Nintendo’s previously released mobile offerings include the social app Miitomo, and while Pokemon Go was developed in collaboration with Niantic, it’s technically The Pokemon Company’s game, as Nintendo only holds a 32% stake in the Pokemon franchise.

Fire Emblem Heroes is available worldwide except in certain regions of Asia.
