 The story for Fire Emblem Heroes is compelling and tells a story that entwines all the characters and the world together. The story follows new characters to the series and does a good job at explaining the state of the realm that the game takes place in. The story has surprises that can keep players on their toes after the initial prologue story chapters.


Fire Emblem Heroes follows the traditional battle system that fans of the series have come to know and love. Following the weapon effect triangle as in previous titles and with the turn based strategy battles it makes the game play solid. One of the features that make the game play intriguing is the element of summoning past heroes from previous titles and using them in your party to take down enemies.

Another compelling appeal to this title is that it introduces event battles to gather special rewards. Event battles aren’t the only compelling element that has been introduced besides the story mode, the game also features leveling designed events to help train newly recruited characters.


This title has an impressive visual appearance due to the vector art that is used. Fire Emblem Heroes utilizes the vector art and it blends well with the anime art form that Fire Emblem has used since the beginning. The animations for the title are flawless and realistic, it gives the appearances that the characters are individuals.

Heroes has a soundtrack that gives the player a sense of the world that they are interacting in. The game also features an English Dub for players to not only follow the story but to also let players remember the characters the way they were introduced to them. The performance for this title is a solid attempt to bring the series to mobile devices. The game incorporates use of the touch screen to allow for easy navigation in the menu and it also adds quick actions inside of battles.
