Today, I will be writing a personal review on a new game app that was just released (free) on the 2nd February 2017 by Nintendo on the Fire Emblem series. Ever since the released of Fire Emblem: Awakening and Fire Emblem Fates, the Fire Emblem series fans have grown a lot and received more wold-wide attention then ever before. I was 1 of the many million people out there who have grown to love the gameplay, art style, and the story of Fire Emblem. So when Nintendo released a new Fire Emblem Heroes for the phone this February, I was extremely excited and had to try this game no matter what. I downloaded the game from the Android play store and voila! I couldn’t stop playing it.
Since Fire Emblem Heroes was just released, many free orbs (used for summoning) are being given out daily. This game consists of a 9 chapters story (so far), with 3 modes (normal, hard, lunatic), an arena for pvp battles, a training tower and a special maps area. The game offers very smooth gameplay, battle system, old and new characters, and beautifully drawn graphics with decent English dubbing. Unlike many other apps out there, I personally didn’t feel the need to spend real money to get rare and powerful characters. The rare summoning rates are not as bad as other games and almost every player I have battled so far have got at least 1 rare character (even though the app just released).
There are only 2 bad points about this game. The 1st bad point is the length of the story. All 9 chapters can be completed rather quickly (I completed all 9 chapters in normal mode in 1-2 days) – so the story content is definitely lacking as of now, but I am sure there will be more story content in the near future. The 2nd bad point would be the fact that you have to constantly be online in order to play the game, although this isn’t really a huge problem.
Anyways, if you are looking for a new game to play on your phone, or a Fire Emblem/Nintendo fan, give this game a go! Nintendo has definitely done a great work on this app (despite what a few critics might say) and I can’t wait for the next Fire Emblem game remake coming out on the 3DS later this year!
