No, you’re not dreaming. The Resplendent Hero arriving on 25th August 2020 will be Eirika: Restoration Lady.
This version of Eirika is wearing fanciful attire from … *grabs FEH spellchecker* Ljósálfheimr, one of the two realms in Book IV. Check out her page here. Before Eirika, Resplendent Olwen will be available from 10th August.
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.
These Special Heroes were revealed in the recent Feh Channel. For details of their abilities, please carry on to the end of this article.
Nintendo also shared a cute video of Veronica and Xander gearing up for the pirate festival.
Today’s Heroes update brings us a few nice things some of us have been looking forward to.
First off, the new Special Banner, “Summer Passing” is now available to summon from.
Summer versions of Sacred Stones’ Lute, Selena, and Joshua as well as HarmonisedMia and Masked Marth are featured. Lute is also available in the 4-Star pool with a higher rate to be summoned! You can read more into the banner in our previous news post here.
Next up, we have the new mode Resonance Battles going live from today!
This new game mode is available under the Arena menu. Chase down the Thieves (which are thankfully limited to 1 move) before they exit the top of the map and earn rewards based on your final rank. Note that you must deploy a Harmonised Hero from at least one of the two Season’s Bonuses running (e.g. this week is Heroes and Radiant Dawn) to earn bonus points for a higher score. You can run a team without a Harmonised Hero but you won’t score so high.
Also today: Pick up your free 5-Star Special Summer Hero summon! Everybody from the previous three years is available, and you can summon one of them for free! You have nothing to lose.
The free summon is available from today until the 2nd of July 6:59am UTC, so plenty of time.
The Special Heroes clad in swimwear include Selena, Joshua and Lute from The Sacred Stones. Meanwhile, the fourth Hero (or pair of Heroes rather), Mia and Masked Marth is a new type of Duo Hero.
Right now, we’re unsure what their official designation is–maybe “Harmonized Hero” or “Harmonic Hero”, judging from their skill name? Internally, their icon is labelled as “Twin World”, presumably referring to them coming from different worlds (Tellius and Ylisse).
Anyway, “Summer Passing” will arrive on 18th June 2020 (UTC). In this summoning event, Lute will also be a part of the 4-star focus category. Also, Summoners can snag Mia’s partner, Rhys: Gentle Basker, in the upcoming Tempest Trials+ event.
For a text breakdown of the Heroes’ abilities, please continue on…
Alright, let’s see how close everyone’s guesses were… Because the trailer for the next Special Heroes, arriving on 20th May 2020 (UTC), is now here!
Bridal Beloveds features Nailah, Oboro, Rafiel and Duo Micaiah (and Sothe), from Radiant Dawn and Fates. Rafiel will also be available as a 4-star focus Hero. Meanwhile, Hinata: Samurai Groom is the top prize of the upcoming Tempest Trials+ event.
As usual, keep going for a text breakdown of the new Heroes!
