Heroes: Details for Version 5.3.0, Arriving on 3rd March 2021 (UTC)

We’re coming to another month soon, which means another version update for Fire Emblem Heroes! Version 5.3.0 is expected to arrive on 3rd March 2021, at 11 pm (UTC).

Without further ado, here’s the list of changes…

Addition of Divine Codes (Part 2)

A new series of standard (yellow paper) Divine Codes will be added: Divine Codes (Part 2). After the update (and each new season begins), all rewards that gave Divine Codes (Part 1) will give the new ones instead.

Divine Codes (Part 2) can be used to compile Heroes from the newly-added “Normal 2” category, which also includes Heroes from Three Houses (among many others).

Note that you can continue to use Divine Codes (Part 1) to compile the original set of “Normal 1” Heroes. On top of that, if you don’t have enough Divine Codes (Part 1), you can pay the remainder using Divine Codes (Part 2).

Tempest Trials+

“Target Score” will be added. There are 5 levels of Target Score; the first time your high score surpasses a Target Score, you’ll receive a bonus to your Cumulative Score.

Target Score Bonus Score
150 +350
250 +500
350 +1000
450 +2000
600 +3000

The stage select screen will also be updated to display your cumulative score, next cumulative score reward, high score and the next Target Score along the top.

Heroes: “A Hero Rises 2021” Voting Gauntlet Has Begun!

A friendly reminder for Summoners: the second phase of A Hero Rises 2021 has started! As advertised, the top 8 winners will battle each other in an in-game Voting Gauntlet.

The event lasts the usual 6 days (give or take), split between 3 rounds. Unlike usual, there won’t be a 1.1 score bonus for deploying the same Hero as the one you’re supporting. Here are the brackets:

  • Seiros vs Bride Duo Micaiah
  • Freyja vs Legendary Corrin (F)
  • Ninja Duo Lyn vs Summer Duo Byleth (F)
  • Legendary Dimitri vs Brave Edelgard

Yes, it seems Edelgard and Dimitri’s rivalry still continues…

Outside of the game, you can check the Voting Gauntlet progress via the official website.

Once the event is over, the winning Hero will be gifted to all players, regardless of their team choice. Also, there will be a summoning event featuring the top 4 winners (along with a guaranteed pick after 40 summons) during the 2nd half of March 2021.

Heroes: Music Compilation Video Featuring 43 Tracks!

Over the years, the Fire Emblem series has produced some amazing music–and it seems Nintendo is quite proud of this, because they’ve uploaded a music compilation on YouTube highlighting some of the greats.

The video features 43 tracks that appear in Fire Emblem Heroes, for a run time of 105 minutes. There’s a song from every mainline game, although Shadow Dragon (NES and DS versions) and Gaiden have been assimilated into their sequels/remakes.

Sorry for the Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE or Fire Emblem Warriors fans.

There are also timestamps in the description for each individual track, if you’re looking for something specific. Of note, this appears to be the first time we’ve seen official names for some of these songs. Such as “Howling Gears” for the Book V map theme.
