Once again, it’s another big day for Fire Emblem Heroes! The Version 1.7 Update is now available for download. If the game does not prompt you to download the update immediately, you can download it manually from your device’s app program.
Version 1.7 brings some fun updates to the game, including a new feature called Ally Support! Inspired by the support feature within many Fire Emblem games, Ally Support allows two units to gain stat boosts by being near each other in battle. There is also a Summoner Support option for your favourite heroes.
You can read further details within the Notification Screen. Alternatively, jump right in and start giving your heroes supports within the Advanced Growth section of the Allies menu.
Other features of the new update include a search function for Inherit Skill and defensive wins granted for Arena Assault matches. In celebration of the new update, Heroes has begun a new Log-In Bonus! Players can earn an additional 2 Orbs a day for up to 10 days starting tomorrow, 7 September.
The Choose Your Legends Voting Gauntlet has also just finished! Although Camilla managed a surprise upset in her match against Lyn, Ike managed to pull through and secure victory in the final round. Congratulations to all Ike supporters!
The Quick Hero Battle event is still going on for another day. However, players may be interested in hearing that we’ve already met the final point goal. As of the time of this post, we’ve reached an astounding 1,598,304,400 Points! Thank you to everyone for diligently playing the game. We should receive the 10 Orbs and 5,000 Feathers sometime soon.
Finally, some editors with Polygon recently held an interview with two of the Fire Emblem heroes game developers, Kouhei Maeda and Shingo Matsushita. Although the interview contained nothing particularly earth shattering, there are a few interesting tidbits of information. Check them out below! You can also read the full interview here.
