More Japanese Merchandise for April/May

At the end of our previous article, we talked about a new set of Fire Emblem Heroes acrylic mini-figures releasing in Japan in late April.

Since then, the official Fire Emblem Japanese Twitter followed up with more news of upcoming merchandise! Many of these are sequels to existing merchandise lines from November 2017.

Pin Badges

These are highly collectable badges (75 mm in diameter) featuring cutesy artwork of popular/important characters.

The new Hector, Soren, Leon, Alm and Celica designs will be available from late May. From the sound of things, there will be more badge designs after this.

Clear Files

These are thin, semi-translucent A4 file holders that are popular over in Japan.

The theme of this collection is “bonds” between siblings and comrades. It’s not very clear (pun not intended), but it looks like they’re sold separately–and not as a set like previously. Anyway, the planned release date is, again, late May.

Update: It was pointed out by SuperNintendomaniac that this is the first time Saizo and Kaze’s official artwork has been seen.

Heroes: Tap Battle is Back! Illusory Dungeon: Shadowed Memories

Warm up your fingers, because another Tap Battle has arrived in Fire Emblem Heroes! Prepare a team of your favourite units to tackle Illusory Dungeon: Shadowed Memories. You can find it in the new Events menu at the bottom right of the Battle screen.

Like other Tap Battle events, this event is more of a rhythm game than a strategy RPG. Tap the screen in time with the music to defeat waves of enemies. Swap between Casual and Expert mode and/or Normal and Hard difficulties to find the playstyle that’s best for you. You can also alter the music, effects, and other settings.

The first eight stages are available now, and four new floors will be added every day. You can also earn Hero Feathers and Great Badges with daily quests! Make sure to play every day to reach the end of the dungeon and earn all of your daily rewards. Who knows what could be waiting for you at the end?

Tap Battle: Illusory Dungeon: Shadowed Memories will be available for two weeks, fading into the mists on 6 April at 6:59am UTC.

Additionally, Mini Acrylic Figure Collection Vol.3 will be coming soon! This latest mini-figure set contains chibi versions of all eight Spring Heroes, Anna, and a mystery figure. If you’re interested, you can pre-order a box on AmiAmi for a late April release. I wonder who that mystery figure could be?
