During a Nintendo Direct today, Nintendo fully revealed its Fire Emblem mobile game, Fire Emblem Heroes, which will be available on Google Play for Android on February 2nd, and “soon” on iPhone and iPad.
An animated cutscene intro was shown off for the game, and Nintendo confirmed that the game features “brand-new art, hand drawn by a variety of artists” and “newly recorded voices.” Each map will be an 8×6 grid built for smartphones. Players can drag an ally to an enemy unit to attack, or use traditional Fire Emblem controls on the touch screen. The series’ weapon triangle will also return.
Players will take on the role of a summoner and summon characters from the Fire Emblem series to build their team. Orbs are used to summon additional characters, and they can be earned through gameplay or purchased within the app. Players will also be able to visit a Training Tower to level up their heroes.
