Fire Emblem Cipher‘s seventh expansion, Rise to Honor, was finally released last week! This set features cards based on characters from Blazing Sword alongside Hoshidans from Fire Emblem Fates. Now that all of the cards are available, we can finally take a look at everything this set brings to the game.
For the first time, Cipher S7 booster boxes included special holographic marker cards as a promotional gift, each box coming with one of two cards. One features artwork of Marth, along with several of his friends, used in a promo card in the Fire Emblem Festival DVD The other is a particularly festive Camilla, originally from a Comiket89 promo card.
As teased in the Series 7 pre-release livestream (and earlier), Fire Emblem Cipher is heading to Comiket 91, its third appearance at Comiket to date.
No doubt all the serious Fire Emblem collectors are busting out their wallets as we speak, while the rest of all look for something to wipe the drool.
For those not in the know, Comiket (short for Comic Market) is the biggest fan event in Japan, where companies often like to attend to sell rare and exclusive merchandise.
Comiket 91 runs from 29th to 31st December 2016 at the Tokyo Big Sight. The Fire Emblem Cipher area will be located in booth 3142, 4th floor, west corporate area.
The official Cipher website has a list of all the goodies, which we’ll provide information in English below. Read more
Yesterday, December 3rd, the Fire Emblem Cipher team held a livestream event on NicoNico to show off some upcoming Series 7 cards and share some other exciting set, event, and merchandise news for the coming months.
As usual, Ryota Kawade and Young were our hosts, and they were joined by Eri Suzuki, Soleil’s VA. The spirit of the livestream was very festive! They started off by opening a box to showcase some of the promotion items included, such as promo sleeves, holo marker cards, and preview promos showing Seliph and Chrom from the upcoming S8 set.
As we ramp up towards the Fire Emblem Cipher Series 7 release next week, the FECipher Twitter account has been very active, posting three of the four remaining Super Rare cards this week alone! The most recent was just showcased today: Eliwood from Blazing Sword, wielding Durandal.
Other reveals include a Ninian SR and Ursula R, both also from Blazing Sword, as well as some new cards for Fire Emblem Fates: Basara Oboro as our 3rd SR and Jakob R. Both Oboro and Ninian were expected to get SRs this set, the former for her popularity and the latter for her plot importance, but there’s still one unknown S7 SR remaining.
