Without a doubt, Fire Emblem Heroes has been one of the most lucrative and popular mobile games Nintendo has released. It allows players to get a taste of the basic gameplay elements of the series, while also engaging in gacha elements that allow them to pull heroes and popular characters from across the franchise. The game has gotten consistent updates since release, and the latest Book V story update will be dropping later today.
Here’s a quick description of the update, and what you can expect:
“The latest update to the Fire Emblem Heroes smartphone saga is arriving tonight, and it’s delivering a blast of steampunk-inspired energy to this classic tale of sword and sorcery. The realm of Niðavellir has discovered a way to fuse magic and science into something they call seiðjárn, and it’s safe to say you’ve never seen a realm like this before in the Fire Emblem Heroes universe!
In addition to some intriguing characters, Book V also introduces new mechanical armor, known as Gullinbursti, which is used by the people of Niðavellir to do battle. If you’re eager to see some of this new content in action, even novice summoners can jump right into Book V’s story. By completing Chapter 1 of Book V, you will also earn a new Mythic Hero for free, Reginn, princess of Nioavellir.”
During the active period, players who log on can also receive 20 orbs as login bonuses. You can also earn Aether Stones by playing Book V quests, which can be used to unlock new bonus structures in the game.
