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.
Today is the Summer Solstice, and Fire Emblem Heroes is celebrating with a new batch of Special Heroes! Spend some Orbs on the Summer’s Arrival Banner for your shot at summer versions of Tana, Cordelia, Innes, and Noire! You can take a look at our earlier article for a trailer and skill breakdown.
Paralogue 21, Summer’s Arrival, also joins the game today! Complete all three chapters and their associated Lunatic quests to earn up to 12 Orbs. Check out quest details below. Heroes players will also get an additional 13 Orbs over the next ten days with a new Log-In Bonus.
The Summer’s Arrival Banner will be around for a bit over a month, ending on 25 July. Likely, we’ll also get a re-run of last year’s Ylissean Summer Banner sometime during the coming month. More new Summer Heroes will probably be coming along next month as well.
Additionally, the second round of Arena Quests also begins today! You can see the quest listing in our original article for the quest line. We’ve also reached the halfway point in Tempest Trials+, so those Daily Quests now give double rewards.
When you’re ready to take a break from Tempest Trials+, head over to Special Maps for a GHB Revival event! Grand Hero Battle Revival: OIiver is back in Heroes, along with quests for Orbs as well.
If you weren’t able to beat all of Oliver’s maps before, now is the perfect time to try again. Furthermore, everyone has access to new quests involving the GHB! Defeat Oliver’s map under various conditions to earn an additional four Orbs and another 3★ copy of Oliver. You can see full quest details below.
Grand Hero Battle Revival: OIiver will be around for a bit over a week, ending on 28 June.
Additionally, @FE_Heroes_JP has given us a teaser for upcoming Special Heroes banner later this week! As expected, the banner will feature Summer Heroes. The silhouettes show a male and a female, as well as a tiny crab! Who do you think they could be?
This banner is scheduled to begin later this week on 21 June and is scheduled to last a full month. We’ll likely get a trailer revealing the units and their skills tomorrow.
@fecipher has been busy this week showing off many cards for the upcoming Fire Emblem Cipher Series 13. One of those cards is the very first SR+ card in the set! It features Fjorm of Heroes, shown here with her N card, and signed by her Japanese VA, Rie Takahashi. We also get an SR for Canas from Blazing Sword.
In fact, FE7 scores most of the reveals for this week. In addition to Canas above, we also get two sets of cards for brother and sister Karel and Karla. The siblings each get an unpromoted regular card as well as a promoted R foil card.
Shadow Dragon snags the final card reveal of the week. The gentle cleric Lena gets an R foil card as well as an alternate art R+. The R+ card is notable for featuring both Navarre and Julian in the background.
