Heroes: Incoming Fallen Heroes Banner & Grand Hero Battle

If you were curious about what’s to come in Fire Emblem Heroes after reading the recently released Calendar‘s “New Heroes Summoning Events” and “??? Grand Hero Battle” then you’re among many. Just a short while ago, we got our first glimpse at the mysterious events to come.

If her eyes could kill…

We’re about to be hit with the Fallen Heroes Banner. The Fallen Heroes Banner will be available starting at 11pm PST on February 21 (tomorrow night), and will be available “through future summoning events”. The banner features a Grima-possessed male Robin, Archanea’s Emperor Hardin and Duma-possessed Celica. The three of these units being some interesting new skills, including the never before seen Armor Manakete in Robin. Click Here for the Japanese release.

Additionally, on February 23, we’ll be able to battle Takumi: Empty Vessel, in his incoming Grand Hero Battle.

Warriors: Female Robin Gameplay

The Fire Emblem Warriors Twitter has just revealed some gameplay of female Robin.

We don’t have much male Robin footage to go off of, but I did notice a new Musou attack compared to the one we’ve seen from the GameXplain video. This one features several charge attacks with lightning spheres diving around and blasting into enemies.

Until we see more of both Robins in action, we can’t be fully sure that they are 100% clones. That said, since Female Robin is confirmed to be only playable outside of story mode, it’s very likely she’s just a skin with a bit more detail.

It’s entirely possible that male Corrin will receive this same treatment–being a skin of the already announced female Corrin. However beyond these two Avatars, I highly doubt we’ll have any other “clone” characters like this.

Warriors: Famitsu Reveals Cordelia and female Robin, teases Casual/Classic

Famitsu’s official website has shared a tiny Fire Emblem Warriors-related snippet from its next issue, which arrives on Japanese bookshelves on 3rd August.

We learn that Cordelia, the exceptionally skilled yet humble Ylissean Pegasus Knight, and the female version of Robin the Tactician will be joining the previously-announced Awakening warriors on the battlefield.

The accompanying text also states that the magazine will be delving into key gameplay mechanics such as effective damage, the weapon triangle, as as well as Classic and Casual (modes, presumably).

In Classic, fallen characters cannot be re-deployed, mimicking permanent death in the main series games, while this restriction is removed in Casual. Earlier, the developers had teased permanent death, so it’ll be interesting to see how it works here.

More FE Warriors Gameplay from San Diego Comic Con

It’s time once again for some more Fire Emblem Warriors analysis! GameXplain brought this to us from the San Diego Comic Con.

We got to see a bit of Lucina, Robin & Lissa along with some more Corrin gameplay.

Lucina seems to emulate her father’s style (like in Awakening), but with her own twists, such as quick thrusts which look to be a C1 attack (C refers to charge or strong attack and the number is where its used in your button combo, so C1 would be just doing a charge/strong move without any normals before it).

With it she can quickly change her direction and shift her positioning in a pinch, which will likely be a nice trick for speedrunners down the line.

Lucina is also voiced by Alexis Tipton like in Fire Emblem Heroes. She has done other roles such as Kid Trunks in the current Funimation dubs of anything Dragon Ball related, and Pascal in Nier: Automata.
