Some Initial Thoughts on Fire Emblem Heroes

Considering I wasn’t quite so hyped about a smartphone version of Fire Emblem, what was shown in the trailer was certainly…interesting.

Coming to Google Play and Android February 2, Fire Emblem Heroes is definitely out for all the moneysss! Highlights:

  • Story: “A world with two kingdoms: the Emblian Empire, which wishes to rule all worlds, and the Askran Kingdom, which stands in its way. You are a summoner with the special ability to call upon legendary Heroes from different Fire Emblem worlds. In order to save the Kingdom of Askr from destruction, join the Order of Heroes and face a never-ending challenge.”

    This is probably the best way to integrate Fire Emblem onto mobile: be able to summon different types of characters from different FE games and fight on pretty simple maps. Not a surprise.

  • There’s a lot to digest, which includes understanding the “Weapons Triangle”, “Summoning Heroes”, Skills, etc. My guess is it’ll be way easier to understand when we can actually play it.
  • I was wondering how we would be able to interact with others, and having arena battles is definitely it. Definitely something to prep for.
  • February 2 seems super early, until you realize this was already delayed. So they might have had time to refine things and do additional artwork for the characters. It’s pretty cool to see.

What do you guys think of this mobile iteration of Fire Emblem? Does this just make you want to play FE all over again until its release next month?
