Heroes: Special Heroes (Unlikely Friends) brings a Tiny Tellius team to the fray on April 7

It’s high time for our next low-in-age units to join the brigade, and this time, we’re graced with a slew of Tellius inspired units, all of which have connections to each other via the Greil Mercenaries. This, and just a bit more, come in the Unlikely Friends Special Heroes banner!

For the Japanese trailer, click here.

This banner features a few interesting inheritable skills, including the next Distant Counter but with a stat boost skill, Distant Dart (boosting Speed). There is also the new -Tempo skill line, which is similar to Special Fighter 3, that protects a unit from Special Cooldown altering abilities, and also grants a stat advantage. The Spd/Def Tempo 3 appears on an Infantry unit this time around, so I wonder what unit movement types will be allowed to use this skill. Speaking of skills, we have another rare Colorless Tome with Soren.

Additionally, Boyd: Future Great, makes his debut in Heroes, and much to no one’s surprise, is a green axe infantry. He is a free unit, earnable in the upcoming Tempest Trials+ event as reward unit.

Finally, Ilyana: Awakened Appetite, will be available in the 4* Focus pool.

Special Heroes (Unlikely Friends) will run from April 7 until May 6.
