It’s coming to the end of an odd-numbered month, which means the debut of another Mythic Hero in Fire Emblem Heroes! Her arrival was inevitable, but it’s nice to finally see Ashera from Radiant Dawn in her mythical glory.
Note: You can check out the Japanese version of this trailer here.
For those unfamiliar, Ashera is the Goddess revered by the people of Tellius. At this point, it’s hard to avoid spoilers for Radiant Dawn, what with a certain jet-black general walking around unmasked… Plus, Ashera’s counterpart debuted as a Mythic Hero nearly two years ago.
Ashera’s Mythic Hero banner will be available between the daily rollovers on 31st May and 8th June 2021 (UTC). These Heroes will appear alongside Ashera:
- Red: Legendary Roy, Legendary Eliwood and Azelle
- Blue: Legendary Azura, Peony and Ronan
- Green: Triandra, Freyja and Dedue
- Colorless: Legendary Corrin (F) and Legendary Claude
Following the release of the new Mythic trailer, Ashera’s artist, Kenri Sita (who was also the artist of Radiant Dawn) shared all of Ashera’s artwork via Twitter.
Anyway, please continue for a text version for Ashera’s abilities!
An unlikely winner of Choose Your Legends 4 has arrived in Grand Hero Battles. Between 19th and 27th August 2020, Summoners can challenge Jorge: Traveling Peddler.
If you’ve never heard of our friend Jorge, we don’t blame you. Along with his twin brother Daniel (who makes a cameo in Jorge’s special art), he’s an incredibly minor shopkeeper from the Tellius games.
Still, if Jorge can make his way into Heroes, you have to wonder who else can…
Jorge: Traveling Peddler
Type: Blue Bow Infantry
Voice: Aleks Le
Artist: Daisuke Izuka
Weapon: Daniel-Made Bow – Accelerates Special trigger (cooldown count -1). Effective against flying foes. Grants Atk +5 to allies within 2 spaces during combat. Inflicts Atk -5 on foes within 2 spaces during combat.
B: Chill Def 3
C: Atk Opening 3 (available at 4-star)
On 25th May, the Fire Emblem Cipher team held their Spring 2019 livestream–the second seasonal one of the year. The hosts were Ryota Kawade, Young, and Eri Suzuki.
Note: Images were taken from @kizuna_fecipher.
The main agenda was to discuss the upcoming Series 17: “The Advance of All Heroes”. This series breaks the usual trends of featuring a small number of factions by including not just every faction but every single game title.
Above is the official list of featured games. I won’t bother naming them all, but it’s all the mainline games from the first up to Echoes and including Heroes and Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE. Unless I missed it, Warriors is not advertised, despite having cards in the past.
Besides that, the original Cipher mascots will make an appearance in Series 17 too. Above are Emma and Shade, the first pair of mascots, in the Falcon Knight and Dark Sage classes respectively.
Also, although Three Houses isn’t a featured title (because it’s a bit too new by the time the Series 17 releases), there will be cards for it, in the form of booster box “preview” promos. It seems everyone will get 2 of the 4 cards per box.
I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend! As for me, I somehow ended up at a motorcycle festival, but that’s a story for another time and place. Anyway, I’m here to report the upcoming schedule for the rotating characters and songs on the Japanese Fire Emblem World website.
Last month, we covered the schedule from 22nd April to 26th May. From here, every single game that’s been released (that’s been developed by Intelligent Systems) has been featured at least once–some twice. My aim is to keep going until I’m bored
or enough people shout at me.
27th May – 2nd June: Binding Blade
: Dark Priestess
Next week starts off with the second appearance of Binding Blade. The characters include the Araphen orphanage trio, a trio of promoted units (two from the Western Isles) and… Merlinus. It’s kinda like they were going for a pattern, but decided to sod it at the last minute.
