'Fire Emblem Heroes' is Nintendo's next mobile game, launches in February

'Fire Emblem Heroes' is Nintendo's next mobile game, launches in February

Less than a week later, the company has announced additional information at a special Nintendo Direct event - not one, not two, but three other Fire Emblem games are on the way, and they'll all be available by 2018. In practice, that translates to short bursts of action, touch-based gesture controls, and "bite-sized" maps that can fit on your smartphone screen. "Some familiar hero characters will become allies, while others will become enemy generals and take arms against you". You know when to expect them and can prepare accordingly.

So what did you think of all these titles? Certain towns and dungeons will also let you explore from a traditional third-person perspective, and combat looks to be relatively unchanged from the more recent Fire Emblem games. The game will arrive on iOS "soon".

Also unlike Super Mario Run, this iteration of FE will be free-to-play, although Nintendo didn't specify just how that premise would play out. In the meantime, enjoy a trailer.

'Fire Emblem Heroes' is Nintendo's next mobile game, launches in February

Switch owners will also get a new official entry in the Fire Emblem series.

This is different than the monetization schemes Nintendo has built into its existing mobile games - the recently-released Super Mario Run has only one ($10) IAP to unlock the full game, while last year's Miitomo did offer players the option to buy in-game currency for real money. This isn't a direct port, mind you, but more of a remake. The game won't be arriving until 2018, and is now just known as Fire Emblem for Nintendo Switch. Like before, you can pre-registering to grab the game right here. Now Nintendo is happy to announce a cadre of titles coming to Nintendo 3DS, mobile, and the Nintendo Switch.

Fire Emblem Mainline title - This is a Fire Emblem copy reserved for Nintendo Switch, implying that it will be the most high quality release. "Players will wage strategic tactical battles streamlined for on-the-go play and level up a mix of new combatants and legendary heroes". However, this will be the first console game in the series since Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn, which dropped during the Wii era.
