Fire Emblem Heroes‘s first Special Heroes banner of 2023 will be “Sage of Khadein?”, which runs from 10th January to 10th February 2023 (UTC).
(Japanese trailer available here.)
Keeping with the desert theme of recent years, various Heroes are dressed in attire suited for the sorcerous nation of Khadein from Marth’s games.
The featured Heroes are: Nino, Ursula, male Byleth (available via the 4-star focus) and Harmonic Linde with Sara.
In addition, Soren (blue tome) will be the reward from the upcoming Tempest Trials+ event.
By the way, during previous years, there has always been a New Heroes banner between the New Year’s banner and the next year’s first Special Heroes banner. The common theory is that they swapped 2023’s first New Heroes banner to align with the release of Fire Emblem Engage.
