Heroes: “Princess of Bern” Introduces More Allies from Binding Blade!

Well, well, it seems fans have cracked the code to predict which game the next New Heroes are bound to be from. This time, Binding Blade gets another chance to shine, in the upcoming “Princess of Bern” summoning event.

Note: You can check out the Japanese version of this trailer here.

Starting from 17th November 2020 (UTC), the following Heroes will make their debut: Melady, Dieck, Merlinus and Guinevere. Merlinus will also be available as a 4-star focus Hero. Then on the following day, Galle: Azure Rider can be challenge in a new Grand Hero Battle.

It’s very interesting to see Merlinus as a Hero, since–although he was a unit in the games he appeared in–he couldn’t fight. Also, Guinivere and Galle could be obtained in Binding Blade, but you had to beat the game 9 times and twice respectively to unlock them.

By the way, aside from the upcoming Mythic Hero, the next bunch of Heroes will be “New Heroes” again. This time, however, it’s probably not possible to predict them, since the calendar doesn’t go far enough into the future.

Anyway, please continue reading to learn about the new Heroes!
