Yesterday, the Fire Emblem Cipher team hosted another livestream as a pre-release event for the upcoming Series 6, which releases on September 29th. During the steam, they showcased many of the missing cards from the series, and also discussed upcoming events and later series releases.
Ryota Kawade (Cipher Producer), Young (from Intelligent Systems), and Eri Suzuki (Soleil’s Japanese VA) were our starting hosts. They opened up the stream by showing off a few pieces of artwork from the upcoming Part 2 of the Tellius Recollection books featuring Micaiah and Ike from Radiant Dawn.
Afterwards, they started showing off some cards by opening one of the ST Decks. Kawade showed off some of the deck’s holo cards, such as the starring lord card for Sigurd from Genealogy of the Holy War, the holo versions of the joined artwork of younger Quan, Sigurd, and Eldigan, and other ST Deck cards of Lex and Azel.
On Saturday, August 27th, the Fire Emblem Cipher team hosted the Summer Cipher Livestream on NicoNico. The stream focused on showing off some cards from the upcoming Series 6 and talking about the recent Cipher Caravan events, but it also showed off some new artwork for Series 7 and made a formal announcement for Series 8.
The stream was hosted by Cipher producer Ryoto Kawade, and he was joined by Eri Suzuki (Soleil’s Japanese VA) and Young (with Intelligent Systems). After some opening banter, Kawade formally announced that Genealogy of the Holy War would soon be released on the new Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console in Japan.
In fact, not long after the stream aired, Genealogy was swiftly added to the Virtual Console, joining the ranks of Dark Dragon and Sword of Light, Gaiden and Mystery of the Emblem as other retro Fire Emblems available to play on Japanese 3DS systems (the latter, being a Super Famicom title, is likewise exclusive to the new 3DS).
Afterward, discussion then turned to the Cipher Caravan events that had just finished up the previous weekend. Many photos were shared, and the final winning colours for the Caravan Derby were announced. The events seemed to be a great success! Hopefully we will see more special Cipher events held in the future.
