Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia

On April 7th, the official guidebook for Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia will be released in Japan. The product page on reveals that this guide will provide the following:

  • System section, with all the basic game mechanics detailed (alternating between the two main characters, class growth, flow of battle, dungeon exploration, village and street base conversations, etc.);
  • Tactics section, covering all the chapters. Includes detailed battle maps with strategies for Normal mode play, tips for Hard mode, list of items you can get from base and village events, dungeon maps, and more;
  • Data section: complete overview of all units, skills, equipment, forging, provisions, and more.

The description also mentions two rather intriguing elements, starting with the “medals” and “renown” from the Data section: what do they refer to? We also have the confirmation that base conversations are also back, and hopefully, we will get more details about them soon.

But the most interesting thing about this guide is that it covers a mysterious Chapter 6, which is brand new: there was no such chapter in the original version of the game. According to the product description for the guide, this extra chapter takes places after the credits. Unfortunately, that’s all we know about it for now!

Also, Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadow of Valentia will also be featured in Famitsu magazine this week. The new article will have details on the three “Pegasus Sisters” (namely: Palla, Katria, and Est), a new character (Linea, from the Rigel Empire, and one of the antagonists), details on dungeon exploration, and more.

Here’s the preview from Famitsu magazine:

Fire Emblem Heroes

Earlier today, the official Twitter account for Fire Emblem Heroes shared some pretty interesting data about the Grand Hero Battle featuring Michalis. The developers listed for the 4 least rare characters players managed to beat the map with:

  • 3 ★ Virion (Level 40)
  • 3 ★ Narcian (Level 40)
  • 4 ★ Tiki (Level 40)
  • 3 ★ Gwendolyn (Level 40)

What’s more, none of these characters had inherited any skill via the Inherit Skill feature, which shows that it really is possible to beat the hardest of maps without using all the advanced tools.

Also, here’s a screenshot of the map for the Grand Hero Battle featuring Navarre:

The developers specify that this screenshots include elements from the next update for Fire Emblem Heroes (such as the ability to swap the starting position of Heroes).
