Fire Emblem Heroes adds two new modes in latest update

Posted on July 5, 2017 by Jason Nason

Nintendo’s mobile title Fire Emblem Heroes has been updated to version 1.5.0 which adds two new modes added to Story Maps.

The first mode is called Chain Challenge, which follows similar rules to Tempest Trials. You’ll need to complete multiple maps in a row without being wiped out! Each challenge contains a set number of maps and if you can clear the whole set in succession, you win.

If your team is defeated halfway through, you can put together a new group using your remaining Heroes and retry from the same map where you lost. Also, with Chain Challenge you can get in-game items as rewards whenever you clear a challenge for the first time. Clear Chain Challenge on Normal and Hard to earn Hero Feathers, and clear on Lunatic to earn Orbs!

Chain Challenge mode is unlocked once you clear Chapter 2 in the Main Story.

The second mode is called Squad Assault, which is a unique mode where Heroes are captured by the enemy after completing a map. Once captured, they cannot be deployed again until the challenge ends. You’ll need to clear this mode to earn a Sacred Seal and Orbs! Each Squad Assault stage contains a set number of maps and if you can clear the whole set in succession, you win. As with Chain Challenge, you can get items as rewards whenever you clear an assault for the first time.

What sets Squad Assaults apart from Chain Challenge is its brutal difficulty and reliance on multiple squads of unique Heroes. Squad Assault is unlocked once you clear Chapter 1 in the Main Story.

There will also be improvements in several other areas including more details to the summoning screen, an increase to the Barraks size, and improvements to make purchasing easier.

You can see the full list of improvements here.

IMPRESSIONS: Fire Emblem Heroes

Posted on February 3, 2017 by Jason Nason

Nintendo and Intellgent Systems today released the mobile game Fire Emblem Heroes. This is the third mobile app from Nintendo and the second game to be released by the company.

Fire Emblem Heroes is an original strategy RPG about two warring kingdoms in a bitter clash. As a summoner, players build their army by calling upon popular Fire Emblem heroes from worlds that span the breadth of the series. Players will wage tactical battles streamlined for on-the-go play and level up a mix of new combatants and legendary heroes. Some familiar hero characters will become allies, while others will become enemy generals.

First of all the game is gorgeous. I would expect nothing less from Nintendo and Intelligent Systems but the game has all the polish you would see in a regular console release of any Fire Emblems game.

Nintendo revealed a teaser trailer for an upcoming collaboration title being developed by Intelligent Systems Co. Ltd, Atlus and Nintendo. The game is a crossover between Atlus’ Shin-Megami Tensi series and Nintendo’s Fire Emblem series, though no other details were revealed.

Will this be a strategy game? Perhaps this will be a fighting game in the same vein as Marvel vs. Capcom. Considering the roots of the Shin-Megami Tensi series as a dungeon crawler and rpg it’s likely to be a crossover story and an RPG, but a nice fighter would be welcome.Read More
