After a very long wait Fire Emblem Heroes has finally arrived on the US Apple App Store and Google Play. Nintendo decided to go with a free-to-play model instead of launching the RPG as a premium title, like it did with Super Mario Run. Heroes is a story-driven, turn-based battle game with simple touch-screen swipe controls. You can read a more in-depth review here, and download the second Nintendo mobile title here.
