Starting today, a new Grand Conquests in underway in Fire Emblem Heroes. This time, the battlefield is spread across the realms of Hoshido and Nohr, from Fates. Yes, we still don’t know what the continent’s name is…
Summoners will team up with Ryoma, Xander or Corrin, who are locked in a three-way battle similar to the pivotal moment in Fates. Although on this occasion, you won’t have the choice of which army to fight for, as the RNG will decide for you instead.
Like previous Grand Conquests, the event is divided into 3 rounds, each lasting around 2 days each (starting 4 hours after the next daily rollover). Each round, there will be quests where you can earn 1 Orb and more Conquest Lances to keep fighting.
From here, I don’t think there are many continents that remain untouched by war. Perhaps they’ll cycle through past continents, although we’ll probably end up fighting on Fódlan at some point in the future.
Today, the Fire Emblem Expo event was held in Japan. For those who missed the news earlier, this was a fan event with various fun activities like a live concert, stage drama and the chance to bag some exclusive merchandise.
If you were expecting some big news from the event, well, I’m not sure what to tell you. But there was a nice surprise for fans who attended, as two new lines of merchandise releasing later this year were shown on display.
San-ei Character Plush
San-ei, who are renowned for producing quality plush toys for various Nintendo properties (such as Super Mario and Pokémon), will be selling plush versions of Marth, Roy, Ike, Lucina and female Corrin from late July.
Fire Emblem Armory Collection
I dunno about you, but the Fire Emblem series has some pretty cool weapons. At some point in 2019, fans can own miniature versions of Marth’s Falchion, Roy’s Binding Blade, Ike’s Ragnell, Chrom’s Sealed Falchion and (female) Corrin’s Yato.
A nice surprise came today for Summoners, informing us of the new upcoming Harvest season banner, and its four new Heroes. This banner does give us our fourth Camilla alt, but it also gives us an entirely new character, Mikoto, from Fire Emblem Fates.
Part of this banner includes the introduction of a few new skills, one of which appears to negate meta-defining skills like Quick Riposte and Bold Fighter entirely. Other skills look pretty neat, so place value where you feel it belongs, as always.
Adrift comes with a Paralogue chapter series, and kicks off the morning after the next Feh Channel update, on November 8 at 11p PT. It also brings news of the next upcoming Tempest Trials+ reward unit, Azura: Young Songstress. Could this be the game’s second free Dancer? I’d be excited for that!
