Heroes: Narcian Returns, New Banner Hints, & Maintenance Update!

Get ready for some new excitement in Fire Emblem Heroes! Lots of updates and new challenges are in story, starting today. Narcian is the next character to get a Great Hero Battle Revival, and he’s ready and waiting for your challenge. If you didn’t earn both copies of him before, now is the time to try again!

Like other GHB Revivals, Narcian also comes with a new series of quests. Defeating him and his map under certain conditions can give you an additional copies of his hero, plus up to three Orbs! You can find a breakdown of the new quests below.

@FE_Heroes_JP tweeted some hints yesterday about next week’s upcoming banner. Matching the datamine, it appears that the next banner will feature some female characters as brides! The one on the left definitely appears to be Lyn, but the right Bride is more open to interpretation.

The tweet also confirmed that the “special log-in bonus” will be returning with the new banner! Hopefully this means that players can look forward to 2 daily Orbs again.

Lastly, the Heroes Notification Screen has sent out a warning about upcoming maintenance. The maintenance will begin at 11:00 pm UTC on 29 May and is scheduled to last three hours. Times given are approximate.

    Narcian, the bane of my existence! I couldn’t get him on Hard mode of my very first Grand Hero Battle! And now, I will finally have my revenge! This time, he is mine!

  • Kazuya

    Narcian is annoying. Those damn horses are a pain in the arse.

  • Kaydh

    I can’t tell who the other figure is. My first guess was Lucina and this is the special costume variants for the Choose your Hero Winners and Runner ups. But i don’t see any indicators.

    Side note, is Lyn wielding a lollipop?

    • CombatMagi

      I was just about to post the same thing actually so does that mean Ike and Roy will be “grooms”?

    • Kaydh

      I was way off, that’s Charlotte from fates.

  • MetalGear Lamia

    The left girl is likely Lyn and the right is probably Lucina or someone else.

    • O.H. X-1990

      And by “someone else” you mean “Eirika”?

      • MetalGear Lamia


        • O.H. X-1990

          I guess we were both wrong. It was Charlotte all along. (Hey, that kind of rhymed).

      • Stranger

        Turns out it’s Charlotte. Ready to spoon everybody.

  • Alm

    Lyn seems like a definite for the one on the left, the one on the right I think is either Camilla, Lucina, or Eirika, of which I’m leaning towards Eirika, as Lucina and Camilla already have added in artwork and Eirika did have a bride artwork in awakening.

  • Jonah J

    Right girl is probably Cordelia. Left is Lyn.

    • Lucian Crowe

      I almost thought it was Cordelia since her hair is very long but we will see. That also could just be a part of the dress it’s hard to tell with a sillouette.

  • O.H. X-1990

    At last, my revenge against Narcian is finally complete! I have claimed my victory!

  • Stranger

    Here’s the reveal video for the new Bride Banner.

    Caeda, Charlotte, Cordelia, and Lyn.

    May I also note that this is the best banner ever.

  • MetalGear Lamia

    Looks like its Lyn, Charlotte, Cordelia and Caeda even though I hate the pandering this feels like at least it makes sense for these characters except Lyn plus its an actual class I’ll likely pass this one probably.
