Another version update for Fire Emblem Heroes is coming soon. Version 5.11.0 is scheduled for release on 3rd or 4th November 2021, depending on your timezone.
Legendary Hero Updates
Another pair of Legendary Heroes will be receiving upgraded skills.
Special: Shining Emblem B: Binding Shield II – If unit’s Spd >= foe’s Spd+5 or if unit is in combat against a dragon foe, unit makes a guaranteed follow-up attack and foe cannot counterattack or make a follow-up attack. This skill can only be equipped by its original unit.
B: Slick Fighter C: With Everyone II – At start of turn, if unit is within 2 spaces of an ally, grants Def/Res +6 to unit and allies within 2 spaces for 1 turn. If a foe uses bow, dagger, magic, or staff and initiates combat against an ally within 2 spaces of unit, triggers [Savior] on unit. If unit triggers Savior, grants Atk/Spd/Def/Res +4 during combat. This skill can only be equipped by its original unit.
A further 8 Heroes will receive new weapon skills and/or refine options, including Legendary Marth and Tiki.

Fans have long anticipated the reveal of the Choose Your Legends 5 quartet, and today, we finally have news on them, in today’s Feh Channel andKeepers of Faith Banner Trailer!
To summarize, we have:
Marth, an incredibly powerful sword infantry that despite bringing a Falchion as per normal, comes with a wild assortment of buffing abilities for himself and his party members, a new Distant Counter type of A skill, and a conditional Vantage that has no HP check
Eirika, a very strong lance cavalry unit that has a strong defensive build in both her weapon’s %-reduction and her self-healing A skill through, as well as a B skill that acts as an enhanced Luna that also disables Guard effects
Marianne, a colorless tome infantry dancer that can reflexively dance a nearby unit simply by engaging in combat on player phase, including other dancers.
Gatekeeper, a super defensive green tome infantry that comes with a Close Counter variant, a useful version of Obstruct through his B Prf, and a weapon that bestows a variety of debuffs on enemies based on cardinally-placed allies similar to the Arvis/Saias 3-row/column range condition.
Along with these mighty units, comes a way to free-summon during this Choose Your Legend Summon Event. Summoners will get a free pull of their choice immediately on release (nothing new here as every banner has a free ‘Redeem’ on it), but also, a free Spark’able unit of their choice at 40, 80, 120 and 160 Summons. The caveat to this is that for each one that you pick, they become unavailable for following Sparks, meaning that you cannot spark a single unit more than one time in this. You’ll also get up to four Celestial Stones through these Sparks.
There’s a bit more news to add, as the Choose Your Legends 4 selection that is present for new players, will be expiring by August 31. If you have a friend that may want to give Fire Emblem Heroes a shot, encourage that they attempt to join and summon before then, to score a powerful free Hero.
Additionally, starting on August 17, there is a Dragonflower upgrade, as all units can have an additional 5 Dragonflowers spent on themselves, at a cost of 40, 80, 120, 160 and 200 per application of Dragonflower. Each applied Dragonflower will apply +1 to a unit’s stat, as per normal. Conveniently, there will be a Log-In bonus, awarding Summoners with 120 of each Dragonflower, allowing for effectively a free +2 application to a unit [per each of the 4 movement-types] of their choice. This Log-In Bonus only requires a single log in.
Through courtesy of the Fire Emblem Heroes Twitter accounts, we have news that Pelleas: Ashnard’s Orphan will be the next Grand Hero Battle unit, kicking off on August 18. I expect him to be a Red Tome unit, per his Dark Magic weapon proficiency from Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn, and his art, which is visible through the official Meet The Heroes page.
Speaking of that, the Meet The Heroes page has been updated with all four of Eirika, Gatekeeper, Marianne and Marth, as well as Pelleas. Full in-game character artwork for each of the five can be seen on these pages, as well as the chibis, and some story details if you’d like to see them. I highly recommend you check out Gatekeeper’s, at least for the animals in his in-game and chibi artworks.

From the Fire Emblem series comes the third figure in a new series of figures made by the developer of the series, INTELLIGENT SYSTEMS!
From the first Fire Emblem game “Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon & the Blade of Light” comes a 1/7th scale figure of the protagonist, Marth! Based on a special illustration by Daisuke Izuka, character designer of “Fire Emblem: New Mystery of the Emblem”, the figure features Marth in a dignified pose leading his army and inspiring his allies. The Hero-King’s gallant appearance has been brought to life in stunning detail. Be sure to add him to your collection!
The Marth scale figure is scheduled for a release in July 2022 at a suggested price of ¥20,900. Pre-orders for it are open on the Fire Emblem Online Shop now until October 27, 2021, and will be available to purchase at other vendors.
The Marth scale figure is real and it is glorious.
Last time in our update to the new line of official Fire Emblem scale figures by series developer Intelligent Systems, we learned of a teaser to an upcoming third collectible with just a silhouette teaser image to go by, knowing that we’d expect characters old and new.
We placed our bets on who this was going to be, and now the reveal proves us true: the third 1/7 scale figure will be based on Marth!
