Cipher: “Emma and Shade’s Cipher Classroom” Fan-translated!

Thanks to bookofholsety, who’s also known for the “Project Naga” re-translations of the Jugdral games, we’ve got something really neat for budding Cipher fans.

I’m sure a fair number of you admire the ever-growing Cipher card game, but haven’t found the time or effort to actually figure out how to play it (like me).

As it happens, Intelligent Systems created a cute and handy tutorial app on their website, which teaches fans the basics of how to play, as demonstrated by the first ever mascots–Emma and Shade. Only problem is that the app is Japanese-only just like the card game.

However, that’s no longer an issue, since the app has now been translated into English! Please click here to check it out. We’ve tested the translated app quite thoroughly, but if you encounter any technical issues, please let us know in the comments.

Now the app itself only covers the basics; if you’re interested to learn more, feel free to check out our wiki.

May Highlights: Second Famitsu Article + Heroes Event Calendar

On 15th May, Famitsu posted their second feature on Three Houses, revealing a lot of new gameplay information. Please check this article for all the details.

We’ve also been constantly updating our Three Houses section with details for all the currently revealed characters, classes, etc.

Above is the official Heroes event calendar for 10th May to 11th June 2019.

Highlights include a (presumably) Bridal-themed Special Heroes banner on 21st May, a new Mythic Hero at the end of May and finally the next New Heroes will be coming on 11th June.

Please check this article for a text breakdown.

Heroes: Grand Conquests – Branch of Fate

Starting today, a new Grand Conquests in underway in Fire Emblem Heroes. This time, the battlefield is spread across the realms of Hoshido and Nohr, from Fates. Yes, we still don’t know what the continent’s name is…

Summoners will team up with Ryoma, Xander or Corrin, who are locked in a three-way battle similar to the pivotal moment in Fates. Although on this occasion, you won’t have the choice of which army to fight for, as the RNG will decide for you instead.

Like previous Grand Conquests, the event is divided into 3 rounds, each lasting around 2 days each (starting 4 hours after the next daily rollover). Each round, there will be quests where you can earn 1 Orb and more Conquest Lances to keep fighting.

From here, I don’t think there are many continents that remain untouched by war. Perhaps they’ll cycle through past continents, although we’ll probably end up fighting on Fódlan at some point in the future.

Fire Emblem Cipher Festival 2019: Merchandise + Thracia Art Exhibition

Back in April, the Fire Emblem Cipher team shared most of the details for the upcoming Fire Emblem Cipher Festival 2019 events, to be held in Japan during June. Recently, they updated their webpage with a few more details.

Firstly, the merchandise listing has been expanded, beyond the single picture and simple list from before. There are now better pictures of all the products, plus a proper look at the crazy expensive A3 acrylic card. You can find the information in English further down this article.

Additionally, by popular demand, the Thracia 776 art exhibition that featured at Fire Emblem Expo earlier this month will be making a comeback at the Cipher Festival events. The exhibition showcased all the known official artworks plus some artwork from the ending sequence.
