We’re coming to another month soon, which means another version update for Fire Emblem Heroes! Version 5.3.0 is expected to arrive on 3rd March 2021, at 11 pm (UTC).
Without further ado, here’s the list of changes…
Addition of Divine Codes (Part 2)
A new series of standard (yellow paper) Divine Codes will be added: Divine Codes (Part 2). After the update (and each new season begins), all rewards that gave Divine Codes (Part 1) will give the new ones instead.
Divine Codes (Part 2) can be used to compile Heroes from the newly-added “Normal 2” category, which also includes Heroes from Three Houses (among many others).
Note that you can continue to use Divine Codes (Part 1) to compile the original set of “Normal 1” Heroes. On top of that, if you don’t have enough Divine Codes (Part 1), you can pay the remainder using Divine Codes (Part 2).
“Target Score” will be added. There are 5 levels of Target Score; the first time your high score surpasses a Target Score, you’ll receive a bonus to your Cumulative Score.
The stage select screen will also be updated to display your cumulative score, next cumulative score reward, high score and the next Target Score along the top.
Once the event is over, the winning Hero will be gifted to all players, regardless of their team choice. Also, there will be a summoning event featuring the top 4 winners (along with a guaranteed pick after 40 summons) during the 2nd half of March 2021.
Over the years, the Fire Emblem series has produced some amazing music–and it seems Nintendo is quite proud of this, because they’ve uploaded a music compilation on YouTube highlighting some of the greats.
The video features 43 tracks that appear in Fire Emblem Heroes, for a run time of 105 minutes. There’s a song from every mainline game, although Shadow Dragon (NES and DS versions) and Gaiden have been assimilated into their sequels/remakes.
Sorry for the Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE or Fire Emblem Warriors fans.
There are also timestamps in the description for each individual track, if you’re looking for something specific. Of note, this appears to be the first time we’ve seen official names for some of these songs. Such as “Howling Gears” for the Book V map theme.
February’s Legendary Hero has been revealed as Claude: King of Unification! At long last, the heir to the Leicester Alliance ascends to Legendary status alongside his former classmates, Edelgard and Dimitri.
Claude’s Legendary banner will be available from 26th February until the daily rollover on 5th March 2021 (UTC). The following Heroes will also be on rate-up:
Red: Hrid, Altina and Legendary Seliph
Blue: Legendary Tiki, Naga and Melady
Green: Annette, Hel and Triandra
Colorless: Legendary Leif and Mila
For a text breakdown of his abilities, please continue to the end of this post.
Additionally, we have details for the Resplendent Hero available after Tana, who’s now up for grabs for FEH Pass subscribers. Why, it’s another winged princess!
You’re looking at the dokkalfar version of Elincia: Lost Princess. She’ll be added on 10th March 2021 (UTC). For more artwork and voice samples, we’ll direct you to her official webpage.
