As we approach April, there’s a fair amount happening (hoppening?) in Fire Emblem Heroes.
Starting 1st April, there will be a Voting Gauntlet event between spring-themed Heroes from 2017 to present. The initial brackets are: Idunn vs Narcian, Catria vs Veronica, Palla vs Loki and Xander vs Est.
With the exception of Loki and Xander, all Heroes are available to summon now. As for Loki, you can grab her with Heroic Grails; for Xander, you’ll have to wait a short while until the Spring Festival banner returns.
Some time in April, when the next version update drops, four good ol’ Heroes will be receiving new weapon skills and/or refinery options:
- Eirika: Gleipnir refine
- Gunter: Inveterate Axe + refine
- Gaius: Candied Dagger + refine
- Ursula: Blue-Crow Tome + refine
Also, in case you missed it, there’s currently a Heroes with Even Wave skills banner. The featured Heroes are: Shannan, Selkie and Osian. Last but not least, there’s a Lost Lore event centred around Path of Radiance.
Please don’t send Oliver with Reyson.
Last year, Dragalia Lost–a mobile game developed by Cygames and Nintendo–had a big crossover event with Fire Emblem Heroes.
During Dragalia Lost’s 1 and a half year anniversary video, it was announced that the FEH crossover event would be returning on 19th April (or 20th April depending on your time zone), which is just in time for Fire Emblem’s 30th anniversary!
To celebrate the re-run, the four Fire Emblem Adventurers introduced last year (Fjorm, Marth, Alfonse and Veronica) will receive unlocked Mana Spirals. Upgrading their Mana Spirals will increase their maximum Level and improve their stats and abilities.
There was also one more surprise… In addition to the re-run, there will be a second, brand new crossover event, coming later in April. At the moment, there are no further details, but if the first crossover was anything to go by, it’s gonna be worth the wait!
A few days ago, the May 2020 issue of Nintendo Dream was released; it featured an interview with the development staff of Three Houses, which delved into the secrets of Fodlan’s birth, as well as spoilers relating to the key characters.
The interview itself is in Japanese, but thanks to fans, the important parts have been translated! Before continuing, please be aware that there are big spoilers for pretty much every route. Especially for the Edelgard and Claude routes.
Topics include the very first route that was written for the game (any guesses which one?), plus discussions about Edelgard, Rhea and Claude (which is where we learn his real name…).
By the way, for any Dimitri fans who are wondering, they do talk about him, but there doesn’t seem to be much new (which could be a good thing, as it means all the important stuff is already in the game).
