Heroes: FEH Channel Book III Edition. New Units, New Foes, New Free 5-Star, News on Laguz and more!

Good day, Summoners! If you’ve been paying attention to news as of late, you may remember that we just had a FEH Channel roughly one month ago near the conclusion of Book II’s story, detailing the quite popular Aether Raids. We’ve nearly earned a double-header, as we’re now being hit with a ten minute long FEH Channel: Book III Edition, showcasing the up-and-coming Heroes, and Villains, yet to be seen by our Askran empire.

As always, we’re greeted by Feh, gently swooping in before perchi-

Alfonse, Sharena, Loki and Veronica are all spotted in a forest, engaged in intense combat, with an extremely ominous setting, and four unusual characters of varying intimidation levels. Heavy metal music can be heard, being very atypical of the franchise, and the death of someone that I sure wasn’t expecting. Catch the full unsettling movie here.

Enjoy another brilliant piece by artist Yusuke Kozaki (the Full can be seen here)

Ahem…as I was saying, Feh swoops in, perching herself on her usual post, to introduce us to the characters, setting and other features coming in with Book III. Where one might have thought we’d be surrounded entirely by villains, that may not be the case…

Book III takes place in a spooky new location, the realm of the dead. We’re given immediate access (after the incoming maintenance, of course). In addition, we’ll also be given access to quite a few new things in this new story. Eir: Merciful Death, is introduced to us as a Princess of the Realm of the Dead. We’re also shown the Realm of the Dead’s ruler, Hel: Death SovereignLif: Lethal Swordsman and Thrasir: Omnicidal Witch, are introduced next, as generals of the Realm of the Dead.

We’ll be receiving four new “Seasons” in addition to our Fire/Water/Wind/Earth. Mythic Heroes will join the fray, and along with it, the Light, Dark, Astra and Anima seasons. Eir will be our very first Mythic Hero, coming to us as Light. These will be utilized in Aether Raids, but not sure how quite yet…

A new banner will also drop post-update, containing Owain, Lewyn, Ophelia and the Colorless Mythic Hero of Light, Eir.

First Summon Tickets will also be distributed, as an equivalent exchange for an additional free 5-orb summon. It will be exactly as if you were attempting your first free summon attempt for a banner, and First Summon Tickets cannot be saved  for a long period of time. 2019 will share First Summon Tickets with its Forging Bonds.

 

Speaking of Forging Bonds, we’ll be seeing a Radiant Dawn themed Forging Bonds event, which will be introducing our very first traditional Laguz unit, Tibarn, likely among others. If you’re unfamiliar, Laguz units were introduced as a mainstay in Fire Emblem Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn, and were a variety of animals that could transform into Beorc (Humans) and back. They’ve been a huge fan request, so it’s exciting to finally see them joining the ranks!

I’ll keep it on the hush, but Nailah can be seen if you look very closely…

Lastly, Eir will join as a free 5* hero, at the end of Book III Chapter 1. Enjoy your free flier!

  • Oh look, even more OCs. What a surprise. スラシル is the only one who looks mildly interesting to me, but even that’s a stretch.

    To be frank, this was extremely underwhelming. Seems like these mythical’s gonna powercreep the legendaries as well. Doesn’t bode well. Inclusion of Laguz is kinda cool, but that three range on a flier of Tibarn’s strength is disgusting.

    Compared to the 2.0 update, 3.0 is very underwhelming. Yeah, the new beast units are going to be cool and were much anticipated, but 2.0 felt like a new era for FEH with its rebalancing of staves, daggers, and weapon refinery. What has 3.0 done to distinguish it from 2.0, I don’t see anything changing between pre and post 3.0. This should be very concerning since the month of Nov, FEH only made 66% of their monthly average.

    But who knows, maybe there’s gonna be some undiscussed changes along side 3.0 that’ll change my opinion of things, but as things are now…I don’t see myself making it past the the 2nd anniversary unless some severe fixes are implemented by then.

      It’s always fun to see the fanbase happy as usual.

      • mrkisukes

        Well, the one other way they could make up for this situation is if they made the next Tap Battle nothing but that death metal music from the Book III OP. That would make my day.

        • Elieson

          With Aether Raids bouncing in just one month ago, I’d practically consider November’s AE release to be a sort of ‘first round/beta’ release of it, with 3.0 being the “Full” Aether Raid version

    • basically the same boat here.

    • Fallen Crow

      This game is greedy, so I wouldn’t expect much more to be done. Drop the game and your life will be enhanced 😀

      • Daniel Smith

        I loved this game… but lately It’s been boring me…

        I’m wondering if the fun has run out… and if I must fade away…

        • Fallen Crow

          I deleted the game months ago. There really isn’t much substance to it and I don’t find myself wanting to play it (would rather play a series game). The only reason I know about these updates is because serenes is my news site

  • Kneekicker

    I’m pretty excited that Laguz are finally making it into the game, and it’s nice that Tibarn and Nailah will be the first to be introduced. Here’s hoping Ranulf and Lethe aren’t that far behind now.

    The only complaint I have with this announcement is that Kozaki is drawing Book III: I don’t dislike Kozaki, but I was pretty excited back when it was revealed Book II’s characters would be drawn by Maeshima since I was under the impression each new Book would have a different artist in charge.

    • 3-13 Archer

      Yeah, I was expecting Ranulf, Lethe and Mordecai to be the firsts too. I mean, we’re starting with the most broken ones!
      The artist should’ve been either Senri Kita or Sachiko Wada. You can never go wrong with those two, and they haven’t design any OC yet.

  • 3-13 Archer

    One question: doesn’t Hel appear in Thracia, in the Hell spell animation? I thought she would be part of the canon as a being you can make a contract with, like Medusa. But we’re going to beat her butt…

  • Reuska

    As long as they feed me with Alfonse content, I’m staying n_n They could finally give us a way to plus him and the other Askran units, though.
