■ Original characters meet legendary Heroes

Good news for users who have concerns about storage space on their devices: You can now choose between High Quality and Lite Data versions of the game data. Lite Data reduces the amount of data that needs to be downloaded by lowering image and voice quality. This is particularly helpful for those on the go. (The high quality version can be downloaded at any time.)
Grand Hero Battles have a new, harder difficulty mode as well.
Ratings and Reviews
Here’s a colorful 6x8 grid. Here’s a zillion Fire Emblem characters. But the skills required to win each turn-based battle? Nintendo doesn’t give you that. Fans are going to be thrilled with Nintendo’s faithful streamlining—heaps of strategy are required in this tactical RPG. But even if you’ve never heard of Fire Emblem, you're bound to dig the epic story and super-varied art styles.
I really like games of chance and FE
One of the most satisfying things in Fire Emblem games is seeing your character do a crit animation and knowing the enemy is either about to die or get severely weakened. While this app doesn’t have that, there is an element of chance in getting heroes you want. While I generally keep low expectations, I constantly am pleasantly surprised when I see those five stars fall into place across my screen.
Regarding the gameplay, I certainly enjoy fire emblem more, but the customizability of the characters’ skills and the ability to make any character a solid threat through enough investment make the game fun. While events and new story are the main fun of the game, I still occasionally enjoy training up my units and seeing them completely destroy the enemy arena/hero battle team, but if IS stopped doing events I’d probably lose interest a lot faster than in the main games.
I genuinely think this game is more fun the more Fire Emblem games you play, so if you are reading this and you’ve only played one or two fire emblem games, give this a shot and then try some of the other games if you find characters are too unfamiliar
Also, I’ve been playing since launch and have several dozen 5* heroes f2p so, while I hardly spent any money on this game, I recommend reserving spending to a last resort and after a lot of careful consideration...after all, gambling only stops being fun when you lose all your money
Oof, The Hate Isn’t Valid
I love this game. I haven’t been playing Fire Emblem for long, and I started with Awakening, but even if I’m not fully familiar with all the characters, I have a lot of fun collecting them. :^)) It’s enjoyable when there are events lined up and good rewards to get, but there are break periods sometimes with nothing to do. It’s not completely perfect, as it should be. Sometimes I feel that certain maps are too difficult and are appealing to ‘whales’, the extreme Pay to Play players, and my biggest problem is certain units that are very powerful and almost unable to be killed, like Instant Regnal Astra Ayra, but I don’t encounter them often. But I believe some of the other hate isn’t valid.
THIS GAME IS ABOUT CHANCE. If you’re summoning characters, you’re taking a risk. That’s the point, it’s a gatcha, but it’s definitely easier to play as F2P than a true Japanese gatcha game. Just having a 3% starting appearance rate is a blessing, compared to a 1% offered on other games. They do provide many opportunities to get orbs, it’s just the player’s choice to save them or use them. The game is pretty fair, and I think some of the bad reviews are just salty people who didn’t get who they wanted. :^/ I do sometimes pay for orbs, and I’ve had times where I didn’t get the character I wanted, but I still continue to play. It’s fun and worth trying! Don’t be discouraged and stop playing when you don’t get who you want because there are many other opportunities! 💕
