Fire Emblem Heroes has released an update, bringing the title up to version 6.4.0. The patch notes offer a range of changes to various systems and mechanics, including tweaks to Aether Raids, The Coliseum, new Combat Manuals, and much more.

The full patch notes can be seen below, via Nintendo Everything:
■ The Coliseum is being updated
○ Arena Assault is being updated.
With the season starting 4/12/2022 12:00 p.m.(PT), Arena Assault will be renamed Arena Assault+ and will introduce the following changes.
The tactical retreat feature will be added to Arena Assault+. If you lose a battle or surrender during a chain of battles, the battle will be treated as a tactical retreat up to two times per chain. When a tactical retreat occurs, your chain of wins is not ended, and you can advance to the next battle with your score unchanged. If you reset your chain or start a new one from the beginning, your tactical retreats will once again be available for use. There is no limit to how many times you can use this feature per season.
Dragonflowers will be added to Arena Assault+ rank rewards. In addition to the existing lineup of rewards, you will be able to earn Dragonflowers based on your performance.
What’s more, a chain reward will be added that rewards you with Dragonflowers for your first win, your second win in a row, and your third win in a row each season.
The type of Dragonflowers available as rank rewards and chain rewards will change each season.
