Tons of details about Fire Emblem Heroes version 2.0.0 – official overview

The new update for Fire Emblem Heroes went live earlier today. It encompasses a whole bunch of content and features such as Book II, the Weapon Refinery, Legendary Hero abilities, expanded Barracks, and much more. That’s on top of other changes, improvements, and adjustments.

■ Book II of the Story Has Begun

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.

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.

The current season is displayed on the upper-left corner of the menu.

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 11/27/17 at 11:00 p.m.(PT) and will also be part of a Legendary Hero summoning event.

■ Level Up Your Skills with the Weapon Refinery
Strengthen the weapon skills of your Heroes! 

After clearing Chapter 13, Diabolical Bloodline, in the main story and then clearing the Intermission chapter The Rite of Blades, Weapon Refinery can be found under Advanced Growth.

・Durandal → Blazing Durandal
・Killing Edge+ → Slaying Edge+

As shown above, existing weapon skills can now be refined into high-level weapon skills.

Also, some weapons can be strengthened with special effects, such as increasing a Hero’s stats or other abilities.

Refining weapons requires Arena Medals, Refining Stones, or Divine Dew.

You will be able to get Arena Medals and Refining Stones from events, quests, and the Arena, so play a lot of different modes and do quests and events if you want to strengthen your favorite Hero.

Important Information about the Weapon Refinery
Divine Dew can be obtained by refining weapons.
Arena Medals can be obtained by winning in the Arena. The number of medals will be based on score.
If there are multiple ways to strengthen a weapon, you will be able to change the skill in Equip Skills.

■ High-Level Skills for Staves
Some staff skills and healing skills now have high-level skills added that you can learn at 5★.

Heroes who obtain the base skills naturally can use SP to learn the high-level skills. Heroes who obtain the skills through Inherit Skill will not be able to learn the high-level skills.

■ Cooldown Lowered on Some Special Skills
To make a broader range of Special skills more useful to players, some Special cooldowns have been lowered by 1.

■ Barracks Get Bigger
All users will have their Barracks expanded by 100. Even those who have maxed their Barracks at 1,000 will now have room for 1,100. The max will now be 1,100.

■ Arena Scores Have Been Adjusted
Arena scores for Beginner and Intermediate levels have been adjusted to match Arena Assault. As well as making high-level rewards easier to earn, Arena Medals for use in the Weapon Refinery are also easier to obtain at Beginner and Intermediate difficulties.

■ Arena Assault Rankings Have Been Adjusted
The number of players who receive high-level rewards has increased.

Starting from the season beginning 11/27/17 at 11:00 p.m.(PT), the following changes will be made:

Before Change After Change Rank Reward
1 to 100 1 to 1,000 30 Sacred Coins, 30 Refining Stones, 5,000 Hero Feathers
101 to 1,000 1,001 to 3,000 25 Sacred Coins, 25 Refining Stones, 4,000 Hero Feathers
1,001 to 5,000 3,001 to 5,000 22 Sacred Coins, 22 Refining Stones, 3,000 Hero Feathers

 

■ Rewards for My Nintendo Have Been Added
Hero Feathers have been added to My Nintendo rewards. Redeem 100 My Nintendo Platinum Points for 2,000 Hero Feathers, up to five times. (Note: You must be a My Nintendo member to redeem points and obtain these rewards.)

■ Various Other Improvements
・Stamina required for Story Maps has decreased. No maps will require more than 10 stamina.
・On screens with status details, the areas with weapons, support skills, and Special skills will each be displayed in different colors.
・It will be easier to tell which summoning events can be accessed without using Orbs for the first summon.
・An effect has been added to combat animations when 0 damage is taken.
・The menus for Training Tower, Arena, and Voting Gauntlet modes have new background imagery.
・Some skill descriptions have been updated to better reflect their functions in-game.
・Traditional Chinese has been added to Select Language.

■ Known issues
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.

Marvel Heroes publisher Gazillion shuts down after Disney severs ties

Gazillion Entertainment shut down on Wednesday just ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday, according to Kotaku. The move to lay off all staff came after Disney severed ties with the company and announced that Gazillion’s Marvel Heroes game would shut down.

The game was originally due to shut on December 31, but the company also got hit with a lot of requests for refunds, Kotaku said. Gazillion didn’t make an announcement, but numerous employees relayed what they were told.

The employees said they are not being paid severance or paid time off, and that their medical insurance ends next week. In a statement, Disney had said earlier, “We regret to inform our Marvel Heroes fans that we have ended our relationship with Gazillion Entertainment, and that the Marvel Heroes games will be shut down. We would like to sincerely thank the players who joined the Marvel Heroes community, and will provide any further updates as they become available.”

It’s a sad Thanksgiving for those associated with the company, which has had a rich history. The San Mateo, Calif.-based Gazillion had legendary ambitions as a maker of massively multiplayer online role-playing games.

Rob Hutter, the former head of Revolution Ventures, founded Gazillion with Doom co-creator John Romero in 2005 in an effort to create MMO games that could rival Blizzard’s World of Warcraft. Over time, Hutter raised more than $250 million for Gazillion, and he got the deal for a Marvel MMO in 2009, inheriting that license from Cryptic Studios, whose Marvel game was cancelled in 2007. MMOs proved to be hard to make and World of Warcraft was the toughest of rivals.

Romero’s own game was canceled and his Slipgate Ironworks division was shut down. About a year after that, Romero left. The industry also shifted from premium subscription games to free-to-play online games with microtransactions. That prompted big changes at Gazillion, which at its peak had more than 350 employees.

David Brevik, co-creator of Diablo and one of the former Blizzard North leaders, spent 6.5 years at the company. In early 2011, Brevik was named president and chief operating officer of Gazillion. Shortly after that, John Needham, former head of Cryptic Studios, replaced Hutter as CEO in 2011. One of the games that Gazillion shipped was Marvel Super Hero Squad, built by the now-defunct Amazon Society studio in Seattle. Brevik’s game was renamed Marvel Heroes and it launched in 2013.

Around that time, David Dohrmann, a board member who was then at Roth Capital Partners, and investors at Oak Investment Partners recapitalized the company, meaning they took control and put more money into the firm. Brevik became CEO.

Marvel Heroes was buggy at launch, and the developers had to fix it. They relaunched it in 2014, and its average Metacritic rating rose from 58 out of 100 to 81 after a number of key adjustments to content and the pricing model. The company did a further update and renamed Marvel Heroes as Marvel Heroes 2015. The game was a moderate success in its new form, but Gazillion laid off some staff in September 2015. Brevik resigned as CEO in January 2016, and Dohrmann took over.

Dohrmann, who later changed his name to David Von Dorman, attempted to reboot the company and launched the PlayStation 4 version of the Marvel Heroes — dubbed Marvel Heroes Omega — earlier this year. Von Dorman said early results were good, but apparently the players didn’t stick around.

I interviewed each of Gazillion’s leaders over the years, and it was sad to see the company’s decline. Sorry to deliver a downer on Thanksgiving, but this is one of those cases where I cover a company from cradle to grave.
