Fire Emblem Heroes

Yesterday, Nintendo teased new content planned for Fire Emblem Heroes. Silhouettes of characters were shown with bunny ears.

In a new trailer, it’s revealed that Chrom, Lucina, Xander, and Camilla are getting special bunny outfits on Thursday. Paralogue maps and special quests are planned as well. All of the content goes live at 12 AM PT / 3 AM ET.

The Japanese Fire Emblem Heroes Twitter account is currently holding a quiz competition. Each day, they pose a question about Fire Emblem with four possible answers, and if most people choose the correct answer, rewards will be delivered to all Fire Emblem Heroes players. Yesterday, the quiz wrapped up its “Hard” round of questions and all were answered correctly, which means that everyone will receive at least five orbs and 2,500 Hero Feathers on April 7th. Even better rewards are possible if people answer the “Lunatic” round of questions, which start today.


The Japanese Fire Emblem Heroes Twitter account has detailed some of the changes and updates soon coming to the game, and Reddit user Van24 has kindly translated them.

First of all, you will be able to adjust the starting positions of your units at the beginning of each battle. As long as you haven’t taken the first action, you can swap them around as often as you wish.

Next, some adjustments will be made to the experience earned by characters between 1-star and 4-star rarity. Specifically, the lower the star rank of a unit, the more experience they will earn fighting lower level enemies.

Finally, the maximum amount of stamina will be increased from 50 to 99. Orbs and Stamina Potions will then also refill 99 stamina.

These changes will go live with an update that will be available sometime in April.


Fire Emblem Heroes’ new Grand Hero Battle with King Michalis was added in earlier today. Footage showing the latest event can be found below.

The Grand Hero Battle against Michalis is now live in Fire Emblem Heroes, as well as a new Summoning Focus, Battling Michalis. Winning the challenging Grand Hero Battle will unlock Michalis for your army, with 3 and 4 star versions available for the different difficulties. The Focus will give a higher chance of rolling 5-star versions of Eliwood, Minerva, Gordin, and Selena. Both of these will run until March 28.

Fire Emblem Heroes has added a new series of Quests, the Lunatic Challenge Special Quests. These will run until April 7, and they challenge players to beat certain story missions (namely each mission from Chapters 1, 5, and 9) on the Lunatic difficulty with every teammate surviving and specific types of Heroes on their team. The challenges for Chapters 1 and 5 each provide 1 Orb, and the challenges for Chapter 9 provide 2 Orbs each, allowing players to earn up to 20 extra Orbs.

Also, the prizes for the Michalis preview event are now being distributed, providing 10 Orbs, 5,000 Hero Feathers, and 10 Stamina Potions to players for logging in.

The game also requires a small .1 MB data download.

Update: Results of the Michalis preview event: 54,666 players cleared the Hard battle, and 13,415 cleared the Lunatic battle. Everyone gets 10 Orbs, 10 Stamina Potions, and 5,000 Hero Feathers (thanks Brian).

Original: As was previously announced, the second Starter Support bonus map in Fire Emblem Heroes is now live. It’s available in two difficulties, Normal and Hard, and you get 3 orbs each for clearing them.

Also, this next piece of news flew a bit under the radar. The next Grand Hero Battle featuring Michalis will begin on Friday, March 24th, as the in-game notice describes – however, for some reason only the Japanese version of the game announced the following on top of that: on Monday, March 20th from 12:15 PM CET to 1 PM CET (roughly 90 minutes after this post went live), a special early preview of the Michalis Grand Hero Battle will be available. During that time, players can attempt both the Hard and Lunatic versions of the battle to try and get Michalis early. There will also be rewards sent out to all players the more people can beat the map during this limited time frame:

Hard & Lunatic clear rewards:

In addition to the Starter Support event, those of you playing Fire Emblem Heroes on an Android device will find another nice surprise waiting for you: a free 4-star (female) Corrin. While she’s not the most powerful unit ever, she might be a good candidate to test the new skill inheritance system.

Again, she is only being sent out to Android users – no such luck for people playing the game on an Apple device.

A new set of Quests based on the Training Tower has begun in Fire Emblem Heroes. The Quests will run until April 3, and completing each one will unlock 3 Orbs. Each Quest must also be completed with all four allies surviving. The Quests are as follows:

The Inherit Skill feature has finally arrived to Fire Emblem Heroes. It allows you to transfer skills from one Hero to another.

Picking two Heroes, you can send up to three skills from one of them to the other. The Hero transferring the skills over will be removed from you army afterwards. Some skills are non-transferable, and some cannot be transferred between different types of Heroes. For example, you cannot send a character’s weapon over to another character who has a different weapon type. Also, you cannot use Heroes who are listed as your favorite as a source.

Once the skill is transferred, it is not automatically unlocked. It must be unlocked through SP, and the SP cost will be 1.5 times as much as it was for its original Hero.
If a transferred Skill can be learned by a Hero by raising their star rating, though, the cost will be the regular amount.
