Heroes: Additions arrive from Abyss and Múspell on Sept 17

I certainly wasn’t expecting this in the latest Heroes banner, but I’m definitely ok with the surprise, in the Abyss & Múspell banner, featuring Yuri, Constance and Hapi from the Fire Emblem Three Houses DLC, as well as the next Heroes OC in Múspell.

There are a handful of variant skills in the batch, and a heck of a lot of Canto amongst the arrivals from Abyss. New skills include Atk/Res Catch 4, A/S Far Trace 3, AR-Def/Res 4, and probably the most notable for scorekeepers in the arena, C Duel Infantry 4.

Additionally, Balthus: King of Grappling, a Green Axe Infantry (and showing off how good of a grappler he is by using an Axe…), will be an upcoming unit available as a 3* or 4* in the summoning pool. Furthermore, Aelfric: Custodian Monk, will be the next Grand Hero Battle unit, which can be earned in his respective Grand Hero Battle available on Sept 17. You can also spark a unit after 40 summons, and finally, there will be a Celestial Stone also available after 40 summons.

The Abyss & Múspell banner will kick off on September 17 at 12a PT.

Three Houses: Alphard* Profile & Cindered Shadows Class/Ability Tidbits

Next week, the final wave of DLC (as far as we know) will be released for Three Houses. Recently, the official Japanese Twitter account has been sharing details for the Cindered Shadows side story from the DLC.

In case you missed it, here’s what they posted earlier: 1st set of profiles / 2nd set of profiles (includes details about the save file interactions).

Now, onto the new stuff!


Not to be mistaken with a well known YouTuber, Alphard appears to be an important NPC within Abyss. It seems he’s the 38 year old male found via data-mining.


* Although we’ve currently given him the name “Alphard”, based on his Japanese name, there’s a high chance that his name in the English version is “Aelfric”.

If you enable English subtitles (not the auto-generated ones) in the American trailer for Cindered Shadows, around the halfway mark, some of the lines come from a person called “Aelfric”. These lines seem like something Alphard would say.

Thanks to u/Crazydjs on Reddit for pointing this out!

In addition, we have a few more general gameplay tidbts.

Unlike the main story, where you can raise your skill levels and pass examinations to change class, in Cindered Shadows, each character has preset classes that you can choose from. New classes will also appear, so please stay tuned!

Also, skill levels are fixed, so each character will have preset skills and combat arts. Maps in Cindered Shadows have more gimmicks and the difficulty is a bit higher than the main story. You’ll need to plan around each character’s role, as well as the situation in front!
