Well, what do you know? Fire Emblem Heroes‘s first summoning event of 2021will feature characters from the slightly underrepresented Thracia 776! “Shared Purpose” will begin from 8th January 2020 (UTC).
Note: You can check out the Japanese version of this trailer here.
The new Heroes in the summoning event are: Asbel, Ronan, Miranda and Sara. Which is a rather varied mix; the first two join early on in Leif’s quest, while the latter two are recruited nearer the end.
As you might expect, Ronan… er, actually Miranda will also be available from the 4-star focus category. In addition, Veld: Manfroy’s Rock can be obtained via an upcoming Grand Hero Battle.
Please continue for a breakdown of the new Heroes!
The next Legendary Hero has been announced, via a trailer, and it just so happens to bring back some Judgral love, with Leif: Unifier of Thracia.
Leif, Unifier of Thracia, is a Colorless Bow Cavalry, who brings with him the Meisterbogen (Master Bow) which behaves much like Reinhardt’s Meisterschwert, and a handful of unique skills, including a repeat of his signature B skill, S Drink, Atk/Res Push 4, and also, a unique personal Special skill, Njorun’s Zeal, which when procced, gives Leif a second action. He’ll also be a Water blessed “Duel” effect Legendary Hero, with the Pair Up ability. This banner will run from October 29 until November 4.
This is a Legendary Hero, of course, so a slew of other Heroes will be available in Leif’s summoning event. Included at an 8% summoning rate will be:
Leif (Fully equipped):
HP: 40 | Atk: 47 [38 + 9 from his weapon] | Spd: 17 [22 – 5 from his weapon] | Def: 29 | Res: 27
9 Mt | Rng 2
Effective against flying foes.
Inflicts Spd -5
Unit attacks twice (even if foe initiatse combat).
When under player’s control, unit gains: “If unit initiates combat, foe cannot make a follow-up attack.”
Njorun’s Zeal  (Special)
If unit initiates combat, grants another action to unit after combat. (Once per turn.) When Special triggers, inflicts “restricts movement to 1 space” on unit and Pair Up cohort through their next action.
Atk/Res Push 4 (A)
At start of combat, if unit’s HP is greater than or equal to 25%, grants Atk/Res +7, but after combat, if unit attacked, deals 5 damage to unit.
Welcome to another relaxing Sunday article, where we’ll cover the upcoming schedule for the rotating characters and songs on the Japanese Fire Emblem World website. Last month, we listed the schedule from 27th May to 30th June.
This time, we have 7 week’s worth of data. The selection of games is pretty solid as well, with reps from Archanea, Jugdral, Elibe, Magvel, Ylisse and wherever the heck Fates takes place. Three Houses will be released during this time period, but it’s unlikely the game will be featured until August, at the earliest.
The main agenda was to discuss the upcoming Series 17: “The Advance of All Heroes”. This series breaks the usual trends of featuring a small number of factions by including not just every faction but every single game title.
Above is the official list of featured games. I won’t bother naming them all, but it’s all the mainline games from the first up to Echoes and including Heroes and Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE. Unless I missed it, Warriors is not advertised, despite having cards in the past.
Besides that, the original Cipher mascots will make an appearance in Series 17 too. Above are Emma and Shade, the first pair of mascots, in the Falcon Knight and Dark Sage classes respectively.
Also, although Three Houses isn’t a featured title (because it’s a bit too new by the time the Series 17 releases), there will be cards for it, in the form of booster box “preview” promos. It seems everyone will get 2 of the 4 cards per box.
