The latest batch of characters for Fire Emblem Heroes may be coming off the heels of both the game’s third anniversary and Valentine’s Day additions, but they’re potentially just as desirable for longtime fans. Hailing from North America’s first entry in the series Fire Emblem, or Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade, we’re getting heroes from the Dread Isle arc of that game.


Leading off for them is Nils, who like his sister Ninian, comes in as both a dragon and a dancer (or in this case, bard). Even though he’s sidelined compared to his sibling, he’s been one of my most wanted additions for the game since the beginning. Joining him are mounted archer Rath and pegasus knight Fiora, and another who’s perhaps the most surprising of all. Suiting the setting is Leila, an NPC spy in the original game in service to Ostia, alongside her love, Matthew.

These four and their focus will arrive in-game on February 16th, with wyvern rider Heath following as a Grand Hero Battle the following day.
