Heroes: Second Summer Banner Incoming + Version 2.7 Update!

Summer never seems to end in Fire Emblem Heroes, as a fourth batch of swimsuit-wearing Heroes will soon be available! A Sketchy Summer includes summer versions of Linde, Young Tiki, Takumi, and Camilla.

Interestingly, this banner features our first ever dagger-wielding cavalry unit, as well as a new red dragon flier. Check out the trailer to see the new Heroes in action!

You can also find a full list of their skills and abilities further down.

The A Sketchy Summer banner will be available from 10 July to 9 August, giving you plenty of time to try and obtain the new units.

Accompanying the banner are the usual Paralogue quests you can complete to snag some Orbs. In addition, the new Paralogue chapter will open up another Chain Challenge to attempt. If you manage to clear the new Paralogue chapter, its quests, and the Chain Challenge, you’ll earn 20 Orbs total!

Heroes: Version 2.7.0 Coming Soon!

Fire Emblem Heroes has announced details for the Version 2.7.0 update arriving in early July. To prepare for the update, the game will be offline between midnight and 2 AM UTC on 9th July 2018. Afterwards, 2.7.0 should become playable.

Here are the new details, which you can also read about from the in-game notifications screen.

Tactics Drills

These are new maps intended to allow players to learn the rules of the game while playing. Players will be given a fixed set of Heroes (so they can’t use their own ones) and must overcome challenges within a certain number of “phases”. Your turn and the enemy’s turn are each counted as individual phases.

There will be 3 difficulty levels and rewards such as Orbs and Hero Feathers can be earned upon the first completion of each map.

  • Basics: These teach the basic rules of combat and are thus recommended for beginners.
  • Skill Studies: These showcase various skills.
  • Grandmaster: Maps for advanced players. Only available after claring Book I, Chapter 13 in the main story.

Additional Skill Studies and Grandmaster maps will be added every Thursday during the daily rollover.

Heroes: Scattered Fangs Summoning Focus + Version 2.6 Update!

Three new heroes have just arrived in Fire Emblem Heroes! Spend some Orbs on the Scattered Fangs Summoning Focus to try your luck at one of three new 5★ heroes: Karla, Legault, or the new flying Nino. As of this banner, Kaze has also been added to the summoning pool at 3★ and 4★.

A new Story Mode chapter is also available alongside the new banner. Clear Book II, Chapter 10: The King’s Demise to see the ending of the Book II story arc! Complete all five chapters to earn up to 15 Orbs, plus another five from the associated Lunatic quests.

To celebrate the new heroes and story chapter, Heroes has also started a new Log-In Bonus! As usual, we’ll get a total of 13 Orbs over the next 10 days. The June Orb Promo is also available in the Shop. It contains 21 Orbs and also 60 Refining Stones. It costs €10.99/US$9.99.

The Scattered Fangs Summoning Focus and its associated story quests will be available for about two weeks, ending on 21 June. The June Orb Promo also ends on that day.

Additionally, the Version 2.6 Update is also live! This update brings lots of new, cool stuff to Heroes, including Accessories, new Weapon Refinements, an expanded Allies menu, and more! Squad Assault 11 is now also available. Click on the “Read More” to see a text breakdown of the new update goodies.

Finally, we also get some new Quests and Special Maps starting today! Over the next four days we’ll be getting four different Four Heroes Special Maps, starting with Roy for today. Tailtiu, Barst, and Kaze are the other three heroes. Clear the Normal version of each map for a 3★ version of the associated hero, and the Hard version for one Orb.

The Yay, Accessories! Quests are also available now. Complete three different missions to obtain three additional Accessories: a Seashell Hairpin, a Mysterious Mask, and a Spring Bunny Hat. These quests will be available for a good long while, ending on 20 July.

UPDATE: Something in the update broke the current Tap Battle and all progress has been reset. You can replay the old levels, but you won’t actually get any of the stated rewards. Heroes will be giving out Orbs in compensation for this error at a later date. Furthermore, the error announcement indicated that the next Tap Battle will begin on Monday, 11 June.

After the day’s earlier preview trailer, we weren’t expecting much else new with Heroes today. However, the game decided to drop down the Version 2.6 Update Notification! Read on below for more details of what we can expect for the next update in early June.

The Version 2.6 Update will bring a lot of new things to the game. Some of the bigger changes include an expanded Allies menu, changes to Arena Assault scoring, and the addition of Accessories! The update also brings some expected enhancements, such as further additions to the Weapon Refinery, and more smaller changes as well.

Once again, Heroes will have a maintenance period before the update goes live. It’s scheduled to begin at 10:00pm UTC on Thursday, 7 June. The update download will go live as soon as maintenance is over.

Additionally, the upcoming Voting Gauntlet: Heroes & Legends has been formally revealed! It features the four free Heroes original characters duking it out against four legendary heroes. Check out the bracket below:

The Voting Gauntlet begins this Friday, 1 June, and will last through the 7th. A special Log-In Bonus to celebrate the upcoming event also began today.
