Cipher Series 9 Pre-Release Livestream!

This past Saturday, Ryota Kawade and Young hosted a pre-release livestream for Fire Emblem Cipher! Series 9 comes out in just a few days, so it was a perfect opportunity to show off new cards and give fans some tidbits of information about upcoming sets.

The release of S9 coincides with the 2nd Anniversary of Cipher, so everyone was ready to celebrate. The room was decorated, Kawade was dressed up as Eldigan, and they even shared a special cake!

The main focus of the stream was, of course, the upcoming Series 9 which releases on 22 June. The booster series, entitled Roaring Echoes, features cards and characters from Fire Emblem Echoes, Binding Blade, Hasha no Tsurugi, Path of Radiance, and Radiant Dawn. The ST Deck Lands of the Gods focuses solely on characters from Echoes.

WARNING: Some of the card images revealed in this article contain character and story spoilers for Fire Emblem Echoes. Please use caution if you have not yet finished the game and are looking to avoid spoilers.

Warriors: A Sneak Peak at the Dragonstone Crystal

After Fire Emblem Warriors appeared at E3, Nintendo and Koei Tecmo announced a couple of special editions for Japan–one of which, the “Treasure Box”, includes a replica dragonstone crystal.

Today, the official Japanese Twitter account was kind enough to show an in-production image of the dragonstone itself. Presumably, colour has yet to be added; even still it looks very impressive.

Not shown is the display stand for the crystal, which can playback voices of various heroes. Assuming the stand is indeed an alarm clock, it would be pretty amazing to have likes of Marth and Tiki wake you up in the morning.

Sounds from FE0 Go Go! Summer Tour – 1,300 Yen

After the success of the previous CD, the Cavalier Duo are back with another! This time, the CD, which roughly (and I mean very roughly) translates to “Olden Times; East and West” contains 4 tracks. Hence the relatively cheaper price. Read more

Warriors: Special Editions Announced for Japan

Yesterday at E3, Fire Emblem Warriors gifted us with a new game trailer, gameplay demonstration and new amiibo. Today, we have some preliminary details about the special editions releasing in Japan, alongside the game, on 28th September 2017.

First, we have the “standard” limited edition, dubbed the “Premium Box“. This includes the game itself (Switch or new 3DS/2DS version), a 3-disk soundtrack CD, 80-page visual artbook and a set of character postcards.

The Switch edition costs 10,800 Yen plus tax, while the new Nintendo 3DS/2DS edition is slightly cheaper, at 9,800 Yen plus tax. Which at the current exchange rates–and including tax–comes to about 106 USD and 97 USD respectively.

Meanwhile there’s the “Treasure Box” for those with a more flexible budget; it includes everything contained in the Premium Box plus an amazing-sounding Dragonstone crystal (with voice sound effects).

Judging from the silhouette and the mention of sound effects, it could be an alarm clock of some sort. Anyway, the Switch edition costs 15,800 Yen plus tax (156 USD), while the new 3DS/2DS edition costs 14,800 Yen plus tax (146 USD).

The key thing to know is that the Treasure Box will be sold exclusively from the MyNintendo Store, Amazon Japan and GAMECITY (Koei Tecmo’s store). This of course doesn’t include retailers acting as proxies, etc.

At the time of writing, it’s unknown if these special editions will turn up in the West, but we’re confident Nintendo and Koei Tecmo aren’t going to disappoint the legions of fans.
