Heroes: “Dark Desert Rituals” Offers Plegian-style Special Heroes!

Summoners, let’s kick off 2021 with a secret festival devoted to the Fell Dragon, Grima! Surely nothing will go wrong…?

“Dark Desert Rituals”, which runs from 18th January to 18th February 2021 (UTC) features Special Heroes wearing Plegian ritualistic garb. For those unaware, Plegia is the antagonistic nation from Awakening that worships Grima.

Note: You can check out the Japanese version of this trailer here.

The Special Heroes in the summoning event are: Tharja, Katarina, Raphael and Harmonized Dorothea and Lene. Raphael will also be available from the 4-star focus category.

Tharja was a given, from the obvious silhouette. However, the rest are a nice surprise (and it’s funny how Dorothea has a second seasonal version before her base version).

Not to be left out, Kris: Ardent Firebrand will be available from the upcoming Tempest Trials+ event “Love of Family”. You can also look forward to the Brazen Spd/Def 1 and Air Orders 1 Sacred Seals.

Heroes: Fairies and Beasts Bring Good Fortune in “New Year: ω Special Heroes”!

Keeping with tradition, to celebrate the coming New Year, more Kimono-clad Special Heroes will be arriving soon to Fire Emblem Heroes! The New Year: ω Special Heroes banner will be running from 1st January to 1st February 2021 (UTC).

Note: You can check out the Japanese version of this trailer here.

Similar to previous years, the Special Heroes include some of the original characters from the just-finished Book IV, in addition to some lucky Beast characters. The line up is: Plumeria, Velouria, Kaden and Duo Peony (and Triandra).

To mix things up, the banner will also feature 4 Special Heroes from last year’s Renewed Spirits banner: Anna, Selkie, Lethe and Duo Alfonse. The combined focus 5-star rate will be set to 6%, while the non-focus 5-star rate is 2%. Also, Kaden can be summoned as a 4-star focus Hero.

On top of that, Keaton: Resolved Wolfskin will be available via the upcoming Tempest Trials++ event.

Update: Hot off the presses, there will be a gift of 5 First Summon Tickets applicable for this banner. More details will be shared later on.

Heroes: Even Dragons Celebrate the Fall in “Dragons Harvest”

We’re approaching the Halloween season, which means more spooky Special Heroes coming to Fire Emblem Heroes! This time, all the Heroes have one thing in common: dragons.

Note: You can check out the Japanese version of this trailer here.

The Special Heroes introduced in “Dragons Harvest” (which runs from 8th October UTC) include Halloween versions of Robin (as Grima), Xane, Dheginsea and Harmonic Tiki and Ninian. Xane will also appear as a 4★ focus Hero.

There’s a saying around here that “Goldoa will not move”. Unless the order of the world has been threatened. Or when there are sweets at stake. Besides the Black Dragon King, this is Xane’s debut in Heroes–and it’s interesting to see how his mimicking ability has been translated.

Additionally, Ena: Autumn Tactician will be available in the “Ever Two Halves” Tempest Trials event that starts on 9th October (UTC). Other rewards from the Tempest Trials include the Brazen Def/Res 1 and Atk/Def Solo 1 Sacred Seals.

The bonus Heroes for this event are the four new Special Heroes, Ena herself, plus the regular versions of Young Tiki, Ninian and male Robin. You can attempt to summon the latter three from the Tempest Trials banner, which is available now.

Please continue reading to learn about the new Heroes!

Moving back to the present, pirates have invaded Fire Emblem Heroes. Pirate versions of Brigid, Tibarn, Geese and Harmonized Veronica (and Xander) are up for grabs. Or maybe they’ll run off with your Orbs, like they did mine.

Nintendo also shared a cute video of Veronica and Xander gearing up for the pirate festival.
