Heroes: Preview Trailer for Children of Fate Banner + New Monthly Quests & Voting Gauntlet Preview!

Another Summoning Focus will be arriving soon in Fire Emblem Heroes! Nintendo Mobile has released a new preview trailer for the upcoming Children of Fate banner. Check it out below!

The banner contains new 5★ heroes for three of the children units from Fire Emblem Fates: Soleil, Shiro, and Siegbert. Each comes with a new weapon and at least one other new skill. Check out their details below! The banner will be available starting on Monday, 4 December.

Additionally, the trailer contains a teaser for one other child of fate that will be releasing soon: Rhajat. Rhajat does not appear in this banner, instead making her debut in one of two banners for the upcoming Enduring Love Voting Gauntlet.

The other three characters that will appear in this banner along with Rhajat are Tharja, Faye, and Priscilla. We don’t yet know who the other four characters in the gauntlet will be. Both banners will be available starting tomorrow, 2nd December, with the Gauntlet itself starting on the 6th after the Tempest Trials have concluded.

Finally, a new month also means new monthly quests! 3 new December Quests are available in game, waiting to reward you with Orbs, Hero Feathers, and other goodies. Check out the full quest listing below.

  • Theroonco

    Why are we getting November Quests in December? 😛

    • speedster

      Typo, I guess

  • MetalGear Lamia

    I’ll pass none of them I like I’ll wait for the inevitable Ophelia, Female Kana, Midori, Selkie and Velouria(when beasts gets added) getting in definitely later down for these 4 unless I accidentally get them.

    • Diovani Estivalet

      In my opinion, we will see Male Kana first… Or at least both in the same banner. Because they always use Female Corrin to represent Fates’s Avatar. So… Female Avatar… Male child.

      • MetalGear Lamia

        No they dont both are represented by faction like in the cover also screw Male Kana blech…..

  • Laggalot101

    I like that they are communicating the fact that Rhajat is on a seperate banner ahead of time, unlike what they did with Ayra. Appreciated. It seems we’ve been heard.

    I am curious, though… we still have absolutely no signs of a potential GHB or TT unit. Any ideas that would fit with the Fates Kids theme? And for the GHB in particular, someone who’d make sense to actually get a GHB? I mean, giving Forrest a GHB, for instance, would just seem weird to me…

    • Sisyphe

      Are the GHBs usually thematic with the banner? I don’t remember. Honestly, I hope they don’t give us a Fates-related GHB, but they have plenty of options if they wanted to…Hans, Iago, Arete, Mikoto, Sumeragi, Scarlet, Flora, etc…I don’t believe you had to fight any of the children to recruit them. Of course, I’d prefer to see them go back to the Grado generals (Caellach, sword wyvern Glen, green mage Selena, or Duessel), or at least finish the Fangs and give us Linus.

      • Laggalot101

        I find that they usually are. Clarisse and Legion GHB’s happened alongside the New Mystery banner. Valter came right after the Sacred Stones banner. And most recently, Arvis’s GHB happened right after the Genealogy gen 1 banner happened. They’ve been pretty consistent about that ever since Legion’s GHB. So yes, it seems likely to me that we’d get a Fates-based GHB. If it can be tied into Fates-kids specifically, all the better, though that might be tricky.

        On the note of the kids, the ones you had to fight as an enemy unit before recruiting them were Rhajat (who’s obviously disqualified for a GHB here), Percy and Nina. Not sure how strong their odds would be, but I’d say they’re possible.

        • Sisyphe

          Fair enough. I have to imagine they’ll break that trend here though, or else wait for the next banner. I agree Percy and Nina are possible, but I just don’t see it. I might have thought they’d give us Siegbert or Shiro that way, to reference Heir of Fates (or whatever the DLC was called), but I guess not

      • Shenai

        What I wouldn’t give for Glen…
        Selena would also be really nice.

        None of Fates’ enemies have been particularly memorable for me.

        • Sisyphe

          Well, I found the best enemies were the other lords, so there isn’t a GHB option there obviously. Otherwise, they were just boring or randomly evil or both. I’m not a big fan of Selena’s archetype, but if they made her a green tome, I’d be all for it

      • Goodperson25

        Yeah Grado Generals would be awesome. (Though I prefer source game reasons for weapons so not seeing wind mage Selena, her entire map is pretty much made for her bolting) Any preference for DuesseI? I lean heavily to Axe (mainly his starting weapons and Garm for reasoning) but I can see reasoning for lance and he’s far less obvious in general than Caellach. (Who was mentioned specifically as an axe man in heores right?) For related characters Riev is sadly light focused and I doubt Vidgarde would really bring anything to the table, Orson?

        • Sisyphe

          Selfishly, I just chose weapons that would be useful to me, hence green Selena. At least sword Glen and axe Duessel make sense. Green fits the least for Selena, I’d think. Caellach is definitely an axe. I don’t know if it’s mentioned in Heroes, but Joshua mentions that he’s always used one in Sacred Stones. My favorite character in Fire Emblem is Lyon, but he profiles as another slow red mage. As a green mage, of course, I’d be all for it. Runesword Orson could be fun, but we have a lot of sword cavaliers. I’m not too interested in Riev

          • Goodperson25

            Yeah I kinda figured on Selena, Reiv was just to finish out the gemstones (and general light magic mention I guess) For Caellach I think he was (most likely, it wasn’t by name) mentioned by Joshua as an Axe user (since Dorcas was in the same batch) he knew who died in one of the more recent Heroes events/quests. (Going off memory and it wasn’t by name so thought I’d check if you already knew the reference)

          • Sisyphe

            Now that you mention it, you are definitely right! Joshua does mention that specifically in the second catalogue for those heroes. I remembered the reference but not the full content

    • MetalGear Lamia

      I’d personally want Ophelia in TT w/skills so bad…..

  • Sisyphe

    Definitely passing on this banner. We’re already buried in swords and lances. Also, Dark Greatsword? Would it have been too much to give him Siegfried, or are we playing Dark Souls now?

    As for the gauntlet, I would have thought they would’ve learned their lesson about including Tharja again, but maybe they think Rhajat will split that vote a bit?

    • Laggalot101

      I think the issue with Siegbert getting Siegfried is that it would be strangely asymmetrical, given that his Hoshidan counterpart Shiro uses lances and thus can’t use the Raijinto.

      • Sisyphe

        Fair, I guess. Probably also that they wanted to introduce a swift sparrow sword and it would make Siegbert more distinguishable from Xander

  • Zog58

    Not sure if anyone else noticed, but there wasn’t a new paralogue for the kid units, just as I feared. So that means less orbs for us sadly. At least we know there’s a log-in bonus.

  • Lucian Crowe

    Sigh another fucking Tharja/Rhajat trash banner and gauntlet… think I’ll pass not interested in Rhajat vs Tharja. They both lose in my book.

    • Sisyphe

      They’re on the same side of the bracket though, so that’s something. But it is cute that they’re trying to pretend Tharja and Rhajat are different characters

      • I know lol. At least give Rhajat a different hair color XD.
