Heroes: Incoming Berkut and New Arena Bonus Units

FE_HeroesJP just tweeted out confirmation on the next Grand Hero Battle for Berkut, which will begin starting tomorrow, July 18, and presumably running for about a week as is the standard we’ve been seeing for GHBs. This map will feature Berkut and his allies, fighting your team. What’s to note is the atypical unit placement for your allies, making first turn buffing a bit of a challenge.

Berkut himself is armed with the A skill Water Boost 3 and his personal Lance, both of which grant situational bonuses to the Resistance stat.

Water Boost 3: If unit has at least 3 more HP than enemy at the start of combat, unit receives Res+6 during combat.

Berkut’s Lance: 14 MT, 1 Rng, Grants Res+4 when the unit is under attack.

He’ll also boast the Ward Cavalry C skill (as currently seen on Eliwood) which grants Def/Res+4 to Cavalry combat stats within two spaces similar to Spur skills, and also possesses the Special skill Blazing Flame, (as currently seen on Jeorge), which hits two tiles to the left and right of the target for 1.5x (unit’s Atk minus foe’s Def or Res). Lastly, there will be an Infernal difficulty available, likely matching the previous Infernal challenges, offering a 4-star reward with a Hero Feather bonus.

Additionally, the new Arena season bonus units are announced. We’ll see the six units from the recent banners (Delthea, Mathilda, Gray, Saber, Sonya and Leon), as well as Grand Hero Battle unit Clarisse, VirionCecilia and Askrian Sharena.

Heroes Brings Ylissean Summer Banner with v.1.5 Update

Fire Emblem Heroes released its changelog for their version 1.5 update, which will include quite a few quality of life updates (Double SP Weekends, among other benefits), as well as some new play modes. Summoners can look forward to an improved Tempest Trials experience, and take part in the new Chain Challenge and Squad Assault story maps, each with their own neat twists.

Additionally, just hours before the official release of the much anticipated summer-themed banner, Nintendo released the video debuting the Ylissean Summer event, bringing in a new banner as well as a new paralogue series. Click here for the Japanese video.

Don’t pay too much heed to the incredible Frederick impersonation performed by Gaius during his debut

With the Ylissean Summer banner lasting throughout the entirety of July (June 30 until August 1), you have plenty of time to either save up some orbs, or spend them in hopes of recruiting the axe-swinging Tiki, the dagger-flinging Frederick, the harpooness Robin (F) and the bow-wielding Gaius, along with their unique weapons and slew of special skills not yet made available.

Fire Emblem Warriors: Two New amiibo!

Today, during Nintendo Treehouse’s coverage of Fire Emblem Warriors at E3, we not only got to see about 10 minutes of gameplay, but were also introduced to two new supported amiibo for the game!

 

Chrom and young Tiki will be joining the amiibo lineup, most likely being released with the game itself.

Additionally, while there was a lot of discussion brought up during the gameplay, some dialogue from Nintendo did make some statements addressing the high volume of sword users and limited characters being available, stating that it will not be something to worry about.

Finally, some pre-orders are up for Fire Emblem Warriors. Click here for the New 3DS version, and here for the Switch version.
