Heroes: New banner “Kitsune and Wolfskin,” and new Forging Bonds event

Today sees the release of more Beast units! Fire Emblem Fates “Kitsune and Wolfskin” tribes finally make their way into Fire Emblem Heroes.

The Heroes are Selkie: Free Spirit, Kaden: Kitsune Braggart, Velouria: Wolf Cub, and Keaton: Lupine Collector.

The banner begins today, and will come to a close on the 8th of March, 6:59am UTC.

Coinciding with the new banner is a new Forging Bonds event featuring the four new Heroes, titled “The Orb Case.”

Earn up to 2 Orbs daily (maximum 14 Orbs), along with conversations, new accessories and materials like Heroic Grails and Feathers as you raise your bonds with the four units. You can also earn up to four First Summon Tickets that can be used for a free first summon on the new Kitsune and Wolfskin banner.

This event begins today and will end on the 6th of March, 6:59am UTC. Be sure to grab everything before it ends!

Also today: Book III, Chapter 4 “A King’s Worth” has been released. I wonder how many days have passed since Alfonse was afflicted with that death curse.

Cipher Winter 2019 Livesteam: New S16 Cards, S17 Art, & S18 Announcement!

This past Saturday, Ryota Kawade and Young hosted the Cipher Winter 2019 Livesteam live over NicoNico and YouTube! The stream also featured two Voice Actor guests: Jun Fukuyama (Roy, Innes) and Minami Takahashi (Peri, Alice). As always, it was a treat for Cipher and Fire Emblem Fans of all types.

After the stream, the @fecipher twitter team also revealed digital versions of 3 new SR cards from the stream: Celica, Sanaki, & Dieck!

Celica’s SR card has two different versions, each featuring different artwork by Sencha. This version of Sanaki’s SR is actually a special gold foil version signed by her VA, Mai Nakahara. Finally, Dieck’s SR forms the second part of the large Elibean joined-art teased during the last time. He gets to wield the Thunder Axe, Armads.

Many more cards from S16 were shown off during the stream as well. We also got to see our first look at artwork for June’s S17, and heard our first news for September’s S18! Click on the Read More to see further details and images.

Heroes: Grand Hero Battle Revival: Jamke!

While you’re waiting for the new banner to come to Fire Emblem Heroes, we’ve got another GHB Revival to play! Build up a strong team to tackle Grand Hero Battle Revival: Jamke.

For those who were unable to complete the maps earlier, now is a great time to try again. Even if you have, you can also complete some GHB-related quests! Use Jamke, Fjorm, and Armored heroes to complete the GHB and earn up to 4 Orbs and an extra 3★ copy of Jamke himself. You can check out full quest details in-game.

Grand Hero Battle Revival: Jamke will be around for a bit less than a week, ending on 24 February. Best of luck on the quests and battles until then!

If that’s not enough to keep your busy, we also have other events still on which to spend some time and stamina. The second round of Grand Conquests will begin in about three hours. We also have two days remaining for the current Tempest Trials+.

Heroes: New Heroes (Kitsune and Wolfskin)

It was only a matter of time until the ever popular Kitsune and Wolfskin made it into the game, and with the advent of Laguz units right behind us, now seems as good of a time as any to introduce them. Enter fathers Keaton and Kaden, and their daughters Velouria and Selkie, in this New Heroes: Kitsune and Wolfskin banner.

Interestingly, within the batch, two of the four are 3-move units, with pretty hefty skill descriptions that are on par with Fiora’s personal weapon. Not only that, but a new Sabotage (#Stat)Sabotage Atk 3 skill has been added, which will likely introduce more of its own to cover the other stats.

Additionally, Panne: Proud Taguel, a blue Beast, can be spotted both in the trailer and in the news article with the trailer. She’ll be the next reward unit for the upcoming Tempest Trials+, starting on February 24 at 2a PT. This, comes in tandem with the new Story Chapter, A King’s Worth, which will bring its own Orbs via rewards.

*Edit: She is the prize unit for a Grand Hero Battle, not a Tempest Trials+.

Kitsune and Wolfskin kicks off on February 19 at 11p PT, and these heroes will be available through future summoning events.
