■ Book VIII of the main story begins!

Starting 7/12/2023 7:00(UTC), Book VIII of the main story will open.

The Kingdom of Askr and the Emblian Empire overcome their hardships and join hands. However, that peace is suddenly shattered by the forces of Yggdrasill, the World-Tree. After Ratatoskr—who was sent to assassinate Alfonse—joins their side as an ally, the Order of Heroes faces a terrifying conspiracy…

5★ Mythic Hero Ratatoskr: Mending Hand will join your barracks if you clear Part 5 of Chapter 1 of Book VIII on Normal difficulty.

Be sure to watch the Book VIII Opening Movie and witness Ratatoskr dashing across the World-Tree and setting the scene for Book VIII! You can jump right into the story of Book VIII even if you haven’t completed Books I through VII.

And to celebrate the beginning of Book VIII, starting 7/12/2023 7:00(UTC), we will be holding the Book VIII: Ratatoskr and More summoning event and the Book VIII Begins Celebration!

In this New Heroes summoning event, Ratatoskr: Mending Hand is available as a part of the 5★ focus category along with New Heroes from the Fire Emblem Awakening game.

Note: Because Ratatoskr: Mending Hand is a Mythic Hero, she does not appear in normal summoning events. The next time she is scheduled to appear in a summoning event is this month’s Legendary Hero summoning event.

You can make two copies of 5★ Hero Inigo: Flower Picker your ally by completing quests, and there will be Log-In Bonuses from which you can get Dragonflowers and more as part of the Book VIII Begins celebratory events!

Note: Achievement headers/achievements for clearing the main story will not be added for Book VIII and future Books because the maximum number of achievements that can be set in the store will have been reached.

■ A new event, Affinity Auto-Battles, is being added!

A new event where you battle together with Heroes from other worlds, Affinity Auto-Battles, will begin. Enjoy checking your affinity while getting rewards!

Affinity Auto-Battles is an event in which individual Heroes are each dispatched to different worlds to take on missions with the help of other players’ units. The affinity between your forces and the allied team is determined before battles.

Note: Affinity is somewhat mysterious and may not give you results you expect.

The greater your affinity, the more of a stat boost your Heroes will receive in combat! Additionally, an Affinity Bonus will be added to your score. Because battles take place using Auto-Battle, the better the results of your affinity, the greater your advantage in battle.

You can see a small preview of this event in action in the Feh Channel (December 4, 2023) video that was recently released. We hope you take a look!

This event is scheduled to be held for the first time starting 18/12/2023 7:00(UTC).

More details and gameplay tips will be included in notifications leading up to the event.

 

■ The range of Heroes that you can make your allies in Binding Worlds will be expanded

 

You can use the Otherworld Bond item to make Heroes from Ver. 5.11.0 or earlier your allies in Binding Worlds! You can see what Heroes are included within the specific versions by using the Sort and Filter features on the Edit Teams screen.

 

The Ver. 8.0.0 Binding Worlds event is scheduled to begin starting 11/12/2023 7:00(UTC) This event will be the first time that Binding Worlds has been held since Attuned Heroes have made their debut. You will be able to set new Attuned Heroes or Heroes equipped with an Attuned Skill as a proxy. In addition, Heroes who appeared in Ver. 5.11.0 or earlier and who are equipped with an Attuned Skill can be made your ally while having that Attuned Skill.
