Heroes: Alm & Celica Bound Hero Battle Special Map and Summoning Focus!

A new challenge awaits you in Fire Emblem Heroes! Today marks the beginning of a new event: Bound Hero Battles. The first Bound Hero Battle features the two lords from the newest game, Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia.

Bound Hero Battles function very similarly to Grand Hero Battles. They’re available in three difficulties, and all four heroes must survive the map in order to earn your rewards. However, you do not earn a new hero as a prize. Instead, Orbs are rewarded for completing each map. You earn 2 Orbs for Hard, 3 for Lunatic, and 4 for Infernal.

A new Summoning Focus banner is also available! Within the Alm and Celica’s Battle banner, you can summon 5★ versions of three Echoes characters: Genny, Clair, and Lukas. Alm, Faye, Mae, and Boey are also still available in the current Tempest Trials banner.

The Alm & Celica Bound Heroes Battle and its associated Summoning Focus will be available for one week until 13 July at 6:59am UTC. Do your best to complete these maps and earn some useful Orbs!
