Cipher S5 Weekly Recap: Alternate Art & Magazine Promos

The highlight from this week’s Fire Emblem Cipher Series 5 reveals is a set of 2 cards featuring Queen Elinicia from Radiant Dawn. The left side card shows her regular R card artwork while the right is her R+ card, which not only features gold text but also special alternate artwork that is exclusive to the + version of the card.


Starting with Series 5, all R+ and SR+ cards will feature exclusive artwork. Similar cards for both SR Sanaki and R Dieck were previewed during last week’s livestream, but Elincia is the first one to be officially revealed.

Other cards showcased on the @fecipher twitter account this week include HN Perceval, HN Clarine, and SR Fir from Binding Blade as well an N card for Haar from Radiant Dawn.

We’re also lucky enough to get a sneak peak of some new magazine promo cards that will be available in Japan in the coming months. Lilina will be included in the August issue of Nintendo Dream, and Roy in the August issue of Dengeki Nintendo.

Both magazines come with 2 copies of the card in question, so you can keep a copy for yourself and trade a copy to a friend. Magazines can be ordered for international delivery from Amazon Japan.

Cipher Series 5 will release in little over a month on June 23rd. We’ll continue sharing new cards and artwork as they’re released in the meantime. For more information about Cipher, including links and information on where to purchase cards outside of Japan, please check out my Newcomer’s Guide to FE Cipher.
