Heroes: “Familial Festivities” Features Spring-themed Heroes from Binding Blade… and Est!

It’s almost time to hippity-hop in Fire Emblem Heroes again, as a new bunch of bunny Heroes make their introduction in the “Familial Festivities” trailer, released today!

Earlier, Feh teased two silhouettes; if you guessed they were Bartre and Est, give yourself a cookie. The Special Heroes featured in the upcoming banner are: Est, Fir, Narcian and Duo Idunn and Fae. As for Bartre, it looks like he’ll be our Tempest Trials+ reward.

The “Familial Festivities” banner will run from 18th March to 18th April 2020 (UTC). Narcian will also be available as a 4-star focus Hero. For more details about the Heroes in the banner, please continue reading.

    If I go for anyone it will probably be Idunn and Fae if only because I like redemption stuff. But I probably wont. I’ll wait to see who is on the Mythic Hero banner or more probably who is the new Heroes on April 8th. Also anyone else get a feeling they changed what Fir’s weapon last minute because that does not look like any sort of axe.

    • They probably realised how many lance fliers there are in proportion to the other weapon types and mixed it up accordingly. I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt though and assume the artist didn’t get the memo.

      But yeah, while I like Idoun this is another skip for me. I’ve never really pulled in any seasonal banners since I find the concept to be dumb in general. The only ones I’ve actually gone for are Marisa and Tana.

    Also wow, Idunn’s voice sounds janky here.
