Heroes: “Overseas Memories” Features Summer Heroes from Three Houses!

Students and their teacher from Three Houses are looking to make summer memories in Fire Emblem Heroes, in the upcoming “Overseas Memories” summoning event.

This time around, the silhouettes–if you saw them via the in-game notification–were fairly easy to guess. The Heroes that can be summoned between 8th July and 8th August (UTC) are Summer versions of: Ingrid, Dorothea, Sylvain and Duo Byleth (with Rhea).

Also, Sylvain can be summoned as a 4-star Focus Hero. Additionally, a Summer version of Lorenz can be obtained in the next Tempest Trials+ event. Of note, with the exception of Byleth, this is the first time any of the characters have appeared in Heroes.

For a text breakdown of the Heroes’ skills and whatnot, please continue on!

Smash Brothers Ultimate: Jedi Shows off Byleth Stream on the 28th

Hey there folks, Jedi here. I plan on streaming to show off Byleth in Super Smash Brothers Ultimate once they’re released on 28th January (PST).

The stream will likely be around Noon, Pacific Standard Time (PST). We’ll be doing their classic mode, along with some random training mode labbing/matches and maybe throw in some online matches as well.

It’ll be on my Twitch at: https://www.twitch.tv/jedisupersonicsf/

Hope to see you there! Maybe we could even do a fun little Q&A.

Byleth Joins Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as the 5th DLC Fighter!

The inevitable has happened, although perhaps far sooner than we imagined… In today’s Super Smash Bros Ultimate presentation, it was announced that Byleth from Three Houses will be joining as the 5th DLC Fighter, from 29th January 2020 (UTC).

Similar to Robin and Corrin, players can choose to fight as both male and female versions of Byleth. As you’d expect, Byleth fights with their signature Sword of the Creator, but to mix things up (and reduce complaints although good luck with that), they can fight with other hero relics as well.

The Sword of the Creator is Byleth’s default weapon, used for regular attacks. It’s also used during upward inputs, such as Byleth’s Up Smash, which launches foes into the air, and Up Special, which reels in foes and can be used to grab onto edges.

For sideways inputs, Byleth wields Dimitri’s Areadbhar instead. Because it’s a lance, it has a longer reach than the Sword of the Creator. This long range extends to the Side Smash attack, which can also be angled. However, its damage is concentrated on its tip.

Downward inputs cause Byleth to wield Edelgard’s Aymr. This mighty axe has a meteor effect when used during a Down Air attack. But to really appreciate its power, you need only witness its Down Special, which charges a devastating blow with a brief moment of super armour.

Lastly, Byleth will borrow Claude’s Failnaught for some of their neutral moves. During their Neutral Air attack, Byleth will spin around using the bow. For their Neutral Special, they will obviously fire an arrow. But this can also be charged up into a powerful beam attack.

Three Houses: “Sothis Regalia” Costume for Protagonists Available via Expansion Pass

To celebrate the end of the year, owners of the Three Houses expansion pass can download the “Sothis Regalia” costume, which lets the protagonists dress up as Sothis.

By the way, the Japanese website explicitly states that this will be the final costume DLC for the game.

Looking back at the upcoming DLC info from the Famitsu guidebook, you can see that this costume was originally part of the 4th and final wave of DLC. We translated it as “new costume(s) for male Byleth, female Byleth and Sothis”.

However, the wording was rather unclear; it was probably intended to be read as “new Sothis costumes for male Byleth and female Byleth”. Indeed, I’m sure many fans were wondering how they’d implement a costume for Sothis, who’s a NPC.
