Fire Emblem Heroes is free to play, but additional characters and other content are available at a cost. The game uses a currency known as “orbs,” which players can purchase with real money and then spend in-game.
This is the second game developed by Nintendo and mobile partner DeNA in its burgeoning line of mobile titles. Super Mario Run preceded Fire Emblem Heroes in December. A timed exclusive on iOS, the game will hit Android in March.

Update: The game is available on the U.S. App Store now as well.
