You can never have enough Orbs in Fire Emblem Heroes and Nintendo knows this as they’re adding even more ways for players to earn free Orbs!
Whether you’re a new player or one who’s been playing for ages, you’re sure to benefit from the new Starter Support campaign, which lasts from now until 3rd April 2017 (at 7:59 AM UTC).
Firstly, replacing the previous App-release Log-in Bonus is a Special Log-in Bonus, which grants 2 Orbs per day like previously. By our calculations, you can pick up this Log-in Bonus up to 17 times for 34 Orbs!
Secondly, there will be two Starter Support bonus maps added to the Special Maps section–one today and another from the 20th (in three days time). These maps award 3 Orbs each and have two difficulties, so you can get 12 Orbs at most.
Earlier, Fire Emblem Echoes information from the 30th March 2017 issue of Famitsu started leaking. Now that the issue is officially in the wild, it’s time for us to bring out the magnifying glass once again! (Whoa, twice in one day.)
Note: A big thanks to Famigeki for the Famitsu images.
As we mentioned in our report of the Japanese official website, some of the information is the same between Famitsu and the official website. Which isn’t a surprise since some people don’t read one or the other. As such, we’ll only cover what’s new.
The most notable addition, briefly detailed on the 2nd page, is Mila’s Gear, a valuable contraption that can peer into the past and the future. With Mila’s Gear in your possession, you can rewind the actions of units one unit at a time.
In the example, Mae got KO’d by a Mercenary on Turn 1. From the looks of things, you can rewind back to before the Mercenary attacked and try again. However, the author mentions that there are limits and it can’t be easily abused.
Ahead of its release in just over a month’s time (in Japan), Nintendo has upgraded the Japanese website for Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia with lots of new information.
Some of this information is also covered in this week’s Famitsu, which we’re still waiting to officially come out. Although oddly the website hasn’t bothered explaining the Mila’s Gear feature at all.
The first section of the website discusses what Echoes is all about–which we all know already. More importantly, it has a couple of interesting comparison screenshots between the original Gaiden and its remake Echoes.
Thanks to the efforts of many, the second Global Retweet event was a success! Between the Japanese, North American and Europe accounts, fans managed beat the 50,000 requirement by a fair margin. Look forward to your 5 Orbs in-game!
Already, Nintendo are teasing the next Grand Hero Battle, which offers a chance to recruit Macedon’s ambitious King Michalis. There’s plenty of time to prepare your troops as Michalis spreads his wings from 24th March 2017.
If that wasn’t enough, four more upcoming Grand Hero Battles have also been revealed:
- Early April – Navarre: Scarlet Sword
- Late April – Zephiel: The Liberator
- Early May – Xander: Paragon Knight
- Late May – Lloyd: White Wolf
Additionally, if you’ve seen today’s in-game Notifications or you’ve been following the official Japanese Twitter account, you’ll know that some big changes are coming April. For your convenience, here they are again:
