Heroes: New Special Heroes Teaser Image!

@FE_Heroes_JP has just given us a hint for the new banner coming up this Friday for Fire Emblem Heroes! Can you guess who we might be getting?

The accompanying text with the image specifically uses the term “Special Heroes”. Additionally, the twitter account shared the same type of silhouette teaser image for the Bridal Blessings banner in May. As such, it’s almost certain that this new banner will contain more limited heroes. What theme are you hoping to see?

The new banner will go live this Friday, 29 September, at 7:00am UTC. We will likely get a preview trailer for the new heroes the day before, if not sooner. The tweet also confirmed that we will get another log-in bonus again to celebrate the new heroes!

    on the left we have nohrian aura (from conquest chapter where she was in the opera) and on the right it looks to be shigure due to the pendant’s shape matching azura’s pendant. so basically staff azura and possibly red flier shigure

    • mrkisukes

      And like with the bridal banner, there will be more in the banner as only 2 were fore…’shadowed’ then as well.

      • speedster

        just that some people would take it at face value due to new players introduced to the game way after the bridal banner. i’ll delete it if it seems too stupid to mention

    • MetalGear Lamia

      Strange since this will be the first fates 2nd gen sadly not a fan of him at all but Azura hell yes!!!

    • FlamingSaber

      I think this might be the Halloween Banner Teaser, Follow the Pole of what appears to be Azura’s Lance to the top left corner, and it appears to be a Scythe.

    • dmurr

      Shigure will definitely have a tome, looking at right below the pendant shape is book pages. It looks like Azura still has a lance though.

  • dmurr

    Well I guess this was the other projects voice work Rena Strober did that wasn’t Warriors..

  • Sisyphe

    I still expect there to be an exclusive Halloween banner, so I think I’m going to save for that one, unless something revealed here really wows me

    • FlamingSaber

      In the top left corner of what appears to be Azura’s Lance seems to be a Scythe, so it probably halloween banner, Maybe she the grim reaper or some other monster with a scythe.

      • TheBraveGallade

        It would be nice if she was still a dancer and the scythe was classified as an axe cause a green dancer doesn’t exist.

    • speedster

      if you follow her hair from top to bottom then you can see it’s her hair, not a scythe.

      • FlamingSaber

        Possibly, however if it is the Halloween banner i wouldn’t be surprised if that was part of a scythe, being a common occurrence as a weapon used by monsters and demons. however if its her hair then it could simply be a Nohrian Banner, maybe certain Hoshidan characters dressed as nohrians for Halloween. Also more on just the speculating side, but i wonder if the other 2 chars in the banner are Male Corrin and Female Kana. going with the theme that parents taking their children out at night for Halloween.

        • speedster

          that would make sense. but corrin… can’t i have another female one

          • FlamingSaber

            Its just a guess, 1 male parent and child 1 female parent and child. they can honestly pull Female corrin out and i wouldn’t care if they did that.

          • speedster

            let’s hope so

          • FlamingSaber

            Granted this teaser ruins my wish for having a Halloween Lucina is a Pikachu onesie

          • Sisyphe

            Honestly, I think I want Grim Reaper Azura more

          • Goodperson25

            What type of weapon (and so on) do you have in mind for this idea? Thunder tomes on their own is somewhat redundant with bunny Lucina sadly. (But then I don’t see a shortage of amazing mounts to draw on)

          • FlamingSaber

            I mean Pikachu theme Lucina would have to Be a red tome certainly, Thunderbolt would clearly be the tome, or possibly a axe lucina wielding Pikachu’s tail, you can get creative on what you can think for that but sadly that isnt happening ;-;

          • Goodperson25

            Thunder tomes are blue, sorry I just can’t see past that. Oh well, isn’t happening so sadness it is.

          • FlamingSaber

            yeah i was half asleep with crippling depression,caused by no pikachu Lucina, when i wrote that

        • Sisyphe

          I don’t think THIS is the Halloween banner (though better for my orbs if so), but I do think there will be a Halloween banner

          • FlamingSaber

            Hoshidans dressed up as Nohrians would still be considered Halloween by modern day standards, just like if it was Lucina in a Pikachu onesie. Yes i want that, and i want it now, 220 orbs ready if that’s a thing

  • James Richardson III

    Maybe it’s a Mirage Tokyo Sessions banner?

    • Kneekicker

      Given what Reinhardt did for Thracia 776’s popularity, some #TMS characters would be bloody fantastic (provided they’re OP enough to be meme-ed like Reinhardt).

      Don’t think it’s this one though. Nobody in #TMS wears a veil or pendant and the person on the left looks way too much like Azura.

      • FlamingSaber

        to add to that they are kinda consistent with the hair styles when it comes to characters in any banners, the only exception of not having the same or very similar hair style is the characters that are both Male and Female, like corrin

  • FlamingSaber

    I wonder if they would do a Oktoberfest Banner in the Future, i can imagine a few chars in lederhosen. But i doubt that, that kinda banner is coming anytime soon.

  • mrkisukes

    This is most likely just a autumn based banner (first 2 weeks of October), and the anticipate Halloween banner will be afterwards and last until the end of October; banners typically lasted only 2 weeks so this would make sense.

    • Zog58

      Perhaps, though that would trivialize that leak we heard about a Genealogy banner this month.

      • mrkisukes

        Never heard about the Genealogy banner leak, though it would seem a bit odd not to have a Halloween banner and sticking popular character (especially females) into attractive costumes or straight up pulling from the Japanese exclusive DLC from Fates that features characters in Halloween-esk attire …or they might just combine autumn and Halloween into one theme for this month.

        I’m just excited to see new characters and hope I don’t get screwed over like I have with many of the past banners and not get any (Sacred Stones, Crimean, Nohrian Summer).

  • Larverto

    I personally don’t think it would be a Halloween banner, it seems too early for that.

    • FlamingSaber

      Certain special banners in the past such as the summer banners have lasted the entire month because you only got that one chance to get the banner, and will never get that chance again, at least to our knowledge, to pull from it again. So it being too early for that isn’t the best argument i’ve seen against this being the Halloween banner or not

  • Fallen Crow

    Obviously this is Ryoma and Xander bridal blessings banner

    • FlamingSaber

      Obviously the other 2 characters are gonna be Wrys and Hector

      • Fallen Crow

        My thoughts exactly!

  • Mary Robinson

    I really hope it’s both Azura and Shigure! Both are in my top 10 favorite FE characters of all time and Shigure is my Birthright husbando. I’ll be a bit sad if he’s not in his cannon outfit, but I’ll be so stoked to finally have him in Heroes!
