Heroes: “Dawning Reality & Nifl” Feature More Fates Plus Nifl: God of Ice!

Lo and behold, the next batch of Heroes coming to Fire Emblem Heroes will be from FE Fates. However, there’s also a surprise–just in time for the end of the current Tempest Trials, Nifl: God of Ice, can also be summoned!

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

“Dawning Reality & Nifl”, which runs from 19th July 2021 (UTC), will add Charlotte (base version), Nyx, Orochi (also available via 4-star Focus), Benny (3 and 4-star) and Nifl.

Curiously, Nifl is a regular Hero and not a Mythic. Despite being a bona fide deity in the game’s story, which should qualify them to be a Mythic.

Additionally, Arete: Requiem’s Beauty will be available from the upcoming Grand Hero Battle.

Please continue for a breakdown of the new Heroes from the trailer!
