Fire Emblem Heroes brings despair & hope in Path of Radiance event


I'll just take the Hope, thanks

Nintendo has released a new trailer featuring the newest update for mobile battler Fire Emblem Heroes. The "Despair & Hope" summoning event adds a quartet of characters from 2005 GameCube release Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance.

Being added to the orb-guzzling summoning stone are the wistful and perpetually hungry mage, Ilyana, the moody and sharp-tongued archer, Shinon, the steadfast but easily-wooed knight, Gatrie, and finally the valiant Wyvern master Jill. You can check out the four new heroes and their mad skills below.

As always, the new characters are accompanied by a new paralogue chapter. This time around, the mini-mission is titled "Plumeria's Dream." In addition, pulling 40 heroes from the Despair & Hope event will bag you a guaranteed five-star hero from the new quartet. The Despair & Hope event is live in-game right now.

Fire Emblem Heroes is available now on iOS and Android devices.
