Fire Emblem Cipher Series 15 has been out for a month and Comiket has come and gone. With the new year here, let’s now take a look ahead for what’s in store with Cipher Series 16!

The series is titled 「勇気よ燃ゆる魂よ」 in Japanese, which roughly translated to “Courage, Burning Soul.” It will feature cards and characters from four titles:

Heroes: Grand Conquests return!

Grand Conquests make a return this week, with the battles being brought to the land of Magvel from The Sacred Stones.

Lyon, the Prince of Grado, Innes, the Prince of Frelia, and Ephraim, the Prince of Renais, will fight for control over the continent over three different battles, each lasting two days. The event is active until the 24th of January, 6:59AM UTC.

I suppose if the map allowed for more armies, we could also have seen L’Arachel and Joshua (spoilers?) representing their own lands, but alas. Maybe in some future update.

Fight to help expand your army’s territory.

The more points you earn, the more Tiers you unlock, giving you rewards such as Orbs, and allowing your scores to influence neighbouring areas of your fights.

The more area score your army has by the end of each battle, the more Feathers (and Arena Medals, but nobody cares about those) everyone within your army will receive at the end.

You also earn Feathers for scoring highly within your own army after each battle, so don’t be afraid to use all your Refill Lances if you feel confident in your abilities, or save them for a future battle.

Heroes: New Tap Battle – Kingdom of Nohr, and Legendary Azura buffs incoming

Illusory Dungeon has been updated! The new Tap Battle: Kingdom of Nohr features, as you may guess, Heroes and music from the Kingdom of Nohr.

Rhythmically or furiously tap your way through 100 floors and three extra stages throughout the event to earn yourself rewards, including Orbs and new accessories to deck out your Heroes!

Additionally, there are daily quests as the event is running so you can earn yourself some extra Feathers and Badges.

The event begins today, and will end on the 7th of February, 6:59AM UTC.

Also confirmed earlier today: an in-game bug related to the most recent Legendary Hero – Azura: Vallite Songstress.

The bug occurs when when a player uses Legendary Azura’s movement assist skill (e.g. Sing/Gray Waves), has her weapon Prayer Wheel equipped, and has support animations set to “off” in the settings menu.

Fire Emblem Premium Arrange Album Announced

Last month, we learned that there will be a live concert during the Fire Emblem Expo event on May 2019. For those who can’t make it–or wish to preserve the music–Intelligent Systems will be releasing a CD featuring all the songs.

Today, they officially announced the details of said CD, which is titled “Fire Emblem Premium Arrange”. It will come out on 20th March, long before the expo starts, and retails for 3,200 Yen (including tax). Those in Japan can pre-order it directly from Intelligent Systems.

The CD itself includes 15 songs, of which 14 will be played at the concert, plus a bonus song exclusive to the CD: a rendition of Conquest (Ablaze), sung by Lucina’s voice actress, Yū Kobayashi. It will also have a full colour, 8-page booklet.

To ease the wait, the official expo site includes samples of all the included songs, on this page (just click the red “play” buttons). Below, you can find the track list, as well as a re-hosted playlist with all the sample tracks.
