Nintendo has released a trailer showing new characters that are on the way to Fire Emblem Heroes. On April 14, the game will be adding Alm, Clair, Lukas, and Faye. A new Paralogue, “World of Shadows” will be available on the same day.

Here’s the video:

With the new Sacred Seals feature being added to Fire Emblem Heroes, the game now features some Quests and log-in bonuses running until April 28. By completing various Quests, players can earn Sacred Seals, as well as a few characters and orbs. Furthermore, until the event ends, players can earn 2 Orbs each day as a log-in bonus.

Furthermore, the rewards for the Voting Gauntlet have now been distributed: by logging in, players will recieve 20 Orbs, 5 of each Great Badge, and 5,000 Universal Crystals.

The latest patch for Fire Emblem Heroes has led dataminers to uncover more Heroes, who will be characters from the upcoming Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. The characters Alm, Lukas, Faye, and Clair all appear to be coming to the mobile game, along with a paralogue featuring them. It’s uncertain when these will go live, but it stands to reason that it will be soon, to coincide with Fire Emblem Echoes’ release on April 20. Full artwork for all the characters can be viewed in a gallery below:

Nintendo has distributed a new update for Miitomo on both iOS and Android. For both platforms, versions 2.2.2 is available.

Nintendo is keeping somewhat quiet on the specifics for today’s patch. The notes only state that it implements feature improvements.


Update 1.2.0 is coming to Fire Emblem Heroes, and to implement it, the game will undergo maintenance, during which you won’t be able to play. The maintenance will last about 5 hours; exact times are below:

  • 12 AM (April 12th) – 5 AM (April 12th) in Europe
  • 7 AM (April 12th) – 12 PM (April 12th) in Japan
  • 6 PM (April 11th) – 11 PM (April 11th) in the US (East Coast)

Although we don’t know for sure, it’s likely that this is the big April update that has been teased for a while now, which will add features like 99 max stamina, the ability to swap the starting positions of your units before battle, and more.

In celebration of Miitomo’s first anniversary, Nintendo has brought back the “Let nature soothe you. Forest Friends” stage as voted in through a Twitter survey. Users can obtain popular items in this coin-exclusive special level.
