After the day’s earlier preview trailer, we weren’t expecting much else new with Heroes today. However, the game decided to drop down the Version 2.6 Update Notification! Read on below for more details of what we can expect for the next update in early June.
The Version 2.6 Update will bring a lot of new things to the game. Some of the bigger changes include an expanded Allies menu, changes to Arena Assault scoring, and the addition of Accessories! The update also brings some expected enhancements, such as further additions to the Weapon Refinery, and more smaller changes as well.
Once again, Heroes will have a maintenance period before the update goes live. It’s scheduled to begin at 10:00pm UTC on Thursday, 7 June. The update download will go live as soon as maintenance is over.
Additionally, the upcoming Voting Gauntlet: Heroes & Legends has been formally revealed! It features the four free Heroes original characters duking it out against four legendary heroes. Check out the bracket below:
The Voting Gauntlet begins this Friday, 1 June, and will last through the 7th. A special Log-In Bonus to celebrate the upcoming event also began today. Since the five summonable heroes in this Gauntlet are only available via Legendary Hero summoning events, we may not get a separate Voting Gauntlet banner. May the best hero win!
A new update is on its way to Fire Emblem Heroes! Check out the Version 2.5 Update Notification when you next log into the game.
The Version 2.5 Update will bring a lot of things to Heroes, some expected and some brand new. We’ll be getting some more Weapon Refinery options, and also some UI enhancements. One such enhancement is something many players have wanted for a while: an option to turn off Enemy Phase music!
Many of the unexpected changes fall into two categories: major Arena changes and an overhaul of the starting game Tutorial. Due to the Tutorial changes, all existing players will also receive a gift package.
Scroll on below for a deeper look at what the upcoming Version 2.5 changes will entail.
There will be a Maintenance Period starting on 8 May at 11:00pm UTC.. The update will go live as soon as the maintenance is over on 8~9 May. Additionally, because of the detailed Arena changes, the Arena will be closed all day on Tuesday and the next season will begin on Wednesday instead. This also applies to Arena Assault.
Additionally, the special Golden Week edition of Grand Conquests starts today! Make sure to read up on the changes from last event, such as the Rank Cap increase, and jump in when you’re ready. You can also already see the Grand Conquest Quests in the Quests and Missions page, including 3★ and 4★ Kaze: Easygoing Ninja.
Grand Conquests officially begins in a couple hours at 10:00am UTC. It will last for about a week, ending on 8 May.
Nintendo Mobile has posted a new Fire Emblem Heroes video! This video formally introduces the new Heroes original character Fjorm: Princess of Ice. Check it out below!
Fjorm looks to be a very powerful new hero. You can take a look at a full breakdown of her skills and abilities below. She will be available in the new Legendary Hero summoning event that starts tomorrow! The end of the video also includes an interesting bit of text regarding Fjorm and future Legendary Hero events…
Fjorm: Princess of Ice will only be available to summon during Legendary Hero summoning events. The next time she is planned to be available is around the end of December.
So, it looks like we may get a new Legendary Hero summoning event around New Years! These will likely become recurring events. More heroes limited to these events will almost certainly arrive in the future. Regardless, you can look forward to another special summoning event in a little over a month.
Our first Legendary Hero summoning event starts in a little under 24 hours at 7:00am UTC on 28 November. It will end on 4 December at 6:59am UTC. In addition to Fjorm, the banner includes several more powerful 5★ heroes at a base summoning rate of 8%! These are the only 5★ heroes that will be available to summon in this banner.
As a reminder, Heroes maintenance will be going into effect later today, in preparation for the upcoming Version 2.0 update. It will start at 11:00pm UTC tonight, in around 15.5 hours, and is scheduled to last around five hours. For a preview of all the cool stuff that will come out with the new update, check out our earlier article.
The 2.0 update is almost ready for Fire Emblem Heroes! Before the update goes live, Heroes will have some downtime. This scheduled maintenance period will fall from 11:00pm UTC on 27 November through 4:00am UTC on 28 November. Check the notification screen to find the times in your own time zone.
