Heroes: “Bite of Flame” Invites Summoners to a Flame Tribe Festival

From 7th September 2022, Special Heroes attending a Flame Tribe festival will be available in the “Bite of Flame” summoning event.

Note: You can check out the Japanese version of this trailer here.

The featured Heroes are Lyn (Blazing Blade), Múspell (Heroes), Rinkah (Fates) and Harmonized Tana and Peony (Heroes x The Sacred Stones).

In addition, Mordecai will be available from the Tempest Trials+ event, which begins at the same time. He’s a Green Beast Infantry with the following skills:

Weapon: Fiery Fang – Grants Def+3. At start of combat, if unit’s HP >= 25%, grants Atk/Def+6 to unit during combat, inflicts penalty on foe’s Atk/Def during combat = 20% of unit’s Def at start of combat, and foe cannot make a follow-up attack.
At start of turn, if unit is adjacent to only beast or dragon allies or if unit is not adjacent to any ally, unit transforms (otherwise, unit reverts).
If unit transforms, grants Atk+2, deals +7 damage when Special triggers, and neutralizes effects that grants “Special cooldown charge +X” to foe or inflict “Special cooldown charge -X” on unit.
This skill can only be equipped by its original unit.
Assist: Smite
A: Fort. Def/Res 2
C: Atk/Def Gap 3

Furthermore, you can obtain the Spd/Def Form 1 and Spd/Res Oath 1 Sacred Seals.

Fire Emblem “Castle Conversations” Returns with Joe Zieja & Erica Mendez

About a year and a half ago, the Western branch of Nintendo and Fire Emblem Heroes produced a Castle Conversations video, featuring multiple FE voice actors, as a parallel to the Japanese Roundtable videos.

While the 5th Roundtable video came out last week, we haven’t seen another Castle Conversations. Until now that is!

Volume 2 of Castle Conversations features Joe Zieja (voice of Claude, Canas and Jamke) and Erica Mendez (voice of Bernadetta and also the recent Legendary Deirdre).

Not actual game footage!

Interestingly, during the Erica Mendez section, Fehnix asks her to voice both Deirdre and also young Shannan in a scene from Genealogy of the Holy War. Since the game hasn’t been officially localised, this is probably the closest we’ll get for now.

This wouldn’t be the first time they showed off footage not from the games; in the first Castle Conversations, they seemingly showed pre-release footage from Three Houses. While this hasn’t been officially confirmed, apparently thanibomb (who leaked various Three Houses info) agrees with this.
