This past Saturday, the Fire Emblem Cipher team held another successful livestream over NicoNico! Ryota Kawade (Cipher Producer) and Young (Intelligent Systems) were joined once again by Eri Suzuki (voice of Soleil, Delthea, and Emma) to start off the show.
The main focus of the stream was to show off cards from Series 10, Crossroads, which releases this week on 21 September. The set contains cards from Thracia 776, Fates, and Fire Emblem Heroes. We also got to have some fun with a few other guests, and get a few more tidbits of news and art for upcoming Cipher sets and events.
On Thursday, March 16th, Series 8 of Fire Emblem Cipher was released to the public! A welcome blend of old game and new, the set focuses on characters from both Awakening and the second generation of Genealogy of the Holy War.
For once, Chrom gets to be the star of Awakening, earning himself a top-billed slot and two SR cards. His first SR is a gorgeous shot of him ascending to the position of Exalt as illustrated by Kotaro Yamada.
His other SR is quite a bit darker, showing how Chrom might be in an alternate world where he and Robin fail in their plans to defeat Grima. This Chrom, dubbed the Undead King of Despair, wears a smug expression and wields a corrupted Falchion as he rules over a ruined city.
This past Saturday, Ryota Kawade, Eri Suzuki, and Young hosted the latest installment of the Fire Emblem Cipher Livestreams. The focus of this weekend’s livestream was the upcoming release of Series 8 which falls this week on March 17th.
The beginning of the livestream focused on some non-Cipher news that’s already been covered in depth in separate articles, including merchandise from the Faith & Recollection concert, and some new art for Fire Emblem Echoes. Otherwise, we got our first glimpses at some of the goodies that will be included in S8 booster boxes.
The preview promo cards for S9 are of Alm and Celica, made with their new Echoes official art by Hidari. Each card is also packaged with a holographic marker card. Alm’s marker card comes with Cipher artwork of some of the main Lords, while Celica’s uses pixel Lord art. The art was previously used on merchandise from Comiket 91.
It’s only one more week until the release of Series 8 of Fire Emblem Cipher! @FECipher has been giving us a number of interesting reveals, including this cool joined art of Seliph and Julius from Genealogy of the Holy War that was just released today. They are both SR cards.
Tine from Genealogy was also revealed this week. She gets an R and an alternate art R+ card. Awakening reveals include an SR card for Female Robin and an R for Dark Knight Tharja. Robin is the sixth and final Awakening SR in the set.
The final reveal of the week is a spoiler to those who have not completed Awakening, so I won’t be embedding it. You can click here to view it instead.
