Heroes: Brides are Back on May 20, along with a Groom and Minister too!

Yep; it’s that time of year again, Summoners, in which we’re graced quite literally with a Special Heroes Banner featuring wedding vows and gorgeous get-ups. This time, we’re graced with a few new characters to join “Alt Heck” as some might refer to it, and the return of some already familiar faces, in the Bridal Grace Special Heroes banner.

Summoners familiar with Fire Emblem Binding Blade will recognize many of these characters, such as the return of Shanna and Thea (as the Harmonized Partner), but there are also new faces that some of you may not know, in Saul and Juno. Saul plays the part of the game’s second healer, while Juno is the eldest of the three Ilian pegasisters.

Additionally, we’ll find that Juno’s husband, Zelot: Avowed Groom, will arrive as a Green Axe Cavalry, marking his first appearance in the game as well. Not only that, but we have a handful of new inheritable skills, in the C Duel Cavalry 4, and two new -Trace skills. These are sure to shake up the meta even more, not to mention the Observant Staff+, which offers a wild amount of self-empowering potential.

The Bridal Grace Banner kicks off on May 20, and lasts until June 17, so there is plenty of time to get your hands on these beautiful brides and gleaming grooms!
