2018 is shaping up to be a great year for fans of Fire Emblem Cipher! December was a very busy month for Cipher, with the release of S11 and also Cipher’s third appearance at Comiket. Now with the beginning of the new year, we can turn our gaze forward to the card game’s next upcoming sets and events…
Cipher Series 12 will be the first set of the year, releasing on March 22nd. Titled “Raging Deluge“, it contains cards and characters of three different colours from three different worlds: Jugdral (Genealogy of the Holy War), Tellius (Path of Radiance/Radiant Dawn), and Ylisse (Awakening).
S12 is the most mysterious set to date, as we’ve seen no preview cards and very little information in general. Read on below for a look at what we know about the set so far!
On Thursday, 7 December, Fire Emblem Cipher released its 11th booster series! The title of Cipher Series 11, Glorious Twinstrike, references the pairs of protagonists for each of the three titles included: The Sacred Stones, Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, and Fire Emblem Warriors.
WARNING: Some of the cards in this set contain story or character spoilers for all three games. If you’re looking to avoid any spoilers, proceed with caution!
As is now tradition, Fire Emblem Cipher will be heading to Comiket 93, which is perhaps the largest fan event in Japan, bringing along its usual array of exclusive (and mouthwatering) merchandise.
Like previous years, Comiket 93 will be held at the Tokyo Big Sight, between 29th and 31st December 2017. The Fire Emblem Cipher area will be located in booth 3181, 4th floor, west corporate area.
The official Cipher website has all the details, which we’ll relay below!
Of course, for most fans, the biggest highlight is the merchandise–and there’s certainly a solid selection this year.
This past Sunday, the Fire Emblem Cipher team held the Series 11 Pre-Release Livestream for the upcoming S11! As usual, Ryota Kawade and Young led the show, this time with a rather festive air. Minami Takahashi, the voice actress for Peri from Fates, was also present as a guest host throughout the show.
The main focus of the livestream was to show off cards for S11 which releases tomorrow, 7 December! The set focuses on characters from The Sacred Stones, Fire Emblem Echoes, and Fire Emblem Warriors.
In addition to showing off cards, we also got a sneak peak at some of the merchandise that will be available at Comiket 93 this year, along with some more art for the next set, S12, which will release in March. We were also joined by a number of guests throughout the show, including both new and familiar faces.
