Welcome to the first Fire Emblem Cipher S16 Weekly Recap! This set, “O Courage! O Soul Aflame!“, features characters from Binding Blade, Shadows of Valentia, Radiant Dawn, and Heroes. As we near the set’s release on 22 March, @fecipher will be sharing cards every weekday.
Binding Blade seems to be the leading title for the set. As such, it has the most reveals so far, including our first SR card! Roy, of course, gets the leading SR slot. You can also see a Cost 1 card for both him and Lilina.
We also got two cards each for SoV and RD. The Empress of Begnion, Sanaki, starts off with two non-holo cards. Celica will also be leading the SoV portion and we get to see her as both a Cost 1 and an R foil card.
The final reveal of the week is a colourless card for Eir, the latest leading lady of Book III in Heroes.
These are all the cards we get to see so far, but many more will be coming soon! Airing tomorrow is the Cipher Winter Livesteam. Joining the stream are two VA guests: Jun Fukuyama (Roy, Innes) and Minami Takahashi (Peri, Alice). Ryota Kawade and Young will be hosting, as usual.
In addition to showing off more S16 cards, we should also get some Cipher news, including art for upcoming sets. Now that we have a final release date for Three Houses, we could also learn when the new game will appear in Cipher too. We’ll post up an article with details after the stream. If you’d like to watch along live, check here for more details.
That’s all we have for now! Cipher Series 16 will release next month on 22 March. In the meantime, it’ll be an exciting month of news, reveals, and speculation.
