Three Houses: Cindered Shadows 12-Page Feature in This Week’s Famitsu & More DLC Class Tidbts

The next issue of Weekly Famitsu, which releases on 13th February, will have a 12-page feature on the Cindered Shadows side story from Three Houses’s Wave 4 DLC.

To celebrate the occasion, Famitsu has brought over Jun Suemi–who has designed artwork for various classic games, most notably Falcom’s Brandish series–to create a new piece of artwork for the issue’s cover.

Included in the feature will be details on the new characters (presumably the Ashen Wolves and Aelfric), how Cindered Shadows interacts with the main story, plus interviews with the two directors–Toshiyuki Kusaikihara and Genki Yokota.

The preview image shows off the profiles for the four Ashen Wolves students. Of note, it has details of their personal abilities (which are too blurry to read), crests (all “Mystery Crest”) and classes.

As expected, Yuri, Constance, Balthus and Hapi have access to Trickster, Dark Flier, War Monk and Valkyrie respectively. They also have access to Commoner (Yuri and Hapi), Noble (Constance and Balthus) and Thief (Yuri).

For those who don’t follow us on social media, the Japanese Twitter account shared more details about two of the DLC classes.

Heroes: 3rd Anniversary Hero Fest Part 2 & Tempest Trials Reminder!

Just a quick bunch of reminders for Fire Emblem Heroes players on this quiet Sunday.

Firstly, the Hero Fest Part 2 banner is now available. This one features the Year 2 Brave Heroes: Ephraim, Veronica, Celica and Hector. It’ll be around until 16th February (UTC). Like Part 1, you can obtain up to 5 First Summon Tickets by logging in.

Also, the 2nd round of 3rd Anniversary quests have started as well; they’ll be available during the same period.

Next, Weekly Revival 16 is back for another round. The classic Heroes in this banner are: Jaffar, Ephraim and Karel.

Last but not least, the new Tempest Trials+ event “Romance Whirlwind” is currently on-going. The key prizes are 4-star and 5-star versions of Valentine’s Silque, plus the following Sacred Seals: Defiant Spd 1, Even Atk Wave 1 and Close Guard 1.

You’ve got until the daily rollover on 18th February (UTC) to gather all the goods. To make things easier, the game will skip Quest progress notifications when “Continuous Auto” is turned on. Which is handy because you’ll be spammed with “Defeat 1,000 Foes” notifications.

Three Houses: Wave 4 DLC Classes Officially Revealed!

With one week to go until Wave 4 of the Three Houses DLC is released, Nintendo and Intelligent Systems have been sharing a lot of tidbits via social media.

 

The latest morsel is related to the four brand new DLC classes. We already knew about them via data-mining, but now it’s official! The new classes are: Trickster, War Monk/Cleric, Dark Flier and Valkyrie. Awakening fans should recognise all four.

Featured in the screenshots are the Trickster and War Cleric classes. Looking at Ferdinand and Annette’s class lists, it seems our earlier suspicions have been confirmed: both Dark Flier and Valkyrie are female-only classes.

In Cindered Shadows, the four members of the Ashen Wolves will have access to these classes. Yuri will have Trickster, while we’re guessing Balthus will have War Monk, Constance Dark Flier and Hapi Valkyrie.

Trickster has a new Combat Art called “Trick”, which lets the user swap places with an ally within 5 spaces. With this, you can literally trick your way around the battlefield!

These classes can be unlocked in your main story save files after clearing Chapter 1 of Cindered Shadows. They are listed under a new category called “Special” classes. Characters must be Level 20+ and use an Underground Seal to change into these classes.

When you think of Trickster, there’s probably one character that jumps to mind. After clearing Chapter 1 of Cindered Shadows, you’ll be able to change Anna into her Trickster attire! Like other outfit changes, this can be done via “Unit Appearance” in your private quarters.

Additionally, Anna’s portrait during conversations etc. will change to match her new outfit! Classy.
