If you’re anything like me you’ve been playing Fire Emblem Heroes obsessively since its launch. I bet you’ve got a few units you’d like to upgrade into four or five star versions too, huh? With the promise of higher stat growths, access to more and better skills, and the feeling of prestige and power that comes with unlocking their potential there’s really only one thing keeping it from being a common practice.

I speak, of course, of Hero Feathers.

This resource is comparatively elusive in Fire Emblem Heroes, and when it takes 20,000 of them to take a character from four to five stars that’s a little unfortunate. Sure, you get a few every day from your characters and friends. With the first season ending I even scored about 3,000 from the game’s arena. But as is the returns just don’t feel high enough.

Nintendo must have seen this coming, as they decided to run a global Twitter campaign centered on these questionably distributed quills. Within a twenty four hour period, if the below tweet is Retweeted 10,000 times then every player will receive 10,000 Hero Feathers as an in-game present.

Normally I’d plead with all of you to get on it, because I really (really) want more feathers. But the thing is, that globally this goal hasn’t just been met, but absolutely shattered. If you check the numbers above, the American tweet is already at almost three times the stated, global goal at the time of this writing. Nintendo of Europe’s is building up steam as well, but the real standout is Nintendo of Japan’s. We may very well triple this goal in the states, but Japan has almost met it seven times over!

I still think all of you should Retweet this though, just to show that these sorts of promos should happen more often. Look forward to your feather present sometime in the future, and keep enjoying Fire Emblem Heroes along with us here at Nintendo Wire.
