Nintendo announced characters from Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones will appear in Fire Emblem Heroes, including an Ascended version of Joshua. Additionally, there will be a new story chapter featuring Ascended Joshua and Veronica. Players will be able to obtain the new Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones characters in Fire Emblem Heroes starting on January 6, 2021.
Other characters that will appear alongside Ascended Joshua in Fire Emblem Heroes are Neimi, Rennac, and Colm. Neimi will arrive as a red bow infantry unit. Her unique ability grants her additional speed to herself and her allies when certain conditions are met. Rennac will appear as a green dagger infantry unit. His special ability will allow for Rennac to gain additional attack speed and damage. However, this effect is conditional. Colm will join the roster of Fire Emblem Heroes as a blue dagger infantry unit. His special ability grants Special cooldown. Lastly, Ascended Joshua will appear as a colorless dagger infantry unit. The special ability of Ascended Joshua accelerates his Special trigger, reducing the cooldown by 1. Like Rennac, certain affects for this ability are conditional.
