Heroes: Tempest Trials Mini: Stepping into the New Year Summoning Focus & Details!

Another bite-sized Tempest Trials is coming to Fire Emblem Heroes! Tempest Trials Mini: Stepping into the New Year is coming next week. As preparation, you can try your luck at the associated Summoning Focus to snag up 5★ versions of the Hoshidan siblings Ryoma, Hinoka, and Sakura.

As expected, all three of these units will be Bonus Allies in the upcoming Tempest Trials Mini. Each of them, along with Alfonse, gives a 20% bonus to your final score. The 40% Bonus Allies are the seasonal New Years heroes: Takumi, Camilla, Azura, and M!Corrin.

New Years M!Corrin may not be available in the Happy New Year! banner, but everyone will be able to get their hands on him soon. As expected, M!Corrin will be the hero prize in this Tempest Trials Mini! Since this is the smaller version of the Trials, you can get his 5★ version at only 15,000 points. You can also see a Wind Blessing at 12,500.

Tempest Trials Mini: Stepping into the New Year begins on Tuesday, 14 January and runs for one week, ending on the 23rd.
