The joy of the holidays is just starting to grow,
With Christmas decor, and fresh fallen snow.
Yet Fire Emblem Heroes planned a bit ahead,
By revealing something festive just before I left for bed.

So as you “Awaken” and open your eyes,
Look upon this special, Yuletide surprise!
There’s Lissa, there’s Tharja; there’s Robin and Chrom,
Time to part with your orbs, to wish them so long…

For these unique winter heroes, with new art and new skills,
Show the devs know our weakness, those pandering shills…
Months ago we complained about horses galore,
Now here in December, it’s: “Armor? No more!”

But alas, I digress, I’m still fond and enticed,
To pull one or two of these variants sure would be nice…
Mark your calendars now and get on those new maps,
You could save enough to earn them…if you’re lucky, perhaps

Yet for all of you summoners, so lucky and bold,
We hope this focus won’t leave you broken and cold.
For tis the season of giving, of wonder and cheer!
Though if worst comes to worst, there’s always next year…


With that caroling out of the way, it’s time to get ready for the next new batch of seasonal variants coming to Fire Emblem Heroes! Awakening’s in the spotlight this time, with four, fully armored characters making their way into the game. They definitely look enticing, with new skills and availability for all you Arena veterans to pull for. More importantly though, just look at all three and a half of those outfits!

Remember, these are seasonal so they’ll only be around for a limited time. Starting the night of December 17th this Focus will go live, and will be right up until the New Year. May the holidays bring you that extra bit of magic you need to get exactly what’s on your list, and as always: good luck!
