Nothing to report
Fireplace Emblem Heroes is getting a brand new batch of heroes this week, chosen by in style vote. And one among them isn’t the traditional hero you’d count on, however a anonymous NPC that grew to become a fan-favorite: the Gatekeeper from Fireplace Emblem: Three Homes.
Earlier this yr, Nintendo introduced the winners of the fan ballot for the Select Your Legends occasion, which might add particular variations of characters based mostly on in style vote. On the ladies’s facet, Three Homes‘ Marianne got here in first, adopted by Eirika from The Sacred Stones. And within the males’s division, the very well-known Marth got here in second to the Gatekeeper, who swept the polls with a whopping 72,267 votes.
The Gatekeeper, voiced by Kyle McCarley and with artwork by Yamada Akihiro, arrives with talents just like the Charging Horn, Detailed Report, and Harsh Command+. Extra importantly, his assault seems to be like he opens the gates of Garreg Mach Monastery to let free a military of Fireplace Emblem: Three Homes favorites. I believe I noticed Byleth, Sylvain, and Mercedes among the many charging forces within the video.
Beginning Aug. 17, 12 AM PT, particular variations of the Heroes chosen within the Select Your Legends: Spherical 5 occasion will seem within the New Heroes: Keepers of Religion summoning occasion! Additionally, the subsequent Grand Hero Battle with Pelleas: Ashnard’s Orphan will begin Aug. 18, 12 AM PT. #FEHeroes pic.twitter.com/cDGHTyLMzU

These 4 characters all get their very own variants, or within the Gatekeeper’s case their unit debut, in addition to elements in a brand new story chapter, Howling Descent. The summoning occasion will go reside on Aug. 17 at 12 a.m. PT, underneath the New Heroes: Keepers of Religion.
It’s been solely two years since Fireplace Emblem: Three Homes hit the Nintendo Change, but it surely nonetheless stands out as a significant entry for each the console and the sequence, at the very least in my guide. It wasn’t only a extremely produced, sprawling story with branching tales and a time-skip setup that felt harking back to Family tree of the Holy Struggle (nonetheless ready on that localization), however its characters have been so memorable.
The Gatekeeper was definitely a little bit of a fan-favorite, together with his cheery “nothing to report,” however seeing Marianne within the lineup right here too has jogged my memory of all the superb characters on this recreation. I’m glad the Gatekeeper is at the very least getting his due, and a spot within the huge “all people’s right here” of Fireplace Emblem Heroes.
