Heroes: Legendary Alm Finally Gets His Day, Drops April 27

Alm finally got his day, as Alm: Saint-King, the next Legendary Hero, is now summonable in the first Gaiden-themed Legendary Hero Banner!

Japanese Trailer: Here

Alm, an Earth-blessed Legendary Hero that provides the same bonus as Legendary Roy before him, comes in as a Colorless Bow Infantry unit, and brings with him, a handful of new and useful skills. Aside from his B and C being the already in the game Null Follow-up 3 and Odd Attack Wave 3, he brings the new A skill Darting Blow 4 (granting +9 Spd on initiation), the new Special Lunar Flash [2] (Treats foe/s Def/Res as if reduced by 20% during combat. Boosts damage by 20% of unit’s Spd) and his personal bow, Luna Arc (14 Mt | 2 Rng | Eff. vs Fliers | Grants Spd +3 | If unit initiatse combat, deals damage = 25% of foe’s Def. [Ignores reductions to Def crom special skills like Lunar Flash.])

Alm is pretty much joining with a bow that rocks permanent half-Luna, and a perf that implies that he’ll be one speedy boy. If you want to boost his speed more, he comes with the Pair-Up ability, making him number two after Legendary Roy.

Of course, Legendary Banners aren’t just known for their Legendary Hero; they also feature an 8% summoning rate on a select batch of 12. This Legendary Hero summoning event runs from April 27 until May 7, and brings:

  • Red
    • Ike (Legendary)
    • Marth (Brave)
    • Roy (Legendary)
  • Green
    • Fae (Christmas/Holiday)
    • Hector (Brave)
    • Sue
  • Blue
    • Ephraim (Christmas/Holiday)
    • Fjorm (standard)
    • Nailah
  • Colorless
    • Alm: (Legendary)
    • Eirika: (Christmas/Holiday)
    • Leanne

Considering the popularity of many of these Heroes, this is looking to be a pretty exciting banner to summon from. Should you opt to drop some orbs, then I wish you good luck, Summoners!

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…!
