Fire Emblem Heroes

Fire Emblem Heroes is preparing for a new summoning event. This week, players will be able to get their hands on Ylgr and Surtr. A new Paralogue Story will also be included.

Fire and Ice in Fire Emblem Heroes starts on November 21. View a trailer for what’s in store below.

The second season of Aether Raids is now live in Fire Emblem Heroes, and with it a special celebration event. Until December 10th, you can earn special Aether Stone SP items by completing time-limited quests that require you to defeat enemies and attack successfully in Aether Raids. They can then be spent on three special items for your fortress – the Feh Statue, Flower Bed and Streetlamp. These are items are cosmetic only and have no combat function.

Corrin: Fateful Prince and Cana: Dragon Princess are in Special Maps in the Fire Emblem mobile game. At the same time, Corrin, Kana, and Silas are part of a 5-star summoning focus. The first summon doesn’t require you to spend any orbs. The Bound Hero battle runs through November 22.

A small update is now available for Fire Emblem Heroes. Nintendo and Intelligent Systems have started distribution of version 2.11.1

Below are the full patch notes:

A small update was applied to Fire Emblem Heroes today. You should get a download prompt for it when you start the game. It fixes the following issues:

  • Adjusted the Rank Rewards received at the end of a season in Aether Raids
  • Fixed an error in the description for the Healing Tower (O) structure
  • Fixed and issue where the wrong background music played on the final map of Tempest Trials+: Before We Met…

Additionally, the game will be updated to version 2.11.1 tomorrow, which will include the following changes:

  • Changed the equation for calculating the amount of Aether consumed when going into battle in Aether Raids
  • Fixed an issue that prevented replaying the full defense battle replay in Aether Raids

Also, new Arena Quests have gone live today. They will be available until November 29th. As per usual, these come in three difficulty settings, and you need to clear all quests on one difficulty to access the quests on the harder difficulty. Clearing the quests gets you a variety of rewards, including orbs, feathers and dueling crests.

Finally, it’s Thursday, which means that Tactics Drills got updated. The new map “Overprotective Corrin” can be found in the Skill Studies section.

A new Summoning Focus has gone live in Fire Emblem Heroes, this time with a theme of New Power.

Fittingly, the characters featured in this new banner have all received new weapons as part of the game’s latest refinery update. These characters include Saber (Driven Mercenary), Shanna (Sprightly Flier), Florina (Lovely Flier), and Bartre (Fearless Warrior).


A number of new materials are now live in Fire Emblem Heroes, including Tap Battle stages, season Elements, and a new set of Bonus Heroes in the Arena.

To be precise, four additional stages for the latest Illusory Dungeon event can now be completed in Tap Battle. Additionally, Water and Wind have been set as the new Elements for this season of play, while the Arena will now offer bonuses for the use of the following characters: Eirika (Graceful Resolve), Corrin (Dream Prince), Corrin (Dream Princess), Camilla (Flower of Fantasy), Mikoto (Caring Mother), Azura (Young Songstress), Julius (Scion of Darkness), Robin (Mystery Tactician), Gwendolyn (Adorable Knight), and Anna (Commander).


Fire Emblem Heroes keeps on trucking, and it was once again a successful month for the mobile game in October. Between the App Store and Google Play, the game saw roughly $17.4 million worldwide. It provided Nintendo with $12.2 million and about $200 million in 2018 overall.

Fire Emblem Heroes has been responsible for approximately 72% of Nintendo’s mobile game revenue to date in 2018. In October though, that figure dropped to about 37% as Dragalia Lost grew to account for more than half of player spending in its smartphone titles.

The latest Tempest Trials+ event is now available. It features Azura: Young Songstress as well as the two Sacred Seals, Atk/Def Bond 1 and Water Boost 1 as big rewards. Players can clear maps to earn rewards, as well as earn Refining Stones through daily quests. The rewards for daily quests will increase in the second half of the event. Check the app for more information.

On November 12, Fire Emblem Heroes will be hosting its next big event. Tempest Trials+: Before We Met is set to begin and will feature Azura: Young Songstress as well as the two Sacred Seals, Atk/Def Bond 1 and Water Boost 1 as big rewards. Players can clear maps to earn rewards.

Tying in with the new Tempest Trials+, a related summoning focus is now live for the bonus allies in that event. A trio of Heroes from among the bonus allies are available as part of a 5-star summoning focus.

By the way, Grand Hero Julius: Scion of Darkness has returned in Special Maps. By defeating him, you can gain him as an ally. There are also limitd-time special quests available until November 16.
