Echoes: Cipher Companions DLC Out Today!

Today, the final piece of DLC for Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia is available to download in Japan and the West. (As soon as the eShop updates in each respective region.)

As we’ve reported in the past, Cipher Companions features 2 maps that, together, allow you to recruit the four Cipher mascots to your party: Emma, Randal (formerly known as Lando), Yuzu and Shade.

This is a very interesting turn of events given that the Cipher card game–where these characters come from–is currently only released in Japan and even the English DLC descriptions acknowledge this.

In any case, you can find the new characters’ profiles and detailed breakdown below!

Heroes: Return of Michalis’s Grand Hero Battle

Starting from today and until 28th June 2016 when a “new day” begins, Fire Emblem Heroes players can re-challenge Michalis: Ambitious King in a Grand Hero Battle.

As usual with repeats, there are some additional quests to make it worthwhile for those who’ve already completed one or both maps. Completion of all quests will net you 3 Orbs and a 3★ Michalis.

Heroes: Upcoming Maintenance & Michalis Flies Again

To prepare for version 1.5.0 of Fire Emblem Heroes, the game will go offline between 26th June 2016 at 11 pm and 27th June 2016 at 1 am (UTC; times are approximate). No details about the contents of this update or its release date have been provided.

Additionally, while it was known to data-miners, the official Japanese Twitter has revealed that the Michalis Grand Hero Battle will be returning tomorrow. Presumably like other repeats, there will be related quests to earn more copies of Michalis.

Heroes: Weekly Arena Quests & Legion Apology Orbs

After a notable absence, a new set of Arena Quests have been added to Fire Emblem Heroes starting from today.

For 3 weeks (ending 11th July 2017), players can challenge weekly quests that award Dueling Swords, Stamina Potions and Orbs for clearing the Arena.

Sadly there are no Hero Feathers up for grabs this time, but there have been other ways to get them lately, such as via the Tempest Trials.

Additionally, as promised, all players have been gifted 5 Orbs as an apology for a mishap with the Legion Grand Hero Battle. Be sure to pick them up from the Present List before 4th July 2017 is over!

Update: Quest details can be found below.
