Heroes: “Heroes with Chill Skills” banner is now live!

Today is a day that many have been waiting for: A “Heroes with Chill Skills” banner, featuring some of Heroes’ more popular units.

In this banner, we have Ophelia: Dramatic Heroine (Chill Res 3), Ranulf: Friend of Nations (Chill Atk 3), and Celica: Imprisoned Soul (a.k.a. Fallen Celica) (Chill Spd 3).

Now is your best chance to snipe for any of these units, should you desire them. You have until the 4th of July, 6:59am UTC to do so.

Three Houses: Few Details via Download Card & Upcoming Japanese Merchandise

There’s roughly one month to go until Three Houses is released. Apparently, retailers in Japan are now stocking the cards for the digital version of the game. Naturally, it’s not possible to play the game just yet, but there are some neat details on the back of the card.

Firstly, the game’s file size is 11.9 GB (and over). Which is useful to know if you’re planning to get the game digitally. For reference, the Switch version of Fire Emblem Warriors was around 13 GB. Meanwhile, the 3DS games weighed around 1 GB each.

Next, the game will support Nintendo Switch Online (the paid service). From what we know, the game does not feature online (or local) multiplayer (via Game Informer etc.). Presumably it’s for the Global Activity feature, which compares weekend statistics from players across the world.

The game will support amiibo, but no details were given. Earlier, we saw an amiibo Gazebo in the monastery grounds. I’m also curious if there will be new amiibo created for the game; for example of Byleth and the three house leaders. We had new amiibo for Echoes and Warriors.

Lastly, to nobody’s surprise, the game will have paid DLC. This time they gave some details but not a lot. Apparently you’ll be able to purchase things like new quests (the ones you can accept from bulletin boards), side stories (presumably paralogues) and costumes. I’m rather intrigued by the last one…

In slightly unrelated news, Empty recently announced some new lines of merchandise for the game, scheduled for release during late July.
