Cipher S11 Weekly Recap: Daily Reveals, Ad Posters, Promo Text-Free Art & Livestream Announcement!

It’s another exciting week of news for Fire Emblem Cipher fans! @fecipher has been busy with another series of reveals, including two beautiful SR+ cards for Rowan and Lianna! The twin lords of Fire Emblem Warriors each have a signed card featuring their voice actors, Yuuma and Maaya Uchida. Did you know their voice actors are also siblings?

Joshua from The Sacred Stones also receives an SR this week. Standing alongside him is Natasha, who gets an N and HN combo.

The final official reveals of the week go to Fire Emblem Echoes. Valbar, Kamui, and Leon all had promoted cards revealed this week, an R for Valbar and HNs for Kamui and Leon.

That’s not all the new cards we get to see this week, though. New posters advertising S11 have begun to spring up around Japan. These posters contain a combination of new and previously-released cards in the series.

Cipher Autumn 2018 Livesteam: New S11 Cards, S12 Artwork, & S13 Announcement!

This past weekend, the Fire Emblem Cipher team hosted the Cipher Autumn 2018 Livesteam over NicoNico! Ryota Kawade and Young hosted the stream as usual. Joining them was voice actress Juri Kimura, the voice of both Mozu and Nyx from Fire Emblem Fates and Yuzu from Fire Emblem Echoes.

The main focus of the stream was to show off some additional cards for the latest upcoming series: S11, Glorious Twinstrike. The set features cards from The Sacred Stones, Fire Emblem Echoes, and Fire Emblem Warriors, and releases on 7 December.

In addition to showing off cards, we also got to see some new Fire Emblem merchandise, as also news and images for upcoming Cipher releases and events. Read on below for a full look at everything new from the stream!

Warriors: Upcoming Free DLC/Update for Japan

Update: The free DLC is coming to Europe, North America, etc. on the same day.

The Japanese Fire Emblem Warriors website has updated with news about a version 1.2.0 update arriving on 16th November 2017, as well as a free English voice pack (just like we got a free Japanese voice pack).

Whereas 1.1.0 merely added the ability to buy DLC and a few quality of life improvements, the new update will include new battles, costumes and gameplay features.

To begin with, there will be new costumes for Rowan and Lianna, pictured above, dubbed “Gold Prince” and “Gold Princess” respectively.

Next, a new and rather intriguing weapon attribute has been introduced, which we’ll tentatively call “Crushing Blow”. If equipped, attacks will trigger “Armour Break”, which removes the foe’s armour, revealing their… well, underwear.

So just like Sophie’s skill or the Raider weapons in Fates. Except Armour Break lowers the Defence and Resistance stat, so it actually has gameplay merit. The catch is that if you’re hit by a foe’s Strong attack, your character will get inflicted by Armour Break.

If that’s not enough, a new History Map “Heroic Arena” will be available to play. According to the description, it will focus on Rowan and Lianna as they battle against other heroes in the arena. Perhaps you’ll get their new costumes by completing it?

Finally, there will be some extra gameplay enhancements including the ability to sell multiple weapons at once(!), new blessings in the Temple and various bug fixes, etc.

Cipher S11 Weekly Recap: First Daily Reveals!

With Series 11 of Fire Emblem Cipher releasing in a month, daily reveals from @fecipher have started this past week! They began with some introductory cards for each portion of the set. We’ve previously seen the art for Eirika and Ephraim from The Sacred Stones and Rowan and Lianna from Fire Emblem Warriors, but now we get to see the cards in full.

We also get a lovely panorama of joined-art cards featuring Celica, Alm, and Valbar from Fire Emblem Echoes. The artwork for the card is based on the original Gaiden box art.

After the introductory cards, we got a few more foil cards from the set, including two Overclasses from Echoes. Harrier Faye will be released as an R card while Enchantress Delthea gets both an SR and an alternate art SR+! Presumably we’ll see a few more Overclasses in further cards in the set.

Finally, we also get to see the SR promoted cards for Eirika and Ephraim. They share with a beautiful joined art drawn by Sachiko Wada, the original FE8 artist. These cards also introduce the new “Twin Skills” mechanic that reflects their strong bond with each other.

Many more S11 cards were revealed during the Autumn Livesteam which aired this weekend. I’ll be posting a full breakdown of the livestream, including all the new cards and some exciting Cipher news, later this week.

Cipher Series 11 will release next month on 7 December! In the meantime, it’ll be an exciting month of news, reveals, and speculation.
