Following in the footsteps of Mario Kart Tour, Nintendo's hit mobile game Fire Emblem Heroes will be introducing a subscription-based service. This news was shared in the official Feh Channel video update for this month.
In exchange for a set monthly fee of $9.49 (or the regional equivalent), subscribers will be able to enjoy access to special multiple benefits. This includes the distribution of two resplendent heroes per month as well as four perks each month.
- Resplendent Heroes - Heroes dressed in resplendent attire (brand new visuals and voices, +2 boost to all stats). Two of these heroes will be distributed per month on the 10th and 25th of each month. To begin, Lyn will be available on 5th Feb and Cordelia will follow on 24th Feb.
- Special perks - Feh Pass Quests (twice every month) - earn valuable items, expanded summoner support - bond with up to three heroes, Re-Act - return to the start of your previous turn if your heroes have yet to act (can be used everywhere but coliseum and aether raids), and auto-start - play the same map automatically multiple times in a row.
Access will be granted to the Feh Pass after the release of version 4.2 update, which is due out on 5th February.
How do you feel about a subscription service being added to Fire Emblem Heroes? Will you be subscribing? Tell us below.
Lets see what the experts in the comment section have to say about this
What are we supposed to be experts on? What field of expertise is necessary to discuss smartphone game subscription services?
I’m as weary as anyone of the intricacies of console specifications, economic strategies, or the management of a multi-million dollar corporation being explained away by laymen. However, in this case there is simply an offer being made to potential consumers, and those consumers are welcome to state whether they find the offer appealing or not.
Well they finally did it, they made me see the SSBU expansion passes as good deals.
Yeah... I think I'm done. Iwata stayed away from mobile games for years because he thought they prioritized profit over integrity and quality. Now, half a decade after his passing, Nintendo has not only proven him right but betrayed his legacy to boot. I've defended this game for far too long. I'm gone.
Byleth? More like BUYLETH!
I like how the narrator sounds like a middle aged American man impersonating an elderly British aristocrat choking on a live owl.
He’s really channelling a very specific sort of energy.
The Feh Pass is actually a really clever name!
Because "feh" is the exact reaction I made after seeing this new subscription service!
If they implement this system in any of their console games, I will eat a pineapple without the skin peeled off. (For legal reasons that's a joke)
$9.49? That's about $19.49 more than I'm willing to pay for gotcha mobile game.
so this is the new hell...
That said a subscription fee of, say, $15 a year for unlimited access to all of Nintendo's mobile offerings would not be a very bad deal. To pay anything more for anything less than that would be mad though.
Well, they chose the one character that would convince me to buy this thing. Looks like I'll pick it up on the 25th and immediately cancel.
welp the game is now pay 2 win
please dont bring this to console pleaseeee
@megallade sorta is with pokemon home
Why does this cost more than Nintendo online? Makes little sense especially with how little is offered. Is this game really that popular?
Every time news comes up regarding Nintendo's mobile offerings, it's never good. They should've stayed away from this cesspool.
Jesus Christ, can this just stop
Nope. I stopped playing a while ago and now, I really see no reason to go back. Pay2Win models suck ass.
F*ck off, Nintendo. Iwata's rolling over in his grave.
I'm one of the people who still play this game (almost) daily. My drive to play has weakened, but I'm still having fun. But I have absolutely zero interest in this pass. And in fact, it makes me kinda want to play it a little less, since there's going to be a flood of players with all the perks I don't feel like going all in on.
(Also, S-Rank relationships are supposed to resemble a wedding ceremony, right? Did they just put bigamy/poliamory behind a paywall?)
So twice PC Game Pass For 1 mobile game 🙄
I'm so disappointed that this happened. This is literally the only mobile game I like..
@rjejr They ARE good deals, since you save money with them. Unless you're saying that the characters, stages and levels you get aren't worth the price.
This is all subjective, though.
Game was trash, why would anyone pay for this? Just save up 5/6 months worth of subscription and buy a real video game. Buy Gamepass and play 100's of games, buy Nintendo online and play many NES/SNES games, literally spending your money on anything else will be more valuable than subscribing to a mobile game
Nintendo.. idk about this
@TheAwesomeBowser I'm more concerned about implementing this in games that have already been paid for.
Just like Mario Kart it's p2w now.
Nintendo is a huge company and should be giving away more free stuff. I mean, there are games on Steam that I've bought and they make all future DLC content free. And these are companies that are much smaller than a AAA company like Nintendo. Well, just a thought, I guess. I know that not every company is being run the same way but I am like 50/50 on subscriptions on some games. :/
These passes that have been getting implemented into Nintendo’s mobile titles lately are pretty gross. I even recently used my free trial in Mario Kart Tour because of how badly I was lagging behind the competition and the difference is almost night and day between having the pass and not having the pass. Now if Nintendo were adding whole new extra modes behind the pass that are entirely separate from the main game, that would be a different story, but the fact of the matter is that they are not, they are taking existing content that was free (Animal Crossing, Fire Emblem) and locking it behind a pay wall.
It’s not like they are hurting for money either, Fire Emblem Heroes has been doing stupidly well compared to Nintendo’s other mobile games. So that makes this move make even less sense since it has the potential to kill a large number of people’s interest in the game since they can’t grind levels anymore without the pass.
Oh yeah, and not to mention how absurdly expensive this is for just one month of the service.
Well, I said it before and I'll say it again. Its video game karma biting us in the ass all these years later. Remember when people mocked Super Mario Run's price tag, and refused to pay for it. Remember when 10 bucks and you got everything in a game was overpriced?
Well, this is where the path leads us. A monthly pass in Fire Emblem Heroes that costs almost a much as owning everything in Super Mario Run.
Still, I'm honestly amazed. How do people have this much money to throw around on passes like this! It costs almost as much as Xbox Game Pass!
Something that gives you hundreds of games that you can play!
Its boggles my mind. Mobile Gaming is like a black hole where vaule no longer applies, and common sense when it comes to money goes out the window as people gladly pay up for expensive passes and other stuff and smile as they get more and more cash milked out of them.
@ancientlii blaming gamefreak for that hapls me sleep at night
for now im ok with nintendo
Aw come on, I thought I finally found an actual good mobile game
As much as I wish they'd try at single-paid mobile games again, the one saving grace to this is that Nintendo doesn't seem intent on low-prioritizing their conventional, "hardcore" games like they did during the late Wii/early Wii U days.
Like, in spite of all this, we still got a mainline FE game, a new AC game is less than two months away, BotW 2 is still coming, and who knows what this holiday's big game will be?
@Smashfan502 Ya, I know. I'm kinda mixed on subs. Companies do need to stay in business.
I am considering on retiring from the game altogether.
I've been playing this game since it came out and not spent a penny on it. I've got loads of 5 star characters and most of the ones I've really wanted. I've been playing it less and less, still play it daily but mostly just to get the daily rewards, or if there is a voting battle or a new chapter. But this has really put me off. Super powerful characters only available to those who pay just sounds horrible. Might delete this and keep Dragalia Lost as that's more fun to play for me at the moment (until a subscription inevitably comes to that).
@Caryslan I bought that game and its easily the best mobile game I've ever played and actually the only one I still do play
I mean... I agree with you two that companies need money, especially to keep up a game like this constantly updating, but... This is a game that has been making millions with its (unfair and pricey) Gatcha system.
I honestly doubt the success FEH had so far wasn't enough to cover the cost of the features in the pass or that such features have an high manteinance cost that must requires a pass to make them avaiable.
Sure, the pass also offer two extra heroes a month, but at this point it feels more like "We had to paywall something behind this sub to force the playerbase to give us more money" then "We had to do this else we could never keep up working on this game" kind of deal.
No Nintendo! Did you learn nothing from Mario kart tour?!
im guessing this is a good time to hop off nintendo mobile gaming now that they realize the mk tour strategy works
@megallade but the practice will become more common place, see overwatch and loot boxes
I’d be more disappointed if I hadn’t already quit because of how bunk the gacha is.
Kinda want this for Lyn. However I don’t play it much as is. I just do the free summons just in case.
I'd be significantly more interested if they introduced the game itself to Belarus after all these years. There's a reason I'm inclined to have this and Dragalia Lost on my Switch port wishlist because: a) in the absence of "Belarus" I primarily use a Russian Switch account anyway and b) when push comes to shove, Switch at least allows multiple region accounts without jumping through hoops like VPN apps and clear data/log out/log in routines. Even sideload apk hunts become less of an option with the advent of whimsical Google Play-locked localizations like Magia Record, although last time I checked, FEH still wasn't subject to that - but back then, I didn't have room for its 800+ Mb on the phone either.😆 Maybe I'll give its apk another shot one day.
But for all the unmistakable FWP flavour of all the above, it still gives you an eyeroll - especially when Nintendo's page in the local store remains represented by SMR and the very recent MKT... yet proudly sports the banner of Animal Crossing Pocket Camp, the game Belarusian users CAN'T legally access. I'm really not well-versed in modern marketing, am I.😅
@Deku-Scrub er, lagging behind... "the competition"? Those two ranking tables per tour and the currency prizes they potentially give? Sure, there are a couple milestone gems to squeeze out of tier advancement as well, but I still haven't seen anything to lose any sleep over. 🤔 As with all freemiums, the sane predetermined alternative to dumping money is casual play, casual grind and casual commitment. PvP normally plays a third fiddle (at best) in such games to boot. After years and years of the business model's existence, gotta marvel at how many people still deem all this to be rocket science.
No publisher can empty your wallet unless you deliberately unzip it - for a "tempting perk" that is usually bound to get discounted, conventionally obtainable or outright given away in a matter of months. But if neither the three Casuals nor playing without whaling bring you enjoyment, then the obvious choice is to stick to full price games where MTX are either absent or work exclusively with cosmetic stuff.
For the same price on Xbox One each month.
You get "Game Pass". with 100's of games including all exclusives on day 1 of release.
Nintendo sure nailed it with correct pricing for a simple phone game.
$113.88 a year (38% of the Switch price).
What a load of BS, Nintendo!
I'm laughing, but I'm not amused at all.
@BakaKnight The reason why I am mixed is because they do have people working on the game, so by doing a subscription service, that would help to offset the cost and/or make more money. The problem is trying to figure out the cost vs content and if it's worth paying for a subscription. I know my example would be when I used to play Star Trek Online and Path of Exile. They're both free to play but make money off of skins, inventory space or whatnot. I actually put in hundreds of dollars every so often between buying stuff for both games. There's also when I used to play Eve Online, I paid a subscription fee but also bought stuff too and their expansions or DLC are free. I think one thing I didn't like was being forced to pay a subscription to play a game. It reminds me that a bill comes every month. Heh. One more example would be paying a sub for Crunchyroll, Funimation or Netflix. I get a lot more content for my money vs the content I would get for this Fire Emblem subscription. I mean how do we balance all the costs between them?
Anyone else getting sick and tired of the Fire Emblem franchise? I can understand why some enjoy it but man, talk about an overabundance of games and overrepresentation...
Also- mobile phone games, micro-transactions and subscription services are some of the biggest scams on the planet. Why people continue allow themselves to be fleeced of their hard earned money on such an abstract concept, baffles me to no end. It’s like they want to be ripped off...
@Xylnox I understand why you are mixed, but my point is that (at least given the huge success and revenue the app made) that FEH looks far from a case of a game needing the money for the sake of the staff.
Not to mention honestly that sadly this is not something we should worry about. Yes, they do have people working behind these games, but some game companies have fired people or disbanded studios even when players did and paid everything to support their games, making meaningless to pay for the sake of the developers.
The only question is if it's worth the price of the service itself and as I said in my previous comment I don't think anything about it is justified. STILL this is just my opinion and you should decide by yourself if it's worthy or not, on that I can't help you ^^;
Lol, just delete it for $0 per month!
@BakaKnight If I really have to say whether I think Fire Emblem's subscription fee is worth the cost then I would so no. In this example, I do not think so. Mainly, because there are games that drop an expansion or big DLC about lets say every 6-9 months and cost around $20-$30. The Feh Pass would cost you $60-$90 (I just calculated at $10/mon). That is 3x the cost that other companies would charge you (just giving a generic example). That is ridiculous.
No overly bothered, the PvP element of this game is poor.
The additional game mechanics are for n00bs.
Free characters should be expected for that price!!
These monthly mobile subscriptions cost more than Super Mario Run does.
@kenyowa well said
One less thing for me to do in the train. I immediately deleted the game from my phone.
This can’t be defended. Nintendo is going down a dark path and that path has been tred by a lot of big companies who get spewed on by a lot of gamers. Those companies actually are trying to find redemption currently... (ea with Star Wars, bethesda with doom, ...)
I also don’t get it. Feh was making them a lot of money already. Do they really have to milk the whales as much as they can?...
Repent, Nintendo, while you can...
I kinda like it, I'll see if it's worth it and let yall know. I need my Fire Emblem mobile, I can't live without.
Ha, good old mobile games.
@gamering : B-b-b-but US$10/AU$15 is too expensive they said.
It seems the idiot masses want to get ripped off.
“Mobile games are just cash grabs.”
Mario run is just like “I tried to change the system.... I did.”
Eesh you could buy two Game Pass PCs for that.
FEH became meh. The pass content is not even that good for the money. Two of them are more what I what consider to be QoL improvements.
If you were already spending ten bucks a month on this game, subscribe.
The problem I see here is that Nintendo can easily go the way of Konami: they invest more and more on easy money-grabbing gacha mobile games and suddenly the investors see "hey guys, this is where the money is at, let's stop making console games!".
It's sad to see Nintendo going this way.
> The Switch has generated $8-10 billion USD in annual revenue since 2017.
> Nintendo's mobile games have made $1 billion USD in total since 2016.
"Let's stop making console games" isn't ever happening. A $10 monthly subscription for a 3 year-old gacha mobile game doesnt change anything.
@westman98 If you don't see the potential of this happening, then you're a bit delusional. They have Mario Kart, Animal Crossing and Fire Emblem on mobile now. Zelda will be next (it's already been confirmed).
Look at what's happening with the Pokemon Company: putting more money on mobile games than the actual canon console games.
Surely Nintendo stopping console games altogether is farfetched, but investors making them put more money on mobile than console is not out there at all (it's pretty much happening everywhere else).
Let's remember the $8 billion profit on Switch was achieved with more money and time put into the games/consoles. Mobile games require probably a tenth of the workforce, time and money to develop.
I really hate nintendo on mobile they made all the bad decision, didn't even tried mario kart tour. I hope they'll never try the same on console, switch online is 20€ a years, apple arcade is 5€ a month for a lot of games. Gamepass is 12.99€ a month. Mobile gaming is really horrible but the worse part is that people subscribe...
Depending on how this evolves over time i would say the extra quests are really good and the extra two bonds are very close to p2w.
If the free heroes stay the same quality they are worthless
The other two qol changes are nice to have. Kind of a shame that those are locked behind a paywall tho.
But not worth the asking price imho.
I mean, yeah, the fortunate thing is that this is ''only'' a mobile game.
I've been wary of Ninty's DLC tactics lately, but I didn't expect them to go this low with predatory tactics. Nintendo, the family friendly company, going after the people with no self control. Not something to be proud of TBH.
I really don't understand mobile gaming, and I'm baffled why people are even willing to spend so much money on it. When it hindsight, it could've gotten you a proper gaming system and a bunch of games. I'm getting too old I think
"but investors making them put more money on mobile than console is not out there at all (it's pretty much happening everywhere else)."
Investors asking Nintendo to "put more money on mobile than console" isn't happening now that the Switch is a hit, but I can't blame any investor for demanding more from mobile. All of their mobile efforts have failed outside of FEH, so it's no surprise that it's getting a subscription (albeit a ludicrously overpriced one).
Does that mean Nintendo will start mass-cancelling Switch projects, firing prominent developers, and treating their employees inhumanely (like what happened at Konami in 2015 with the Kojima fallout) just to satiate some non-existent boogeyman investor? No, I don't think so.
"Look at what's happening with the Pokemon Company: putting more money on mobile games than the actual canon console games."
There is no actual evidence of this other than personal conjecture i.e. "I don't like Sword/Shield; therefore, it must have been dirt cheap to make."
Also, Zelda mobile has never been confirmed. It was rumored many years back, but Nintendo has never acknowledged those rumors at all. At this point, I don't think it exists, or if it did, it was canceled.
More people crying on something they probably don't even have installed on there phone.
Now, before anyone keeps on demonizing Nintendo, remember that they did try a "pay once, everything unlocked" model with Super Mario Run. Didn't work well.
Mobile audiences are different regarding what and how they're willing to pay for their games.
As long as they keep this model to Mobile, away from consoles, there can be some peace.
Because of course. :')
@liljmoore true, deleted it the second I saw this news on Nintendo’s fees.
@ancientlii well wait and see
So... does this mean it's no longer free-to-play? If so, it was fun while it lasted. 🙂
@Handsomistic15 free to try. Pay to win.
It took a subscription fee to make it happen, but I'm glad people are coming around and realizing that FEH is a cash grab. I've always hated it for that reason and this only gives me more reason to hate it. People who know jack about FE play this and get twisted ideas about certain characters because the game just waifus every female up. Seriously Lyn in a wedding dress? Yeah that doesn't go against the character at all. Having Caeda act like a sniveling waif, sure why not? This game was always trash and now it's just trashier. I hope people delete this game off their phone. I'm tired of one of my favorite franchises being turned into a cash grab mobile game with waifus. If it weren't for 3 Houses, I'd have abandoned all hope for the franchise.
@Creature I agree. I barely play Super Mario Run and Dr. Mario World, when I'm at home with a stable Internet connection I may as well play actual Switch and PS4 games. I'd have tried FEH if it could be played offline on the go.
They’re so greedy it’s nasty
Honestly shocked by the price. Think about all the competing services you can get for $10 a month - PSN, Xbox Live (free games monthly), Netflix, Disney+, NSO, etc etc. Not sure how to justify $10 a month for this.
Inevitable given what happened with Pocket Camp in November. Mario Kart Tour Gold Pass was successful and then subscriptions are just being added to all their previous and upcoming free to play mobile games.
When this poison infects Switch, Nintendo's going full EA.
Look at what you've done Mario Kart Tour!
FEH Is already Nintendo's most profitable mobile game, there was no need for this.
Screw you Nintendo!
I love what you did with the Switch but this is arrogant
@Grumblevolcano If that happens I might even consider not bothering with new games at all anymore. I really hope this stuff stays away from proper Switch.
Nasty move. This subscription model only helped to make MK Tour worse by locking down a lot of goodies behind a paywall.
I may have said it before, and I will say it again: Spending money on these games is nonsense. If you want to GAMBLE like this (because it really is like that), GO TO A REAL CASINO.
They should be ashamed of themselves!
Nintendo isn't even close to EA levels of corporate scumminess, but this is a good step in the right direction...
@Kalmaro "This is all subjective, though."
Opinions are subjective, but the math is real.
SSBU 60 characters, $60, $1 per character (also includes an entire 30 hour Spirit World game, challenges and numerous stages)
SSBU expansion pass 5 characters, $25, $5 per character
Gacha mobile games were already pushing boundaries, but these subscriptions between Mario Kart Tour, Animal Crossing Pocket Camp, and now this is revolting.
Mobile gaming is Cancer.
@Andrew_R_2000 Never thought I'd said this, but at least in a Casino you have a chance of getting your money back.
It may be very slim, and in some places the house may be rigged against you, but it's still there.
The point of Paid Subscription Services is to keep the company operating in the future vs one time buys as with a subscription one can if can get back earlier customers, etc, and stay paying a set price a month, etc.....
Again Subscriptions are a source of monetary that keeps the company in business awhile longer...
@tkdboy1889 I’m of two minds: yeah it’s kinda crappy, but if it’s financing great real games I guess it’s ok? There’s a market out there for this stuff, so if Nintendo’s tapped into the casual market successfully, I guess it’s fine that those casuals are funneling money to Nintendo so us gamers can still play real Nintendo games.
@rjejr You're forgetting the music that comes with the character, as well as the stage. The music alone makes the price harder to nail down. Terry Bogard came with so many songs that it's hard to believe it was even approved.
@kenyowa But you can still play it, the subscription isn't taking away the. original experience. Companies want to make money. I am not mad at Nintendo for doing this, because if I don't buy it (which I won't) I can still play the game like before
I've told my kids that the Switch will likely be my last console. I'll just play retro games from here on out. Nintendo is doing this in their console games as well (see the neverending "DLC" of SSBU). I want to buy a game, play it and have it come to an end, not have it shoved down my throat "as a service".
Also, from a personal finance standpoint, subscription services are devious because they hide how much of your income is being spent per month instead of just saving up for a thing and buying it one time. It only really benefits the company in the end. I don't like these developments at all.
All aboard the Anti-Consumer Express! Choo choo! Bring money!
@rosemo The way I see it, like with SSBU, you have two options.
Either you want a game to be smaller and broken up into smaller games that would have to be purchased separately.
One game that's supported over a longer period of time.
I have a hard tone condemning SSBU because they are giving us a substantial amount of content for the money and the DLC is not required for the base game to be enjoyable.
Unlike FEH where you need that money to get an edge.
@Maschinenmensch Mobile gaming is the future, and also you clearly pay for internet hipster!
@pumpknsniper The subscription creates an unfair environment where F2P players are put at a blatant disadvantage. Nintendo does not need this to make money off of Fire Emblem Heroes - as discussed in a NintendoLife article within the last week, FEH made Nintendo over half a billion dollars last year through orb purchases alone. This only deepens the divide between those who are able to spend the extra money to be at the top of the leaderboards, and casual players who can no longer reasonably keep up in PvP modes.
@Maschinenmensch Why do you feel the need to remind everyone else that you hate Fire Emblem on every piece of Fire Emblem-related news? Don't you have anything better to do with your time?
@Kalmaro I'm pretty sure the $60 game came w/ like 100 songs. I didn't do ALL the math but it's still not close to equal.
@rjejr I haven't don't the math either, but for about halve of the price we got 5 high quality stages, a ton of music and 5 characters.
However, it's hard to really put a number on how much all of that is worth. It kinda just comes down to what we think.
smh man, who let's this cancer fester this far.
They certainly love targeting that maximum price point, but with the mobile market they sure go for these mythical numbers, honestly who wants to pay ten bucks a month, for what is essentially nothing.
@Kalmaro The "What's it worth? question is always a tough one b/c most of the time half the people are arguing what it's worth "to them" and the other half are arguing what it cost to produce. Hence all the disagreements.
Then of course someone who has more money than that they know what to do with is going to think something is cheap compared to someone struggling just to get by. I'm guessing professional MLB, NFL and NBA athletes never really worry about the price of video games or DLC.
@rjejr I guess at the end of the day, there's just no way to know since it's all subjective.
@huyi The people who give them money.
@ancientlii Except it's not. Pokémon Home is a storage service. And yes, storage costs money.
@rosemo I'm with you on that. Very few games provide DLC that includes something substantial. It's my sole reason behind waiting for complete editions of games, so I can avoid the whole DLC cash grab that most devs use nowadays. Saves money and teaches the kids a lesson in patience.
Well, I was looking for a motive to stop playing FE Heroes and other mobiles as it was becoming too time consuming.
I guess this will do it for me
Everyone wants to do a subscription service....
Fine game BUT FOR FREE !!!
@GamingDude800 good grief you’re a vindictive sort. Get a life.
@kenyowa why are you whining about an opinion? Seems to me you have no life, focusing on others posts and observations. Pathetic.
@Caryslan Super Mario Run was garbage. It wasn't even worth $10.
If this was purely a PvE game, I wouldn't really have an opinion on this. Unfortunately, it does have some PvP elements, and I'm not a fan of P2W.
I can play proper MMOs on PC for that. lol.
As a long time die hard fan of Fire Emblem, I do not like Fire Emblem Heroes. I initially enjoyed it some, even enough to spend some money on it. But after the initial appeal of Lyn, Lucina and Ike fighting together on the same field wore off, I realized it lacked the soul of Fire Emblem.
There is no real story or interaction among the characters. That driving force that makes me care about leveling my units and have different characters work together to build their support relationships.
FEH simply lacks the heart and soul of the series.
Now they want a subscription? Lol, if there was something they could add to ensure I wont give this game another chance, this is it. Time to finally uninstall it.
@pumpknsniper Its not like it was before because you are playing against other people in multiple modes, and since some of these people have a paid advantage, the game is definitively not the same as it was. You could argue that this was already the case since people could pay for more chances to get the same heroes, merge them, and therefore become stronger, but what this does is increase that divide to a level where people who pay now have a huge advantage over those who are playing for free. It changes the game significantly, and I know for sure that I will not enjoy it as much as I have for several years now.
I paid for Mario Run. I won't claim to have seen the atrocity that is the Mario Kart and Feh subscriptions coming, but I always feared that the consequences of players balking at the "pay up front" model would become about this dire.
Iwata, however, foresaw this completely.
And now it's too late to go back.
@Friendly Cool. Long as it isn't changing to P2W exclusively; it'll be the same as DC Universe Online for me then.
this is it, were three good years, but now... uninstall!
If this was subscription replaces jewels, that would be one thing.
The game already encourages impulse buys with Gacha mechanics. It's why I've played a few levels but never further because the game's difficulty eventually is blocked by your ability to invest tons of money into it.
I'm sure you could use this subscription and just use the Resplendent heroes you get to win. But the point of the game is to enjoy playing with your favourite FE heroes, and NO ONE buying this subscription pass is going to stop buying Jewels.
The game essentially has long since passed console titles in fundamental cost. Even if you consider each BOOK its own game, they're still as expensive to win as it would be to buy Three Houses.
The mobile experiences are supposed to be a cheap shallow dip to lure people to buy a Switch and play the full console experiences. Instead, this is mobile gambling.
Not enough to justify 9.49 per month. Fairly ridiculous.
I welcome this monthly pass, especially the £10 monthly fee. This will serves as a good jump off point for me.
A few months ago, I bought my first Fire Emblem game; Shadows of Valentia. I immediately fell in love. When I finish it, I will probably look towards one of the other 3DS titles. I'm definitely not buying into a mobile game that always begs for more money.
@Maschinenmensch The future of portable gaming is mobile and the and there is no longer a market for dedicated handhelds anymore except for the Nintendo Switch but then again I personally have seen more and more people game on their phones than the Nintendo Switch since phones have completely better specs than the Nintendo Switch!
