The next Legendary Hero to appear in Fire Emblem Heroes isn’t a surprise but an inevitability: it’s Edelgard in her post time-skip outfit from Three Houses!
If you haven’t made significant progress in Three Houses, it might be a good idea to skip the trailer, but it’s probably going to be difficult to avoid spoilers at this point…
Edelgard’s Legendary banner will be available between 30th April 2020 and the daily rollover on 6th May 2020 (UTC).
Accompanying Edelgard are the following:
- Red: Legendary Ryoma, Legendary Marth and Hrid
- Blue: Naga, Duo Ephraim and Tsubasa
- Green: Nagi and Legendary Celica
- Colourless: Eir, Silque and Larum
For a breakdown of Edelgard’s abilities (and if you don’t mind spoilers), please continue reading.
In addition to today’s update for Three Houses, Nintendo and Intelligent Systems shared some general Fire Emblem news.
Firstly, at some point during 2020, Intelligent Systems will be holding the “Fire Emblem Expo II” event in Japan.
Similar to the first event, it will be a fun event for fans, featuring special stage events and live music related to the entire series. Don’t expect any major game announcements (like the rumoured next remake) to happen there.
If you’re curious, you can check out the event’s website over here. Right now, it’s just a teaser, with proper details to be added around 22nd November 2019. For now, please watch this space!
Next, the Edelgard figma that was announced earlier this year has received a fresh coat of paint–and with it, new details. The figma measures approx. 145 mm and includes the Killer Axe from her official artwork and her relic weapon Aymr.
It is expected to release in Japan during July 2020 and will retail for 8,000 Yen (not including tax). For those interested in adding the future Adrestian emperor to their collection, you can place a pre-order and/or check out additional images via the product page at Good Smile Company
Three Houses has only been out for a few days, but we already have our first major piece of merchandise news.
Good Smile Company announced that they’ll be producing a figma version of Edelgard, the leader of the Black Eagles. Pictured is the prototype version, before it has been painted. Other Fire Emblem characters to receive figmas include Lucina and female Corrin.
This news comes from Wonder Festival 2019 (Summer), held on 28th July in Japan, where various new figures were shown off. Currently, no other details were provided, like a release date. But they did say that more details would be coming “soon”.
