The Fire Emblem Cipher Series 7 booster boxes may have already been released, but this particular set also has a large amount of related promotional cards. Many promos were still unrevealed by the time the set itself released, but now we can take a look at them and hopefully learn how to get our hands on them…
As usual, the first 2 promos were the preview promos included in the S7 Booster Boxes, and the next six are all special promos available to players who compete in Cipher tournaments in Japan.
Athos (P07-003PR) and Oboro (P07-004PR) are both completely new cards while Hector (P07-005PR), Nino (P07-006PR), Takumi (P07-007PR), and Sakura (P07-008PR) are alternate art reprints of cards available in S7 booster boxes. These are all characters from Blazing Sword and Fire Emblem Fates, the two featured games in S7.
This Christmas, Nintendo of Europe has a special treat for owners of Fire Emblem Fates. From 22nd December 2016 to 5th January 2017, all DLC for Fates is 30% off the usual price.
If you’re getting the game for Christmas or you’ve been considering getting the DLC, this is a great opportunity. As for those of us who got the DLC beforehand, well, at least we got to play it earlier!
The best bit is that all DLC is included, which means the Conquest, Birthright and Revelation story paths and both of the Map Packs are all eligible–a double bargain considering they’re already discounted.
Below, we have a helpful chart of all the discount DLC and some quick thoughts about each, in case you’re wondering which ones to go for.
Fire Emblem Cipher‘s seventh expansion, Rise to Honor, was finally released last week! This set features cards based on characters from Blazing Sword alongside Hoshidans from Fire Emblem Fates. Now that all of the cards are available, we can finally take a look at everything this set brings to the game.
For the first time, Cipher S7 booster boxes included special holographic marker cards as a promotional gift, each box coming with one of two cards. One features artwork of Marth, along with several of his friends, used in a promo card in the Fire Emblem Festival DVD The other is a particularly festive Camilla, originally from a Comiket89 promo card.
Today, Nintendo UK released a short video detailing the history of the Fire Emblem series in Europe.
While there’s nothing particular new for diehard fans (and a few incorrect or misleading facts), it’s nice to see Nintendo trying to hype up the series in the launch up to Christmas.
In addition, Nintendo has started up an official Facebook page for the Fire Emblem series (for the UK).
Although this can be seen as a push for Fire Emblem Fates, which we imagine is still selling well, we do wonder if this is all related to the upcoming Fire Emblem mobile game launching in early 2017.
Especially as the page promises to share news for the series–and there’s not much else on the radar. Of course, news of a new mainline entry wouldn’t be amiss!
