Fire Emblem Warriors coming to New 3DS
Fire Emblem Warriors is coming to New Nintendo 3DS and the Nintendo Switch this fall.
Fire Emblem Heroes coming to Android next month
Fire Emblem is making its first smartphone appearance next month with Fire Emblem Heroes. It’s a tactical role-playing game where “fate has brought two warring kingdoms together in a bitter clash” that takes place on an 8×6 grid.
You’ll also level up familiar characters and fans will find the “battle intensity” they’ve come to expect from the series. According to footage, in-app purchases will be seen in the form of summoning orbs that call in additional heroes for help during battle. A purchase screen shows a 35-pack setting you back $20, and a three-pack clocking in at $1.99.
Pre-registration (alerting you when it’ll be released) starts today, with the game launching on Feb. 2 on Android and “soon” for iOS.
