If you caught the teaser pic from the other day, you’ll have probably had a hunch about an incoming hotsprings banner. Fans of the heat and squeaky-clean special summons can rejoice, as we’re about to receive just that, in the Hostile Springs Special Heroes Banner.
We do have a handful of new skills in this flier-centric series, aside from the neat variety of weapons, including Air Orders 3, Atk Feint 3 and Spd Opening 3.
Included in the maps, Summoners can spot a flying Colorless dagger Camilla (someone arguably expected by fans, to appear in a Fates-based banner such as this). Camilla: Steamy Secrets will be a reward unit that can be earned in the next Tempest Trials+ event.
Hostile Springs brings with it, a paralogue miniseries (great for collecting Orbs), and the banner will be active from January 23 – February 22, (Midnight – 11:59 pm PT). If you’re interested in going for this batch, best of luck, and remember, there’s another Special Heroes banner coming out in a couple of weeks, so there’s a lot to consider for the month of February!

Good news for Sakura fans! The nendoroid figure of the youngest Hoshidan princess is now available to pre-order from most big Japanese hobby stores–or even directly from Good Smile Company themselves.
First announced way back during Winter WonFes 2017, Sakura is the latest Fire Emblem character to receive the nendoroid treatment–previous characters include Marth, Caeda, Elise and female Corrin.
A detailed review of the Sakura nendoroid can be found at Kahoton’s blog. The figure comes with a stand, three interchangeable face plates (normal, shouting and embarrassed), a staff with an optional healing effect and a dumpling rod.
The figure is priced at 4,800 Yen (with tax included) and is expected to ship from May 2018. Pre-orders close on 9th November 2017, so prospecting buyers have roughly a month to secure this adorable little sister.
First teased back in February, Good Smile Company has blessed us with a first look at the Fire Emblem Fates Sakura nendoroid during today’s Summer Wonder Festival 2017.
Currently, the Sakura nendoroid is a work in progress (which should be immediately obvious since it hasn’t been painted yet), but it’s still very cute all the same.
According to the official description, Sakura will come with accessories and face plates, similar to previous nendoroids. The Elise nendoroid came with a horse, so hopefully Sakura will get something even half as good.
Because it’s still early days, a release date and a price have not been announced yet. We imagine it’ll be 2018 before it releases, since figures of this complexity can take a while to manufacture.
