Thank you for playing Fire Emblem Heroes. Here's an update from the Fire Emblem Heroes development team about the new additions for ver. 2.0.0:


■ Book II of the Story Has Begun

Update Book II Poster.png

Cloaked in flame, he crosses the sea—unquenchable, insatiable, undying flame.

Trees fall, mountains burn, steam billows. The seas are swallowed.

Stars become cinders, and the moon falls from the sky.

The saga of the Fire Emblem Heroes game proceeds to the next chapter...

Book II of Fire Emblem Heroes has arrived!

Get Fjorm: Princess of Ice by clearing Chapter 1: Part 5 of Book II.

Chapters will continue to be added, so work together with the other members of the Order of Heroes and proceed through the tale!

Those who have not yet completed Book I can still access Book II, so we suggest that any players who haven't cleared Book I yet obtain Fjorm right away and then proceed with the story of Book I.


■ Legendary Heroes and Blessings Have Been Added

Legendary Heroes—Heroes with new abilities—have been added. The first Legendary Hero is Fjorm: Princess of Ice, who can be obtained in the main story.

Legendary Heroes have one of four legendary elements, including Water, Wind, Earth, and Fire, that resonate with the corresponding Blessing to give Heroes strength.


Legendary Hero Abilities

When you make a Legendary Hero into an ally, you will also obtain a Blessing item that corresponds with the Legendary Hero's element—one of four possibilities.

Guide Blessings 2.png

Here's a list of the benefits given to a Hero with this item:

  • SP earned in battle will be doubled.
  • In the corresponding season, if the Hero is deployed along with the Legendary Hero, they will receive stat bonuses.

Example: During the Water season, a Hero with a Water blessing deployed with Fjorm: Princess of Ice will get HP+3 and Spd+3.

Each season will feature two of the four elements: Water, Wind, Earth, and Fire. Seasons will change at the same time as Arena seasons.

Important Information about Blessings

  • Once a Blessing item is used on an ally, it cannot be removed from that ally.
  • A blessing can be changed for another, but the first blessing will be lost when the second is set.
  • There won't be many chances to get Blessing items, so think hard about who to give them to.

Fjorm: Princess of Ice will be available from November 27, 2017 at 7:00 AM UTC and will also be part of a Legendary Hero summoning event.

For some devices running iOS, the detailed explanations that appear when you tap on a Hero's name or a skill icon currently do not display properly. If this occurs, please check for explanations on the Hero's detailed profile page instead. We're working on this, and appreciate your patience until it's resolved.


That's all for the ver. 2.0.0 update! We appreciate your continued support of Fire Emblem Heroes.
