Heroes: Bond Hero Battles Coming Soon + Voting Gauntlet Rewards

Fire Emblem Heroes is introducing a new type of Hero Battle: Bond Hero Battles, which focus on pairs of intimately-connected Heroes from across the Fire Emblem series.

The first of these will feature Alm and Celica from the latest Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia–and it will be available starting from 6th July, a day before the next Tempest Trials starts.

Unlike previous Hero and Grand Hero Battles, you do not gain any Heroes; instead, Orbs will be the prizes. At the time of writing, no further details, such as the amount of Orbs, have been revealed.

Speaking of Orbs, the 10 Orbs and 10,000 Universal Crystals for smashing the 10 billion points total score for the War of Clerics Voting Gauntlet can now be redeemed. Make sure to grab them from the Present List before 18th July rolls over!

GameXplain goes over Echoes details

GameXplain did a 2 hour stream of the now released Japanese version of Echoes, which you can see here.

Derrick shows off the new prologue of the game, where Alm and friends are kids assisting Mycen fight off some invaders, before Celica goes on her own way to begin her training as a Priestess. Afterwards, the stream kicks into the video we saw from the original trailer announcement.

Fast forward to the present; the new village mechanics are shown. Similar to Shin Megami Tensei IV, there are static images of characters to talk to, which can include townspeople offering hints or even your own allies sharing their backstories.
