Heroes: Version 1.2.0 + “World of Shadows” Teaser

Today the Fire Emblem Heroes 1.2.0 update landed, bringing along a host of welcome gameplay improvements and features. One such feature is Sacred Seals, a new type of equippable item.

These function similarly to traditional Passive Skills, in that they provide various buffs when equipped, but the key difference is that they can be easily distributed between Heroes. Also, you may only possess one of each Sacred Seal.

To help players obtain Sacred Seals, a set of special quests have been added to the game, which run until 28th April 2017. During this time, there will be a Sacred Seals Log-in Bonus that awards 2 Orbs daily.

Additionally, for smashing last week’s Voting Gauntlet milestones, all players have been awarded 20 Orbs, 5 of each Great Badge and 5,000 Universal Crystals. These can be picked up from the Present List as usual.

Last but definitely not least, to celebrate the upcoming launch of Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia in Japan (and the Western launch in a month’s time), Nintendo released a trailer for a Echoes-themed banner arriving on 14th April 2017.

Echoes: Pre-orders Now Available on Nintendo UK Store

Echoes: Japanese Website Update + TV Commercials

In roughly 2 weeks time, Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia officially launches in Japan. To keep fans excited, Nintendo has updated the game’s official website with tons of new content.

Firstly, the Movie section has updated with three short, but very exciting, TV commercials. Typically, these are meant to be aired in Japan.

The first commercial (which we’ve linked above) briefly goes through the game’s basic premise, while the second one focuses on the story, and finally the third one is more about the gameplay.

Of note, the story-based commercial features a very curious scene at the very end, which you may have to pause and slow down to see what’s going on. Additionally, the gameplay video shows off a bunch of skills, some new, some old.

By the way, you may have noticed we’ve started added post-release content for the game, including a full list of skills. Of course, be wary of spoilers if going in.
