With the S15 release date less than a week away, today is the Final Cipher S15 Weekly Recap! @fecipher has revealed a lot of special cards this week gearing up towards release. The most recent came out today: a special joined-art card for Katarina from New Mystery! The left card is her regular SR while the right is an alternate art SR+ variant.
Jakob from Fates and Reinhardt from Thracia 776 also joined the SR crew this week. You can see both of their SR cards below, along with their unpromoted versions. This is Reinhardt’s Cipher debut, but his Heroes popularity made him a strong SR candidate. Jakob has had other cards in the past, but this is his first dual-colour card.
The final reveals of this week are both R+ variant cards. First up Elise, shown here along with her Cost 1. Like Ryoma and Sakura in S14, Elise gets an alternate art R+ variant with some fancy foil work. The final card is a signed R+ card for Elice, Marth’s sister. Kawade first revealed this card with the text blocked out during a previous livestream. The signature on the card is Sumi Shimamoto, Elice’s VA from the original Fire Emblem OAV.
Although S15 still has some surprises, we’ll get to see at least a few of them soon! Tomorrow at 8pm JST, the Cipher S15 Pre-Release Livestream will begin! Kawade and Young will be joined by a wide variety of guests, including two VAs (Eri Suzuki and Kazuo Natsuka) and three artists (Yuko Oguma, Tetsu Kurosawa, and Yamada Kotaro).
Like most pre-release streams, this one will focus on showing off some remaining cards in S15. We’ll also likely get some news and art for upcoming sets, as well as an in-person look at some of the Comiket goods. The stream will also reveal some more information on the upcoming Fire Emblem Expo, so that’s extra exciting!
If you’d like to watch along live, the stream will be available both via NicoNico and YouTube live. As usual, we’ll post an article after the stream to share all interesting information afterward.
That’s all we have for now! Cipher Series 15 will release next next on 13 December. 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.
