Lucius is The Light, as evidenced by his support abilities. He will be one of the game’s multiple buffers. Priscilla carries the title Delicate Princess, but she is no pushover. She has a variety of support spells as well. Lastly, Ninian arrives as the Oracle of Destiny. She can transform into a variety of creatures to unleash strong attacks.
New Features, Updates
Interestingly, Game Rant said the update will also come with Paralogue Missions. These are quests that help newcomers get familiar with these characters. Each new hero will get three Paralogue stories.
Players who complete these quests in their various difficulties will give them summon orbs. This means fans can get nine orbs in the update. Gamers can use orbs to purchase new upgrades or heroes in the game. Additionally, fans who supported Lucina in the Voting Gauntlet will also get free Hero Feathers.
However, Nintendo plans to give more freebies to players. Nintendo appears to have launched a competition in Twitter. The company will reward all players of the game with five orbs if this tweet is retweeted 50,000 times. Gamers can expect the free orbs this week as this tweet has already been retweeted 70,000 times.
It appears Nintendo really is sticking to its promise of giving Heroes new updates twice a month. Unfortunately, there’s no news about the next update for the mobile title. Players can experience Heroes in their iOS and Android devices as a free download.
