Happy Birthday yer wacky owl

We are mere days from the first anniversary of Nintendo’s popular mobile title, Fire Emblem Heroes. Last night, The FeH team broadcast a brief video to give fans a heads-up on what celebratory treats would be herald the great occasion.

From February first, all players logging in will receive 50 orbs, and will have access to 25 daily maps, each based on a banner from FeH’s 2017 run. Two days later, all-new Developer Challenge Maps will be also be added, providing players with further adventures. New Grand Hero Battle Revivals will go live from Feb 8, as well as Special Training Maps, built specifically to help grind your heroes. These events will all fall under a double EXP banner, so it’ll be a great time to get your gang up to speed.

But that’s not all. Between February 8 through 22, a whole new rhythm-action mode is being added to the game. Tap Battle: Illusory Dungeon will challenge players to tap their screens to a beat in order to conquer enemies and progress through a dungeon. This mode will feature 100 levels, with various difficulty settings.

If all that isn’t enough for thee, then a new Legendary Hero Summoning Event has already gone live today This new event, featuring Ike: Vanguard Legend from FE Radiant Dawn runs until Feb 5. There will also be a new Hero Fest banner made available over the course of the month. On top of all of this, a poll will be held to ascertain the fans’ favourite hero to date.

That’s a lot of goodies to keep you engaged throughout the next few weeks. Further details can be found during the live stream’s VOD, embedded below for your convenience.
