Fire Emblem Heroes is an original strategy RPG focused on the bitter clash between two kingdoms at war with each other. As summoners, players will consolidate their army by rallying Fire Emblem heroes from worlds that span the series as a whole. Players will engage in strategic tactical battles, streamlined for on-the-go play and also level up a group of new legendary fighters and heroes. Some characters among the familiar heroes will become allies, while others will become enemy generals and fight against you. Gamers will be able to enjoy tactical RPG in its majesty by playing on miniature maps designed to fit nicely on the smartphone screen, even when playing for short periods. Lead your army with touch and drag controls, which include the ability to attack simply by rubbing an allied hero against an enemy. If you manage to defeat every enemy on a given map, you will win the victory. The heroes will be represented by artistic drawings entirely hand made by various illustrators and their voices have been recorded from scratch. Beyond the main mode, players will be able to compete with other modes to strengthen their army, compete against others and much more. In addition, free and timely updates will continue to increase characters and content for additional hours of play. For details on pre-registration check the Fire Emblem Heroes website.
