Fans of the Fire Emblem series will be pleased to hear that the newcomer has garnered nearly all of the most prominent heroes from various Fire Emblem games.

The game was recently released but immediately impressed the gaming community when adding new elements with individual characteristics.
The plot of the game will allow the player to become a Summoner, allowing you to summon a Hero as your main character. Besides, you can also summon various NPC from this series to create a dream team. Then, the player controls the warriors in the squad and equips them with various weapons.
It should be noted that similar weapons systems (sword carved, axes, mercury sword …) will still apply. Because it is a free game. Like many other mobile games, Fire Emblem Heroes will still be using the system of limiting the number of playing turns per day.

However, the value of Super Mario Run is not only on the platform but also many game systems. In which you can compete with players all over the world with a race mode or accumulate gold coins to build the mushroom kingdom. These modes serve as places to visit after hours of hard work across the region.

Outside the porch, a silver-haired man stood watching the sea. Then the courier arrived. After receiving the letter, the old man sat with a facial expression thinking and anxious, then he started his journey. The game also started right here.
Besides the unique gameplay, fancy graphics is also a highlight of the game. Old Man’s Journey is designed as a coloring book for children. With simple graphics, rustic but very personal style.
