Cipher Winter 2018 Livesteam: New Cards & Artwork for Upcoming Sets!

On Saturday 17 February, the Fire Emblem Cipher team held the Cipher Winter 2018 Livesteam over NicoNico! Ryota Kawade and Young hosted as usual, this time alongside Yuuki Kuwahara (VA for Effie and Ophelia from Fates).

The spotlight of the livestream was centered on cards from the latest upcoming expansion: Series 12, Raging Deluge. S12 releases in late March and features cards from Path of Radiance/Radiant Dawn, Awakening, and Genealogy of the Holy War.

The stream isn’t just about new cards, however. We also got our first artwork for the next set, S13, an in-person look at some upcoming merchandise, and also a teaser for S14. Read down below for more details!

Fire Emblem Cipher Festival 2018 Details Announced

Fire Emblem fans in Japan can look forward to an exciting event next month: Fire Emblem Cipher Festival 2018. Like the previous two years, the event will occur at two separate “east” and “west” venues, on different days.

Since its inception, Fire Emblem Cipher Festival celebrates all things Fire Emblem, although there is of course a big focus on the Cipher card game. Fans can enter for free and enjoy a variety of activities. Below, we’ll outline the event details.

First things first, everyone who visits will receive a pair of cutesy (young) Tiki and Nowi promotional cards. These will be handed out once the event ends and each set is limited to one per person. So no leaving and re-entering to grab loads!

The latest batch of Special Heroes is now live in Fire Emblem Heroes! Dive into the Love Abounds Summoning Focus to nab yourself new, special 5★ versions of Roy, Lilina, Hector, and Lyn. Check out our earlier article for a trailer with a breakdown of their skills and abilities.

Like most Special Hero banners, this one is accompanied by a new Paralogue, also titled “Love Abounds“. Complete the new maps and their associated quests to earn yourself 12 Orbs. You can also get up to 13 Orbs for logging in with the newest Log-In Bonus. Hopefully these extra Orbs will help you summon the hero your heart desires most!

The Love Abounds Summoning Focus and its paralogue quests will be available for one month, ending on 9 March.

The latest Heroes special event also starts today: Tap Battle: Illusory Dungeon! Check out our Feh Channel article for an introduction, or just dive right in. You can access the Tap Battle in the new Events menu in the Battle screen. Check it out each day to complete new quests and play new floors. The event will run through 23 February.

Once you’re done with all that, there are even more new treats awaiting Heroes players! Two types of “Persistant Training Maps” open today: Special Training Maps and Daily Grand Hero Battle Revivals. The GHB Revivals also come with a new set of GHB Elite Quests. Check out further details in the Feh Channel article or in the Notifications Screen.

If that’s not keeping you busy enough, there are also new Weapon Refinery Quests beginning today as well. They’ll be around for the next couple months, ending on 29 March.

Additionally, Heroes has released a new Event Calendar! This calendar starts off where the previous one left off, giving us a hint of what’s to come for the rest of February and into March.

As usual, the dates on this calendar are based on the daily reset happening in Pacific Standard Time at 11pm. For everyone else, the dates given on this calendar are one day too early. Check out a text breakdown of the calendar below, with adjusted dates.

Finally, some new Heroes merchandise has been revealed! These two Mini Acrylic Figure Collections contain 20 different small figures made from the Heroes battle sprites. The two “secret” figures appear to be Feh and Reinhardt.

These figure collections will release later this month in Japan. Each box contains 10 figures and has an MSRP of ¥3,500. They are not yet available for pre-order, but likely will be soon from sites like AmiAmi and CDJapan.

Cipher: S12 Sleeve Designs & Ad Image + Winter Livestream Info!

We’re still in a slow period for Fire Emblem Cipher, but some tidbits of information have recently come to light. First and foremost is the official unveiling of the Cipher S12 sleeve designs which feature art from the upcoming set.

The four designs are: Micaiah and the Lehran’s Medallion art from Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn, Nowi from Awakening, and pixel art of various FE Cipher Lords. Sadly for Genealogy fans, Jugdrali art won’t be getting sleeves this time around. You can pre-order all four sleeve packs from AmiAmi or CDJapan.

Additionally, an S12 advertisement released in Japan gives us our first glimpse at S12 card mock ups. We get four green cards for Possessed Ike, Astrid, Fiona, and Stefan; two blue cards for Nowi and Chrom; and two yellow cards for Sigurd and Ares.

All of these cards feature artwork that’s already been revealed, but there is no text yet. Also, it’s important to keep in mind that these mock ups do not necessarily reflect the final cards. For example, even though Ike has a N/HN border in this card, it’s more likely that the final product will be an R or an SR.

Finally, @fecipher has shared some details for the upcoming Winter Livestream! Ryota Kawade and Young will be joined by Yuuki Kuwahara, the voice actress for Effie and Ophelia in Fates. A teaser image released alongside the stream announcement also hints at the appearance of another Cipher original character!

The livestream will take place on 17 February. Based on previous schedules, this means we will likely start getting daily S12 card reveals on Monday the 12th, or perhaps even as soon as the 5th! Regardless, it will be nice to finally start seeing some cards from the set.

For now, that’s all the news we have, but hopefully more will be coming shortly!
