Fire Emblem Cipher will be returning for Comiket 95, bringing lots of swanky new merchandise to make fans happy and wallets sad.
Like last year, Comiket 95 will be held at the Tokyo Big Sight, between 29th and 31st December 2018. This time, the Cipher booth is number 3161, located in the 4th floor, west corporate area.
Following yesterday’s livestream, the official Cipher website updated with full details, which we’ll relay below!
Obviously, the main attraction is the exclusive merchandise, but this time the Cipher team is also holding special talk shows on the 2nd and 3rd days of the event.
This lovely Christmas Lilina promotional card will be given out as a free gift for each transaction at the Cipher booth. While stocks last of course. By the way, it’s a bit hard to see here, but that’s Roy sleeping in front of Lilina.
Welcome to another weekly showcase of news and cards for Fire Emblem Cipher! We’ve got a full week of reveals this time around, starting off with a three card panorama of Est, Catria, and Palla! Not only are the Whitewings all together in their promoted Dracoknight class, these special R+ variants are each signed by their Japanese VAs!
@fecipher also revealed two additional SRs so far this week. The first goes to Altena, princess of Leonster. Oddly enough, she is wielding both Gáe Bolg and Gungnir in her SR card, even though she cannot canonically wield the latter. Clarisse from New Mystery also makes her Cipher debut with a gorgeous SR by Mayo. You can see both women with both their SRs and unpromoted Cost 1 cards below.
The final reveals of the week also contain foil cards, this time Rs. Leo joins his siblings with an unpromoted Cost 1 card and a promoted R foil. Elise is the only Nohrian sibling who has not had her R card revealed yet. Seliph also appears as an R card this set. He is the final revealed R card in the yellow block of S15.
The official Cipher website has also updated with a new Cipher Frontier Column! This time around, the Cipher mascots were discussing Cipher’s booth at the upcoming Comiket 95. As usual, the Cipher booth will host a wide variety of Fire Emblem Merchandise.
We’ll post up another article with full merchandise information once we have all the details. In the meantime, scroll down to take a look at the few Comiket promo cards that have been fully revealed. We also have a few more poster cards down below as well!
In what is starting to become a routine, Intelligent Systems has announced the next wave of Fire Emblem merchandise scheduled for March 2019.
As you can probably tell from the promotional image, this merchandise is intended for Japanese audiences, but there’s nothing to stop you from importing from places like AmiAmi and CDJapan.
This time, there’s slightly less on offer: 3 types of merchandise versus 4 in previous months. We’re not sure if this is a sign that they’re slowing down or if they simply want to give collectors a short break. Chances are we’ll find out soon enough!
Masking Tape – 800 Yen (excl. tax)
The first exhibit is a set of two Binding Blade decorative tapes, featuring portraits of popular(?) characters and the overhead map. As the example shows, you can overlay the second design to create your own maps. Each tape measures 10 m when fully extended.
Here’s something that might be interesting for music fans! On 23rd January 2019, Renka–the Japanese singer for “Lost in Thoughts All Alone” (the signature song of Fates)–will be releasing her very first album.
Known as “Hoshi no habatakuyoruwa”, which loosely translates to the “The Fluttering Night of Stars”, this album includes 12 tracks since her original debut back in 2015, when she first sang the Japanese version of “Lost in Thoughts All Alone”.
Of course, that particular song is among the 12 tracks. In addition, there’s a 13th bonus track that’s a new version of “Lost in Thoughts Alone” performed together with Lynn, Azura’s Japanese voice actress.
The album itself will retail for 3,000 Yen (plus tax). There’s also a special edition going for 3,700 Yen (plus tax), which includes a “3rd anniversary live voice” DVD with 9 music tracks (“Lost in Thoughts All Alone” not among them).
