A new update (1.3.0) is available for Fire Emblem Heroes! It includes some changes to the game, as well as information about the upcoming Voting Gauntlet and an event. Heroes will prompt you to download the update when you open the app.
The first thing you may notice upon logging into the game is a small pop-up featuring Feh, the owl, during loading. These little tips and tricks about the game will now display while loading Heroes.
Once the game has opened, you’ll see that the Hero Fest banners are gone, replaced with two new banners for the upcoming Mage Voting Gauntlet. The two banners feature the eight mages that will be competing in the Gauntlet. Spend your Orbs wisely to try and pull Julia, Linde, Tharja, Sanaki, Henry, Merric, Leo, or Robin!
The Gauntlet itself is scheduled to begin on Friday, 12 May. As previously noted, updates to the Gauntlet rules will give losing heroes a bit of an advantage. Hopefully this will result in more even battles between characters.
