Nintendo has recently named the second title that they will be bringing over to the mobile platform. And it comes from one of their most well-loved IPs.

Fire Emblem Heroes will be the representative of the Fire Emblem series on the mobile gaming platform. However, unlike the premium Super Mario Run, ‘Heroes’ will be free-to-play, reports Forbes.

It follows the same basic concept of previous Fire Emblem games while adapting some elements to better fit the mobile gaming platform.

One such adaptation is the use of mobile-friendly maps that are only as big as the screen itself. It also adapts a portrait mode only and utilizes swipes to control the turn-based combat. Thanks to its vertical orientation and what appears to be a hero gacha system, it may remind some of another popular hero-collecting game, Granblue Fantasy.


Similar to other hero-based free-to-play mobile games, in-game transactions will be available and will be the main revenue model. Alfred Bayle
