Starting today, the first seasonal Fire Emblem Heroes event–the Spring Festival–is underway. During this event, players can try to summon Easter-themed versions of Chrom, Lucina, Xander and Camilla.
Accompanying these “new” Heroes are a set of 3 Paralogues, offering a total of 9 Orbs if beaten on all difficulties, as well as timed Spring Festival quests (including one which provides a bonus 2 Orbs).
The Easter-themed Heroes and timed quests are set to expire during 14th April 2017 at 6:59 UTC. In particular, the special Heroes will only be available during this event (at least for this current year), so good luck if you’re egg-hunting!
Aside from the festivities, plucky data-miners have discovered a new Voting Gauntlet for April, which you can read about and discuss over here. The March Voting Gauntlet was a lot of silly fun, so here’s hoping the next one will also be a good one!
Moments ago, Fire Emblem Heroes greeted us with a data update containing several new units, a new Paralogue and a new Focus, which can be seen as Sibling Bonds. This new Banner and Focus group gives us a single new Focus with six units (the most in a Focus thus far). There is only one Focus this time, but it’s the largest Focus released to date.
This new Banner bring us three new maps and six new characters, including Eldigan, Olwen, Reinhardt and Lachesis (from Fire Emblem Thracia 776), Klein (Fire Emblem Binding Blade), Sanaki (Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn). Sanaki marks the first appearance of a character from any of the console Fire Emblem games released internationally, which is a surprise given the anticipation of Ike, who heralds from two popular internationally released games.
Additionally, Launch Celebration Part 4 exists, which is a two part map granting orbs as a prize. Lastly, a new banner appears to have been leaked…
