Dust off your bunny outfits because the Spring Festival has begun in the World of Awakening in Fire Emblem: Heroes!
Seasonal versions of Xander, Camilla, Lucina, and Chrom have been released as part of the Spring Festival. In addition to their festive outfits, these alternative versions have different skills and unit types than the original ones. Here’s a quick overview of each unit:
Xander wields a Carrot Lance and possesses the unique skill “Live for Honor”, which yields 1.5x normal badges from Training Tower maps if he survives. Camilla is a Green Egg (tome) user with the exclusive ability “Live for Bounty”. The description for Live for Bounty is the same as Xander’s Live for Honor, but this has been verified as a translation error. In the Japanese version of Fire Emblem: Heroes, the skill says “結晶” which translates to “crystal”. Therefore, in reality, Live for Bounty produces 1.5x crystals instead of badges.
Lucina employs a Blue Egg (tome) and has a unique skill “Swift Sparrow” which grants her an additional four attack and speed during any battle that she initiates. Chrom possesses a Carrot Axe and has the unique ability “Axe Experience” which grants all allied axe users (including himself) 2x EXP as long as he survives. All four units recover 4 HP after any battle that they have initiated with their seasonal weapons.
For the duration of the Spring Festival, players have an increased chance of summoning the new heroes from the Spring Festival banner.
Paralogue 4: Spring Festival has been released too. As with all other paralogues, Paralogue 4 consists of three maps which can be completed on Normal, Hard, and Lunatic difficulties. Quests tied to Paralogue 4 are also available now. In order to complete the quests, players are required to overcome Paralogue 4 maps with specific types of units on their team.
Watch the official video by Nintendo for a quick look at the event:
The Spring Festival runs until April 14th at 2:59 a.m. EST. After the event concludes, the seasonal heroes will be retired indefinitely so make sure to summon them beforehand!
