Earlier today Nintendo of America teased spring themed content. In a quick turn of fates, Nintendo has revealed Fire Emblem Heroes‘ future Easter themed content — in all of its bunny-fulness. This will include 4 existing characters in new outfits, as well as “paralogue maps and special quests.” This will all be coming soon, on March 30th, which is only a little over a day.
Interestingly, all the characters will be bearing new weapon types. Chrom, traditionally a sword wielder, is now using an ax. Lucina, also traditionally a sword wielder, will be using a Blue tome. Xander, who usually uses a sword, will be wielding a spear, specifically a giant carrot (that’s a sentence I never thought I would write.) And Camilla, who usually wields an ax, will be using a Green tome. This gives her the distinction of being the first unit that is both flying and able to use magic in Fire Emblem: Heroes, which I find intriguing.
It is currently unknown exactly what the “paralogue maps and special quests” will consist of. If everything follows course, you should expect 3 paralogue maps available on all 3 difficulties, which reward an orb each (for a total of 9 orbs).
What do you think? Is Easter Themed Fire Emblem content cool, or are they taking fanservice too far? Let us know in the comments below. Let’s get a healthy debate!
