Heroes: New Tap Battle! Illusory Dungeon: Formidable Foes

It’s time for another Tap Battle in Fire Emblem Heroes! Stretch your fingers and head to the Events screen to play Illusory Dungeon: Formidable Foes.

Tap Battle events are more of a rhythm game than traditional FE-style gameplay. Make a team of your favourite units and tap the screen in time with the music to defeat waves of enemies. You can play two different modes, Casual or Expert, and also on two different difficulties, Normal and Hard. The rewards are the same, no matter which you choose.

Just like in previous iterations, the first eight stages are available now. More stages will be added each day until you reach Floor 100. Play every day to earn Hero Feathers and Great Badges from daily quests! We’ll also get a second series of quests starting on the 29th.

Illusory Dungeon: Formidable Foes will be available for a bit over two weeks, ending on 12 May.

Don’t forget that Golden Week celebrations will also begin tomorrow! We still don’t know quite what Heroes has in store, but we should find out in about 24 hours at the latest.

Heroes: Bound Hero Battle Revival: Takumi & Hinoka!

If you feel like taking a break from grinding the Tempest Trials+, Heroes has some more quests for you! Check out Bound Hero Battle Revival: Takumi & Hinoka in the Special Maps menu.

This BHB first arrived back in November of last year. If you weren’t around then, or weren’t strong enough to beat all the maps, now is your time to give it a shot! Additionally, there’s a new series of quests available as well. You can earn up to five more Orbs by beating the maps with Anna and Fjorm in certain conditions.

Bound Hero Battle Revival: Takumi & Hinoka will be available for one week, ending on 2 May at 6:59am UTC.

Heroes: Wings of Fate Summoning Focus!

Three new heroes have arrived in Fire Emblem Heroes! Spend some Orbs on the Wings of Fate Summoning Focus for your chance at Kinshi Knight Hinoka, Shigure, and Female Kana. Check out our earlier article for a preview trailer and look at their skills.

These heroes also appear in a new story chapter. Book II, Chapter 8: Blade of Frost continues the plot after the last heartbreaking update. Complete all the maps and the quests to earn up to 20 Orbs! You can find the quest breakdown below.

Additionally, we also get a new Log-In Bonus to celebrate the new heroes! All players will get an extra 13 Orbs just for logging in over the next ten days.

The Wings of Fate Summoning Focus will be around for a little over two weeks, ending on 10 May at 6:59am UTC. According to the most recent event calendar, we’ll be getting another batch of regular new heroes that day as a replacement.

Cipher: Spring 2018 Livestream Date & Eliwood ST Art!

More S13 news will be arriving shortly for Fire Emblem Cipher! Earlier today, the @fecipher twitter account announced the date for the upcoming Spring 2018 Livestream.

The livestream will air on 26 May, a little over a month before S13’s release on 28 June. Ryota Kawade and Young will be our hosts, as usual, with Eri Suzuki returning as a guest. Eri is a rather prolific Japanese voice actress for Fire Emblem, playing the roles of Soleil (Fates), Delthea (Echoes), and even Cipher’s own Ema (Echoes).

As usual for seasonal livestreams, we can expect to see a wide variety of new cards for S13. We’re also hoping for some future Cipher news as well. Most notably, S14 is still completely unknown aside from its “keyword”: 無限 (mugen, the Japanese word for infinity). We may also hear about some upcoming events.

If you’d like to watch along, you can find a link to the stream on the official site. As usual, it will air a 8pm JST, which is 11am UTC.

Additionally, the Cipher twitter earlier this week also revealed some new artwork for Eliwood! This piece of art, drawn by Blazing Sword‘s official artist Sachiko Wada, will be featured in S13’s associated ST Deck. This deck, the first one released since S9 last year, will feature cards and characters from FE7. Likely, Eliwood will be the starring lord.

With this information, likely we’ll start getting daily reveals the week of, or the week before, the stream. We may also continue to get additional tidbits here and there, like Eliwood’s art, before then. Stay tuned for further details!
