Cipher: “Emma and Shade’s Cipher Classroom” Fan-translated!

Thanks to bookofholsety, who’s also known for the “Project Naga” re-translations of the Jugdral games, we’ve got something really neat for budding Cipher fans.

I’m sure a fair number of you admire the ever-growing Cipher card game, but haven’t found the time or effort to actually figure out how to play it (like me).

As it happens, Intelligent Systems created a cute and handy tutorial app on their website, which teaches fans the basics of how to play, as demonstrated by the first ever mascots–Emma and Shade. Only problem is that the app is Japanese-only just like the card game.

However, that’s no longer an issue, since the app has now been translated into English! Please click here to check it out. We’ve tested the translated app quite thoroughly, but if you encounter any technical issues, please let us know in the comments.

Now the app itself only covers the basics; if you’re interested to learn more, feel free to check out our wiki.

Fire Emblem Cipher Festival 2019: Merchandise + Thracia Art Exhibition

Back in April, the Fire Emblem Cipher team shared most of the details for the upcoming Fire Emblem Cipher Festival 2019 events, to be held in Japan during June. Recently, they updated their webpage with a few more details.

Firstly, the merchandise listing has been expanded, beyond the single picture and simple list from before. There are now better pictures of all the products, plus a proper look at the crazy expensive A3 acrylic card. You can find the information in English further down this article.

Additionally, by popular demand, the Thracia 776 art exhibition that featured at Fire Emblem Expo earlier this month will be making a comeback at the Cipher Festival events. The exhibition showcased all the known official artworks plus some artwork from the ending sequence.

Cipher News Updates: S16 Promos, S17 Sleeves & Art + Spring Livestream Details!

Fire Emblem Cipher news has been a bit slow since the release of Series 16. However, we have gotten a few tidbits of information over the past couple weeks, including a full look at some new S16 Promos!

First up is Lucina, whose art was revealed earlier. This special promo was given to attendees of the recent FE Expo in Japan. The art is by Mayo and is a special callback to her earlier Marth artwork for the Anniversary Concert promo card.

The second card is a special card for Deirdre drawn by Rika Suzuki. Two copies of this promo will be included in Suzuki’s upcoming artbook. Furthermore, @FEcipher has confirmed that this is an alternate art reprint of a new Deirdre card from S17.

Speaking of S17, we do have some news from the upcoming set as well, including a look at the set’s sleeves! The four sleeve designs for this set are for: Marth, Ayra, Lucina, and Female Corrin.

Marth’s and Ayra’s sleeves use their new S17 art, while Lucina and Corrin use their special summer art from last year’s Comiket promos. You can pre-order them on AmiAmi.

Furthermore, magazines in Japan give us another glimpse at S17’s artwork! Not all of these pieces are new, but some are, such as Kaden. Thanks to AuroraSkye for the photograph.

Finally, we now have a timeline for more S17 news thanks to the announcement for the Spring 2019 Cipher Livesteam! Michihiko Hagi (VA for Ike) and Eri Suzuki (VA for Soleil, Delthea, and Emma) will be joining as guests. The stream will air on 25 May live over NicoNico and YouTube. Check the official site for more details.

As such, this also implies that S17 daily reveals will be starting earlier than week on 20 May! Get ready!
