Fire Emblem Heroes’ bite-sized tactics battles are exciting, but the game suffers from a greedy gacha system and grindy mechanics. Luckily, the latest update hands out some free hero summons and adds a new challenge mode.

Staff writer Heather Alexandra and Kotaku editor in chief Stephen Totilo sat down with Masahiro Higuchi from Intelligent Systems and Yosuke Hayashi from Koei Tecmo to talk about the game and whether or not it will…
Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia has a ton of downloadable content, most of which makes the game a little too easy. The latest DLC pack, Rise of the Deliverance, offers a robust experience with varied combat scenarios and additional story that perfectly complement the main game.
