The second title is the mobile smartphone game Fire Emblem Heroes and will be released for Android and iOS devices. The game will feature strategic turn-based combat with characters from previous Fire Emblem games. It will be available on Android devices first.

The last game is Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia and will only be available for Nintendo 3DS. The game is based on the original Fire Emblem Gaiden title that was released for the SNES in 1992.

During the stream Nintendo also confirmed that it is working on a new unannounced Fire Emblem game for the Nintendo Switch that is expected to be released in 2018 though did not release further details.
