This summer, things are heating up for Fire Emblem fans in Japan, as Intelligent Systems are holding a “Fire Emblem Cipher Summer Party” event at four different locations in Japan during late July/early August.
First announced during the Series 13 pre-release livestream, Summer Party celebrates 3 years of the Fire Emblem Cipher card game. The event itself is similar to other Cipher local events in the past, such as the annual Cipher Festivals.
Although the events are focused on the Cipher card game, there’s free entry for everyone and there’s lots to do even if you’re a stranger to Cipher. Below, you can find details of all the venues, as well as the activities on offer.
Everyone who attends Summer Party can receive a pair of special promotional cards, featuring Fjorm and Laevateinn from Heroes, when leaving the event. Note that the cards will only be given out after the closing stage.
Today, 28 June, is the official release day for Fire Emblem Cipher Series 13! The set titled Flame, Steel, Thought and Grief is now available in card shops around Japan.
S13 features cards and characters from Blazing Sword, Shadow Dragon, and Heroes. It also contains a new Structured Deck featuring more FE7 characters. Scroll on below for a look at the available cards and related promos!
This past Saturday, the Fire Emblem Cipher team held the Series 13 Pre-Release Livestream live over NicoNico! Ryota Kawade (Cipher Producer), Young, and Yuuki Kuwahara (VA for Ophelia and Nieve) hosted the presentation. Later on, Makiko Ohmoto (VA for Lyn) and Tsutomu Kitanishi also arrived as guests.
The main focus of the stream was to open packs and show off cards from the upcoming S13, Flame, Steel, Thought and Grief. It releases this Thursday, 28 June, and features characters from Blazing Sword, Shadow Dragon, and Heroes.
We also got to see some art from the upcoming S14, anniversary art by many Cipher artists, merchandise for the Cipher Summer Party event, and sneak peaks at upcoming set and gameplay information. Read on below to take a look at everything!
We’re less than a week away from the S13 release of Fire Emblem Cipher! @fecipher has been very busy sharing a multitude of cards this week. The highlight of this week’s reveals arrived today, two gorgeous joined-art SR+ cards of Marth and Caeda from Shadow Dragon!
Two more SR cards were also revealed this week, Hector from Blazing Sword and Sharena from Heroes! Sharena‘s card features some other female FE protagonists in the background, while Hector’s card joins Lyn and Eliwood to form a long joined-art panorama. @fecipher also showed off a text-free version of the art over Twitter.
The final reveals for the week go to Norne and Kiran. Norne gets both an R and an alternate art R+ card. Like Sharena, Kiran’s card also contains some other Heroes characters. The included characters are a reference to the original opening move for the game.
This week also brought us a few new Heroes-based promo cards! Both Sharena and Fjorm get special promos in the latest issues of Nintendo Dream and Dengeki Nintendo respectively. Each issue comes with two copies of its respective promo.
