Heroes: Voting Gauntlet: New Year’s Showdown is Now Live!

Another clash of heroes is underway in Fire Emblem Heroes! All eight New Year’s themed heroes are dueling head-to-head in Voting Gauntlet: New Year’s Showdown.

Choose your favourite New Year’s hero to support between Laevateinn, Gunnthrá, Hríd, Fjorm, Takumi, Camilla, Azura, and Corrin. You can currently summon the first seven of these heroes in either New Year banner. If you missed Corrin from last year’s Tempest Trials, you can buy a copy of him with Heroic Grails.

Each battle in the first round pits one of last year’s Fates heroes against one of this year’s Heroes OCs. Check out the bracket below:

In addition to battling every 30 minutes to support your team, you can also complete Voting Gauntlet quests to earn more flags. Furthermore, there earn other rewards, including 4 Orbs, for battling in the VG itself. Do your best to support your team!

As usual, each round will last almost two full days, ending three hours before reset on the last day. Our current first round will end at 3:59am UTC on 4 January. Voting Gauntlet: New Year’s Showdown will come to a final close on 9 January at the same time.

Heroes: Special Heroes (New Year’s of Fire and Ice), Voting Gauntlet and Sale Bundles


With 2018 about to come to a close, it was only a matter of time until the 2019 New Year banner was announced. Dataminers may have already given us spoilers as for what was to come, but for the rest of the summoners out there, that aren’t following along, come check out the New Year’s of Fire and Ice Special Heroes banner that was just announced.

This year, Nifl and Muspell join forces in this unlikely celebration, giving us a summonable foursome in Fjorm, Gunnthra, Hrid and Laevateinn. Outside of the quartet, Laegjarn: New Experiences (a Blue Lance Cavalier) will be available as a Tempest Trials+ reward unit, in upcoming Tempest Trials+: An ALliance of Princesses (starting January 1). In total, the banner brings us new debuff-centric units and new skills in Hone Atk 4 and Joint Hone Spd.

Of course, this banner comes with a Paralogue series, so prepare for the standard batch of Orbs and likely, associated quests for more Orbs.


Beyond dealing with the incoming units in general battles, there is a Voting Gauntlet to prepare for. This voting gauntlet pits the 2018 vs the 2019 New Years units, in a fairly assorted batch that happens to include the Tempest Trials reward Corrin [M]. Will this mean that the batch of alts from last year will be available in a banner? Given the history of VGs, the answer is likely yes, so good luck (in advance) in scoring a New Year’s Camilla, Takumi or Azura for the Voting Gauntlet.

Finally, it looks like two new one-time purchase sales will be coming, bestowing to buyers a combination of 140 orbs, 10,000 Hero Feathers and the differentiating components of the two sales, either Fjorm: New Traditions and 400 Aether Stones or Laevatein: Kumade Warrior and 200 Heroic Grails. Each is available for $74.99, and only available for the month of January, 2019.

Heroes: Nifl vs. Muspell Voting Gauntlet underway!

Welcome to a new – you guessed it – Fire Emblem Heroes update! Today is the first day of the Nifl vs. Muspell Voting Gauntlet, which sees the four Heroes of these two lands being pitted against each other.

The first round match-ups are as follows, with each bracket featuring a battle between Nifl and Muspell:

So you can look forward to Fjorm facing off against her nemesis Surtr, a battle between the eldest siblings with Hrid and Laegjarn, and even some kind of confusing “friend or foe?” match between Ylgr and Helbendi.

If you need them, Hrid, Gunnthra and Laevatein can still be summoned from November’s Legendary Hero banner (but only for around 10 more hours), Surtr and Ylgr obviously still have their debut banner, while Laegjarn and Helbendi are in the Voting Gauntlet banner.

That just leaves Fjorm, but you did get her from completing Chapter 1 of Book 2, right…?

Also, the December monthly quests have recently started, so if you want to stack some of the monthly Training Tower and Arena quests with the Voting Gauntlet quests, now’s your chance!
