Fire Emblem Heroes is getting a special springtime event tomorrow, according to a trailer for the update that’s now online. The “Spring Festival” will run from March 30 until April 13, and big fans of the series absolutely need to check it out for one key reason: bunny ears.
Just ahead of Easter, the game is getting festive by making four pastel- and rabbit-suit-clad heroes available to summon. These include three heroes already offered in the Fire Emblem Heroes’ grab bag, as well as one character making his in-game debut. Xander from Fire Emblem Fates is making a very magenta, very dapper entrance as part of the Spring Festival.
Polygon’s other Fire Emblem Heroes fanatic best described the hilarity that is Xander’s Easter look:
The other springtime styles are similarly surprising. Lucina looks nigh unrecognizable in her spring costume — we’ve never seen our girl so happy before!
This bright and bouncy Chrom … this is not the Chrom we know.
As for Camilla: Yep, that’s Camilla, alright.
Also part of the update is a special paralogue map, where players fight against the whole group of heroes. The whole thing starts at midnight PT on March 30, so hold onto those Orbs in the hopes of getting these Easter-fied faves.
