Heroes: Special “Bridal Belonging” Heroes Revealed, Coming May 21 at 12a PT

It may have been teased just yesterday, but we sure didn’t have to wait long for the full reveal of the upcoming bridal-season units for 2019. This year brings us our third batch of bridal darlings, and surprisingly, we have a few new faces!

Yes, new faces Tanith and Sigrun, from the Tellius series (Path of Radiance / Radiant Dawn), and Pent, from Elibe (Fire Emblem), join Fjorm‘s alt in the cast of the summonable quartet. With these new units, there are several new skills hitting the fray, including Fjorm’s Ground Orders 3, Tanith’s Harsh Command+, and Pent’s Pulse Smoke 3. Additionally, Fjorm’s weapon possibly introduces a new mechanic of skill simplification, with the [Isolation] ability.

For those familiar with Clarine and Klein already in the game (or from Fire Emblem: Binding Blade) Pent is their father, and his wife, Louise: Eternal Devotion (a Colorless Bow Cavalry), joins him as a Tempest Trials+ reward unit. They’re noted as being a pretty influential duo in their own game, as well as one of the only units that come with a pre-defined support rank, in the entire Fire Emblem franchise.

This batch of heroes will be available for summon on May 21 at 12a PT, and of course, they’ll come with a set of paralogue chapters that provide Summoners with precious Orbs with which to summon them with (or save, of course). They’ll be available for 30 days, so don’t fret if you can’t get them immediately.

Heroes: Ephraim & Myrrh Bound Hero Battle Revival!

Eirika takes a back seat while Myrrh’s around Ephraim. It’s a Bound Hero Battle Revival: Ephraim & Myrrh!

Ephraim: Restoration Lord and Myrrh: Great Dragon are the main opponents within this challenge. Rewards are 2 x Orbs for beating Hard, 3 x Orbs for Lunatic, and 4 x Orbs for Infernal. Since this is a revival, if you’ve already beaten them before, you can’t earn these rewards again. However, there are new BHB quests for everyone to complete, and doing so will net you up to 5 Orbs.

The BHB begins today and will run until the 25th of April, 6:59am UTC.

Since it’s Thursday, a new Tactics Drills map has been added: “Feline Perimeters” under Skill Studies. Lethe and Ranulf fight together against a hoard of enemies. Make use of their skills and find a way through all the enemies in 5 phases. The reward for completion is 300 Feathers.

Echoes: Drama CD “Foreign Skies; Daybreak Forest” Announced

A year after the game’s release, a new drama CD for Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, dubbed “Foreign Skies; Daybreak Forest”, will be released in Japan on 17th August 2018.

Fire Emblem isn’t new when it comes to drama CDs, with Awakening and Fates receiving a bunch of them. For those unsure, drama CDs are basically audio CDs and they usually feature side stories.

Here’s the translated description from the drama CD’s official site.

Valentia Year 401

Chancellor Desaix has been defeated and Zofia Castle has been reclaimed.

The Deliverance led by Alm crushed General Berkut at Rigel’s borders and has started to advance into the Rigelian Empire.

As the march into enemy territory is progressing smoothly, trouble breaks out within the Kingdom of Zofia.

Clive, a key member of the Deliverance, sorties a part of the Deliverance to resolve the situation.

During the march, Alm discovers a village that has been converted into an imperial base, and prompted by Lukas, must make a terrible decision whether to burn down the village—

As soon as Alm entered the empire, somebody was waiting for him to step foot in Rigel Forest…

Authored by the development staff, an original story encompassing a whopping 90 minutes! Alm’s inner conflict, Lukas’s anger, Forsyth’s anguish, Python’s chivalry, and Faye and Silque’s girl talk!? This is an original drama CD that occurs during Act 4, when the Deliverance spend several days in Rigel Forest.

The bonus track “The Voice Calling for You” is a vocal track included for the first time! This previously unheard song that tells another ending will soon come to light…!
