As hinted at in yesterday’s tweet, another batch of Special Heroes is arriving soon in Fire Emblem Heroes! Check out the Happy New Year! preview trailer to take a look at Azura, Takumi, and Camilla all dressed and ready for the Hoshidan new year.

As always, these three new Special Heroes come with a variety of new weapons and skills. You can see a full breakdown of all their abilities below.

Additionally, a new paralogue, also titled “Happy New Year!” will be arriving alongside the new banner. One paralogue map shows Male Corrin dressed for the occasion as well, though he does not appear in the new banner.

    “New Years Corrin will be given out as a reward during an event in January.”
    Could be a Tempest Trial reward but we are in the middle of a trial right know, so having 2 trials one near the other is a little strange.
    Grand Hero Battle, maybe? Or a new type of event?

      The tweet was kind of vague on it, probably on purpose. It may be a new event or just a new type of reward for an existing event.

    For those of you don’t know what Corrin’s build is, take a look.
    HP/37, ATK/32, SPD/30, DEF/34, RES/18
    Weapon: Hama Ya+- Effective against flying foes. Grants Def/Res+2 during combat to allies within 2 spaces.
    Support: Rally Def/Res- Grants Def/Res+3 to an adjacent ally until the end of the turn.
    A: Attack Def +2- Grants Atk/Def+2.
    C: Spur Def/Res 2- Grants adjacent allies Def/Res +3 during combat.

    At first you might think he’s a mediocre unit, but his stats are similar to Leon and Leon is actually a pretty good unit. NY!Corrin might not have the advantage of having boons and banes as well has having 2 less attack than Leon, but Corrin has 4 more defense. Close counter archer builds would be pretty nice on him if only that skill wasn’t a premium skill.
