This past Saturday, the Fire Emblem Cipher team held the Series 12 Pre-Release Livestream live over NicoNico! Voice actresses Hibiku Yamamura (Rinea and Shade) and Minami Takahashi (Peri and Alice) joined Ryota Kawade and Young as hosts.
Like most pre-release streams, the main draw was opening up packs to show off new cards for S12, which focuses on Path of Radiance/Radiant Dawn, Genealogy of the Holy War, and Awakening. Kawade also revealed some additional artwork for the summer set, S13. Read on below for a full breakdown!
We briefly mentioned this at the end of our previous article: on 30th March 2018, an artbook for Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia will be releasing in Japan.
Its full title is “Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia Memorial Book Valentia Accordion”. If the naming convention didn’t clue you in, it’s from the same people behind the Tellius Recollection books and is advertised as the 3rd memorial book in the series.
The reason we’re bringing this up again is that the cover for the book has just been revealed on Amazon Japan. Otherwise, that’s still all we know about the book, other than the fact it’s priced at 3,780 Yen and has 256 pages like the other memorial books.
Anyway, the text on the cover is all familiar stuff. The blurb in the corner states that Intelligent Systems has supervised the contents and that we should expect previously unreleased information, as well a look at the past and future of the Valentian continent.
We’re now another week closer to the release of Series 12 in Fire Emblem Cipher! @fecipher has had a busy week sharing lots of reveals and other pieces of information for the upcoming set. Two new characters revealed this week are Ashnard and Rajaion from Path of Radiance! Ashnard has an N and R card, and Rajaion an HN.
The Tellius reveals continue with an N and SR card for Mist as well! We saw Mist’s N briefly during the Winter Livestream, but now we get a proper digital look at it. The SR is completely new and is the 4th SR for Tellius that we know so far in this set. Mist’s SR goes well in tandem with Berserk Ike, protecting your allies from his murderous rampage.
Speaking of SRs, Nowi snags her first SR this set, with some beautiful artwork by kawasumi! Nowi is the second SR representing Awakening that we’ve seen so far this set.
The remaining reveals of the week go to Genealogy of the Holy War. Both Beowolf and Oifey get two cards in the yellow portion of the set, one N and one HN each. Oifey’s card represent his appearances in both generations of the game.
Additionally, the official FE Cipher website updated today! The updates give us a look at some of the goodies that will be included in booster boxes of the set.
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!
