Nintendo on Wednesday announced that its next game released for mobile will be a new entry from the popular Fire Emblem franchise. It’s called Fire Emblem Heroes, and it is slated to launch on iOS and Android on February 2.

Like other FE titles, Heroes is a tactical roleplaying game with upgradeable characters from the series. In this all-new storyline, players are tasked with summoning warriors to fight in epic battles between two warring kingdoms.

As you can see in the trailer, Heroes will feature turn-based gameplay, fought over a smaller 8×6 battle grid designed for smartphones. The game controls consist of swiping and tapping, allowing for simple, one-handed gameplay.

Similar to its strategy in Super Mario Run, Nintendo says Fire Emblem Heroes will be free-to-play, with some in-app purchases. It’s taken a bit of criticism over that pricing, however, so it’ll be interesting to see if anything changes.

      Just in case you haven’t played any FE game, this. is. what. they. are. It’s a grid game -_-

    For the people in the comments who only play racing, fps and sports games, this is called an RPG strategy turn-stye game. It’s not a new genre of game, it’s just different. This is how they are played and this game looks really fun.
