Cipher S13 Weekly Recap: Daily Card Reveals, Promos, & Livestream Reminder!

We’re less than a week away from the S13 release of Fire Emblem Cipher! @fecipher has been very busy sharing a multitude of cards this week. The highlight of this week’s reveals arrived today, two gorgeous joined-art SR+ cards of Marth and Caeda from Shadow Dragon!

Two more SR cards were also revealed this week, Hector from Blazing Sword and Sharena from Heroes! Sharena‘s card features some other female FE protagonists in the background, while Hector’s card joins Lyn and Eliwood to form a long joined-art panorama. @fecipher also showed off a text-free version of the art over Twitter.

The final reveals for the week go to Norne and Kiran. Norne gets both an R and an alternate art R+ card. Like Sharena, Kiran’s card also contains some other Heroes characters. The included characters are a reference to the original opening move for the game.

This week also brought us a few new Heroes-based promo cards! Both Sharena and Fjorm get special promos in the latest issues of Nintendo Dream and Dengeki Nintendo respectively. Each issue comes with two copies of its respective promo.

Furthermore, the official Cipher website updated with higher quality versions of the S13 Tournament Promo cards! These cards will be available in special packs at Cipher events in Japan starting in July. The booster pack image features Lyn’s art.

Finally, the S13 pre-release livestream airs tomorrow! As usual, Kawade and Young will be hosting. Three guests will be appearing: Yuuki Kuwahara (VA for Ophelia and Nieve), Makiko Ohmoto (VA for Lyn), and Tsutomu Kitanishi. You can watch the stream over Nico Nico here. It will begin airing at 8pm JST and last about two hours.

Cipher Series 13 will release just next week on 28 June! For further discussion about Cipher, feel free to join us in the Cipher subforum on the forums! You can also check out the Cipher Wiki for translations of the cards and more detailed information.

    Why does this article refer to the chaos lady as Nieve when the cipher section of this site refers to her as Niamh? Not really sure what her name is.

    • Kirie

      Nieve/Niamh does not have an official English name. So think of it something like how people spelled character names from Japanese-only FE games before Heroes gave everything an official spelling/localization. I use “Nieve” because it is the official Japanese “romanji” name for the character as revealed on the FE Cipher site. “Niamh” is the Irish/Gaelic spelling for an Irish female given name pronounced in the same manner (and of which “Nieve” is a common Anglicization). The use of that name comes from bookofholsety, who provides the majority of the English translations for Cipher cards as seen on the official site wiki.

      For what it’s worth, both names are pronounced the same, with “Nieve” looking closer to how it sounds when spoken (in Japanese, it’s written as 二―ヴ).

        I like Nieve. It means Snow in Spanish.
