With the 8th series of Fire Emblem Cipher recently released, it’s time to look at what this card game has in store for the future. Series 9 will be bringing the game into its third year, and has already started off by breaking some traditions…
Cipher fans were fully expecting that Ryota Kawade would reveal details of the set during the Autumn Livestream in November. However, instead of a full-blown announcement, we received little more than a teaser.
Kawade announced that Series 9 would feature three main themes, as opposed to most sets that focus on two at most. He also revealed the first part of that theme: Hasha no Tsurugi, the Binding Blade spin-off manga.
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.
Today, the Fire Emblem Cipher team held the third seasonal livestream of 2016, with the aim to deliver information about upcoming Cipher releases and events.

The hosts today were Ryoto Kawade and Young from Intelligent Systems, Juri Kimura (Mozu and Nyx’s Japanese VA), plus special guests Kotaro Yamada (artist of the Hasha no Tsurugi manga) and Kaori Nazuka (Hinoka’s Japanese VA).
The first topic of discussion was Series 7 “Rise to Honour”, which launches on 8th December 2016 and includes cards from Blazing Sword and Fire Emblem Fates Revelation (Hoshidan side).
Above are previews of the Series 7 booster pack and booster box, the former of which already popped up on the official website earlier this week.
