Given that the TBS genre is so well suited for touchscreens/smartphones* - with us already rocking the FFT, XCOM, Banner Saga, Frozen Synapse, Templar Battleforce, Ravenmark and Demon's Rise, to name just a handful among many - it's a shame they felt the need to reimagine the series in the first place. Traditional Fire Emblem titles for iOS would have been a boon.

* All genres are, really, if re-formatted and presented smartly enough. But turn-based strategy more than most.

But there does seem to be traditional TBS gameplay in there still! How sophisticated are the mechanics?

Downloaded from NZ AppStore.

Can reach the start menu, but then it tries to download data and says "A communications error has occurred."

Can't progress.

Update: Tried again 10 minutes later and it downloaded, watching the intro movie. Entered several nicknames and they're rejected despite meeting listed requirements. Had to choose the default name.

Update 2: Loading delays each time it connects to the servers. And suddenly it wants to download data a second time. A patch already, or phased data downloads?!?

Update 3: More comms errors. Buttons unresponsive. Frequent loading delays. Turning this off and will try again tomorrow.

I think the servers are getting hammered because of how popular FE is. There's also going to be massive amounts of people rerolling.

I played the game now for about an hour - it is really really good! Just got my first 5-star-character (Camilla). You can upgrade your castle to get more XP which is pretty nice. I didn't play the original games but it feels a lot like Final Fantasy Tactics with more pace.
