Heroes: Preview Trailer for World of Holy War Banner + Sacred Coin Quests!

Prepare for new characters from Genealogy of the Holy War to appear in Fire Emblem Heroes! Nintendo Mobile has just shared a preview trailer for the latest World of Holy War Banner! Check it out here:

Three characters will be appearing as new 5★ heroes in the banner: Sigurd, Deirdre, and Tailtiu. Each of them comes with at least one new weapon or skill. You can read a full listing of all units’ skills and abilities below.

A new paralogue story, also called World of Holy War, also comes out at the same time. A fourth Genealogy character, Ayra, appears in a screenshot of the map. Perhaps she’ll be a reward in an upcoming Tempest Trials?

The World of Holy War Banner and its paralogue will both go live on Monday, 16 October, at 7:00am UTC.

Sacred Coin Quests also available starting today! Defeat foes using different colours and types of units to earn Sacred Coins and Great Badges. Both items are useful to forge and upgrade Sacred Seals in the new Sacred Forge. You can see the full quest listing below.

Additionally, we’ve just entered the final round of The Blood of the Dragons Voting Gauntlet! Ninian and Female Corrin have both advanced to the finals, which will end on Sunday the 15th at 3:59am UTC.
