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.
Fire Emblem Heroes director Shingo Matsushita made a special guest appearance on today’s Fire Emblem Cipher livestream. Alongside Cipher news, which will be covered in depth in a later post, Matsushita made a surprise announcement…
Seliph and Julia from Genealogy of the Holy War and Eirika and Ephraim from The Sacred Stones will be coming to Heroes! Although no firm details were given, we were greeted with these two shots of the characters’ in-game artwork.
@FE_Heroes_JP later confirmed the announcement, stating that the characters would be coming in a few days. Since the two current Summoning Focus character groups will expire on February 15th, these four may be part of a new Focus group introduced at that time.
In less than two months, Fire Emblem Fates will be finally arriving in Europe.
If you still need to catch up with the series, you’ve come at the perfect time as Nintendo of Europe is holding a massive Fire Emblem sale on the eShop from 31st March to 14th April 2016.
Not only are the games discounted, but for the first time since release, all of Fire Emblem Awakening‘s downloadable content has been reduced in price as well. Perfect if you haven’t dipped in or if you’re missing some bits or pieces.
With all the general craziness surrounding Fates as of late, it’s very easy for some news to get lost along the way.
Diligent fans such as Bunny, have reminded me that The Sacred Stones was added to the North American Wii U Virtual Console on 18th June. For those of you in Europe, it came out at the start of this year (and it’s a Club Nintendo digital reward too).
This title is notable for being Intelligent System’s first proper attempt at telling two parallel stories in the same game, long before Fates. Although, in reality, the story only branched out for 7 chapters before converging again.
