Heroes: Tempest Trials+: A Promise of Joy

The deadly summer storms have returned to Fire Emblem Heroes! Build up a strong team of allies from Múspell to tackle Tempest Trials+: A Promise of Joy.

As usual, Loki is once again an instigator of mischief. This time her sight’s set on Helbindi…

This month’s summer-themed Tempest Trials features our latest swimsuit units from the Summer Returns banner. You can also use the non-summer versions of Laevatein, Laegjarn, and Helbindi. The final map takes place on a twilit beach and features Summer Helbindi as the boss. Check out the bonus allies, map layout, and boss stats below.

As usual, you can earn a wide variety of prizes in this event, including lots of Orbs! This event’s special unit is Ylgr: Breaking the Ice. Other rewards also include three Sacred Seals: Armored Blow 1, Spur Atk/Spd 1, and Atk/Res Bond 1. Additionally, don’t forget to complete your daily missions!

Tempest Trials+: A Promise of Joy will be blowing in the winds for ten days, quieting down on 4 July.

Heroes: Summer’s Arrival & Weekly Revival 3 Banners!

Another Sunday brings two more banners for Fire Emblem Heroes summoners! First up is the Summer’s Arrival revival banner with last year’s Summer versions of Innes, Tana, Noire, and Cordelia. The Weekly Revival 3 banner also brings some good units, with Julia, Nephenee, and Sigurd as the focus.

As a reminder, the Weekly Revival 3 banner is part of a special series of upcoming banners. These older focus heroes appear a raised 4% rate, making them more likely to pull than other 5★ characters of the same colour. Next week’s banner will feature Lyn, Hector, and Brave Lyn. You can see the full calendar in the Notifications screen.

As the name implies, the Weekly Revival banner will last for exactly one week. Summer’s Arrival, on the other hand, will he here for a full month, ending on 23 July.

Heroes: Bound Hero Battle Revival: Ike & Soren!

Another BHB has returned to Fire Emblem Heroes! You can challenge Bound Hero Battle Revival: Ike & Soren in the Special Maps menu.

If you couldn’t beat all of the maps before, now is the perfect time to try again. Additionally, new players and veterans alike can earn more Orbs in new quests! Use Sharena, Alfonse, and Armored units in battle to earn 5 more Orbs! Check out full details in game.

Bound Hero Battle Revival: Ike & Soren will be around for about a week, ending on 29 June.

Additionally, Heroes will be having a bit of maintenance soon. On 28 June, the game will go down for about an hour and a half, starting at 4:00am UTC. For those in the US, it will fall late night on the 27th. Make sure to plan accordingly!

Cipher S17 Weekly Recap: Final Week of Card Reveals + Promos & Livestream Reminder!

There have been so many cool Cipher cards revealed this week, it’s hard to know where to begin! Four of the five daily reveals feature SR cards, with the two more recent also showing off some sweet cameos. Sigurd‘s SR features Quan and Eldigan, while other female manaketes appear in Tiki‘s SR.

Zephiel and Takumi also get two SRs this week! You can check them out below with their unpromoted cards. Zephiel’s cost 1 card is a rather emotional piece, showing events around the time his father tried to kill him. His SR also fits into the large joined-art that started last set!

Last but not least, Eliwood rounds out the set with a gorgeous N and R card combo, both by Sachiko Wada.

@fecipher also showed off nice, large images of two new promos featuring Three Houses characters Byleth and Edelgard! You can get these copies in the latest issues of Dengeki Nintendo and Nintendo Dream, respectively. Each issues comes with two copies of the matching card! They release today, 21 June, in Japan.

Finally, don’t forget that tomorrow is the S17 Pre-Release Livestream! Nozomi Sasaki (VA for Oboro and Felicia) is joining as a guest. Ryota Kawade and Young will be our hosts as usual. This stream is also the 4th Anniversary of Fire Emblem Cipher! It airs tomorrow at 8:00pm JST (11:00am UTC).

We should get to see many more remaining cards for S17, including signed cards, alternate cards, tournie promos, and more! We’ll also likely see some art for upcoming sets. The anniversary celebration may also bring some surprises. If you’d like to watch along, you can get links for NicoNico or YouTube streams here on the official site.
