Fire Emblem Heroes: latest events and content updates (July 2017)

Fire Emblem Heroes

On February 2nd, Nintendo launched Fire Emblem Heroes on Android and iOS (click here to check out everything you need to know about it). Just like all Free 2 Play games worth their salt, Nintendo is planning to provide users with regular content, events, and updates, in order to make sure they keep playing as long as possible.

In this post, we’re going to list all the events and content updates for Fire Emblem Heroes in June 2017, so that you can find all those details in one place. Naturally, we will keep on updating this post as soon as new content and events go live.

NB: as of July 2017, we’re changing the way those monthly posts work. From now on, we will keep this one updated, and each month, we’ll offload the previous month’s content to another post (as archives), to avoid ending with one massive beast of a post. You will find the list of posts for the previous months at the bottom on this page!
