This past weekend, the Fire Emblem Cipher team hosted the Cipher Autumn 2018 Livesteam over NicoNico! Ryota Kawade and Young hosted the stream as usual. Joining them was voice actress Juri Kimura, the voice of both Mozu and Nyx from Fire Emblem Fates and Yuzu from Fire Emblem Echoes.
The main focus of the stream was to show off some additional cards for the latest upcoming series: S11, Glorious Twinstrike. The set features cards from The Sacred Stones, Fire Emblem Echoes, and Fire Emblem Warriors, and releases on 7 December.
In addition to showing off cards, we also got to see some new Fire Emblem merchandise, as also news and images for upcoming Cipher releases and events. Read on below for a full look at everything new from the stream!
Three characters will be appearing as new 5★ heroes in the banner: Sigurd, Deirdre, and Tailtiu. Each of them comes with at least one new weapon or skill. You can read a full listing of all units’ skills and abilities below.
A new paralogue story, also called World of Holy War, also comes out at the same time. A fourth Genealogy character, Ayra, appears in a screenshot of the map. Perhaps she’ll be a reward in an upcoming Tempest Trials?
The World of Holy War Banner and its paralogue will both go live on Monday, 16 October, at 7:00am UTC.
Sacred Coin Quests also available starting today! Defeat foes using different colours and types of units to earn Sacred Coins and Great Badges. Both items are useful to forge and upgrade Sacred Seals in the new Sacred Forge. You can see the full quest listing below.
Additionally, we’ve just entered the final round of The Blood of the Dragons Voting Gauntlet! Ninian and Female Corrin have both advanced to the finals, which will end on Sunday the 15th at 3:59am UTC.
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.
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.
