Nintendo will launch the "Fire Emblem Heroes" on Android on Feb. 2, which marks the second official game of the company for the Android platform. The announcement was made during the "Fire Emblem" Direct event, which also revealed other details regarding the new games in the "Fire Emblem" franchise.

Nintendo's "Fire Emblem Heroes" Will Be A Tactical RPG Game

The upcoming "Fire Emblem Heroes" game is expected to be a tactical RPG style, which means the Nintendo players can experience in-depth elements such as leveling up the iconic characters and providing them with new items and gears. Given that the game will be a tactical RPG, the battles are going to employ turn-based combat, wherein the players and their enemies will take turns to completing the attacks.

Nintendo's "Fire Emblem Heroes" game will feature a specific color type related to the character, either to make or break every battle as certain colors are expected to be weaker or stronger than other color types. This feature is expected to work as either an advantage or disadvantage in combat, which means the players are required to think strategically when choosing who they put in battle against certain enemies, Android Headlines reported.

Nintendo Switch Will Get New Fire Emblem Title In 2018?

With the announcement of "Fire Emblem Heroes" for Android comes also Nintendo's revelation about the company's current project about a new "Fire Emblem" title for Switch that is set for release in 2018. While there is not much detail regarding the said project, reports suggest that it is going to be a "full-scale war."

Nintendo further revealed that the new title will mark the return of "Fire Emblem" to the home consoles following the "Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn" for Wii in 2007. Meantime, there is no artwork for the new entry in the "Fire Emblem" series for now, according to Gadgets.
