Nintendo and Intelligent Systems have revealed the May update for Fire Emblem Heroes, and as usual it brings new weapon refines, new UI enhancements, as well as new features.


Check out the details below:

Friend Mock Battles

People playing Aether Raids have requested that they be able to play against their friends’ Defense Maps, and the upcoming update will add in the ability to do so by clicking Edit Aether Keep, Further Options, then clicking Friend Mock Battle. You are able to set whether you want to let others battle your team by turning on permissions, which will be added with the update.


Aether Raids
