Feh first mentioned the event herself during the July Feh Channel. To start off with, every day from now through 16 August will feature a special Daily Summoning Event. Each of these banners is a rerun of skill-based banner from the previous year.

Today’s banner is Heroes with Weapons to Refine, Part 2, containing 5★ focus units for Eldigan, Minerva, and Jaffar. Scroll down below for the full list of banners and when they’ll appear.

Furthermore, we also get to start a new series of Daily Reward Maps today as well! Each map contains a Normal and a Hard version, and you can earn one Orb for completing each. We’ll get another new map every day through 11 August.

If that’s not enough yet, this event also contains Feh’s Summer Celebration Quests! Defeat enemies with specific types of heroes to earn another 20 Orbs! Check out further details of the quests down below. Do note that these are tiered quests, so you’ll have to complete the Normal difficulty quests before moving onto Hard, and eventually Lunatic.

Finally, we also get Double EXP and SP every day from now through 16 August. The last part of the celebration will also be starting up in a couple weeks, a special edition of Tempest Trials+ that will start up on 14 August.

Three Houses: E3 2018 Trailer Analysis

After a year and a half of waiting, Nintendo finally removed the curtains from their Switch Fire Emblem title, now officially known as Fire Emblem: Three Houses, during their E3 2018 Nintendo Direct

It’s been almost that long since I last dusted off my magnifying glass, so without further ado, here’s my analysis of the reveal trailer plus other promotional materials!

First things first, over in Japan, the game is instead known as Fire Emblem Fūkasetsugetsu, which can be read as Fire Emblem Four Seasons, but it means a whole lot more than that.

The subtitle is poetic and evokes the wonders of the four seasons: the winds of Summer, flowers of Spring, snows of Winter and the moon of Autumn. It also has romantic allusions and can refer to a love affair.
