The rollout of Fire Emblem: Heroes has begun. As of about 1:45AM CST, the game is starting to show up around the world in a number of countries, including Japan, Australia, New Zealand, and several European countries. If you don't have the game in your territory yet (notably North America) then hold on – it looks like the game is quickly propagating worldwide rather than just being available all at once. The Japanese version is the same as the English version on the iTunes store, so just mash this Fire Emblem Heroes iTunes link until it works. We'll update when the app is available worldwide, especially in the US and Canada. Note that there seems to be a similar situation going on with the Android version with a staggered rollout.

It'll be interesting to see how Fire Emblem Heroes plays and monetizes. It has many of the hallmarks of other DeNA games, so it could wind up being the most traditional free-to-play game of the bunch for Nintendo so far. But we'll see just how players and the market take to this, the third Nintendo mobile game (not counting The Pokemon Company games).

    • Ezman

      Sometimes I think that these tiny developers make these games just to pawn off of other games popularity and they do it horribly.

  • Michal Hochmajer

    Still not in Czech Republic...they probably can't find it on map..maybe pigeon post traffic is overhauled..

    • Hells Pawn

      Haha lol

  • Fireman4200

    I found it in the New Zealand AppStore. Just got it downloaded, been wanting to check this out! The only way I found it was by searching Nintendo and clicking on "Nintendo Co., Ltd." under the title of any Nintendo app to show all of their apps.

    • sstrngmnm

      Did that as well, but it won't let me begin downloading data

    • Michal Hochmajer

  • NeoZeitGeist

    Checking the American store Directly shows it as not being there as well though The Canadian store returns a message saying it's available very strange App Store LoL

  • Hells Pawn

    Thank you for the list 🙂

  • GalDrogo

    Hi. I typed ' Fire Emblem ' on my first attempt and it didnt work. Tried ' Fire Emblem Nintendo ' and it appeared. Give this a shot. Someone else here suggested trying ' Nintendo ' too. AUS AppStore btw.

  • David

    Saw a 20 minute preview on Polygon. It's HEAVILY IAP optimized... you buy orbs and can spend them on anything and everything. Specifically, you can use them to revive your entire party without restarting the level. This means you can pay your way to end of the game. I'm still downloading it, of course...

    • mabus51

      Of course it is. It's mobile and free2play. Honestly did anyone expect it would be different?

  • Silthoras

    Out in Germany as well

  • dereck ryan

    out in US?

    • xMikeys


  • elthesensai

    Still not out in the US. Trumps fault!

  • Luci0

  • Rogerio de Andrade

  • Kahdmus

    Any impressions yet?

  • XPI Sigma

    Nothin in Florida yet.

  • Luci0

    Come on apple snap out of it and get this game out for everyone to enjoy. Starting to get impatient

  • Kahdmus

    Any initial impressions?

    • mabus51

      Typical free2play tropes an hangups. Buy a real Fire Emblem game like Fates or Awakening.

    • Michal Hochmajer

      Slightly better typical f2p mobile game. If you are into fire emblem, you can consider this as companion game, where you collect your favorit heroes in gacha game. Gameplay = simplified rock/peper/scissor tringle. battles are simplified, but fun.
      They are giving anough orbs (all story levels 45*3+3 and giveaways). Looks like higher difficulty will be hell to beat tho. Relatively high chance to catch 4* hero(upgradable to 5*). I was lucky 2x5*, 2x4*. upgrading will be tough. 2 materials needed. big "color" emblem (don't know where to find yet) and feathers (you can get them in arena, but you need plenty of them and even with bonuses, it will take some time to gather enough). Everything is linked to orbs. You can continue battle by paying orb, you can upgrade castle by paying orbs (bonus 20,40,60,80,100 to exp), you can continue battle in arena by guess what. It is ignorable for casual player tho. Story is dumb, but ok. Best new hero in Fire Emblem series (Veronica, and i am not saying that only because it is my favorit girl's name. No she isn't antagonist,I sware). Did I forgot something?

      • Kahdmus

        Thank you! Really appreciate the great description, cheers!
