In anticipation for the release of Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia next month, Nintendo’s free-to-play mobile title Fire Emblem Heroes is getting an update that adds characters featured in the upcoming 3DS game.
The update, dubbed “World of Shadows,” releases on April 14 and adds Alm, the Hero of Prophecy, Clair, the Highborn Flier, Lukas, the Sharp Soldier, and Faye, the Devoted Heart.
A new Paralouge accompanying the character additions will be featured in the update as well.
IGN spoke with Fire Emblem Heroes game director Kouhei Maeda regarding the team’s post-launch plans for Heroes earlier this year. When asked about the possibility of new content that ties into future Fire Emblems games, Maeda remained tight-lipped, saying, “we can’t discuss details at this time, but I hope you’ll be willing to be patient with us.”
