Warriors: A Sneak Peak at the Dragonstone Crystal

After Fire Emblem Warriors appeared at E3, Nintendo and Koei Tecmo announced a couple of special editions for Japan–one of which, the “Treasure Box”, includes a replica dragonstone crystal.

Today, the official Japanese Twitter account was kind enough to show an in-production image of the dragonstone itself. Presumably, colour has yet to be added; even still it looks very impressive.

Not shown is the display stand for the crystal, which can playback voices of various heroes. Assuming the stand is indeed an alarm clock, it would be pretty amazing to have likes of Marth and Tiki wake you up in the morning.

Cipher S9 Weekly Recap: Daily Reveals & Pre-Release Livestream Reminder

We’re now less than a week away from the Series 9 release of Fire Emblem Cipher! @FECipher has kept up the excitement with another week of reveals, culminating in our very first signed card: Clair SR+ from Fire Emblem Echoes! The signature on the card is from her Japanese voice actress, Aya Endo. She also gets a matching N card.

Another SR card was also revealed earlier this week, this time featuring Zephiel, the main antagonist of Binding Blade. His N card shows a young Zephiel celebrating happier times with his sister Guinivere. It’s a stark comparison to his more violent SR card, which is also the third and final Purple SR of the set.

The remaining reveals for this week are all R foil cards. Delthea from Echoes is featured casting the powerful Ragnarok spell. Two Laguz royals from Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn also get some visually stunning cards: Dheginsea and Caineghis. Caineghis’s whopping 100 Attack is currently the highest in the game.

Heroes: Legion’s Grand Hero Battle is Live, Includes New Infernal Difficulty Mode

Legion’s Grand Hero Battle is now available to challenge in Fire Emblem Heroes! Defeat his maps to earn yourself Legion: Masked Maniac, a villain from New Mystery of the Emblem.

Unlike previous GHBs, Legion does not have an associated summon focus banner.  He does, however, come with something new: a third challenge available at Infernal difficulty. Defeat Legion’s map in this fiendishly difficult mode to earn yourself an additional 4★ copy of Legion as well as 2,000 Hero Feathers! All battles also feature enemy reinforcements.

Legion’s Grand Hero Battle will be available until 22 June at 6:59am UTC. Good luck with the difficult battles awaiting you!

UPDATE: The @FE_Heroes_JP official twitter has posted a bug notification. The two tiles behind the back wall, marked in the map in red, are actually defensive tiles, despite showing as normal tiles. They’re not sure yet how to fix the bug, so they’re simply alerting people for now. Players will receive a gift of Orbs sometime in the near future as an apology.

Echoes: Mila’s Bounty 4 Available Today

Just a small heads up for Fire Emblem Echoes players: the fourth free DLC “Mila’s Bounty 4” is available to download starting from today.

Despite being promised as weekly DLC for a limited period, Mila’s Bounty skipped the previous week for some reason. Perhaps to space out the DLC before the final piece– Cipher Companions–arrives on 22nd June 2017.

In any case, this DLC provides access to the second Pitchfork item. After this, there’s only one more Mila’s Bounty, which provides the third and final Pitchfork. You’d better plan your potential Villagers wisely, if you haven’t already done so!
