Since the beginning, Fire Emblem Heroes has been having gamers cast votes for special “legends” characters that they’d like to see get special forms in the game. Last year saw Ike, Lyn, Roy, and Lucina get special forms, and now, the 2018 version of “Choose Your Legends” has come, and the winning characters had their new forms revealed in a new edition of Feh Channel.
As revealed in the video below (skip to 34:00), Hector, Celica, Ephraim and Veronica were the winners. This is especially interesting for two reasons. One, just like last year, all four characters are from four different Fire Emblem titles, and two, Veronica has only been in Fire Emblem Heroes, which shows her growing popularity.
Hector will be dressed as his brother from Blazing Blade and wield the legendary blade Maltet. Celica will wield the Royal Sword, and in a fun twist, will dress like her original character did in Fire Emblem Gaiden. Ephraim will dress as his father, and wield the Grado axe known as Gram. And Veronica will wield a staff called Hlioskjalf, and will dress like her brother Bruno.
Furthermore, Feh Channel noted that the Choose Your Legends banner will go live at 2AM Central time on the 21st, and just like last year, you’ll be able to select one character to summon for free.
Finally, the Forging Bonds event will return will all four CYL characters being a part of it. Fire Emblem Heroes has done it again, and these four characters are clearly very powerful, so you’ll want to save up your orbs (or pay tribute to the RNG gods) to get them.
