We all knew it was happening, it was just a matter of when: characters from Fire Emblem: Three Houses are coming to Fire Emblem Heroes, dropping on the 22nd of the month, mere days before the Switch game’s release on the 26th.
The initial offering of 3H characters is exactly the cut you’d expect – the three house leaders and main character Byleth, each with dazzling art and new skills. You’ll be able to roll for Edelgard (Axe Infantry), Dimitri (Lance Cavalry), Claude (Bow Cavalry), and Female Byleth (Sword Infantry), each of whom is obviously making their Heroes debut, and driving up hype for the Three Houses release next week.
If that wasn’t enough, the upcoming Grand Hero Battle will feature Kronya, one of Three Houses’ villains, set to start on August 3rd. And don’t forget that if you register Three Houses with your Nintendo Account, you’ll get a free copy of Male Byleth in Heroes (assuming that’s linked as well).
