Heroes: Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Banner drops January 19, Free Itsuki in Tempest Trials+

If you’re a fan of the Wii U’s Tokyo Mirage Session #FE game, or are excited about the Encore release for the Switch that’s about to come out, well guess what; We’re getting a Banner for it! Enter Tsubasa, Eleonora, Mamori and Kiria in New Heroes (A Star is Born), featuring key playable characters from the TMS#FE series!

What’s to know if you’re not too familiar with the heavily Fire Emblem inspired Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblem “crossover”, the game itself features a cast of characters working towards becoming idols, with some of the cast already there and others just starting down the career path. Our ‘Heroes’ battle in a turn based setting with combat based on Fire Emblem, by way of the Weapon Triangle, among other features. This Banner features four units that have access to their Carnage Form, which effectively summons an altered Fire Emblem character to empower them and join in combat. That is probably the most preliminary of plot setup, but I’m prepared to spoil what I myself and not the most familiar with. What’s more, is that all four units in this Banner bring their Carnage Form partners with them.

The units don’t bring too many new things with them, but there is a new skill -Session skill line up for grabs present on both Mamori and Tsubasa, which are A-skills that focus on granting buffs to a unit based on the amount of foes who have already acted. The less foes that have acted, the more buffs that will be given. What’s neat on this is that in battles that feature fewer than 3 units at some point, or just have yet to move, the buffs provided are either +6 to two stats or +3 to two stats (depending on the skill). I am actually a bit unsure of how to interpret Tsubasa’s Sword Session skill, since it works on Player Phase but checks herself as an acting unit? I’ll have to see it in action to fully understand it. There are also some new line skills present, like Spd/Def Ruse 3 and Lul Atk/Res 3.

Tsubasa comes with Caeda, Eleonora with Virion, Mamori with Draug and Kiria with Tharja. Additionally, Itsuki, the lead male protagonist in the game, was spotted in one of the maps, implying that he’ll be a free unit coming soon, as Itsuki: Finding a Path, with Chrom, in the next Tempest Trials+ event. He is spotted as a Red Sword Infantry…will his sword be a Mirage weapon as well?

The next summoning event for the banner kicks off on January 19 at 11p PT, so you’ve got plenty of time to save up those Orbs if you’re looking for either the new skills or some new units from a fun game!

Heroes: Feh Channel, New Mode (Mjölnir’s Strike), Thracia 776 Banner, Book IV, New Free 5* Unit, Weapon Refines and More

Welcome, Summoners, to the next Feh Channel, for December 2019! This one’s got quite a bit, including the upcoming new Book IV, the next gameplay mode Mjölnir’s Strike, upcoming non-seasonal Thracia 776 Banner, mild details of the next Version Update, and a slew of other details actually released in the Version Update that came out while I was putting together this post that weren’t covered in the Feh Channel.

Feh ‘cuts the chit chat’ so to speak, by jumping into things before the 1 minute mark (which is pretty new for Feh, I’d say).

We are immediately granted view of the new mode, Mjölnir’s Strike, which features Thor, the God of War, and is actually available now via the newly released version update that came out moments ago.

This mode includes phases, including the first “Brace Phase”. We’re informed that they function one after the other in sequence, so this multi-phase battle gives Summoners a variety of ways to tackle the mode, rather than one quick and boring one, which is pretty exciting.

Heroes: Upcoming Voting Gauntlet, with 2 VG banners live now!

Coming soon to a Voting Gauntlet near you: The Battle of the Bands. Or rather, Headband Brawl, but my given name is objectively better.

All these dudes are wearing bands of some sort around their head – as the VG’s name may have implied – so it’s time for you to get behind your favourite band-wielder and pick up some rewards while you’re at it.

All the ladies are on one side, while the men are on the other. Tibarn, Barst, Grey, George, Sue, OG Mia, OG Sanaki and Flying Olivia are the 8 participants.

The VG will begin on the 1st of July, 7:00am UTC and will come to a close on the 7th of July, 3:59am UTC. Regular Voting Gauntlet rules apply.

As with every VG, there comes banners.

The genders have been separated into their own banners, and you get one free pull from each. Both banners begin today, and will come to a close on the 7th of July, 6:59am UTC. If you’re only going for the free summon, you’re statistically more likely for a free 5-Star pulling red in both banners.

One final thing for today: It’s Thursday, so that means it’s time for new Tactics Drills. Today’s release is a Skill Studies map, titled “Timid for a Reason.” You control Panne and her son Yarne in a shorter than usual 3-phase battle to eradicate all enemies.
