As autumn approaches, so does the next series of Fire Emblem Cipher! For fans of the card game, it’s time to turn our attention to Series 11, which releases on 7 December.
Titled Glorious Twinstrike, this set finally introduces the last missing Fire Emblem world to Cipher: Magvel from The Sacred Stones. We also get some cards featuring characters from the recently-released Fire Emblem Warriors, as well as a return to Valentia with cards from Fire Emblem Echoes.
S11 was first announced a few months ago, and since then, we’ve gotten a fair amount of news and artwork for the set. Read on below for a look at everything we know so far, including some links to pre-order cards and sleeves for the set, and also information about the upcoming Autumn Livestream and when we can expect to see our first card reveals.
This past Saturday, the Fire Emblem Cipher team held another successful livestream over NicoNico! Ryota Kawade (Cipher Producer) and Young (Intelligent Systems) were joined once again by Eri Suzuki (voice of Soleil, Delthea, and Emma) to start off the show.
The main focus of the stream was to show off cards from Series 10, Crossroads, which releases this week on 21 September. The set contains cards from Thracia 776, Fates, and Fire Emblem Heroes. We also got to have some fun with a few other guests, and get a few more tidbits of news and art for upcoming Cipher sets and events.
Another week has brought us another five days worth of daily Fire Emblem Cipher reveals from @FEcipher! This week’s reveals feature many R+ cards, such as this lovely joined-art of Shigure and Azura from Fates. These cards have different art than their regular Rs, which we haven’t yet seen.
Additional R+ reveals include an alternate art for Mareeta from Thracia 776, which you can see her along with her regular art R. The final R+ is a signed card for Bruno from Fire Emblem Heroes, shown here along with his Cost 1 N card.
Aside from R+ cards, our second Thracia SR this set makes an appearance, Finn! The final reveal of the week is an HN card for Soleil from Fates.
On 19 August, the Fire Emblem Cipher team hosted another successful livestream via NicoNico! Ryota Kawade and Young were our hosts as usual. Hibiku Yamamura, the voice actress for Rinea and Shade from Fire Emblem Echoes, also joined in as a special guest.
The stream opened up with some discussion about the upcoming release of Series 10, Crossroads, which features characters from Thracia 776, Fates, and Fire Emblem Heroes. The set will release on 21st September and the Cipher team started sharing daily card reveals just earlier this week.
Retailers in Japan will be giving out promotional Cipher gifts as part of a release campaign for S10. The items this time around are sticker sheets featuring various Cipher art! They come in two sets of three sheets which you can see here.
The stickers include artwork from throughout the whole lifespan of the game, as far back as S1’s Chrom and Marth, up to and including art from S10. If you look closely, you can even spot currently-unrevealed artwork for Finn and Anna!
Based on previous release promos, AmiAmi will likely be included in the list of approved vendors. Good news for us international Cipher fans!
