Over on the official Fire Emblem Heroes Japanese Twitter they seem to be hinting towards a new hero being revealed on September 29th. You can see the heroes silhouetted up above, your guess is as good as mine.


Earlier this month, Nintendo announced a partnership with Post cereals. Marked packages are offering consumers a chance to win one of 500 Switch Prize Packs, featuring a Switch system and Super Mario Odyssey.

20 million Post Consumer Brand cereal boxes come with codes. These include Honey Bunches of Oats, Grape Nuts, Honeycomb, Golden Crisp and Alpha-Bits, as well as in Malt-O-Meal cereals such as Honey Graham Toasters, Coco Roos and Marshmallow Mateys.

Even if you don’t win one of the packs, there’s still something in it for you. Coes can be used to earn Platinum Points. We knew this previously, but reader Ben tells us that it’s 50 Platinum Points specifically.

Nintendo previously made it known that Miitomo suffered from a couple of issues on iOS 11. An update was sent out today in order to address those problems.

These points in particular are now fixed:

– When sharing answers or QR Code patterns to Facebook, an unrelated error message appears and the answer or QR Code cannot be shared.
– When sharing answers, Miifoto images, or QR Code patterns to Twitter, an unrelated error message appears and the answer, Miifoto, or QR Code cannot be shared.

Also, as a general note for all iOS users, Nintendo has implemented various small bug fixes.

Update 1.3.0 of the Switch Parental Controls app is out now on iOS devices. This versions adds support for iOS 11 and also implements several bug fixes.


A number of new items have been added to Miitomo. Among the selection you’ll find in the app, the following are now available:

– Glam rock wig
– Botanical shirt + tailored jacket
– Long sweater vest

These items can be obtained by using Miitomo coins in Miitomo Shop.


Intelligent Systems has been making Fire Emblem games for many, many years. However, with Fire Emblem Heroes, the studio had to rethink its approach somewhat. Intelligent Systems and Nintendo weren’t just going to take the gameplay as is and plop it on to mobile devices as is.

That unique experience of working on Fire Emblem Heroes will help Intelligent Systems moving forward. That’s according to Kouhei Maeda, one of the game’s directors.

Maeda recently told IGN:

“What we’ve learned from working on Fire Emblem Heroes will really help us as we work on future games. As we’re working on future games, we’re thinking about what is it that fans want and what is it fans like, and we’re able to look at the data we get from Fire Emblem Heroes [and apply that].”

Thanks to Johnathan for the tip.


Fire Emblem Heroes players have another chance to collect Sacred Seals. These can be earned in the Extra Sacred Seals quests, now available.

Clearing the quests will net you the rewards. If you’ve already nabbed the Sacred Seals, you’ll earn Hero Feathers instead.

Miitomo has been updated with more content. Users will find returning stages with more items.

“An unpredictable experience! Exploration Adventures” is the returning theme. The stages provide the following:

– Explorer’s hat

– Lion hood
