Cipher S8 Weekly Recap: Daily Reveals & Pre-Release Livestream Info

It’s only one more week until the release of Series 8 of Fire Emblem Cipher! @FECipher has been giving us a number of interesting reveals, including this cool joined art of Seliph and Julius from Genealogy of the Holy War that was just released today. They are both SR cards.

Tine from Genealogy was also revealed this week. She gets an R and an alternate art R+ card. Awakening reveals include an SR card for Female Robin and an R for Dark Knight Tharja. Robin is the sixth and final Awakening SR in the set.

The final reveal of the week is a spoiler to those who have not completed Awakening, so I won’t be embedding it. You can click here to view it instead.

Our last bit of S8 news will arrive in the S8 pre-release livestream tomorrow. Kawade and Young will be hosting as usual. They will be joined by a number of guests, including Eri Suzuki (VA for Soleil), Kumi Tanaka (VA for Nowi and Aversa), Yusuke Kozaki (artist and character designer for Awakening and Fates), and Kenichi Hatori (weapon designer).

 

Like most pre-release livestreams, we can expect lots of pack opening! They will show off many new cards showcased from the new set, live and in-person. We will hopefully also get to see the booster box goodies for S8, including preview cards. Other possible news reveals include S9 artwork and firmer details for S10.

Cipher Series 8 will release next week March 17th. Our last news article before release will be covering tomorrow’s livestream. 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.

    Does anyone know if Chrom is going to be the only one who has an SR+ card?

    • Kirie

      There have always been 6 SR+ cards per set, usually half per colour, but not always. We’ve also already seen the SR+ for Shannan, which you can view next to his regular SR here: https://serenesforest.net/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/shannan-sr-plus.png

      The other 4 SR+ cards have not been revealed yet. Seliph will likely get one, and probably Julia for the other Genealogy ones. I’m also betting that F!Robin will get an SR+ card on the Awakening side, but I’m not sure about the third.

    Tine’s card looks so cool. I can’t wait for more Genealogy cards to come out.
