Heroes: Special Heroes Will Ring in the New Year in “Renewed Spirit” Summoning Event!

If you’re curious about this year’s New Year’s Special Heroes, you don’t have to wait any longer! Nintendo has just dropped a new trailer for the Renewed Spirit summoning event, which starts on 1st January 2020 (UTC).

The Heroes in the summoning event are Anna (who finally gets an alt!), Selkie, Lethe and Duo Alfonse and Sharena. In addition, Eir will be available in the next Tempest Trials+ event. For a text breakdown, please check the end of this article.

Furthermore, Nintendo has shared a video from the Nintendo Treehouse team, highlighting these new Heroes. Also, the “Meet some of the Heroes” page has been updated with all five Heroes as well.

Unless I missed it, it seems they skipped the usual silhouette phase. Perhaps because of the recent data-mine?

    So yeah Duo Alfonse & Sharena’s duo skill seems to be lowering the special counter so they can start the vicious cycle of Bonfire/Sol-Stat Boost-Special Spiral right away without needed to attack anyone first.
