Fire Emblem Heroes Choose Your Legends: Round 5 Voting Opens

choose your legends 5

Choose Your Legends: Round 5, the latest in Fire Emblem Heroes‘ annual popularity contests, is now open for voting. The top two men and women in the poll earn special alternate versions of the characters added to the game. Players can submit one vote each day through January 28, 2021.

To vote, head to the Choose Your Legends: Round 5 site. This year, all voters must sign into a Nintendo Account. This change follows concerns about double-voting and automated voting in last year’s contest. All voters will receive 100 Platinum Points on your My Nintendo account. Additionally, if you vote three or more times, you’ll earn a special wallpaper.

Previous winners, like last year’s Three Houses squad of Edelgard, Dimitri, Claude and Lysithea, are ineligible to win again. That means that all versions of Ike, Lyn, Roy, Lucina, Hector, Ephraim, Celica, Veronica, Alm, Micaiah, Eliwood and Camilla are also out of the running. Like in past years, different versions of the same character are available for voting, but Intelligent Systems and Nintendo will combine most of these votes when determining the overall winner. The exception: characters like Anna are technically different people in each appearance, so they’re kept separate.

In the past, the Fire Emblem Heroes Twitter account shared midterm Choose Your Legends voting results halfway through the voting period, and the units themselves debuted in August of each year. This voting will lead into Fire Emblem Heroes‘ fourth anniversary celebration in February 2021. Nintendo and Intelligent Systems haven’t yet announced the details of this event.

Fire Emblem Heroes is available on iOS and Android. Its most recent event, Dark Desert Rituals, added new versions of fan-favorite characters like Tharja and Dorothea to the game.
