Fire Emblem Heroes has added some new Heroes from Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade to its lineup, as well as a new Focus to summon them, Paralogue Maps, and some Quests. The new characters are as follows:

  • Karel: Sword Demon (Red Sword)
  • Ninan: Oracle of Destiny (Blue Dragon)
  • Rebecca: Wildflower (Bow)
  • Jaffar: Angel of Death (Shruiken)
  • Priscilla: Delicate Princess (Staff)
  • Lucius: The Light (Staff)
  • The Event will be live until March 30. There are also new Paralogue Maps featuring the characters that are added to the game, as well as Quests for these maps that will run until March 30.

    Finally, the rewards for last week’s Voting Gauntlet are now live. All players will receive 20 Orbs, 5 of each Great Badge, and 5000 Universal Crystals. These will be sent to your gift box upon logging in.

    This update includes a required 17.3 MB download.

    Fire Emblem Heroes’ Voting Gauntlet has ended, with Lucina claiming victory, and a new Play Everyday Event has begun, which will give bonus rewards to players.

    There are multiple parts of the Play Everyday Event. Players can earn a one-time login bonus of 10 Dueling Crests by logging in before April 1. There are also special Quests that will start tomorrow, March 14, and run until April 11. While these are active, there will be challenges available for Arena Duels that can be cleared daily, with Hero Feathers and Orbs as the rewards.

    Finally, there are two changes that do not have a specified end period. Starting March 14, Arena Duels will make it easier to earn Hero Feathers. The announcement does not specify if players will earn more points, if the Feather rewards are greater, or something else. Also, the Weekend Log-in Bonus is being changed to a Daily Log-in Bonus, with each day offering up a bonus reward for logging in in addition to the Orb log-in bonus. These are as follows:

  • Monday – 100 Hero Feather
  • Tuesday – 1 Stamina Potion
  • Wednesday – 1 Dueling Crest
  • Thursday – 100 Hero Feathers
  • Friday – 1 Stamina Potion
  • Saturday – 1 Dueling Crest
  • Sunday – 1 Orb
  • Rewards for the Voting Gauntlet have not been distributed yet, although they will be in the future. There is also a Twitter campaign where, if enough specific tweets get over 50,000 retweets, all players will receive 5 Orbs. The tweet from the official Fire Emblem Heroes account can be found here.

    GameSpot was able to get a taste of what Fire Emblem Echoes has to offer at PAX East this weekend. In a new article, the site shares additional details and screenshots. Find the new content rounded up below.

    – Rather than moving directly from mission to mission, a world map allows you to have some freedom in choosing what you do next
    – Once again, dungeons are in the game
    – Explore dungeons in 3D with a third-person camera
    – Dungeons have destroyable objects and treasure chests with items and money to find
    – Encounter enemies in dungeons as well
    – Engaging one takes you into a standard Fire Emblem battle
    = It’s almost like a mini mission, as you still have access to your squad and face multiple enemies, rather than simply taking part in a one-on-one fight
    – Gain an edge by attacking the foe in the dungeon before combat begins, reducing their health to start the battle, – Enemies can do the same to you
    – Echoes follows a pair of “dueling” protagonists that you’ll swap between
    – Celica and Alm each set out to defend their country, but they take different approaches to doing so
    – Swap back and forth between the two routinely
    – Can spend longer stretches of time playing as one before jumping into the other’s story
    – First Fire Emblem game to feature full voice acting (some very minor characters aside)
    – Archers can now counter-attack from a single tile away
    – Mages now expend a portion of their health in order to cast spells
    – Weapon durability seems to be absent
    – No support system during battles
    – No traditional weapon triangle
    – There are still ways to gain an advantage in battles


    A few hours ago, Fire Emblem Heroes added in a new Grand Hero Battle featuring Ursula. Take a look at some footage below.

    Nintendo has readied a new “Zophia’s Call” trailer for Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. Watch the video ahead of the game’s May launch below.

    Another Grand Hero Battle has begun in Fire Emblem Heroes, this time against Ursula. The event will run until March 14. To get Ursula to join your team, you must defeat the enemy army and have all of your units survive. Beating the Hard version will earn you a three-star Ursula, while the Lunatic mode will unlock a four-star one.

    There is also a new Summoning Focus to coincide with the Grand Hero Battle. Titled “Battling Ursula”, it features Nino, Effie, Felicia, and Setsuna as its Focuses. It will likewise run until the 14th.

    You can check out some screenshots of the event below:

    Nintendo made it known that Fire Emblem Heroes is adding the new Inherit Skill feature on March 16. Additional details have since been published on the official Japanese Twitter account.

    It shares the following:

    – You can inherit up to three skills from one hero
    – The inherited skills will start off as mastered (on the new owner)
    – To learn the inherited skills, you’ll need 1.5 times more SP than usual

    The Twitter account goes on to say that exclusive hero skills like Falchion cannot be inherited. Finally, some skills may not be transferable depending on the inheritor hero’s weapon type and movement type.


    The Voting Gauntlet currently running in Fire Emblem Heroes has rewards for all participating players based on the end score. The highest goal was originally for 5 billion total score, but the current score is 6,089,630,753. As such, additional goals have been added.

    If players can total 8 billion points, everyone will be rewarded 15 Orbs, 5 of each Great Badge, and 2000 Universal Crystals. If the total hits 10 billion, everyone will be rewarded 20 Orbs, 5 of each Great Badge, and 5000 Universal Crystals. Get to battling, everyone!

    Fire Emblem Heroes will be getting its Inherit Skill update on March 16, at 3:00 AM (EST). It will allow Heroes to learn skills from other Heroes. The notification states that the release time could change.

    The teaser site for Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia is live. You can access the North American version here, and the UK version here. Both are pretty much the same.

    Fire Emblem Echoes’ full site should be going up in the near future. For now, you can look at some screenshots and read up on some of the game details.
