Update: There was no new trailer or demo at the expected time. Instead, the Twitter account has started tweeting new conversations from previously announced characters.
VA: Hiroshi Watanabe Heir to Count Gloucester. As a rival to House Riegan–leader of the Alliance, he regularly showcases the pride and responsibility of a mighty house that props up the Alliance. Also an avid socialiser, perhaps seeking a spouse, but has little to show for his efforts.
One of Lorenz’s preferred classes. A class that wields lances and magic. Lorenz can also consume a unique gauge to negate enemy attacks. When the gauge is at max, you can create a whirlwind of roses to take down foes!
Claude’s showing in the trailer is very brief, just showing him shoot a storm of arrows. They seem to know we want to see the rest of the Deer’s new designs considering Hilda’s sequence is just about as short.
Hilda shows her devastating axe arm, and also shows off the ability her profile mentioned many weeks ago. She can drag enemies together with lightning to hit them all at once, which seems really useful if enemies are spread out or if archers are picking at you while you’re fighting others. Just to name two examples.
It’s Summer time, and that means seatime specials join the squad. This year is no different, thanks to the Summer Vibrance Special Heroes banner, featuring an entirely Three Houses cast in Ashe, Caspar, Mercedes and Duo-Hero Hilda (& Marianne).
Among the mighty heroes are a couple of new inheritable skills, including the next in the -Recovery line (Even Recovery 3), and the -Trace line (A/R Far Trace 3), as well as a couple of interesting inheritable defensive weapons. A skill sure to shake things up however, is B Duel Cavalry 4, which assigns a 180 BST score to Blue Cavalry units. I don’t think I need to tell you who this includes.
To continue the trend of Three Houses Heroes, Leonie: Relentless Rays, a Colorless Bow Cavalry will be the the Tempest Trials+ reward unit.
The Summer Vibrance banner will run from June 21 until August 4, giving Summoners plenty of time to secure their favorite. If I recall from past trends, this will wrap up just before the CYL Heroes would become available, so try not to burn through too many orbs!
