Fire Emblem Heroes recently celebrated their 1-year anniversary. This marked a year of great success not just for the Fire Emblem franchise, not just for developer Intelligent Systems, but also, for Nintendo and their mobile initiative. They wanted to make popular mobile titles. They had a halfway win with Pokemon GO (which they didn’t make nor make the profits off of), then a bittersweet win with Super Mario Run (which was downloaded a lot, but not very well liked). So with Heroes, they had their first true success.
The good news for fans isn’t just all the stuff they’ve been giving away to thank fans for their loyalty to the game, but also, the promise that things aren’t slowing down anytime soon. As such, a new banner is coming in just two days, and not surprisingly, it celebrates Valentine’s Day. The banner is called Love Abounds, and it features, Hector, Lyn, Roy, and Lillina getting decked out in dapper yet romantic gear, and it’ll start on February 9th.
If that’s not enough, in the game’s announcement, they revealed a special Tempest Trials is coming that will star these characters. What’s more, Roy will be getting a special form as well that players can earn if they get enough points. As is typical with Tempest Trial events, you’ll be able to get a 4-star and 5-star version of this bonus characters. That, of course, doesn’t mention the Orbs, Feathers, and Sacred Seals you can earn as well.
There’s another event going on in Fire Emblem Heroes right now via the “A Hero Rises” event. Here, you’ll vote for the best character that is in the game currently. The winner of that poll will be distributed at a 5-star level to all players in the game. The poll is already halfway done, so if you haven’t voted for your character yet, you’d probably should start now.
