Three Houses: Version 1.0.2 (Maddening Difficulty) and Wave 2 DLC (New Outfits, Items and Battles) Now Available!

Ready to add a lot more hours in Three Houses? From today, all players can download the free version 1.0.2 update. This includes the previously teased higher difficulty level, a few additional features and various bug changes.

 

With this update, expansion pass owners can access the Wave 2 contents. Look forward to new glasses for the protagonist, house loungewear for your students, new stat-boosting items and auxiliary battles (including a new “Corridor of the Tempest” music track).

Furthermore, looking at the expansion pass’s updated eShop listing, it seems there will be at least two more sets of costumes, which will presumably be added in Wave 3 (alongside the additional quests).

Heroes: Tempest Trials+ now live!

Today we see the beginning of a new Tempest Trials+: Till Song’s End, and with it comes our second free magic dancer!

You can pick up the usual rewards of Orbs, Feathers, Sacred Coins, etc. alongside Rinea: Reminiscent Belle (a blue tome refresher) and two new Sacred Seals: Def/Res Bond and Atk Feint.

The event will begin today and will last until the 20th of September, 6:59am UTC.

Yesterday we also saw the revival of the Panne Grand Hero Battle.

You can complete the accompanying quests to unlock a free copy of Panne alon with four Orbs. Players who have yet to challenge the GHB can also earn themselves the initial three copies by defeating each difficulty for the first time. The GHB Revival will come to a close on the 15th of September, 6:59am UTC.

Heroes: Múspell Grand Conquests, Weekly Revival 14 & Performing Arts Re-run

We have a fairly eventful Sunday in Fire Emblem Heroes, as a new Grand Conquests event kicks off. Having conquered all the currently known continents, our attention moves towards the realm of Múspell, which we visited back in Book II.

The three armies are all led by Múspell’s finest generals: sisters Laevatein and Laegjarn and rough but kind Helbindi. Presumably Surtr is watching menacingly from afar.

Curiously, the map is exactly as the same as the southern half of the World not continent of Zenith (where Embla is apparently located). However, the notification and Twitter accounts emphasise that this is indeed the kingdom of flames.

If so, are Nifl and Múspell an(other) alternate version of Askr and Embla? Your guess is as good as mine.

In other news, the 14th weekly summoning revival is up. This one features Linde, Saber and Sonya–all fairly strong Heroes with powerful weapon refines. Also, the Performing Arts re-run started yesterday. For a month, you can try to summon special dancer versions of Inigo, Olivia, Azura and Shigure from 2017.

Heroes: “Life of Heroes” Character Comics & Special Artwork

During late August, a physical version of the official Fire Emblem Heroes “Life of Heroes” comic was released in Japan. It included 83 of the currently released chapters, as well as some brand new character-specific illustrations and comics.

If you’re interested, you can check out these extras on Kirokan‘s website–as well as translations of all the chapters released thus far.

By the way, if you’re wondering why the name of the comic keeps changing… “Life of Heroes” is the official spelling according to the physical version of the comic itself. The other names are simply fan interpretations of the Japanese title.

Also, you may have noticed that the character illustrations all use the official English spellings, despite some of the characters having different names in Japanese (like Sharon versus Sharena). Yet they used the Japanese name (Eclat) for Kiran…
