Heroes: Heroes with Blade Skills Banner + Daily Training Tower Quests!

A new skill-focused banner has arrived in Fire Emblem Heroes! Summoning Focus Heroes with Blade Skills contains 5★ versions of all three blade tome wielders: Tharja, Odin, and Nino.

Rauðrblade, Blarblade, and Gronnblade are very useful magical weapons. Stat buffs applied to the hero wielding one of these tomes add an extra point onto their damage! You can use these characters with their own tomes or use Skill Inheritance to pass them onto another tome-wielding unit.

This new banner will be available until 4 September at 6:59am UTC. Good luck summoning some new units for your teams!

Additionally, a new series of quests is now available! The Daily Training Tower Quests rewards you with Crystals, Dueling Crests, and Hero Feathers for competing in the Training Tower. These quests refresh every day, so make sure you complete them daily! They will be available until 8 September. Check out below for more details.

Echoes: Nintendo Dream Interview from May 2017

Back in May, Nintendo Dream conducted a post-launch interview with the developers of Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. Thanks to Kirokan, this interview has now been translated into English.

In the interview, the developers reflect on the player feedback received after launch and discuss how certain design choices were made, such as the inclusion of new characters and Alm becoming left-handed.

We were incredibly anxious due to development limitations, as well as wondering whether the newer fans of the series would be accepting of this game. So after seeing the great response the game got, well, it was a relief!

–Toshiyuki Kusakihara

They even briefly mention Fire Emblem Switch and touch on some Fire Emblem Heroes-related trivia.

With the experience and “know-how” gained from Awakening and Fates, we attempted to make [the people] in both this game and the next one on Switch closer to realistic proportions and movements.

Whereas really, the FEH side just wanted another archer unit [with Faye].

Warriors: Female Robin Gameplay

The Fire Emblem Warriors Twitter has just revealed some gameplay of female Robin.

We don’t have much male Robin footage to go off of, but I did notice a new Musou attack compared to the one we’ve seen from the GameXplain video. This one features several charge attacks with lightning spheres diving around and blasting into enemies.

Until we see more of both Robins in action, we can’t be fully sure that they are 100% clones. That said, since Female Robin is confirmed to be only playable outside of story mode, it’s very likely she’s just a skin with a bit more detail.

It’s entirely possible that male Corrin will receive this same treatment–being a skin of the already announced female Corrin. However beyond these two Avatars, I highly doubt we’ll have any other “clone” characters like this.
