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, the Japanese official website for Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia updated with new information about the tentative Series 2 and 3 DLC.
As it happens, Series 2–dubbed “Heroes’ Challenge”–is available to purchase now. Whereas Series 1 was geared towards early-game, the maps in this series will benefit those who’ve reached mid-game or beyond.
Additionally, all players can download the 3rd piece of free DLC–“Goddess’s Gift 3”, which grants a rare Taurus shard and 5 shiny Golden Marks.
Series 3 will arrive a bit later, starting from 24th May 2017. This series is divided into the “Sealed Altar”, which contains 10 new ultimate classes, and the “Prelude of the Deliverance”, four story maps that occur before Alm’s journey starts.
Everything we currently know can be found in our DLC section. Or if you’d like, keep reading for the full lowdown!
Ahead of its release in just over a month’s time (in Japan), Nintendo has upgraded the Japanese website for Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia with lots of new information.
Some of this information is also covered in this week’s Famitsu, which we’re still waiting to officially come out. Although oddly the website hasn’t bothered explaining the Mila’s Gear feature at all.
The first section of the website discusses what Echoes is all about–which we all know already. More importantly, it has a couple of interesting comparison screenshots between the original Gaiden and its remake Echoes.
Yep! DLC has hit the stage, and in more ways than one.
Japan’s next wave of DLC, Halloween Scramble, has been released. Much like the earlier Summer Scramble beach party DLC, this one features some spiffy themed official character artwork.
Here you can see Xander’s official CG in costume. Also, you can find one for Camilla, Leo, Oboro, Setsuna and Tsubaki.
In addition, a few dozen unique support conversations exists between your units. A full list of units that have special supports with each other can be found here. Translations are coming in fast, and can be found in our Halloween DLC Scramble thread.
Nohrian Festival of Bonds is available for 250 Yen to users with a Japanese 3DS and game(s).
