Fire Emblem Heroes Turns 3, Introduces Subscription-based Feh Pass

Posted by | February 12, 2020 | Mobile, News | No Comments

Mobile strategy spin-off Fire Emblem Heroes is still getting updates and events three years after its release. During the month of February, Nintendo is hosting several special events to celebrate the anniversary. They’ve also introduced a new subscription service, the awkwardly named Feh Pass.

During the 3rd anniversary, you’ll be able to grab 333 Heroic Grails just by logging into Fire Emblem Heroes. A special summoning event will guarantee a 5 star hero summon from the pool of heroes that were added in 2019.

Other special events include Hero Fests, new quests, Daily Reward Maps, and Daily Bound Hero Battles, all of which can net Orbs and Dragonflowers. Aether Raids will also be available to earn special SP Aether Stones, which can be used to construct a unique 3rd anniversary structure.

Fire Emblem Heroes also now has a subscription service, which Nintendo is calling the Feh Pass. It comes with a rather shocking price: $9.49 per month.

The Feh Pass grants two 5 star Resplendent heroes each month, which include a hero in their normal, and resplendent attire. Resplendent Heroes feature new illustrations, voice acting, and boosted stats. The first Resplendent Hero is Lyn, available now. Starting on February 24, Cordelia will become available.

The Feh Pass also grants access to Special Quests, a re-do turn feature on maps, and the ability to replay the same map for no stamina cost. Kind of sucks that the last two are incredibly helpful features locked behind a paywall, in a game that already features real-money transactions and random loot boxes in the form of hero orbs.

Fire Emblem Heroes is free-to-play on iOS and Android.
