Nope, and to also answer TP's question, I doubt they'd change existing characters. They didn't change any of the old dragons over when they added a colorless dragon type. (Also, this was easy to miss. They didn't call it out; there were just new colored bow icons shown in the skill filter picture. Sort of how they hinted colorless dragons the last time just by adding the icon, too. So I wouldn't expect to officially hear anything for a few weeks).
But I like the idea. I feel like most bow users right now are the same and there's very little difference between them, and once you've played for as long as I have, very little appeal in going for newer bow users. There are TONS of archers in this series, and now they can add more without them just being more of the same.
I also feel like this mightl help flying units a bit. Like maybe my blue flier can survive an attack from a red bow or something, when before would be previously doomed by bows.
