The latest Grand Hero Battle has arrived in Fire Emblem Heroes! Grand Hero Battle: Valter puts you head-to-head against Valter, the sadistic Wyvern Knight from The Sacred Stones.
Valter is a dangerous unit with some impressive skills. At 5★ he wields the exclusive Cursed Lance, which boosts his stats and quickens his cooldown timer at the cost of 4 HP after each combat. He also comes armed with Luna, Darting Blow, and Panic Ploy.
Like most recent GHBs, you can fight Valter on Hard, Lunatic, and Infernal difficulty. His map is based on Scorched Sand, Chapter 15 from TSS.
Valter’s Grand Hero Battle will be available until 29 August at 6:59am UTC.
On 19 August, the Fire Emblem Cipher team hosted another successful livestream via NicoNico! Ryota Kawade and Young were our hosts as usual. Hibiku Yamamura, the voice actress for Rinea and Shade from Fire Emblem Echoes, also joined in as a special guest.
The stream opened up with some discussion about the upcoming release of Series 10, Crossroads, which features characters from Thracia 776, Fates, and Fire Emblem Heroes. The set will release on 21st September and the Cipher team started sharing daily card reveals just earlier this week.
Retailers in Japan will be giving out promotional Cipher gifts as part of a release campaign for S10. The items this time around are sticker sheets featuring various Cipher art! They come in two sets of three sheets which you can see here.
The stickers include artwork from throughout the whole lifespan of the game, as far back as S1’s Chrom and Marth, up to and including art from S10. If you look closely, you can even spot currently-unrevealed artwork for Finn and Anna!
Based on previous release promos, AmiAmi will likely be included in the list of approved vendors. Good news for us international Cipher fans!
Welcome to the start of another series of Fire Emblem Cipher weekly recaps! Series 10 of the Cipher TCG releases in just a little over a month. As such, the official @FEcipher twitter account has begun its daily reveals for the set.
Following the usual patterns, the first few cards show off the set’s main characters. Leif, the Lord of Thracia 776, started off the reveals this Monday. Shortly after came cards for both Male and Female versions of Kana from Fire Emblem Fates. The Fates portion of this set is based on the “Heirs of Fates” story, so most cards will be of children characters.
Next comes cost 1 cards for all three main characters of Fire Emblem Heroes! Both Sharena and Alfonse have the same card effects as their preview promos, but the art is new. Anna is a brand new card and the first time that any “Anna” has received an unpromoted card, making her eligible as an MC.
Earlier today, we almost got to see an SR card for Leif… but it seems Hans had other plans! Hans doesn’t appear in “Heirs of Fates”, but he’s still an important NPC that hasn’t yet gotten a card. Similarly, Izana will also appear in this set, as we saw his artwork in an earlier livestream.
