Time to recruit your faves

Nintendo

Nintendo launched a promotion for Fire Emblem Heroes, the series’ first mobile-exclusive entry, allowing fans to vote to get certain characters in the game. The “Choose Your Heroes” campaign is running now, and it has extra rewards for Nintendo Account holders.

Visiting the campaign page, players are given the option to link their Nintendo Accounts. Doing so will earn them 200 Platinum points, which can be used to redeem gifts and discounts from My Nintendo.

Visitors won’t just get points for linking their account, however. They’ll be rewarded the My Nintendo points after casting their first vote for one of a plethora of classic Fire Emblem heroes, spanning the entire franchise. Nearly every character from games like Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones and last year’s Fire Emblem Fates are on the ballot, and fans can cast a vote for their favorite once per day.

The campaign will determine the two most popular heroes in all of Fire Emblem: one male, one female. The winning pair will appear in Fire Emblem Heroes when it launches, and they’ll have special outfits to commemorate their victory.

The event runs until Jan. 31 at 9:59 p.m. PT. After it ends, Nintendo will continue to offer rewards to voters; the company will release special wallpapers with the 10 most popular pairings throughout the end of 2017.

Fire Emblem Heroes is due on Android Feb. 2, Nintendo announced during the Fire Emblem presentation. The game will arrive on iOS “soon.”
