Heroes: Michalis Great Hero Battle is Back!

The next Great Hero Battle has arrived! All Fire Emblem Heroes players can now battle to earn a 3★ or 4★ version of Michalis: Ambitious King. Like Ursula, players will have to complete a difficult Lunatic Difficulty map for the 4★ version.

Earlier this week, the Michalis battle was available for a short period of time as part of a special event. This time around, it will stay open until March 28th, the standard amount of time for a Great Hero Battle. Players who already completed either map during the event will not be able to get Michalis from those same maps again.

Additionally, a new Summoning Focus is now available, with units specifically chosen to aid in the battle against Michalis. Using the new Focus, players can hope to roll 5★ versions of Eliwood, Gordin, Severa, or Minerva. This new focus will also expire on March 28th.

 

Cipher Series 8 Set Release!

On Thursday, March 16th, Series 8 of Fire Emblem Cipher was released to the public! A welcome blend of old game and new, the set focuses on characters from both Awakening and the second generation of Genealogy of the Holy War.

Awakening

For once, Chrom gets to be the star of Awakening, earning himself a top-billed slot and two SR cards. His first SR is a gorgeous shot of him ascending to the position of Exalt as illustrated by Kotaro Yamada.

His other SR is quite a bit darker, showing how Chrom might be in an alternate world where he and Robin fail in their plans to defeat Grima. This Chrom, dubbed the Undead King of Despair, wears a smug expression and wields a corrupted Falchion as he rules over a ruined city.

Heroes: New Rewards for the Early Michalis Event!

The early bird Michalis Grand Hero Battle in Fire Emblem Heroes was a grand success! Despite only being natively advertised in Japanese versions of the game, there was a very large turnout. 54,666 people completed either version of the map, and 13,415 even cleared Lunatic mode!

Since we managed to smash all goal milestones, we have also earned full rewards. As such, players can look forward to receiving 10 Orbs, 10 Stamina Potions and 5,000 Hero Feathers sometime in the next few days.

If you missed the event, Michalis will be back this Friday at the usual time. If you need some help, feel free to visit our Heroes forum to discuss strategy. The accompanying Focus Banner that leaked last week will also arrive then if you could use an extra boost for your team. Good luck to all players!
