Fire Emblem Heroes Launches Anniversary Hero Fest Event And New “A Hero Rises” Voting Campaign



Today, February 2, marks the first-year anniversary for Nintendo smartphone app Fire Emblem Heroes. In celebration we have a new Summoning Focus, a new favorite Hero voting campaign, and more.


First, the One-Year-Anniversary Hero Fest kicked off, featuring an initial summoning rate for the 5-star Focus Heroes in Ike: Brave Mercenary, Nephenee: Fierce Halberdier, Lyn: Brave Lady, and Sigurd: Holy Knight. This Focus will be available through February 9.



Next up, here’s a summary of the different events for the one-year anniversary:


  • One-Year-Anniversary Present – Anyone who logs in through March 8 can receive 50 Orbs, one time only.


  • One-Year-Anniversary Celebration Log-In Bonus – Through February 17, you can receive a Log-In Bonus up to 10 times for a total of 20 Orbs.


  • Dialy Special Maps – Through February 26, Daily Special Maps will be sent out every day for 25 days. There are two difficulties for each: Normal and Hard. You can earn up to 50 Orbs by completing these maps on both difficulty modes.


  • Double EXP and SP Event – Through February 9, the EXP and SP you earn in battle will be doubled.


Again, keep in mind that the Legendary Hero Summoning Event is still live, and if you’re looking to bolster your roster then that should be the one to go with. Check out more on that in our previous report.


Fire Emblem Heroes just concluded its second Choose Your Legends campaign where we saw Hector, Ephraim, Celica, and Veronica take the top spots to receive a special outfit version later.



A new voting event called “A Hero Rises” just kicked off, and it will have fans vote on the #1 Hero. From now through February 12, you can check out the official website to participate in the first round by voting for your favorite Hero among those who appear in Fire Emblem Heroes.


The first round will determine the top-four Heroes who will become eligible for the second (and final) round of voting. The winning Hero at the end will be available to everyone who clears the story map Xenologue 3: The People’s Hero, which will be distributed sometime in late February.


The following characters won’t be available for voting: Alfonse, Sharena, Anna, Veronica, Bruno, Surtr, Laevatein, and Loki. Fans will get to submit their votes once per day for the first round and the final round from February 15 through February 19.
