Thank you for playing the Fire Emblem Heroes game! Here's an update from the Fire Emblem Heroes development team.


We would like to introduce the new features and changes in the Ver. 4.9.0 update.

■ A new event, Frontline Phalanx, is being added


Frontline Phalanx is a new event in which summoners send their support to Heroes in other worlds struggling against the odds.

Faced with an overwhelming force, these Heroes are in desperate need of your help. Provide the Hero of your choice with Icon Frontline Phalanx support.pngsupport to grant them strength. If you're really feeling generous, you can even use a Guardian Shield.pngGuardian Shield to increase their chance of success.

Use the tools at your disposal to save the Heroes from certain defeat!

The first Frontline Phalanx event will begin on . Further details on how to play will be included in the event preview notification.

If you haven't seen the sneak peek included in the Feh Channel broadcast from August 13, be sure to check it out!

■ A feature to change Hero traits is being added


Players will be able to change a Hero's asset or flaw using items called Trait Fruit.pngTrait Fruit.

Tap here for information on traits (assets and flaws).
Fire Emblem Heroes recreates the variation in character growth stats in the Fire Emblem series by assigning stat values that vary slightly between Heroes.


When comparing two of the same Heroes at level 1, one of them may have one more or one less HP, Atk, Spd, Def, or Res. When a particular stat is comparatively higher, it is called an asset. When a particular stat is comparatively lower, it is called a flaw.

There are a total of 21 individual stat arrangements, including the possibility of there being no asset and flaw. When a Hero is summoned, they have an equal chance of appearing with any one of these 21 stat arrangements (excluding Heroes from the Free 5★ Summon, who are always summoned with no asset and flaw).

After a Hero's level has been raised to 40, their asset stat will be three or four points higher than other instances of the same Hero, and their flaw stat will be three or four points lower. (These values are predetermined for each specific Hero.)



Players may choose the combination of asset and flaw at their discretion. The traits of any Hero may be changed in this way, including those of Forma allies obtained with Forma Souls.

100 Trait Fruit are required to change a Hero's traits one time. These items may be obtained from the following in-game activities:

Activity Reward Type
Arena Tier Rewards
Resonant Battles Interval Rewards
Mjölnir's Strike Tier Rewards
Forging Bonds Friendship Rewards


Trait Fruit will appear as rewards in the Arena and Resonant Battles from the season starting on , and in Mjölnir's Strike and Forging Bonds after the release of Ver. 4.9.0.

What's more, you can get 100 Trait Fruit right away by completing quests celebrating the debut of the Frontline Phalanx event. Don't miss this chance to get your hands on enough Trait Fruit to change your favorite Hero's traits!

Notes:
・ Changing a Hero's traits can also affect how their stats will increase when merged and when using Dragonflowers. (The value of the stat total will be unchanged.)
・ Depending on the Hero's level when their traits are changed, the amount that their stats change may vary—but their stats at level 40 will match any other instance of that Hero with the same traits also at level 40.

■ The lineup of Limited-Time Combat Manuals is being updated
