Cipher S16 Weekly Recap: Card Reveals, Promo Goodie Images, & Livestream Details!

It’s been another fun week of card reveals for Fire Emblem Cipher! With Series 16 covering so many titles, @fecipher spread the card colours pretty evenly this week. Still, Binding Blade pulled ahead with two big profile reveals: Fae & Sophia!

Fae gets two cards to herself, a Cost 1 and a shiny R foil. Sophia’s cards on the other hand are a bit more interesting. In her SR on the right she’s wielding the legendary tome Apocalypse, placing her in the large joined-art of the set. With Roy in the centre with the Binding Blade and Dieck wielding Armads, we have only six characters to go.

Two of the other reveals of the week, like Fae, show off Cost 1 N cards paired with an R foil. Zelgius comes as the green Tellius representative for the week, and Conrad as the red Echoes representative. Furthermore, Conrad’s foil shown here is actually a special R+ version, signed by his Japanese VA, Takuya Satou!

The final card reveals of the week feature Heroes representatives: Alfonse and Sharena! Both cards take inspiration from their special Spring versions in game. This is notable as seasonal Heroes characters have traditionally been promos, not set cards. Perhaps we’ll see some more seasonal characters with the remaining FEH cards?

In addition to the twitter reveals, we also got some more official site updates recently. Although there’s nothing particularly new or noteworthy in these updates, they do provide some nicer, high quality images of set related promotional goodies.

These special Preview Promos, Marker Cards, and Promo Sleeves will come in each S16 booster box. As usual, you get one random design from either option.

We also get nice quality images of the release promotion sticker sheets! One design of either A, B, or C will come with every booster box (or 16 packs) you purchase. As usual, AmiAmi is taking part in this campaign. Good news for us international fans once again!

And, finally, we have some more details and links for the upcoming S16 Pre-Release Livestream! Rina Hidaka (VA for Veronica) and Juri Kimura (VA for Nyx and Mozu) will be joining as guests.

The stream will air on 16 March at 20:00 JST as usual (11:00 UTC) live over NicoNico and YouTube. You can bookmark the links to prepare on the official site. The stream should be a fun occasion of lots of pack opening and Cipher news. Look forward to it!

That’s all we have for now! Cipher Series 16 will release later this month on 22 March. In the meantime, it’ll be an exciting month of news, reveals, and speculation. 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.
