though Ike has a N/HN border in this card, it’s more likely that the final product will be an R or an SR.

Finally, @fecipher has shared some details for the upcoming Winter Livestream! Ryota Kawade and Young will be joined by Yuuki Kuwahara, the voice actress for Effie and Ophelia in Fates. A teaser image released alongside the stream announcement also hints at the appearance of another Cipher original character!

The livestream will take place on 17 February. Based on previous schedules, this means we will likely start getting daily S12 card reveals on Monday the 12th, or perhaps even as soon as the 5th! Regardless, it will be nice to finally start seeing some cards from the set.

For now, that’s all the news we have, but hopefully more will be coming shortly!
