Heroes: Return of Year 1 + 2 Winter Banners & Sothis’s Twitter Takeover

Christmas is just around the corner! To mark the occasion, Fire Emblem Heroes is re-running the Winter Special Heroes banners from the 1st and 2nd years of the game.

Winter’s Envoy features four Heroes from Awakening: Tharja, Lissa, male Robin and Chrom. If Heroes wasn’t delayed, this banner might have been released a year earlier than it did…

Meanwhile, Gifts of Winter continues the armoured Christmas tradition with Heroes from The Sacred Stones and Binding Blade: Eirika, Fae and Ephraim.

If you go to summon from one of these two banners, you may notice it’s possible to redeem (presumably) first summoning tickets, although we currently have none. Perhaps we’ll get some as our very first Christmas present?!

For reference, these tickets were discovered by data-miners last week. Curiously, three tickets are coded in, although we can only see two of them in the game right now. What could the third one (III) be used for? Assuming it’s going to be used.

Lastly, in a surprising twist, after Feh the messenger owl fell asleep on the job, Sothis–the mysterious girl from Three Houses–has taken over FE Heroes’s official Twitter accounts. Right now, it seems to be for a bit of fun, although it’d be nice if it led to something special!

Three Houses: “Sothis Regalia” Costume for Protagonists Available via Expansion Pass

To celebrate the end of the year, owners of the Three Houses expansion pass can download the “Sothis Regalia” costume, which lets the protagonists dress up as Sothis.

By the way, the Japanese website explicitly states that this will be the final costume DLC for the game.

Looking back at the upcoming DLC info from the Famitsu guidebook, you can see that this costume was originally part of the 4th and final wave of DLC. We translated it as “new costume(s) for male Byleth, female Byleth and Sothis”.

However, the wording was rather unclear; it was probably intended to be read as “new Sothis costumes for male Byleth and female Byleth”. Indeed, I’m sure many fans were wondering how they’d implement a costume for Sothis, who’s a NPC.

Heroes: Glorious Gifts found in Glorious Gifts Winter Banner, drops December 16

Fire Emblem Heroes is bringing out the holiday heroes with the upcoming Special Heroes (Glorious Gifts) banner.

This banner includes a new Duo Hero, a trio of alts, and a brand new skill line and a handful of awaited skills, including the Armor-exclusive Daring Fighter, and the expected Rally Atk/Res+ and Def/Res Gap 3. Additionally, the next Tempest Trials+ free unit will be an alt of Jaffar, bringing us a Green Dagger for free. Lastly, we have a new-ish unit, in Elice, the duo partner of the next bow-toting Duo Hero, Marth.

This will run from December 16 until January 16, so there is plenty of time to grab the next exciting batch of winter wonders.

Heroes: Mythic Hero Sothis, Incoming July 31 – Aug 6. Brings Male Byleth Into Summoning Pool

If you’ve paid any attention at all to Fire Emblem Three Houses, you’ll likely be aware of the eponymous girl on the throne that appeared in many trailers, as well as in the game itself. Forgive the spoilers, but that girl just so happens to be Sothis: Girl on the Throne, aka the next Mythic Hero joining the fray.

For the Japanese trailer, click here.

Sothis comes in as a red Resistance-blessed Dark Mythic Hero, and with her, an interesting batch of new skills. Given how [F]Byleth’s Ruptured Sky special was inheritable, it’s entirely possible that her new special, Sirius, is inheritable as well. This pairs nicely with what appears to be a very speedy build, as it scales damage off of speed, and has a lightning fast cooldown of 2.

Sothis of course brings friends with her, as this is a Mythic Hero Banner, and includes its standard 8% limited summoning condition on all included. The batch this time features:

  • Blue
    • Azura (Legendary)
    • Fjorm
    • Ryoma (Hot Springs)
  • Colorless
    • Alm (Legendary)
    • Caineghis
    • Eir
  • Green
    • Lyn (Legendary)
    • Greil
    • Hector (Legendary)
  • Red
    • Marth (Legendary)
    • [Male] Byleth

Finally, Sothis drops on July 31 (the day after tomorrow) and runs for one week, until August 6. Good luck, Summoners!

Edit – Listed Sothis as a Defense-boosting Anima hero. She is a Resistance-boosting Dark bless hero.
