Fire Emblem Heroes update announced (version 7.2.0), patch notes
Posted on February 3, 2023 by Nicolas in Mobile, News
Nintendo and Intelligent Systems have announced the next update coming to Fire Emblem Heroes. The update, version 7.2.0, is set to release on February 5 in North America and February 6 in Europe.
This new version will feature a new pity system for Summoning Events, the Focus Charge feature. The update is otherwise pretty standard, offering new weapons and skills to existing characters and making a few other minor adjustments.
The patch notes for Fire Emblem Heroes version 7.2.0 are as follows:
■ Summoning events are being updated
As introduced in Feh Channel February 1, 2023, we are making updates to some summoning events.
○ The Focus Charge feature is being added!
We will add a Focus Charge feature to all summoning events that have 5★ and 5★ focus Hero categories.
Focus Charge is a new feature that will be activated after you summon three non-focus 5★ Heroes and will increase the appearance rate of 5★ focus Heroes by the amount of the non-focus 5★ Hero category, reducing the non-focus 5★ Hero category’s appearance rate to 0%.
When a 5★ Hero is summoned while the Focus Charge feature is active, it is guaranteed to be a 5★ focus Hero.
・ This feature will be available for some summoning events only when you are subscribed to Feh Pass.
・ The Focus Charge feature will not be available for summoning events that began at or before 2/5/2023 11:00 p.m.(PT), including the Hero Fest, even after 2/6/2023 11:00 p.m.(PT)
See the notification titled Feh Channel Supplement, Part 1: Focus Charge for details about this feature and which events it is available for.
○ The 4★ Special Hero Special Rate is being updated.
Forty Special Heroes who appeared between February of 2019 and January of 2020 will appear in the 4★ Special Hero Special Rate category.
Also, we will add 10 types of Special Hero summoning event revivals for which the 4★ Special Hero Special Rate will be set.
Note: This change will be applied for the first time for the Special Heroes Revival: Greil’s Devoted summoning event starting on 2/23/2023 11:00 p.m.(PT)
See the notification titled Feh Channel Supplement, Part 2: 4★ SH Special Rate for details.

The following Legendary and Mythic Heroes will appear anew in Legendary & Mythic Hero Remixes.

Also, starting with Ver. 7.2.0, two Remix events will be held simultaneously each time.
Don’t let this chance to meet even more Legendary and Mythic Heroes pass you by!
