Heroes: Old Grand Hero Battles Return + New Special Missions!

@FE_Heroes_JP tweeted out an interesting announcement earlier today, leading to some speculation among Fire Emblem Heroes players…

As translated by VincentASM, the tweet fully states the following:

[Notice] From Monday 24th April at 16:00, the Grand Hero Battles “Robin – Mystery Tactician” and “Navarre – Scarlet Sword” make a reappearance! At the same time, there will be timed special missions where you can befriend Grand Hero(es)! Please try to challenge the Grand Hero Battles even if you’ve already cleared them previously.

The first part of the tweet is pretty straightforward: Grand Hero Battles for both Female Robin and Navarre will be available once again! If you missed getting one or both versions of these heroes, now is a great time to snag them up.

The second part of the tweet is where things get interesting. “Timed special missions” definitely implies that there will be some new content with this update. The last sentence also implies that these missions will be connected to the reappearing Grand Hero Battles in some way. However, no further details are as yet available.

Regardless, we won’t have to wait all too long for the mystery to be revealed. The update will go live during the very next game update at 7:59am UTC tomorrow!

    Alright, neat. I failed to beat the harder difficulty of the Robin-F GHB when that happened. I was not ready to tackle it, and its setup where every space in enemy attack range meant getting attacked by at least 3 enemy units (unless you could KO the right ones), each of different colour. Not fun. I lost someone on the second or third turn every time. Got much better units now, though, so I should be able to do this. I also missed Ursula entirely, so I hope that GHB will get a re-run in the near future as well. And indeed very curious what the rest means as well.

      Both Defend Maps and Reinforcement Battles were scheduled to be part of the April updates and push back to later in the month. Although the Tweet doesn’t specifically reference this, the “timed special missions” may actually refer to that. Hopefully we’ll find out soon!

    This is pretty something. This may give me a chance to get a 3-star robin this time. Though with Navarre, I’m happy. I only hope we get another shot at getting Michalis.

    A new chance to defeat Lunatic Female Robin. I will see some images of the map to make a strategy. Ignis is a great special, and if I have another F Robin, I can give Ignis to another unit.

    okay in how many hours the fight happen? different time zone that america.

    From what I can interpret this as, we will be receiving temporary quests that give us grand heroes as rewards, in addition to the reappearing maps.

    Oh great, Female Robin and Navarre are returning, and I still can’t beat them, especially Female Robin on Hard mode! Why are my team so weak as hell?! WHY?!

    Nice. Been wanting to get more Female Robins. Far as I can tell, she’s the ONLY unit in the game with Blue Tomebreaker, and Reinhardt has been a problem for me in Arena.
