Cipher S14 Weekly Recap: Daily Reveals + Upcoming Pre-release Livestream

This week, Fire Emblem Cipher re-continued a steady stream of Series 14 card reveals, following the Hokkaido Earthquake a week ago.

Tellius had the honour of receiving the first and final reveals this week. On Monday, Shinon, the blunt but able Sniper of the Greil Mercenaries showed up with a N/HN and R card.

Later on Friday, we got two SR cards (a regular and + version) for Ilyana, the mage with an unquenchable appetite. The snazzy artwork by Mayo depicts Ilyana in her Archsage costume.

Awakening got some love this week as well. On Tuesday, Cynthia made her triumphant return since Series 4, sporting presumably H and HN cards, as well as her first SR card.

Cipher S14 Weekly Recap: Daily Reveals, Promo Art, & Site Update!

This week has brought fewer daily reveals than usual for Fire Emblem Cipher‘s S14. Likely this is a result of the recent earthquake in Hokkaido, which also delayed this week’s Nintendo Direct. Nonetheless, we do have a few reveals from earlier this week, including this triple card reveal for Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE.

The left card features Itsuki, the main character of TMS#FE. The middle and right cards are for the mirage version of Chrom. Even the aesthetics of the cards are reminiscent of the game’s unique style, especially the text quotes.

@fecipher also revealed a pair of cards each for both of the other focused titles. For Fates, Hinata and Oboro both appear in a gorgeous joined-art. Gatrie also arrives to represent Tellius, getting his first R foil card.

Additionally, TCG shop Grand Panda Canyon (@Akibagrapan) recently revealed some promotional text-free art for S14! The art features the main lords of each portion of the set: Ike, Lucina, and Male Corrin.

Cipher S14 Weekly Recap: Daily Reveals, TCG Fest, Posters, & Pre-Release Guest!

It’s been another exciting week of news and reveals for Series 14 of Fire Emblem Cipher! @fecipher revealed three special R+ cards for Awakening this week. Cordelia and Severa get a super cute joined alternate art joined-art. We also the first cards for Owain, who is shown both as his regular R and alternate art R+.

Owain’s R+ really captures his spirit, especially with his gold text quote:

…I leap into the center of the enemy formation, blade drawn, and spin! I’m no longer a man, but a whirling dervish of death and steel! My showdown with the evil general begins! My sword flashes out, a flickering blur of cold blue steel. Ka-thwack! Schwing! ‘Ha ha ha! I’m impressed, General. No one has blocked that before.’ The general wobbles on unsteady feet and then drops to his knees in shame. ‘Mercy, Owain Dark! Have mercy on me! For I cannot abide another mighty blow!’

Tellius continues the joined-art trend with this three-card panorama for Boyd, Rolf, and Oscar. The artist behind these cards is Mayo, the same artist who drew their first panorama all the way back in S3!

Finally, rounding out the week’s reveals are a few cards for Fates. First up this week was an N and R combo for the Hoshidan Princess Hinoka. The final reveal of the week, however, is an SR card for Leo. This ominous card depicts a future Leo in a post-Birthright world.

Additionally, Cipher will be making an appearance at this year’s TCG Fes! The event is this weekend at the Makuhari Messe convention center in Chiba, near Tokyo. There will be stage events, a beginner’s tournament, and some Cipher artbooks will also be available for sale.
