After successfully launching Super Mario Run on iOS, Nintendo confirmed another mobile title, Fire Emblem Heroes. Although we knew the Japanese studio will launch a Fire Emblem game, we didn't have any details on the upcoming title.
Today, Nintendo announced Fire Emblem Heroes will initially be launched on Android platform, while an iPhone/iPad version will be available at a later date. The game will be released in the Google Play Store on February 2, and it will be free to download with optional in-app purchases.
Fire Emblem Heroes is a tactical strategy game in which players summon famous heroes in the Fire Emblem universe to help them fight their enemies. The game is about two warring kingdoms in a bitter clash.
The tactical battles have been streamlined for on-the-go play, so players won't have any issues getting the hang of it. All summoned heroes can be leveled up to gain better stats, skills and weapons.
Nintendo also states that in some cases hero characters will become allies, while others will become enemy generals. The game features multiple maps populated by enemies, which must be defeated in order to complete a stage.
Aside from the main story mode, players can engage in other modes to level up their heroes or to compete against others, including Training Tower, Special Maps and Arena Duels.
On top of that, Nintendo promised that free and timely updates will add new characters and content for additional hours of gameplay as well.
