Fire Emblem Heroes update out next version (version 6.8.0), patch notes
Nintendo and Intelligent Systems have shared the full patch notes for the Fire Emblem Heroes version 6.8.0 update, which was first mentioned during this week’s Feh Channel presentation.
There’s a lot planned here, but we’ll just mention some of the highlights. Binding Worlds will be added as a new event, new skills are being added for a Legendary and Mythic Hero, new Memento Events are being added to Heroes Journey, and more.
The full patch notes for the Fire Emblem Heroes version 6.8.0 update are as follows:
■ A new event, Binding Worlds, is being added!
A new event called Binding Worlds is coming soon, and you’ll need to cooperate with friends to achieve success! Enter worlds that have been closed off by Embla and reopen them with the power of your bonds by cooperating with the Heroes of other worlds!
The new game mode features Divine Askr Gates placed throughout its stages, called Enclosures. When a Hero ends their move on top of one of these gates, you will be able to swap them out for another player’s Hero, who will take to the field in place of your Hero.
The Hero who swaps with your Hero can act right away! Use these gates to make the best of your advantages as you progress through the battles that await.
There’s more to it than just borrowing strength from other players. You can also dispatch your Heroes to aid others. Send out Heroes you are proud of to support the efforts of others and free as many worlds as you can!
You can get Orbs and Dragonflowers by playing once each day! On top of that, when you clear a stage for the first time, you will receive rewards such as Dragonflowers, Divine Codes (Ephemera), Orbs, and more!
Binding Worlds is scheduled to be held for the first time starting 8/12/2022 12:00 p.m.(PT)
More details and gameplay tips will be included in notifications leading up to the event.
You can see a small preview of this event in action in the Feh Channel (Aug. 1, 2022) video that was recently released. We hope you take a look!
