Heroes: “Overseas Memories” Features Summer Heroes from Three Houses!

Students and their teacher from Three Houses are looking to make summer memories in Fire Emblem Heroes, in the upcoming “Overseas Memories” summoning event.

This time around, the silhouettes–if you saw them via the in-game notification–were fairly easy to guess. The Heroes that can be summoned between 8th July and 8th August (UTC) are Summer versions of: Ingrid, Dorothea, Sylvain and Duo Byleth (with Rhea).

Also, Sylvain can be summoned as a 4-star Focus Hero. Additionally, a Summer version of Lorenz can be obtained in the next Tempest Trials+ event. Of note, with the exception of Byleth, this is the first time any of the characters have appeared in Heroes.

For a text breakdown of the Heroes’ skills and whatnot, please continue on!

Community Chronicles: Greg Chun (Ike, Ephraim, Lukas, & more) kicks off streaming July 5, 8-10p PT

Hello, friends of Fire Emblem. This is Elieson, and I’ve got an announcement for you. A good friend of mine and beloved voice actor & music director, Greg Chun is finally prepared to debut his livestream, and I figured I’d share it for ya’ll.

Who is Greg Chun?

His talents include being the voices of but not limited to these many-a-character, including the Fire Emblem Ike, Ephraim, Lukas, as well as Judgment’s Yagami Takayuki and much more than that. I personally am quite fond of his ASMR, featuring a recent dedicated ASMR video, and his infamous ASMR-rific cheesecake recipe reading. Additionally, Greg was the music director behind the famous Super Mario Odyssey “Jump Up, Super Star!” song as well as the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate “Lifelight” song, so he’s a trusted and talented director.

What’s he streaming, and when?

His debut stream is going to be on Sunday, July 5th, from 8p-10p PT, and he’ll be streaming Game Music Composition, helping music lovers and music writers learn and refine the techniques behind making a moment more memorable through the power of music. Taking input from viewers, he’ll put out live polls and write music that tells a story of what _you_ want to happen, showing how to “set the mood”, as it were. His continuing series of streams will be showing how to do this in a variety of programs, including Garage Band, so you’re certain to get something out of this.
As said above, he’ll be continuing to stream, so if you’d like to follow along with his endeavors, or if you want to socialize with him and his many Chunderlings (myself included), follow him on Twitch, and join the Chunderworld Discord server to say howdy once in a while!

How can I visit his sites, and be part of this going forward?

General Site, for everything Greg Chun: https://GregChun.Live
Discord: https://discord.gg/qTyjVWM
Twitch: https://www.twitch.tv/GregChunVA
Twitter: https://twitter.com/greg_chun

Lastly, to continue the support of Greg, and the voice acting community as a whole, you may see me showcasing others in the Fire Emblem’s voice acting community, as I have with artists, by sharing some light on upcoming events and new talents, sharing some social media links, and above all, just bringing some positivity to the people that help make our beloved franchise that much more special for us as players. I already have quite a few in mind, but if you know of anyone that you feel deserves some spotlight treatment, let me know and I’ll do my part to make sure that they get some!
