Fire Emblem Heroes Smartphone Game's Book III Trailer Introduces Realm of the Dead
posted on by Karen Ressler
Nintendo revealed a trailer for Book III of its Fire Emblem Heroes smartphone game as part of a "Feh Channel" presentation on Monday.
Book III will begin with the Askran Kingdom at peace, until the arrival of invaders from Hel, the "Realm of the Dead." New characters include the Realm of the Dead's princess Eir, its ruler Hel, and generals Líf and Thrasir. The first two chapters will be available after the current maintenance period on Monday. New players can begin with Book III.
Those who complete the first chapter of Book III will receive a five-star Eir as a free unit. She is classified as a light-type "Mythic Hero," a new kind of playable character. Like Legendary Heroes, Mythic Heroes will have different types, but instead of "fire, water, earth, and air" the types will be "light, dark, astra, and anima." These new types will be part of their own seasonal cycles, which will be tied to the Aether Raids game mode.
The presentation also announced the upcoming addition of beast units, including Tibarn from Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn.
Finally, the presentation announced that the game will introduce a new item called "first summon tickets." These can be exchanged for one free summon per summoning session (normally five orbs). Tickets will be tied to certain summoning events and cannot be used after the event is over. They will be available as rewards for Forging Bonds events.
Book II launched last November.
