On 25th May, the Fire Emblem Cipher team held their Spring 2019 livestream–the second seasonal one of the year. The hosts were Ryota Kawade, Young, and Eri Suzuki.

The main agenda was to discuss the upcoming Series 17: “The Advance of All Heroes”. This series breaks the usual trends of featuring a small number of factions by including not just every faction but every single game title.
Above is the official list of featured games. I won’t bother naming them all, but it’s all the mainline games from the first up to Echoes and including Heroes and Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE. Unless I missed it, Warriors is not advertised, despite having cards in the past.
Besides that, the original Cipher mascots will make an appearance in Series 17 too. Above are Emma and Shade, the first pair of mascots, in the Falcon Knight and Dark Sage classes respectively.
Also, although Three Houses isn’t a featured title (because it’s a bit too new by the time the Series 17 releases), there will be cards for it, in the form of booster box “preview” promos. It seems everyone will get 2 of the 4 cards per box.
I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend! As for me, I somehow ended up at a motorcycle festival, but that’s a story for another time and place. Anyway, I’m here to report the upcoming schedule for the rotating characters and songs on the Japanese Fire Emblem World website.
Last month, we covered the schedule from 22nd April to 26th May. From here, every single game that’s been released (that’s been developed by Intelligent Systems) has been featured at least once–some twice. My aim is to keep going until I’m bored
or enough people shout at me.
27th May – 2nd June: Binding Blade
: Dark Priestess
Next week starts off with the second appearance of Binding Blade. The characters include the Araphen orphanage trio, a trio of promoted units (two from the Western Isles) and… Merlinus. It’s kinda like they were going for a pattern, but decided to sod it at the last minute.
It’s time for another slightly obscure Sunday update! As usual, we’ll be looking at the upcoming schedule for the rotating characters and songs on the Japanese Fire Emblem World website.
For those not in the know, the website–which serves as a Fire Emblem hub–was overhauled near the end of 2018. The new version features a different character on the front page every day, plus a different song every week.
Last month, we covered the schedule from 25th February to 17th March 2019. Which means it’s almost out of date. But have no fear, because we can

18th – 24th March: Fates
: A Dark Fall (Fire)
A fairly predictable line up: male Corrin with Azura, his older brothers and sisters, plus Felicia. Presumably we’ll get female Corrin and her younger siblings and Jakob later. By the way, Camilla’s file name is typo’d. Read more
