Heroes: Fire Emblem Warriors Special Maps!

A new series of Special Maps is now available in Fire Emblem Heroes! To celebrate the upcoming release of Fire Emblem Warriors, Heroes has added five new Fire Emblem Warriors Special Maps to the game. You can play each map on three different difficulties and earn up to 15 orbs for completing them all!

These maps are based on playable characters in Warriors: Frederick, Lucina, Hinoka, Takumi, or Camilla. Each map includes its featured character as a stronger “boss” with reinforcement waves of much weaker enemies. Sound familiar? Yes, you’re effectively playing a Warriors-style map in Heroes!

All of the maps are new and also include music from Warriors as well. Have fun killing waves of enemies while enjoying the new songs!

If that’s not enough for you, there is also a new series of quests for the maps as well! Clear all five maps on Normal and Hard difficulties under certain conditions to earn some Shards, Crystals, and Orbs. Check out the quest details below.

The Fire Emblem Warriors Special Maps and their associated quests will be available until 26 October at 6:59am UTC.

A new temporary battle event is now available in Fire Emblem Heroes! Challenge two heroes from Blazing Sword in Bound Hero Battle: Ninian & Hawkeye. You can also summon 5★ versions of Ninian, Hawkeye, and Eliwood in a matching banner.

As in previous Bound Hero Battles, you can fight in three different difficulties to earn up to nine Orbs! However, all of your heroes must survive the map in order to win. Be on your guard, since Ninian can also dance for the other enemy units!

The Fire Emblem Compendium: An Interview

If you have any interest in Fire Emblem Heroes, or even fanart of the just the games, you may have heard of the recently started The Fire Emblem Compendium project, founded by Yayster. The project itself strives to have a dedicated piece created specifically for this project, for over 700 characters in the Fire Emblem franchise. That’s a pretty monumental goal, right?

Well, so far, hundreds of artists have pooled their efforts together and assembled 627 pieces (at the time of this post). What’s crazier, is that hundreds of applications came in to get involved, within a handful of hours after announcing the project!

With roughly 100 characters left to complete, one can look forward to checking out the site and its many talented artists. As things are now, you can check out their site and get a peek at what’s already been completed.

I got a chance to meet the team and talk to Yayster (the head behind the project), and their entire team was excited to join in. Give it a read, and get an insider’s peek at what it takes to put together such a tremendous project!
