Heroes: “Festival of Hoshido” Banner, Coming Soon

Fire Emblem Heroes caught us by surprise with their latest “Festival in Hoshido” banner, teased just yesterday. I myself was caught by more surprise, when the released video trailer for the banner featuring just one Hoshidan…

That’s right; the upcoming Festival in Hoshido banner revealed to us four new units, including two alternates of units that we’ve seen before, as well as two alternates of fan favorites that had up until now, had no alts even considered. The most interesting part about this might not be the new alternate units, but weapons wielded by two of them; we now have colored Dagger users. Of course, you can also enjoy collecting some orbs from the accompanying Paralogue chapters and associated quests, so there will be plenty to do.

Festival of Hoshido will be active from August 10, until September 7, so there’s plenty of time to get your hands on this batch of dancers.

    Micaiah and Elincia look great, I’m very pleased with their art. Though I have to say, IS has lost me on what counts as a rejuvenating dance. Because Xander, what you just did there was far from rejuvenating.

    Though I do crack up when I see it each time.

  • Shenai

    lol, they all look amazing.

    Who needed colored daggers though…

  • bloodcoveredfangirl

    Well I have 560 orbs soon to be 0 because I want all of these…

  • Alexander Bodine

    Whoa, Elincia!

  • Diovani Estivalet

    This is a interesting banner, and I am happy this is a 1 month banner, so I will probably wait until late August to decide if I will pull or not.
    Xander will probably have high Atk and Def but poor Spd and Res. Elincia looks great! I am not a huge fan of Push skills. The perfect weapons for this type of skills are the 2017’s spring weapons. I would prefer Fire Storm Dance too. Ryoma with a blue dagger strong against armored foes, TA 3 and Chill Def will be the bane of red armored units. Micaiah looks amazing too, and her skill set is great too. She is all about RES.
    My priority will be Elincia and Ryoma, because the new weapon type, but all four are really good units. But I will wait until late August… CYL is coming…

    Also… can we expect colored staff too? A colored staff unit would be perfect as Legendary Hero!

    Suddenly, just as many colored dagger users as colored bows. That was faster than I espected. Well, they did change the effect of Daggerbreaker with the Colorless dragon update.
    Strange is with Micaiahs arrival, that all my orbs are gone for good.

      Also I like her cheeky grin, it reminds me of that from Reinhardt as he became the Meta.

    I love Xander’s Awa dance
