Fire Emblem Heroes

Fire Emblem Heroes is just on the horizon. Next week, the mobile game will launch around the world.

It’s unclear how much space is required, and Nintendo is ready to give out a specific number. That being said, in a Nintendo customer support email, the company recommends 1 GB of free space. We should have a final answer in just a few days.


Nintendo just released part 2 of the “Heroes & Heroines” trailer for Fire Emblem Heroes, showing off a couple more of the game’s characters and their all-new artwork and voice samples. Give it a watch:

Some additional info has come out about Fire Emblem Heroes – from a customer service e-mail, no less. Reddit user SBelmont sent a mail to the Japanese Fire Emblem Heroes customer support, asking about whether or not the game will have one global server and whether or not players will be able to change the language of the in-game text and voices.

According to the response, there will indeed be one global server for all players, so the user base won’t be fragmented and split over multiple servers divided by region or language, as is the case with many mobile games. Players will also have the option to change the language of the in-game text, but aren’t able to change the language of the in-game voices. This was likely done to keep the download size of the game manageable, as audio files are usually quite large.

Fire Emblem Heroes will be released on iOS and Android devices on February 2nd.


It’s been about a week since the “Choose your Legends” vote opened for Fire Emblem Heroes. After giving a brief look at some of the leaders yesterday, Nintendo has since put out two images showing the full midterm standings.

Here are the results at the moment for both the heroes and heroines:

Voting for the Fire Emblem Heroes event ends on January 31.


Nintendo prepared a new Fire Emblem Heroes trailer today showcasing some of the characters included in its mobile game Fire Emblem Heroes. View it below.

As you probably know, a vote is currently underway for the upcoming Fire Emblem Heroes mobile game. Fans can vote for one character from the whole Fire Emblem series each day up until January 31st. The top ranking male and female characters will be added to Fire Emblem Heroes wearing a special outfit, while the top 10 male and female characters will receive special calendar wallpapers. The official Fire Emblem Heroes Twitter account revealed the current standings of the vote as of today:

  1. Lyn (Blazing Blade)
  2. Lucina (Awakening)
  3. Ike (Path of Radiance)

This would mean that if the vote were to end today, Lyn and Ike in special outfits would be added to Fire Emblem Heroes.

Fire Emblem Heroes was announced this week. It’s a big move for Nintendo, as it’s Fire Emblem’s first appearance on mobile as well as the company’s first attempt at the free-to-play market for smartphones.

According to the Fire Emblem Heroes website, the title will initially be coming to 39 countries. Nintendo does say though that more territories may be added.

The lineup is as follows:

Yesterday, Nintendo gave us a look at Fire Emblem Heroes, the first outing for Fire Emblem on mobile. Various maps were shown throughout the Fire Emblem Direct. Interestingly, these appear to be based on maps featured from previous titles.

Maps seem to be inspired by Nabata Desert, the map from Fire Emblem Awakening Chapter 7, the Soulful Bridge from Fire Emblem 3, and Pirates of Galder from Shadow Dragon.

Here’s a close look:

We can’t say that every single map in Fire Emblem Heroes will be a callback to past series entries. Still, this is rather neat to see. Fire Emblem Heroes encompasses the franchise as a whole in many ways, so the maps are another element of that.
