December’s first Resplendent Hero has been revealed as Nowi: Eternal Youth.
This version of Nowi is wearing an outfit inspired by Múspell, the Kingdom of Flame. She’ll be available for FEH Pass subscribers from 10th December 2021 (UTC). You can check her artwork (by Kousei Horiguchi) and voice samples here.
Despite being a no-show in the latest “Ice & Flame 5” event, Ascended Laegjarn will debut in the next New Heroes banner, “New Heroes & Ascended Laegjarn”, which begins on 17th November 2021 (UTC).
Note: You can check out the Japanese version of this trailer here.
The featured Heroes in the banner are: Volke, Astrid, Marcia and Ascended Laegjarn. Tanith also appears in the banner as a non-featured Hero. Meanwhile, Bertram will be available via the upcoming Grand Hero Battle. Excluding Laegjarn, these Heroes all originate from Path of Radiance.
Alongside the new Heroes, there will be a new story chapter that concludes the Book V arc, “Specter of Niðavellir”. There’s a good chance the final boss of Book V will appear in this month’s Mythic Hero banner, perhaps even alongside Thorr–similar to Freyja and Triandra last year (but that’s just a guess).
Please continue for a breakdown of the Heroes from the trailer!
November’s second Resplendent Hero will be Ryoma: Peerless Samurai.
This version of Ryoma is wearing dazzling clothes inspired by Askr. He’ll be available for subscribers from 25th November 2021 (UTC). Meanwhile, you can check his artwork (by Clover.K) and voice samples over yonder.
Also, the next event calendar is ready for viewing.
Key happenings include the next batch of New Heroes from 17th November (UTC), another Mythic Hero on 30th November (UTC) and more New Heroes from 7th December (UTC).
Assuming previous years’ patterns, early December should feature a FEH Channel, including details for the next arc of the main story (Book VI). Presumably, we’ll get our first original character from Book VI in the December New Heroes banner.
Another version update for Fire Emblem Heroes is coming soon. Version 5.11.0 is scheduled for release on 3rd or 4th November 2021, depending on your timezone.
