Fire Emblem: Heroes gets 4 new characters dressed in wedding gowns
Nintendo has just released a trailer video of its latest update that introduces new characters to the Fire Emblem: Heroes saga, as part of its ‘Bridal Blessings’ in-game event. The event runs from May 30th till June 13th and brings four five-star female heroes, Caeda, Charlotte, Codellia and Lyn - all dressed in wedding dresses. It’s the wedding season after all!
The video shows off different offensive and defensive skills for each ‘bride’, and offers a few clips of the animation of their unique skills. All ladies have their own battle phrases that are voiced by different artists. The video trailer specifically notes that the characters may not become available again in the future, and are here to stay only for the event.
Fire Emblem: Heroes is Nintendo’s second major go at the mobile gaming arena and managed to scoop in more than $5 million in its first eight days after release. The game made Nintendo more cash than Super Mario Run, even though Mario was downloaded more times than Fire Emblem. The in-app payments model has secured the Japanese company steadier and bulkier cash, relying on a different monetization strategy to the one in Mario.
Earlier this month, we told you that the Japanese company is prepping a game based on the Legend of Zelda, apparently looking to solidify its expansion as a mobile games producer. Nintendo is also expected to deliver a mobile version of Animal Crossing, but it has not given any detail, with regards to a launch date. All we know is that both games are expected to go live at some point in the current financial year, running till March, 2018.
