Nintendo hosted the latest Feh Channel broadcast for Fire Emblem Heroes, where plenty of new information was revealed for the smartphone strategy RPG. Here are the highlights on what’s new.


The first news was a Choose Your Legends update, where we got a look at new Heroes from the event that will be joining the game:



Here are more details on the newcomers:


Lute (CV: Brina Palencia, Artist: Seo Kouji)



Mia (CV: Lani Minella, Artist: Yoneyama Mai)




Dorcas (Artist: Soeda Ippei)


Lute, Mia, and Dorcas are already available in Fire Emblem Heroes’ latest “Farfetched Heroes” banner along with a new Paralogue Story.



Joshua from Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones will be available in the next Tempest Trials starting on November 20 at 11:00pm PT.


Before Fire Emblem Heroes launches, there was a “Choose Your Legend” campaign where fans got to vote in their favorite Heroes. It was teased during the broadcast that there will be a new Choose Your Legend campaign, but no further information was revealed.


The next big announcement was one for the Stave Heroes, as they’re getting a major improvement in the next version update with the ability to learn a new skill at 5-stars. For example, Sakura was given Fear+ (Mt:12, Rng: 2 – “After Combat, inflicts Atk-7 on Target and foes within 2 spaces of target through their next actions) and Physic+ (Rng: 2 – Restores HP = 50% of Atk. Minimum of 8 HP).



New Staff skills will also be added.



The above 18 skills will have reduced cooldowns by 1.



Barracks expanded to fit 100 more Heroes.



Main Story and Paralogue Maps will also have a cap of 10 stamina.



Weapon Refinery was revealed as a new feature that allows you to upgrade weapons for extra stats and even extra effects for some legendary weapons. This system also allows you to upgrade regular weapons into much more powerful ones, for example, a Killing Edge+ can be upgraded to Slaying Edge+. There are several other weapons that can be “evolved” or upgraded.


The Weapon Refinery feature uses a new currency called Arena Medals that you get from participating in Arena battles and Refining Stones from the Arena, quests, and event rewards.




A new “Legendary Hero Summoning Event” has been revealed. It’ll feature a brand-new mystery Hero along with the return of several other special Heroes we’ve seen in the past. The 5-star Focus appearance rate will be set at 8% with the non-focus 5-star Heroes set to 0% so that means you won’t be summoning any other 5-star Heroes other than the ones for the banner, which is planned for a November 27 launch.


The above is a look at a new story movie for Book II that follows a brand-new protagonist named Fjorm.





The new story focuses on Fjorm: Princess of Ice and Surtr: Ruler of Flame. New players will get to play it right away.



As for the mystery Hero from earlier, it’s Fjorm, and all players can get her as a 5-star Hero by just beating Chapter 1 of Book II.
