Here’s a title some of you might be familiar with. The latest version of Fire Emblem Heroes is a spin-off from the Nintendo series that has been running for years. This is the developer’s attempt to cash in on the mobile game market. Let’s see how they did so far with this latest version of the game.
The latest version of Fire Emblem Heroes
The game is a turn-based strategy game where players must control units and use them to defeat enemies. The game features a chess-like form of playing. Players shouldn’t just rush in, but think carefully about their moves before making them. The game also incorporates RPG elements. If you like inserting yourself into the shoes of some fictional character and going on epic adventures. This is the game for you.
The game starts with you creating a character and choosing his/her name. Thereafter, you are dropped right in the middle of a war. The war is being waged by the two fictional countries of Askr and Embla. Your character is burdened with the immense task of protecting the borders of Askr and furthering the war efforts of the Kingdom in the process.
In the latest version of the game players of the series will feel comfortable with the familiar art style and gameplay. The characters appear on-screen in amazing detail. Here they have conversations and expand the story through scripted cutscenes. On the battlefield, however, the units and heroes are displayed as 2-dimensional sprites. You command these units in turn-based combat from a bird’s view. That’s where the strategy comes into play and you really need to focus on what you’re doing, otherwise, you’ll find yourself on the losing side of the war.
The heroes in the game are true RPG characters with different classes. Each class of hero will have different stats and abilities.
In-app purchases and download
The game is free to download and play, but users will encounter in-app purchases. The currency used in the game is called Orbs. You can earn Orbs without purchase through advancing in the game. The more serious players will want to purchase Orbs for upgrading their castle, restoring stamina and recruiting new heroes to fight for your cause. Here is where Nintendo players might have a problem with this addition to the series. The old games never needed in-game purchases. Considering the application is free, this makes sense. They need to make money somehow, don’t they?
Overall, the game is very fun to play. Even if you’re just an anime fan, you will enjoy the art style of the game. The story is another great thing about the game. If you’re interested in the game, no need to go anywhere else but the top of this page and clicking on the green download button. You will be magically taken to the Gooogle Play Store where you can download the latest version of Fire Emblem Heroes. Join the fight for Askr and become the hero you always dreamed you were.
