Heroes: Special Heroes Brings “A Season for Picnics”, 4 Alts on April 19

I sure wasn’t expecting to have a picnic to plan for this soon after the teaser was just revealed. I guess I’ll just have to rush out and get ready for the 19th, as there’s A Season for Picnics upon us, and it brings some alts for popular characters!

Fans that suspected Genny were right on the nose (and I’m pretty dang glad to see a Lukas alt, personally)! Featured in the this batch are a handful of new skills, notably geared towards Aether Raids, and the next X-Opening skill, as well as some nifty inheritable weaponry. The units coming are Lukas, Flora, Felicia and Genny, but that’s not all…

 

The next Tempest Trial+ reward unit can be spotted in the form of a Green Mage Cavalry, Leo: Extra Tomatoes. He’ll be available in the next TT+ which kicks off on April 24th.

A Season for Picnics runs from April 19 until May 18, so there’s a whole month to pick up a picnicker. Remember that we’re getting a new Legendary Hero on the 27th, too. Orbs are going to be tough to hold onto for the next couple of weeks!
