Nintendo has released a minor update to Fire Emblem Heroes, seeing the mobile strategy game now sat on version 1.7.0.
This introduces the chance for players to deepen the bonds between their heroes with a new Ally Support mechanic, that can be built when battling enemies that are level 35 or higher.
When two Heroes that support each other are nearby one another in battle, they will receive a stat boost relating to their Support Rank and whether they are adjacent or one space away from each other.
There’s also Summoner Support that works similarly, although such bond can only be created with one hero.
