Heroes: Details for July-bound Version 4.7.0 Update & Upcoming Father-Complex Voting Gauntlet

With July just around the corner, Feh has shared details of the next version update (4.7.0), which is scheduled for 6th July (UTC).

Firstly, the following Heroes will receive new weapons skills and/or refines:

  • Berkut: Dark Royal Spear (+refine)
  • Sheena: Crimson Axe (+refine)
  • Female Corrin: Gloom Breath (+refine)
  • Fallen Celica: Beloved Zofia refine

Next, starting from Version 4.7.0, Summoners will receive Divine Codes (Ephemera 7) from events. These can be exchanged for the following combat manuals:

  • 5-star Summer Leo and Summer Linde
  • 4-star Roy, Silas, Odin, Echidna and Legault

For the more minor additions, please skip to the end of this article!

In case you missed it, an “interesting” Voting Gauntlet will begin on 1st July (UTC). “Father-Complex Fray” features Heroes who have awkward relationships with their fathers. We couldn’t make this up!

The initial brackets are: Altena vs Michalis, Alfonse vs Xander, Mareeta vs Lloyd and Ross vs Annette.

Michalis, Xander and Lloyd can be summoned using Heroic Grails and everybody should have an Alfonse on the bench. As for the rest (Ross, Altena, Annette and Mareeta), there’s a Voting Gauntlet banner featuring them.

New Vestaria Saga Side-story “Norden Civil War” Currently In Production

Recently, S_Kaga unveiled a prototype for a new Vestaria Saga side-story on his blog. Known as Vestaria Saga Gaiden: Norden Civil War, it focuses on the conflict within the Kingdom of Norden and occurs around the same time as another side-story, Holy Sword of Silvanister.

(Many thanks to MovesetMaker for sharing this info via Reddit. Screenshots belong to S_Kaga and Vestaria Project.)

For reference, Norden Civil War is actually the 3rd side-story in the Vestaria Saga series. A full sequel “Vestaria Saga II” is also in the works, although it’ll be longer before it comes into fruition. The original Vestaria Saga was released back in 2016 and officially localised during 2019.

Unlike the other games in the series, Norden Civil War is not a traditional Strategy RPG, like the Fire Emblem games. Instead, it’s a territorial-based strategy game, similar to “Nobunaga’s Ambition”. The reason for the genre change is because S_Kaga wants to try something fresh–and because he can.

Players will be able to control up to 40 characters, each with multiple squads attached to them. The game will apparently feature a fairly realistic depiction of war, as 7 tribal nations vie for control of Norden. There isn’t a singular protagonist and the story will be quite broad, similar to TearRing Saga.

Heroes: “Summer Two-Piece” Tempest Trials Coming Soon & Mythic Arena Bug Addressed!

Following the surprise Feh Channel and the first Summer Heroes trailer, FE Heroes has shared more detailed about the next Tempest Trials+ event.

“Summer Two-Piece” will be active between the daily rollovers on 19th and 29th June 2020 (UTC). The top prizes include copies of Rhys: Gentle Basker (pictured), the Sorcery Blade 1 and Brazen Spd/Res 1 Sacred Seals, plus 50 lots of Divine Code (Ephemera 6).

The Heroes that can boost your score (and obtain more EXP/SP) are the new Summer versions of Mia (and Masked Marth), Selena, Lute, Joshua and Rhys, plus the regular versions of Mia, Lute and (for absolutely no reason, nuh-uh) Lucina.

The first row of Heroes can be summoned via the “Summer Passing” banner, which arrives on 18th June. Rhys is obviously the freebie, while the remaining three are featured on a Tempest Trials banner, which is around for the same period as the event.

Also, the “Mythic Bug”, relating to Arena and Arena Assault scoring has finally been fixed. Previously, if a team included an in-season Legendary Hero, but an off-season Mythic Hero, players could encounter teams with higher scores than intended, but still obtain a lower score after winning (via Twitter).

Heroes: Feh Channel June 2020 Swoops in With Summer News!

The day is full of surprises–first we had the Summer trailer revealed too early, then Feh suddenly decided to drop another unannounced Feh Channel!

This one is short, but sweet, focusing on three topics: the upcoming Summer Heroes, the new Resonant Battles game mode and a new feature for Aether Raids.

Summer Heroes

There’s already a trailer for them, but here’s another look at the Special Heroes that will feature in the “Summer Passing” banner, scheduled for 18th June.

Mia and Marth form a new type of Duo Hero, called a “Harmonized Hero”. These are Heroes that co-operate from completely different worlds. They also have a Harmonized Skill that benefits Heroes from the games they’re from. Read more
