Meet Nintendo's First 'Fire Emblem' for Smartphones

Meet Nintendo's First 'Fire Emblem' for Smartphones”

In a press release, Nintendo also revealed that it will be possible to compete against other players and promised to support the game with "free and timely updates", which will "add new characters and content for additional hours of gameplay".

The turn-based battles see you moving each character into position on a six by eight grid, then unleashing their attacks or spells. Fire Emblem is now bigger than it's ever been, so big it's leaping off of Nintendo's hardware and onto your smartphone. Based on the Japanese-only title Fire Emblem Gaiden that originally released for the NES in 1992, Shadows of Valentia is being completely reworked to bring this gaming classic into the modern age. Heroes looks like it's going to be a simplified version of the classic Fire Emblem combat system. "Some familiar hero characters will become allies, while others will become enemy generals and take arms against you".

In her ZAM review of Fire Emblem: Fates, one of my favorite games of past year, Aevee Bee opens with the description "Fire Emblem: Fates is a fantasy chess game where you can make the chess pieces kiss".

Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia is coming to 3DS on May 19, which is a bit surprising considering the Nintendo Switch will have been out for two months by that point. While it still hasn't given a solid date, Nintendo is at least giving more details about the totally new Fire Emblem title that is coming to both Android and iOS. However, orbs come in a variety of different colors, and no matter whether you opt to amass them through playing or paying, the colors you receive will always be random.

Nintendo launched a promotion for Fire Emblem Heroes, the series' first mobile-exclusive entry, allowing fans to vote to get certain characters in the game. That game is coming this fall and is also coming to the New Nintendo 3DS.

Switch owners will also get a new official entry in the Fire Emblem series. The original 3DS will not be supported, presumably as a result of the technical issues surrounding Hyrule Warriors Legends.
