Heroes: Eirika, Ephraim, Seliph, and Julia Coming Soon!

Fire Emblem Heroes director Shingo Matsushita made a special guest appearance on today’s Fire Emblem Cipher livestream. Alongside Cipher news, which will be covered in depth in a later post, Matsushita made a surprise announcement…

Seliph and Julia from Genealogy of the Holy War and Eirika and Ephraim from The Sacred Stones will be coming to Heroes! Although no firm details were given, we were greeted with these two shots of the characters’ in-game artwork.

@FE_Heroes_JP later confirmed the announcement, stating that the characters would be coming in a few days. Since the two current Summoning Focus character groups will expire on February 15th, these four may be part of a new Focus group introduced at that time.

    I need to save up my orbs.

    Aaaargh, and I STILL don’t have Marth and I’m running out of Orbs for the game to give me. I guess I can keep rolling red, though, since he and Eirika are both red units, but I don’t like the odds going down.

  • I suspect these will be new focus characters after the current rotation ends. Here’s hoping they add more chapters for more orb opportunities. I’ve only got 3 chapters left and I still need to finish the castle XP upgrades.

    What about Amelia?

    Shit. I still need a Lucina and I only have the stamina-killing Lunatic chapters to get more orbs for just one more round of summoning.

    Wish there was an option to trade in characters of equivalent star value. I don’t see myself using Roy very often.

    Also- although I don’t know Genealogy- the artwork for those two and the twins is fucking top-notch. Eirika and Epraim are some damned fancy mofos, here.

    Well, it looks like the current banner is gonna end up soon, and I only got my 5-star Marth, nobody else, because half of my units are not the ones I hoped for, and they’re all 3-star units! So, I might as well say goodbye to Young Tiki, Roy, Lyn, Robin, Lucina, Takumi, and Camilla, they’ll never be seen again. …This isn’t fair, half of my units suck! Lucky bastards having these special units before me!

      If Heroes is gonna be like other mobile games, they’re probably gonna cycle through some characters later on.

      Do not give up hope.
