Today Nintendo and Intelligent systems revealed the Fire Emblem Heroes‘ summer event, titled Ylissean Summer.
The event will come with four heroes from Fire Emblem Awakening in swimsuits: Tiki, Frederick, Caius and Robin. It will also include its own paralogue story, and will be implemented today at 00:00 pacific time.
Alongside the new characters, players will also receive two orbs per day, and double SP during battles.
Nintendo also released a trailer, and a batch of screenshots showing the heroes and the Paralogue missions, and you can enjoy them all below. I’m not sure those are the heroes I would chose for a swimsuit event (where’s my Camilla Nintendo?) but I’ll take them.
Of course, the heroes will be available only for a limited time, and the event will end on July 31st, meaning that we have plenty of time to try our luck with the usually infuriating gacha mechanic.
Fire Emblem Heroes is currently available for iOS and Android.
