If you’ve been anticipating news on the incoming Bridal Banner, well you didn’t have to wait for long. We’ve just received the Special Heroes (Bridal Bloom) banner video, to give us the juicy details on the incoming wedding cravers.
The Special Heroes (Bridal Bloom) Banner comes in just a few days, bringing us three new brides (with some fancy never-before-seen skills), a series of Paralogue maps which will all feature some goodies and quests with which to reap rewards from, and news of one other special surprise unit Summoners have been waiting for…
That’s right! Marth: Altean Groom finally gets his day, as an Axe-wielding Cavalry unit, available as a reward through the next Tempest Trials+ event, slated to begin on May 25. If you aren’t sure where the inspiration for this variant of Marth comes from, look no further than the DLC for Koei-Tecmo’s Fire Emblem Warriors, which featured Marth in his slick new suit for players to enjoy.
Special Heroes (Bridal Bloom) kicks off on May 21, and will remain active for one month, until June 20, so Summoners, you’ve got plenty of time to save up those orbs and try to get a bride of your own, if you so desire.

From a recent poll there were votes on what combination attacks to see, this is the winner. Marth & Lucina, where Lucina in a nod to smash brothers & her origin in Awakening proper, follows up and emulates Marth’s more graceful swordstyle. Before doing a really cool finisher.
The retweet goal made it so the second place winner will be shown as well, which is Ryoma & Xander, so stay tuned for that.
We finally, after nearly 5 months of waiting have some proper information on the upcoming Fire Emblem Warriors.
First off we’ll go over some translated tidbits, all of which come from this week’s issue of Famitsu.
Two original protagonists: Shion and Lian. They are twins from the Kingdom of Aitriss and the children of Queen Yuana.
Shion (VA: Yūma Uchida – Who voices Rock Howard in The King of Fighters XIV in terms of recent game roles.)
The royal prince of the Kingdom of Aitriss. Aspires to be a knight who fights on the front-lines rather than a king and thus encourages his twin sister Lian to inherit the throne.
Lian (VA: Māya Uchida – Who voices Sharena in the Japanese version of Fire Emblem Heroes.)
Shion’s older twin sister. Clever and is understanding of her own faults, so she has no desire to inherit the throne. Rather, she encourages Shion to become king.
After a quiet spell, we finally have some new details about Fire Emblem Warriors courtesy of preview images of this week’s Famitsu, which releases this Thursday.
As expected, Warriors will feature original characters in addition to the existing heroes from throughout the series–starting with twin protagonists Shion and Lian (names are subject to change).
At the moment, we only have tiny images to go off, so it’s impossible to make out any concrete information about the duo. We do see both of them with Marth in the screenshots, so presumably they will exist simultaneously in the story.
The second preview image focuses on Marth from Shadow Dragon–the second fighter to be confirmed, following Chrom from Awakening. As the hero of the very first Fire Emblem and one of the series’s icons, his addition shouldn’t come as a shock.
In the top-right corner, there’s a mention of the Kingdom of Aitriss being engulfed in war. One can assume this is the friendly nation that Shion and Lian hail from–and we would not be surprised if they were Idrisian royalty.
To the left is a screenshot of Marth shaking hands with a currently unknown character. It’s definitely not Shion or Lian due to the different hair colour and clothes and it’s also hard to tell if it’s an existing character or a new one.
That’s about it for the previews, but this week’s issue will include at least 2 more double-page spreads. The two pages after Marth focus on Chrom, while there’s also a staff interview at the end. (The numbers 10 to 13 refer to Marth and Chrom’s pages.)
