Heroes: Version 1.2.0 + “World of Shadows” Teaser

Today the Fire Emblem Heroes 1.2.0 update landed, bringing along a host of welcome gameplay improvements and features. One such feature is Sacred Seals, a new type of equippable item.

These function similarly to traditional Passive Skills, in that they provide various buffs when equipped, but the key difference is that they can be easily distributed between Heroes. Also, you may only possess one of each Sacred Seal.

To help players obtain Sacred Seals, a set of special quests have been added to the game, which run until 28th April 2017. During this time, there will be a Sacred Seals Log-in Bonus that awards 2 Orbs daily.

Additionally, for smashing last week’s Voting Gauntlet milestones, all players have been awarded 20 Orbs, 5 of each Great Badge and 5,000 Universal Crystals. These can be picked up from the Present List as usual.

Last but definitely not least, to celebrate the upcoming launch of Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia in Japan (and the Western launch in a month’s time), Nintendo released a trailer for a Echoes-themed banner arriving on 14th April 2017.

    Well, we can see this new focus will be Alm’s group focus, so I am waiting for Celica’s group Focus banner in the future. Maybe in May, near the US release date of the game.

  • Harvey

    I knew that Alm would show up here just for Nintendo to easily market Echoes….I should’ve known better!

    • MetalGear Lamia

      Also its gonna be out in Japan in 8 days.

  • MetalGear Lamia

    No Celica yet…..:( I’m gonna go for Alm but disappointing…

    • Aveyn Knight

      They are probably saving her for the banner immediately after. Don’t forget they need to accommodate Echoes releasing a month later in the West. Meanwhile in Japan, most people will have finished Echoes by then, but the game (and waifus) will be fresh in their minds.

  • MetalGear Lamia

    No Celica yet…..:( I’m gonna go for Alm but disappointing not a fan of Faye at all Claire I’ll try if I don’t get Alm…

    • Diovani Estivalet

      If you noticed, this focus banner have only Alm’s path units and the
      Paralogue is called “World of Shadows”. Probably in a near future we
      will see a Celica’s path units Focus Banner, with a “Return to World of
      Shadows” Paralogue.

      • MetalGear Lamia

        Of course there’s gonna be Celica one also you realize there’s “yet” in my sentence know that’ll come later.

    Man, it’s a bummer Gaiden has no playable axe units, because if there’s anything I’m really in need of, it’s Green-type units. I don’t really have need of more swords (especially) and lances. Bows… maybe. I do want them, but I feel like I’d just be throwing my orbs away.

  • . (Omega)

    Aww, so is the Merging Allies also passing down any extra skills still not added in?

  • O.H. X-1990

    Well, now that I have Spring Camilla and Spring Xander, I guess it’s impossible for me to get the rest of the Spring characters. I might as well save those orbs for Alm and the rest of the characters from Fire Emblem Gaiden/Echoes, probably, maybe.

  • CaT

    I noticed that the link with the text “fire emblem heroes” leads you to FE Echoes, may wish to fix that.

    • Aveyn Knight

      Thanks. Got too much Echoes on the brain right now, haha.

  • Diovani Estivalet

    In Echoes, the Archer class is exclusive to male characters. So… Faye being a archer is strange… She can only be a Cavalier, a Mage, a Pegasus Knight or a Cleric.

  • Maia Kasoya

    Would the Easter banner still be available by the time the Echoes banner goes live?
