New heroes have joined the fray!

Beginning April 29, four new Fire Emblem heroes will find their way into the Kingdom of Alberia to face off against the Dyrenell Empire!

Sharena

"If being bright and cheerful all the time lifts everyone's spirits, then that's just what I'll do!"

Much like her elder brother, Princess Sharena has now found her way into the kingdom of Alberia. A new hero introduced in Kindred Ties, Sharena will join your team as a temporary adventurer, By battling alongside her, you can forge a bond that will outlast this event.

Peony

"You can do whatever you want in a dream! Aaaanything is possible!"

Peony, a faerie from the dream realm Ljósálfar, is excited to meet a faerie of the waking world. Upon finding herself in the Kingdom of Alberia, she quickly befriends your faerie friend Notte. Peony can be summoned in the new Fire Emblem summon showcase. Peony can also be faced in an epic boss battle.

Chrom

"Our bonds are far stronger than fate."

Chrom, the prince of Ylisse, enters the world of Dragalia Lost first as an opponent. He is a direct descendent of Marth and a powerful adventurer you can add to your team through the new Fire Emblem summon showcase. Chrom can also be faced in an epic boss battle.

Tiki

"I'll do my best!"

Tiki, princess of the Divine Dragon Tribe, is the first Fire Emblem dragon to cross over into Dragalia Lost. Much like the Fire Wyrm, Brunhilda, Tiki often appears as a beautiful young woman, but when necessary, she can transform into a mighty dragon. Tiki can be summoned through the new Fire Emblem summon showcase. Tiki can also be faced in an epic boss battle in her dragon form.

Co-op defensive battles

Players will also be able to use the new Artillary Barrage quest skill, only available for these defensive battles, to wipe out many soldiers at once. These quests will require strategy and teamwork from all involved.

Coliseum

A new type of battle is being added during the second half of the Kindred Ties event. Coliseum battles will present five waves of powerful heroes featuring many popular adventurers you may already have on your team!

The first wave will feature the Alberian Knight Lea. The second wave will feature the fortune teller, Verica and the lithomancer, Naveed. The third wave will feature blacksmiths Ramona and Rena. The fourth wave will feature Android Commander Laxi and her fellow Combat Androids. The final wave will pit you against Luca's little sister, Sarisse and the fire wyrm herself, Brunhilda. The more waves you survive, the greater your rewards. Players looking for an even greater challenge can really test their limits with the greater difficulty settings.

Familiar faces have returned!

In addition to all the new features and characters coming with Kindred Ties, the Fire Emblem: Lost Heroes revival event is also running. During this revival event, you can play through the storyline of the last Fire Emblem event, gain the trust of Prince Alfonse, and earn tons of rewards. If Prince Alfonse didn't join your team during the Fire Emblem: Lost Heroes event, you have another chance at earning this hero for free. In addition, all the previous heroes available for summoning have returned.

Although Veronica serves as the primary antagonist of Fire Emblem Heroes, her role in Dragalia Lost is far less clear.

She joined forces with you to fight back against the Dyrenell Empire and eventually return to her own world. A dark attuned wand user, Veronica can be summoned in the Fire Emblem: Lost Heroes summon showcase and has also seen the addition of a Mana Spiral during the revival event.
