Echoes: Drama CD “Foreign Skies; Daybreak Forest” Announced

A year after the game’s release, a new drama CD for Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, dubbed “Foreign Skies; Daybreak Forest”, will be released in Japan on 17th August 2018.

Fire Emblem isn’t new when it comes to drama CDs, with Awakening and Fates receiving a bunch of them. For those unsure, drama CDs are basically audio CDs and they usually feature side stories.

Here’s the translated description from the drama CD’s official site.

Valentia Year 401

Chancellor Desaix has been defeated and Zofia Castle has been reclaimed.

The Deliverance led by Alm crushed General Berkut at Rigel’s borders and has started to advance into the Rigelian Empire.

As the march into enemy territory is progressing smoothly, trouble breaks out within the Kingdom of Zofia.

Clive, a key member of the Deliverance, sorties a part of the Deliverance to resolve the situation.

During the march, Alm discovers a village that has been converted into an imperial base, and prompted by Lukas, must make a terrible decision whether to burn down the village—

As soon as Alm entered the empire, somebody was waiting for him to step foot in Rigel Forest…

Authored by the development staff, an original story encompassing a whopping 90 minutes! Alm’s inner conflict, Lukas’s anger, Forsyth’s anguish, Python’s chivalry, and Faye and Silque’s girl talk!? This is an original drama CD that occurs during Act 4, when the Deliverance spend several days in Rigel Forest.

The bonus track “The Voice Calling for You” is a vocal track included for the first time! This previously unheard song that tells another ending will soon come to light…!

Cipher Series 13 Booster Pack, ST Deck, and Sleeve Images!

We still have some time before we’ll start getting card reveals for Series 13 of Fire Emblem Cipher. However, news and images have still been slowly trickling in. Just today, @fecipher revealed images for both the Series 13 Booster Pack and also the associated Structured Deck!

The booster pack features art for Sharena, Marth, and Eliwood. Likely, these three characters will function as the main lords for their respective set sections.

The ST Deck image is a bit more new and interesting. Lyn is the leading character for the deck, as a counterpart to Eliwood starring in the set. Her ST+ card also contains a signature, a first for an ST Deck! The signature is by Lyn’s Japanese voice actress, Makiko Omoto. The twitter revealed a text-free Lyn’s ST art recently as well.

On the ST packaging around the edges, we can also see some more card art for other characters. Starting on the bottom left and going clockwise, the characters appear to be Serra, Matthew, Hector, Eliwood, Florina, Erk, and Marcus.

The Matthew image matches some art of him from a recent magazine in Japan. We also got some new artwork of Lena at that time.

If that’s not enough new art for you, we also have images for the associated S13 sleeves! As usual, there will be four different sleeve designs. This time around, they feature Marth, Linde, Lyn, and Laevatein. Laetavein’s chibi-style art sleeve is brand new art and will likely be featured on a promo card.

You can pre-order all four sleeve designs, as well as the S13 deck and booster boxes, from AmiAmi.

Finally, @fecipher also revealed another guest for the upcoming Spring 2018 Livestream! Satomi Arai, the voice actress for Loki from Heroes, will be joining Ryota Kawade, Young, and Eri Suzuki. The livestream airs on 26 May, so mark your calendars!

Daily card reveals for the set will likely be starting up before the stream, so prepare for more upcoming news as well. Cipher Series 13 releases next month on 28 June.
