- Fire Emblem Heroes comes to smart devices: Nintendo launches its next mobile adventure when Fire Emblem Heroes arrives on mobile devices. For detailed information on release timings by OS, please check the Fire Emblem Heroes website. Fire Emblem Heroes is an original strategy-RPG about two warring kingdoms in a bitter clash. As a summoner, players build their army by calling upon Fire Emblem heroes from worlds that span the breadth of the series. Players will wage strategic tactical battles streamlined for on-the-go play and level up a mix of new combatants and legendary heroes. Some familiar hero characters will become allies, while others will become enemy generals and take arms against you. Players can enjoy the full majesty of tactical role playing on bite sized maps designed fit nicely on a smartphone screen, even when playing in short bursts. Lead your army with easy touch and drag controls, including the ability to attack by simply swiping an ally hero over an enemy. If you manage to defeat every enemy on a given map, victory will be yours. The heroes are depicted in new art hand-drawn by a variety of illustrators, and their voices have been newly recorded. Beyond the main story mode, players can engage in other modes to strengthen your army, compete against others, and more. Free and timely updates will continue to add new characters and content for additional hours of gameplay as well. For details on pre-registration please check the Fire Emblem Heroes website. Fire Emblem Heroes will be available for free download with options for additional purchases.
