Following up on the record-breaking success of Super Mario Run, Nintendo has released exciting information about their next big iOS game. Are you ready? You sure? Okay, here it is: The hugely popular Fire Emblem series will be making its way to iPhone and iPad as early as next month!
Here's what IGN had to say:
As for the gameplay, IGN is reporting it will be similar, but different from Fire Emblem games in the past.
Players will take on the role of a summoner and summon characters from the Fire Emblem series to build their team. Orbs are used to summon additional characters, and they can be earned through gameplay or purchased within the app."
The part I find most intriguing about this is Nintendo's decision to include in-app purchases, something they seemed unwilling to do for Super Mario Run. No word on the cost (if any) of the initial download.
Personally, I'm a huge fan of the Fire Emblem series and am super pumped to hear my iPhone will be able to play Fire Emblem Heroes. The trailer on Nintendo Mobile's YouTube account sure has me excited that the classic anime art-style has stayed intact!

I don't see what's to be excited about. It looks fairly basic. I was disappointed by the opening graphics vs. the game play footage. Still, if you are excited, then I am curious. Looking forward to the Rene Fire Emblem Heroes guide. :)
Oh yeah another game to add to my IOS collection :) Sent from the iMore App
I'm a huge Fire Emblem fan, I can't wait for this game!
iOS got Mario Run first and Android gets Fire Emblem... I feel like we got the worse end of this release cycle. Sent from the iMore App
