Another week of Fire Emblem Cipher reveals from the @FEcipher twitter account has given us some further glimpses into what we can expect in Series 8, including these gorgeous cards of Julia from Genealogy of the Holy War that were just revealed today!
As expected, Julia earned herself a coveted SR slot next to other important Genealogy characters such as Seliph, Altena, and Shannan. The remaining two SRs are still unknown, but it’s very likely that Julius will be one of them.
Speaking of SRs, the fifth Awakening SR was also revealed this week, featuring Cherche as a Griffon Rider. Meanwhile, Virion and Owain join the party as Rare foil cards.
The final daily card reveal of the week is actually one reveal given to two separate but associated characters: Hannibal and Coirpre from Genealogy.
Moments ago, Fire Emblem Heroes greeted us with a data update containing several new units, a new Paralogue and a new Focus, which can be seen as Sibling Bonds. This new Banner and Focus group gives us a single new Focus with six units (the most in a Focus thus far). There is only one Focus this time, but it’s the largest Focus released to date.
This new Banner bring us three new maps and six new characters, including Eldigan, Olwen, Reinhardt and Lachesis (from Fire Emblem Thracia 776), Klein (Fire Emblem Binding Blade), Sanaki (Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn). Sanaki marks the first appearance of a character from any of the console Fire Emblem games released internationally, which is a surprise given the anticipation of Ike, who heralds from two popular internationally released games.
Additionally, Launch Celebration Part 4 exists, which is a two part map granting orbs as a prize. Lastly, a new banner appears to have been leaked…
The previous week has been very generous with card reveals for the upcoming Series 8 of Fire Emblem Cipher. Some of the most exciting reveals were posted earlier this week by @FireEmblemJP, giving us our first look at Cipher cards for Alm and Celica from the upcoming Fire Emblem Echoes.
These two promo cards will be included in some Echoes releases in Japan. The Celica card is exclusive to the Valentia Complete edition of the game, while Alm’s card will be included in all special editions, and also some first-run prints of the regular physical release.
Interestingly, the cards also include shots of some other Echoes characters. The characters on Alm’s card are Gray, Tobin, Kliff, and the new character Effy. Celica’s card features Genny, Mae, and Boey.
@FECipher also released a large number of cards this week. On the Awakening side, we get an abundance of double reveals. Two cards each are revealed for Aversa and Noire, an unpromoted and promoted card for both.
Aversa’s unpromoted card shows her as a Pegasus Knight, presumably before the events of the game take place, and her promoted card is surprisingly an SR. This makes her the 4th confirmed Awakening SR card after Risen King Chrom, Exalt Chrom, and Frederick.
The last Awakening reveal is a very interesting use of alternate art cards…
We’re now another week closer to the release of Series 8 of Fire Emblem Cipher! As excitement for the set continues, we have many more reveals and promotional materials to share, including this beautiful joined artwork of Tiki and Lucina from Fire Emblem Awakening as R+ alternate art cards.
Other Awakening cards revealed this week include Lucina’s regular art R card, an SR card for Frederick, and a non-signed version of the Exalt Chrom SR. Characters from Genealogy of the Holy War also made an appearance in this week’s batch: an R card for Fabail and an HN card for Ulster.
