Fire Emblem Heroes is running a special event called the 3-part Starter Support event. The event will run until April 2, during which players will earn 2 Orbs as a log-in bonus and earn 1.5 times XP. Furthermore, there are two special maps available for the event, one of which is live now. The maps will give 3 Orbs for completing them, and each will have two difficulties to do so.

Nintendo is set to double the amount of Switch consoles in production, according to the Wall Street Journal. This production would start on April 1, and it would see the company manufacturing at least 16 million units. The Wall Street Journal also notes that this momentum is similar to that of the Wii.


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.

World of Goo footage

World of Goo will be hitting the Switch eShop, and Nintendaan has recorded some footage of the port in action. Watch below for the gooey puzzling.

The next Grand Hero Battle in Fire Emblem Heroes will start on March 24. The battle will be against Michalis, the Ambitious King, and will most likely unlock him for your army like the previous events.


Fire Emblem Heroes has announced a pretty massive update slated for April. The update will include some tweaks to the basic game, as well as a few new features. These are as follows:

  • Merging Heroes will allow one Hero to inherit the Skills of another. Previously, merging Heroes only granted bonus stats, but now it will allow duplicate Heroes to pass on skills they have learned.
  • Hero Merit: a new stat for Heroes. Different Heroes will gain Hero Merit by participating in battles and, once their Merit is high enough, will earn Hero Feathers. Duplicate Heroes will share the Merit stat.
  • New battle rule sets: there will be two new rules on battles. Defense maps will be beaten by lasting a certain number of rounds, rather than clearing all enemies. Some maps will also have Reinforcements, where more enemy units will spawn.
  • Arena matchmaking: being tweaked to increase score and balance. Players will no longer be matched up against opponents based on total base stats, but rather on four factors: character levels/ratings, bonuses gained through Merge Allies, total base stats after removing skills, and equipped skills.
  • Notifications will only display once a day.
  • You can view descriptions of Bonus Heroes in the Arena.
  • There are also more Grand Hero Battles on the horizon, with time frames as follows:

    Japan is set to get a special hat-wearing Ash Pikachu in May, with different hats depending on when you redeem your code. Now, details have released about the differences between the Pikachu, and Serebii has translated the details.

    While each Pikachu comes in a Poke Ball, has Static as its ability, and is holding a Pikashunium, the different versions have different levels and movesets, as follows:
    Original Cap – Level 1 – Thunderbolt, Quick Attack, Thunder, Agility
    Hoenn Cap – Level 6 – Thunderbolt, Quick Attack, Thunder, Iron Tail
    Sinnoh Cap – Level 10 – Thunderbolt, Quick Attack, Iron Tail, Volt Tackle
    Unova Cap – Level 14 – Thunderbolt, Quick Attack, Iron Tail, Volt Tackle
    Kalos Cap – Level 17 – Thunderbolt, Quick Attack, Iron Tail, Electro Ball
    Alola Cap – Level 20 – Thunderbolt, Quick Attack, Iron Tail, Electro Ball
