Summoners can now challenge the Scarlet Sword at his own game, by entering Navarre’s Special Map any time between now and April 9.
His map expires on April 9 at 1:59a EDT, so you have time to train up your team if you need. If you need a new unit to help your cause, the Battling Navarre Banner is also available for the duration of the Grand Hero Battle.
That’s not all, however. The Wyvern Riders vs Pegasus Knights Voting Gauntlet starts in about 15 hours, and the first round brackets have already been posted by the FE_Heroes_JP Twitter. The Round 1 Matchups are:
Subaki vs Beruka
Palla vs Minerva
Cordelia vs Cherche
Hinoka vs Camilla
While the ladder itself hasn’t been posted (meaning Round 2 Matchups are not quite confirmed due to layout variances), this implies a bit of a difference from the last round, in which each side fought amongst itself for the top representative of its side.
It’s been no surprise that Fire Emblem Heroes has been a hit, but Nintendo hasn’t slowed down in giving players any updates. There’s a few things coming up, some which you may know of and some which you may not.
For starters, you may have already notice the currently active Banners joining the Spring Festival, Wyvern Riders (Camilla, Beruka, Cherche and Minerva) and Pegasus Knights (Hinoka, Cordelia, Palla and Subaki).
These Banners exist to promote the next upcoming Voting Gauntlet event, Wyvern Riders vs. Pegasus Knights, running from April 5th until April 10th.
With all of these Banners coming out, it’s a shame that the two free daily Orb reward is no longer active, but hopefully something else will come out that will let us bolster our Hero roster, maybe like…
The next Grand Hero Battle! Navarre is arriving on April 4th, and with him comes a banner tailored to defeating him and his allies, aptly titled Battling Navarre (including Effie, Sophia, Caeda and Kagero).
It’s been a hectic 45 hours…so hectic, that Nintendo updated the Princes vs. Princesses Voting Gauntlet to add more Milestone Bonus Rewards after the top Milestone was achieved before Round 1 completed. The craziest part is that those Milestones were met, too!
Assuming Milestones don’t change from here, everyone can expect at the event’s conclusion to receive five of each Great badge, 5,000 Universal Crystals, and best of all, 20 Orbs!
Competition was fierce, but the winners for the first round of the bracket have been decided. While some wins were by a landslide (Lucina defeated Sharena by almost a 3-to-1 scale), others were much closer (Ephraim defeated Leo by a much more narrow margin). Next up, we’ll see Lucina versus Eirika in the Princess bracket, while Ephraim faces Chrom in the Princes side.
The semi-final matches are available for 45 hours as of now, so if you were on one of the losing teams, you can join a new team and get back in the battle and push for those Hero Feathers!
Additionally, Nintendo sent out five free Orbs to users as both an appreciation gift and an apology for misleading information during Arena Defense calculation scores.
Update: The official Japanese Twitter account has teased a new Grand Hero Battle for tomorrow.
To nobody’s surprise, the Black Fang’s “Blue Crow” will be up for grabs. What we didn’t know though is that a 4 star version of (presumably) Ursula can be obtained.
