Now that we’re getting closer to the Fire Emblem Cipher Series 9 release, daily reveals are finally starting! @fecipher started the flow of reveals on Monday with these two cards of Alm and Celica from Fire Emblem Echoes.
These particular cards are not actually a part of the booster series, but are instead exclusive to the structured deck. Entitled “Lands of the Gods”, the deck includes 60 cards, all of which feature characters from Echoes. Some cards are exclusive, others are reprints from the booster series. Alm and Celica will be included in both foil and non-foil varieties.
Half of the cards in the S9 booster series is made of red cards devoted to Echoes characters, while the other half is evenly split between green and purple. Among the green cards revealed this week is our first SR for Skrimir from Radiant Dawn. We also get to see Skrimir’s unpromoted card and also a card for Rafiel.
For purple cards this week, we get lovely joined art cards of Roy from Binding Blade and Al from Hasha no Tsurugi. Jemmie also gets to shine in the spotlight as a rare foil card. One of Jemmie’s card effects references having her brother, Zeed, on the field, so we can also expect to see him included in the set.
More Cipher news will be coming shortly in the Cipher Spring livestream in just a few hours! Ryota Kawade and Young will be hosting the broadcast as usual over NicoNico. It’s scheduled to begin at 8pm JST on 13 May. Hibiki Yamamura, the voice actress for Rinea from Echoes, will also be appearing as a guest.
In addition to showcasing more S9 cards, we’ll likely also get some news and art for S10 and S11 sets arriving later this year. We can also hope to get some further information on the upcoming “Go! Go! Summer Tour!” in July. Additionally, Kawade has confirmed that they will be discussing the Cipher collaboration DLC planned for Echoes.
Cipher Series 9 will release next month on June 22nd! Until then, we’ll continue to share new Cipher news as it arrives. For further discussion and information about Cipher, feel free to join us in the Cipher subforum of the Serenes Forest forums!
