The player is described as a summoner that can summon heroes to build their dream army. Maps will be designed to fit on a smartphone screen where players can drag allies to enemy units or use traditional controls. In combat the iconic weapon triangle system will play a role including terrain types. Characters in Fire Emblem Heroes will be depicted with brand new artwork and newly recorded voices and while the main quest is the biggest draw, there will also be a “Training Tower” to level up heroes to acquire new skills and more.
