It’s the last full week before the release of Series 18 of Fire Emblem Cipher! The @fecipher twitter account has been busy with exciting reveals, including two of the remaining SR cards. As expected, one of them is for Male Byleth, the leading figure for the Three Houses portion of the set. The other goes to Tharja, her her SR since S1!
We also got two new R cards this week, both of them for new characters as well! Ingrid gets an R as a Pegasus Knight to represent the Blue Lions. Valter also makes his Cipher debut this set!
Due to Respect for the Aged day in Japan this past Monday, we only got these four reveals, but we’ll be getting a lot more soon with the S18 Pre-Release Livestream! Join Ryota Kawade, Kubocchan, Hibiku Yamamura (voice of Rinea and Shade) and Yusuke Kobayashi (voice of M!Byleth) live at 8:00pm JST today.
If you’re interested in watching along live, you can find details here. They’ll be opening packs, so we’ll get to see many new cards in person for the latest set. Kawade will also likely show some new art and promo information. It should be a lot of fun!
Additionally, the official site was recently updated with a deck list for the S18 ST Deck! The deck includes exclusive cards for F!Byleth, Sothis, Edelgard, Dimitri, Claude, and Flayn. Furthermore, Byleth and the Lords will also get holofoil prints! You can see a translated list of the whole deck here.
That’s all we have for now! Cipher Series 18 will release just next week on 26 September! Our last pre-release article will come next week with livestream info. 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.
