Before launch, the developers of Fire Emblem Heroes explained they would have special events to tie-in with the release of new Fire Emblem games, such as Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. In fact, a new Summoning Focus went live on April 14th, along with new Paralogue, focusing on Alm and the members of the Deliverance.
And as we expected, the developers announced today that more characters from Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia would be added to Fire Emblem Heroes on May 15th (this Monday). Naturally, this is to celebrate the European and North American release of the game, scheduled for May 19th.
This time around, the focus is on Celica and her band. A new Summoning Focus will go live, called “Rite of Shadows”, that include the following characters:
- [5 ★ Focus] [5 ★] Celica, the Caring Princess (from Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia). Voiced by Erica Lindbeck. Artist: Fujikawa Akira;
- [5 ★ Focus] [5 ★] Boey, the Skilfull Survivor (from Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia). Voiced by Chris Hackney. Artist: Aoji;
- [5 ★ Focus] [5 ★] Mae, the Bundle of Energy (from Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia). Voiced by Cherami Leigh. Artist: Caou;
- [5 ★ Focus] [5 ★] Cenny, the Endearing Ally (from Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia). Voiced by Claudia Lenz. Artist: Amagaitaro.
This new Summoning Focus will come with a new Story Chapter (not a Paralogue, it seems!), also called “Rite of Shadow”, which also focuses on Celica and her band. There’s also some Special Quests! The new Summoning Focus and the Special Quests are available until May 30th.
The Characters page for Fire Emblem Heroes will be updated with more details about the characters from the new Summoning Focus(es), so make sure to check it out. As for the Story Chapter and the Special Quests, details can be found on the Events and Content Updates page!
