We’re coming up on the one-year anniversary of Fire Emblem Heroes, the gatcha-style mobile game where FE fans throw rainbow-colored orbs into a bag, shuffle them around, and hope to pull out their favorite waifus. But seriously, though, new events and summoning banners have dropped at a steady pace since the February 2, 2017, release date, and Nintendo and Intelligent Systems are gearing up to mark the occasion with the second round of Fire Emblem Heroes Choose Your Legends voting.
Voting works pretty much the same as it did the first time around. Fans can sign in to their My Nintendo account to get 100 points the first time they vote. They can then choose one hero to support, by game title or random selection. Fans get one vote per day, and the site offers rewards for coming back every day in the form of downloadable character wallpapers. Visitors receive them at three, five, and seven votes. Those wallpapers depict a montage of the round one winners (at three votes), Fire Emblem Heroes newcomer Fjorm and her sister Gunnthra (at five votes) and Fjorm vs. Surtr (at seven votes). If you happened to miss day one of voting and still want that last one, be sure to vote every day from now on because the ballot only stays open until January 28 at 7 p.m. PT.
One difference from Fire Emblem Heroes’ CYL round one is that the top spots are not viewable, so voters will have no way of knowing who’s currently in the lead and how close their choices are to winning. Also, Ike, Lucina, Lyn, Roy, and masked Marth are not valid candidates, as the first four already won the last round. Everything else is pretty much the same, and it’s a safe bet that the top ten heroes and heroines will appear in downloadable calendars or some other reward.
