Heroes: New Summoning Focus for Weapon Triangle Skill Users!

Fire Emblem Heroes got a new surprise summoning focus today! Entitled Weapon Triangle Skill Users, its four focus heroes are Azura, Cecilia, Hinata, and Titania.

As expected based on the name, all of these heroes use the weapon triangle to their advantage. Hinata, Azura, and Titania all wield a special coloured weapon that gives them a 20% Atk bonus when fighting with triangle advantage. Similarly, Cecilia’s weapon also gives her triangle advantage over colorless foes.

We’re not entirely sure what the occasion is for the new banner. Regardless, it will be available until 6 June at 7:59am UTC. We may still get some related quests or other in-game uses for these particular heroes in the meantime.

Fire Emblem Echoes Launches in North America & Europe

The time has come: Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia is officially out in North America and Europe!

We hope you’re enjoying the game if you have it! Otherwise, if your copy has yet to arrive (or if you’re still waiting for the Australian launch tomorrow), we hope the wait isn’t long!

By the way, if you need any help with the game, do feel free to peruse our Echoes game section (which is being rapidly updated to reflect the Western release) or ask on our forums!

Finally, it goes without saying, but if you like Echoes, don’t forget to recommend it to your fellow RPG or gaming fans. Although the Fire Emblem series is bigger than it used to be, it still need our help to continue growing!

Hopefully if Echoes performs well, we may start seeing more remakes of its calibre further down the line.

Heroes: Lloyd Grand Hero Battle & Banner + Mage Gauntlet Rewards!

It’s time for the next Grand Hero Battle in Fire Emblem Heroes! The star of the newest battle is Lloyd, one of the Four Fangs from Blazing Sword.

Like previous battles, you can play both a Hard and a Lunatic difficulty map to earn yourself a 3★ or 4★ version of the White Wolf, respectively. At 5★, Lloyd gains access to a new weapon, the Regal Sword, which gives him an Atk/Spd boost if he’s fighting a foe at full health. He also comes with Iceberg, Pass, and Threaten Atk.

If you’re having trouble completing Lloyd’s map, there’s a new Summon Focus available to help you out! The Battling Lloyd banner contains four 5★ focus units: Ninian, Raven, Klein, and Hinoka. Hopefully summoning one of these units can give you the boost you need to win the day!

Both the Grand Hero Battle and the matching banner will be available until 26 May at 7:59am UTC.

Interestingly enough, Lloyd is the final scheduled Grand Hero Battle. While it’s likely that there will be more in the future, the heroes of these battles are still unknown. Either we’ll learn them in an upcoming announcement or datamine, or they’ll remain a mystery until shortly before arrival.

Rewards from the Mage Gauntlet are now also available to all players! Visit Feh the owl on the home screen to pick up your 20 Orbs, 5 of each Great Badge, and 5,000 Universal Crystals.
