Fire Emblem Heroes has added a few new playable characters to the popular mobile game.

Nintendo arrived a little late to smartphone gaming, but it’s certainly been making up for that lately. Pokemon GO is still the company’s flagship mobile title, while Fire Emblem Heroes is raking in quite a bit of cash. So it’s no surprise that Nintendo is offering regular mobile content, the latest of which is three new heroes for … er, Fire Emblem Heroes.

The new characters were revealed through a video on Nintendo’s YouTube channel, complete with their relevant stats. Each hero is detailed below:
