Note: To access the Weapon Refinery, you must clear Book I, Chapter 13 in the main story and then clear the second Intermission map, The Rite of Blades.

Aether Raids and Aether Resort have been updated

○ Some structures have had their level cap increased.

・ Bolt Tower (O/D): up to level 7
Escape Ladder (O): up to level 5

Note: Placing a level 5 Escape Ladder (O) will allow a lost battle's Aether cost to be returned up to five times per season. It's a worthwhile investment!

○ Aether Resort has been updated.

・ New items are now available from the field.

You can now grow a new ingredient, tomatoes, and collect spices and gourmet spices as provisions.



Once the crop comes in, be sure to drop by the Dining Hall and see what new delightful dishes your intrepid chefs can cook up!


・ Three new songs have been added to the Concert Hall: "Thracia 776 Begins" from the Fire Emblem: Thracia 776 game, "Quiet Days" from the Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance game, and "A Promise" from the Fire Emblem: Three Houses game.

■ Category icons have been added to summoning screens

To help summoners discern the type of summoning event easily at a glance, category icons have been added to each event's summoning screen.


Each icon and its corresponding summoning event category is shown below. Keep an eye on these icons as you decide which summoning events to focus on!

Mjölnir's Strike has been updated

○ Some mechanisms have had their level cap increased.

Nifl Icicle: up to level 4

■ Additional Heroes via Heroic Grails

The following Heroes are available to summon using Heroic Grails:

Gangrel: Plegia's Mad King
Rhys: Gentle Basker

■ Other Changes

・ With the season starting on , new maps will replace existing ones in the Arena and Arena Assault. (These maps will appear in both Arena and Arena Assault but during different seasons.)

・ The user interface has been adjusted to make better use of empty screen space (if available). If empty space appeared along the top and bottom of your screen before the update, this space will now display useful information, such as the amount of Divine Codes in your possession or the turn number and phase during battle. Depending on the size of the screen, you may also see the stock of items recovered from thieves while playing Resonant Battles.

・ In Resonant Battles, tapping on the Edit Teams button will automatically apply a filter for bonus titles.

・ When prompted to download data, the download status and estimated time required will be displayed.



・ Links to Learn with Sharena! articles have been added to the Battle, Misc., and Heroes' Path screens. These articles contain useful information on Heroes and skills, so if you're curious about something specific or just want to brush up on game mechanics, be sure to check them out!

The following known issues have been addressed:

・ If a player begins a series of Tempest Trial battles using the Auto-Start feature, suspends it, then resumes playing using the Auto-Battle feature, the game will not transition to the next map once the current map has been cleared, despite Continuous Auto being enabled.

・ In Resonant Battles, the skills equipped by certain enemies may differ depending on the operating system of the player's device.

・ An issue may arise when obtaining seasonal rewards between the end of a particular Resonant Battles season and the start of the following season in which a player's interval is shown as "Interval: 1" regardless of their actual interval.

・ Visiting the Current Standing screen for Resonant Battles using Ver. 4.7.0 after the Ver. 4.8.0 update has been released may cause the game to crash. Updating the game to Ver. 4.8.0 will resolve this issue.

■ Regarding Support for Android Devices

After an update planned for September 2020, Fire Emblem Heroes will require Android OS 4.4 or higher to run on Android devices. After the update is released, players using Android OS 4.3 or lower will no longer be able to download, update, or access the game.

If you will be affected by this change, please consider updating your device's Android OS to version 4.4 or higher if possible.

That's all the news about the update!

We hope you continue to enjoy playing Fire Emblem Heroes.
