Like Fire Emblem games before it, Heroes is a tactical role-playing game that utilizes turn-based combat.
The most noteworthy of the three new titles is Fire Emblem Warriors because it is considered to be a major new game in the Fire Emblem franchise.
A quartet of new entries to the "Fire Emblem" strategy adventure franchise - "Fire Emblem: Heroes", "Fire Emblem Echoes", "Fire Emblem Warriors" and a fourth, untitled release - span mobile and console devices and have been made the focus of a separate Nintendo Direct video following the company's Switch presentation the previous week.
To be clear, you can not play this game on a standard Nintendo 3DS system- which is probably for the best.
Nintendo's Fire Emblem Direct presentation ended up delivering a mix of the expected and the surprisingly unexpected. Not much is known about this title, but it is nice to hear that Switch owners will get a traditional Fire Emblem game to go along with the previously announced hack-and-slash Fire Emblem Warriors. I think fans of these kinds of games will find it pretty exciting.

SpaceX hopes to launch 20 to 24 rockets this year, an aggressive pace given that eight missions were completed in 2016. An investigation has been made about the accident by NASA, the FAA and the Air Force, as Fox News reports .
Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia launches May 19 around the world.
It's a 25th anniversary remake of 1992 release "Fire Emblem Gaiden", and after all these years represents a first official opportunity to play the game in languages other than Japanese. But the Fire Emblem Heroes announcement is far more interesting.
On Feb. 2, Fire Emblem Heroes will launch on both iOS and Android with "fight battles customized for touch screens and on-the-go gameplay". The game will include new artwork and voices for each hero.
You'll also level up familiar characters and fans will "find the battle intensity they've come to expect from the series".
