2018 is shaping up to be a great year for fans of Fire Emblem Cipher! December was a very busy month for Cipher, with the release of S11 and also Cipher’s third appearance at Comiket. Now with the beginning of the new year, we can turn our gaze forward to the card game’s next upcoming sets and events…
Cipher Series 12 will be the first set of the year, releasing on March 22nd. Titled “Raging Deluge“, it contains cards and characters of three different colours from three different worlds: Jugdral (Genealogy of the Holy War), Tellius (Path of Radiance/Radiant Dawn), and Ylisse (Awakening).
S12 is the most mysterious set to date, as we’ve seen no preview cards and very little information in general. Read on below for a look at what we know about the set so far!
As is now tradition, Fire Emblem Cipher will be heading to Comiket 93, which is perhaps the largest fan event in Japan, bringing along its usual array of exclusive (and mouthwatering) merchandise.
Like previous years, Comiket 93 will be held at the Tokyo Big Sight, between 29th and 31st December 2017. The Fire Emblem Cipher area will be located in booth 3181, 4th floor, west corporate area.
The official Cipher website has all the details, which we’ll relay below!
Of course, for most fans, the biggest highlight is the merchandise–and there’s certainly a solid selection this year.
This past Sunday, the Fire Emblem Cipher team held the Series 11 Pre-Release Livestream for the upcoming S11! As usual, Ryota Kawade and Young led the show, this time with a rather festive air. Minami Takahashi, the voice actress for Peri from Fates, was also present as a guest host throughout the show.
The main focus of the livestream was to show off cards for S11 which releases tomorrow, 7 December! The set focuses on characters from The Sacred Stones, Fire Emblem Echoes, and Fire Emblem Warriors.
In addition to showing off cards, we also got a sneak peak at some of the merchandise that will be available at Comiket 93 this year, along with some more art for the next set, S12, which will release in March. We were also joined by a number of guests throughout the show, including both new and familiar faces.
Read on below for a full look at everything the livestream had in store!
We’ve almost reached the release week for Series 11 of Fire Emblem Cipher! This week of reveals has primarily included foil cards, culminating in this dual reveal of Tiki! This spunky manakete gets both an HN and an SR based on her Fire Emblem Warriors appearance.
The remaining reveals all contained R cards and were primarily for The Sacred Stones. Eirika and Ephraim each receive an R card in the set to match their SRs and unpromoted HNs. Lyon also received an N and a promoted R card from before and after his corruption by Formotiis.
We also get both an R and an R+ card for the manakete Myrrh! Her R+ card is more peaceful while she really shows off the power of her Dragonstone in her regular R. The final reveal of the week goes to Genny from Fire Emblem Echoes. She receives an adorable R card in her canon Overclass, the Exemplar.
