yeah they changed a lot of FE6 character names. Astohl is Astolfo, for instance.

Are you going to backport the new names into your hack? oh also

gamexplain got to play a preview of the game. Nothing that interesting, just the guy saying he liked it, but it confirms Jagen and Raigh.

I am. There are to degrees where I'll point at a name and go "that's dumb I don't like that." Like with Shanna, I didn't like Shanna. But seeing as they used it twice, and they took the time for Lachesis to go back to it from Raquesis. Then there's no point to not using those names. Also a lot of the names are really good. Astolfo being an actual Paladin of Charlemagne is likely what the name was originally going for. Gwendolyn is of course the longform of Wendy. Dieck and Rutger are canon and people can suck it.

I think the only ones that annoyed me was Melady. And I'll probably leave Zelot's 'a' in.

Key thing here is that there's multiple gachas, which contain different character pools. There was also an "appearance rates" button so maybe you can actually judge just how absurdly rare your favorite is

I haven't actually played a gacha game before so I dunno if that's all normal but it struck me as a good sign

No, because I've seen a fan game that changes all the names just to piss people off.

It's called FE6XNA, it's poo poo.

That part doesn't seem to be a huge deal as long as you save up 20 orbs before doing any rolling, which you really ought to do

That's generally how it works in gatcha games yeah. They have special event pools with "rate up" units in which if you pull on the Gatcha and get a high ranking unit you're much more likely to get one of the advertised units.

As for showing the drop rates they actually have to do that due to Japanese gambling laws.

Also other thing I saw in a different video from a guy that got to play the game as well: Basically, when you roll, you spend 5 funpoints get shown 5 orbs of varying colors. The colors represent weapon type. So, like

Red
Red
Blue
Grey
Red

You pick the grey one, you get noted fire emblem character Wrys. You can either leave it at that or you can spend *4* funpoints to select one of the other orbs. So if you wanna grab the blue one, you can do it for cheaper. You can keep doing that until you've grabbed all of them, and the last one you grab from the lot is only 3 funpoints.

So basically, grabbing all of them at once is cheaper than backing out and doing another four rolls. That makes it easier to build up a roster, but harder to hunt for a specific character.

another hands-on video about the game

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zkJvpBoLKxY

lotta pics of people we haven't seen yet and some glimpses of dialogue and stuff

notably, linking your My Nintendo account apparently gives you access to 'special My Nintendo missions' which I'm guessing have special rewards and will cost My Nintendo coins to get access to? they did similar stuff with some bonus content for Miitomo and Super Mario Run so it makes sense

Since the game has a rolling gatcha it seems I want to know how many pulls it takes to get a 5 star guaranteed. That's important for budgeting reasons.

This will be my first mobile game so I'm guessing from context, but it seems that every time you fail to get a good character (whether that means a popular one or a 5-star one we don't know) the chance to get one goes up, until eventually it's 100%.

The release of Fire Emblem Heroes is just 2 days away, but quite a few of the game’s details are still unknown at this point. Thankfully, a couple members of the press got the chance to try out the game for an hour last weekend. Below, we’ve compiled all of the new info from GameXplain’s and Polygon’s preview:


You can view all of a character’s special illustrations on their status screen and listen to their voiced lines

Units have “Assist Skills”, which can be activated when they’re standing next to an ally

Bow users still deal extra damage to flying enemies

Your chances of getting a Hero with a high star count increase each time you don’t get one when Summoning Heroes using Orbs (the game’s gacha system)

If a unit reaches level 20, they can rank up, which increases their star count by 1

The game’s first limited-time event apparently is centered on Lissa

Story missions have several difficulty levels – Normal, Hard and Lunatic, with higher difficulties yielding better rewards, but requiring more Stamina to play

There are different summoning “banners”, which each focus on a different group of Heroes

You can turn off combat animations, portrait cut-ins and voice overs

Special skills need several turns to charge; they are then used automatically next time the character attacks

At any time during a battle, you can spend one Orb to revive and heal all your units – you can also use this to resume a mission if you get a Game Over

There is an auto battle option

Each character has a brief biography that describes their character and which Fire Emblem game they’re from

The Arena uses a different Stamina mechanic called Dueling Swords – you get three Dueling Swords per day, and you need to use one to fight in the Arena. You can use Orbs to refill your Dueling Swords.

You can use Orbs to upgrade your Castle, which is essentially your base – the first upgrade costs 1 Orb and permanently increases all experience gained by 20%

You can also change the design of your castle

If you could pair characters across games, since undoubtedly this game is going to put that thought in people's heads, what would you do?

Personally, I would go Hector/Tiki, because I find the idea of manakete Lilina incredibly awesome for some reason.

I can have moments of... eccentricity and sometimes be quite curious about things. Please forgive me if I do something foolish or rude.
