You better clear up some space on your phone, because Fire Emblem Heroes is coming.
Fire Emblem Heroes is a first for the series and apart of Nintendo’s plan to continue making mobile games. In Fire Emblem Heroes you’ll wage strategic battles and level up characters from various Fire Emblem titles. To do this you’ll use summoning orbs which can be acquired through gameplay or with micro-transactions.
Nintendo confirmed on Twitter that the game will feature “brand-new art, hand drawn by a variety of artists” and “newly recorded voices.” Players can drag an ally to an enemy unit to attack, or use traditional Fire Emblem controls on the touch screen. The iconic weapon triangle will make a return.
Nintendo has launched a “choose your legend” event on their official website where players can vote for their favourite characters from the Fire Emblem franchise. The characters that win (one male and one female) will be featured in Fire Emblem Heroes with special outfits to commemorate their victory.
Fire Emblem Heroes is due on Android devices February 2nd and will arrive on iOS devices “soon”. Check back later for more details.
