There are a staggering amount of seasonal and limited variants available in Fire Emblem Heroes right now, so naturally they’re going to throw another batch at us to celebrate another holiday. Overlapping with Winter celebrations comes the New Year, adding in four new alts of familiar characters – one of which was sorely overdue.

Leading the batch is Askran commander and Fire Emblem’s premier shopkeep, Anna! This is her first alt in the game’s entire lifetime, and only the second red bow user. We’ve also got a few other firsts in the form of Selkie and Lethe, being the first beast units on a limited focus and stretching the limit on how much of a weapon description I’m willing to read. Lastly we have another new Duo in siblings Alfonse and Sharena.

These special, Renewed Spirit heroes will be available (if you’re lucky enough to summon them) starting December 31st at 11:00 pm PT and will be around for the whole month of January and then some. Shortly after their arrival you’ll also be able to earn a New Year version of Eir via a new Tempest Trials+. Better start scrounging for orbs now!
