Fire Emblem Heroes Celebrates its 1000th Hero!

With the addition of the latest summoning event, New Heroes, Ascended Ced & Rearmed Plumeria, Fire Emblem Heroes now has 1000 Heroes in the game.

The honour of being the 1000th Hero goes to Patty, Brigid’s daughter from Genealogy of the Holy War.

Players can obtain free copies of Patty by completing special celebratory quests. Afterwards, she’ll start appearing in new summoning events.

Other quest rewards include 10 Arena Reward 3 summon tickets, plus a snazzy accessory. On top of that, there’s a log-in bonus where you can pick up 100 of each Dragonflower, 100 Trait Fruit and more.

Nintendo also shared a cute YouTube video to mark the occasion.

Besides that, they’ve opened a celebration site where you can watch this video and play around with an icon maker. There’s a “Coming Soon” section too, which will open on 21st September.

Finally, if you’re a North American or Canadian resident, you can try your luck at the 1000 Heroes celebration sweepstakes. Up for grabs are 20 acrylic stands featuring some of the Heroes, such as Legendary Marth, Valentine’s Chrom & Robin, Legendary Veronica and Halloween Sothis.

Fire Emblem Engage: Emblem Marth & Emblem Ring Videos

At first I thought today would be a quiet day, when there was no Fire Emblem Engage Twitter post during the usual time…

First, Nintendo Japan has uploaded a trailer showcasing the Emblem Rings.

It explains the benefits of equipping Emblems, the Engage mechanic and shows off various of the Emblems, such as Corrin and Byleth for the first time.

Meanwhile the official Japanese Twitter account shared a video showcasing Emblem Marth’s abilities.

Both videos feature multiple new characters, as well as names for previously unnamed characters, among many other details.

On top of that, the official Japanese website has updated, with Story, World and Character sections. The characters section includes Alear, the Dragon Guardians, royalty from the 4 nations, Lumera, Veyle, the officially revealed Emblems and the Four Hounds.

There’s a LOT to cover between the three fronts, so a full analysis might take a while, especially as I’m busy with work. However, if you’re curious, I’ve gone over most of the notable discoveries at Serenes Forest’s Twitter. (Anything to do with mechanics has not been covered.)

Fire Emblem “Castle Conversations” Returns with Joe Zieja & Erica Mendez

About a year and a half ago, the Western branch of Nintendo and Fire Emblem Heroes produced a Castle Conversations video, featuring multiple FE voice actors, as a parallel to the Japanese Roundtable videos.

While the 5th Roundtable video came out last week, we haven’t seen another Castle Conversations. Until now that is!

Volume 2 of Castle Conversations features Joe Zieja (voice of Claude, Canas and Jamke) and Erica Mendez (voice of Bernadetta and also the recent Legendary Deirdre).

Not actual game footage!

Interestingly, during the Erica Mendez section, Fehnix asks her to voice both Deirdre and also young Shannan in a scene from Genealogy of the Holy War. Since the game hasn’t been officially localised, this is probably the closest we’ll get for now.

This wouldn’t be the first time they showed off footage not from the games; in the first Castle Conversations, they seemingly showed pre-release footage from Three Houses. While this hasn’t been officially confirmed, apparently thanibomb (who leaked various Three Houses info) agrees with this.

“Fire Emblem Roundtable Vol. 5” Casual Livestream Scheduled for 27th August (Japan)

A fifth installment of the Fire Emblem Roundtable will be broadcast from 27th August 2022, between 18:00 and 20:00 (Japan time).

Like previous broadcasts, Chief Fehnix (voiced by Takehito Koyasu) will be chatting to voice actors from the series. This time, he’ll be joined by Kentaro Tone (voice of Reinhardt etc.) as a sub-MC.

As always, there will be no new game-related information.

On this occasion, they’ll be chatting about the 10th anniversary of FE Awakening, which released in Japan on 19th April 2012.

Currently announced guests include Tomokazu Sugita (voice of Chrom etc.) and Yū Kobayashi (voice of Lucina etc.).
