The forthcoming title will interconnect the gap between different Fire Emblem games, allowing players to summon players from different titles and engage in battles:
“Players will wage tactical battles streamlined for on-the-go play and level up a mix of new combatants and legendary heroes. Some familiar hero characters will become allies, while others will become enemy generals. Players can enjoy the full majesty of tactical role playing on bite-sized maps designed to fit nicely on a smartphone screen, even when playing in short bursts. Players lead their armies with easy touch-and-drag controls, including the ability to attack by simply swiping an ally hero over an enemy. If they manage to defeat every enemy on a given map, victory will be theirs.”
Speaking of visuals, Fire Emblem Heroes will feature will fresh art with hand-drawn illustrations from around the world. Speech has been recorded from scratch as well.
