Fire Emblem Heroes: Doing fan service right

Fire Emblem Heroes: Doing fan service right

Today, after I finished with my classes, I started messing around with Fire Emblem Heroes, the new mobile game released by Nintendo just a few hours ago.  When the game was talked about just a few weeks ago in the Fire Emblem Direct I got pretty excited for it just based on the concept of a mobile phone Fire Emblem experience alone, and now that it’s here I’m very eagerly digging into every detail I can.

So far, I have nothing but good things to say about the game.  It has really solid design, gameplay and enough content within to probably have quite a long shelf life.  Of course, I’ve only spent about an hour or two playing, so I’ll be forming my opinions a bit more succinctly over the next couple of days.

As a matter of fact, I’m planning on writing a review of the game for the Daily Titan for our Monday edition this upcoming week.  I’ll have my most well-developed thoughts on paper for that.  However, depending on how much space I get on Kaleb’s A&E page, I might just be writing a more extended view of the game here after that comes out.

Until then, I’ll be around.  Playing games and doing homework during the downtime when my stamina is recharging (which, at a rate of one stamina every five minutes for a 50-point stamina bar… Should be about four and a sixth hours or so for a full charge).

While I’m doing that, enjoy what has so far been one of my favorite fight scenes:

Seriously, the art in this game is great.  Can’t wait to gush about it and annoy everyone in the newsroomwith how endlessly I can talk about small details in things that catch my fancy!

    1. Definitely! It’s way better than I expected it would be, all the combat and character attributes are much more complex then I imagined, and it makes things much more fun and strategic!

      I’m just waiting to summon some Sacred Stones heroes right now, that would make things even better for me.

      1. Haha, I know what you mean. I’m personally hoping I’ll get lucky enough to add Navarre to my team! 😀

        That said, do you share your writing on any other sites? I work over at Creators .Co (we’re part of Movie Pilot and Now Loading) and this is the sort of content that makes for an interesting read. Would you be open to the idea of crossposting your work on our Creators fansite? I’d be more than happy to help you get started. My e-mail and more info about us can be found on my page. (o^.^)b
