We’re another week closer to the release of S19 of Fire Emblem Cipher, and @fecipher has been busy with reveals. Finishing up the week is our latest Three Houses SR card, this time for Hubert! He appears here as the Dark Bishop class.
Two other 3H characters are also making their Cipher debut this set, both revealed this week. Sylvain from Blue Lions and Lorenz from Golden Deer each score two cards. Sylvain’s promoted card is an R foil.
The Twitter also showed off two more characters from Genealogy as well, Ulster and Arthur. Both have been included in Cipher sets before, but not since S8, which will be rotating out soon.
Additionally, Cipher had a few other announcements today related to upcoming events. Hit the “Read More” button for our first glimpse at some of the Comiket 97 merchandise and also a surprise guest for the S19 Pre-Release Livestream.
In addition to the card reveals, the Cipher Frontier column also updated today. You can see the latest column here. This update contains our very first look at some of the exclusive merchandise that will be available at this winter’s Comiket 97!
First up is a special Cipher edition of Karuta, a type of Japanese playing cards. The cards are the same size as regular Cipher cards and feature Cipher art. You can see some cards below, with more in the column article linked above.
One other piece of merchandise revealed so far as a USB drive based on the OG Falchion design. It has a 4GB capacity.
The Comiket page on the official site is also updated with a merchandise and price list. In addition to the Karuta cards and USB drive, there will also be:
