Heroes: Ike Finally Arrives!

You heard me right, Summoners. FE_Heroes_JP just tweeted (and Nintendo just posted to their YouTube channel), coverage announcing the arrival of some Tellius favorites from Fire Emblem Path of Radiance, Ike, Mist, Soren and Titania, in the World of Radiance paralogue. Check out the Japanese trailer here.

When will this arrive? Oh, no sooner than tomorrow!

Ike, voiced by Greg Chun (rather than his typical Jason Adkins), is seen boasting his 1~2 range Ragnell and covetted Aether, as well as a new skill, Heavy Blade. Not to be ignored, the other 3 come bearing some unique skills of their own, not yet seen in Fire Emblem Heroes for Mist (Sarah Williams), Soren (Kyle McCarley) and Titania (Misty Lee); Spur Def/Res +3, Watersweep and Guard, respectively).

Heroes: Grand Heroes Battle Revivals Live + New Quests!

Grand Hero Battles for Female Robin and Navarre have returned for a limited time in Fire Emblem Heroes! If you missed getting one or both versions of these heroes previously, now is a great time to pick them up.

Even if you already earned Robin and Navarre, the update comes with some quests relating to these battles. Entitled “Grand Hero Battles”, these new missions can earn you additional copies of both Heroes. You can also earn up for four Orbs!

Both the Grand Hero Battles and the associated quests will be around through 2 May at 7:59am UTC.

Additionally, another series of quests entitled “Helping Hand” is now available. Like the original Helping Hand quests, completing these quests earns you a large number of Universal Shards. You have until 5 May to complete these quests.

Ice Dragon Joining the Team + Kirie’s Promotion

Soon it will be three months since Fire Emblem Heroes launched and thankfully it seems to be showing no signs of slowing down. In order to keep up, I’m happy to announce that Ice Dragon will be joining the Serenes Forest team as an editor.

You may already know Ice Dragon on the forums, where he often loves to showcase his knowledge and passion for Heroes. He was also active during the days of Blazing Blade, although he vanished for a time until Heroes reared its head.

Anyway, having known of his capabilities for a long time, I am sure Ice Dragon will do a stellar job of maintaining the ever-growing Heroes section, alongside our other team members.

Speaking of which… Kirie, our resident Cipher news editor, will henceforth become a fully-fledged website editor. As well as handling Heroes news from time to time, she’s also contributed a couple of pages to the Heroes section already.

To finish off, we hope you continue to enjoy the website and see it grow. Hopefully very soon, we’ll have some more new faces on the team!

Heroes: Old Grand Hero Battles Return + New Special Missions!

@FE_Heroes_JP tweeted out an interesting announcement earlier today, leading to some speculation among Fire Emblem Heroes players…

As translated by VincentASM, the tweet fully states the following:

[Notice] From Monday 24th April at 16:00, the Grand Hero Battles “Robin – Mystery Tactician” and “Navarre – Scarlet Sword” make a reappearance! At the same time, there will be timed special missions where you can befriend Grand Hero(es)! Please try to challenge the Grand Hero Battles even if you’ve already cleared them previously.

The first part of the tweet is pretty straightforward: Grand Hero Battles for both Female Robin and Navarre will be available once again! If you missed getting one or both versions of these heroes, now is a great time to snag them up.

The second part of the tweet is where things get interesting. “Timed special missions” definitely implies that there will be some new content with this update. The last sentence also implies that these missions will be connected to the reappearing Grand Hero Battles in some way. However, no further details are as yet available.

Regardless, we won’t have to wait all too long for the mystery to be revealed. The update will go live during the very next game update at 7:59am UTC tomorrow!
