Fire Emblem Heroes sent shockwaves throughout the Fire Emblem fanbase when it announced that not only would fans be able to summon their favorite character to fight with them on the battlefield, but that they could vote for their favorite character to not only be in the game, but have a significant role, AND, get an exclusive outfit.
The “Choose Your Legends” event has been underway since the Fire Emblem Direct last week, and fans have been going crazy voting for their favorite Fire Emblem characters. To show off who is leading the polls, the official Fire Emblem Heroes Japanese Twitter feed made posts about who’s getting the most votes, and you may be surprised by who’s leading.
Top of the charts? Lyn, from Fire Emblem Blazing Sword, aka Rekka No Ken. Lyn has long been a fan-favorite and has been asked by fans to be in Super Smash Bros. for some time. So maybe to them, this is her chance to stand above her fellow Lords.
Which brings us to No.2: Lucina from Fire Emblem Awakening. Another fan-favorite character, Lucina has made an impact since her introduction and was in Super Smash Bros. too.
No. 3? Ike, from Fire Emblem Path of Radiance. Ike is no surprise here (especially to me!!!), as he’s one of the Lords that really brought fans into Fire Emblem. And, as one of the only console Lords, he stands out above the rest in many ways. And yes, his appearance in Super Smash Bros. helps too.
Now, these are just the results as of Monday, so things can still change. So, if you want your character to be featured in the game, just keep on voting! But also, think about what teams you want to make in Fire Emblem Heroes! If you need some suggestions, listen to the teams we made on the latest Nintendo Entertainment Podcast!
