Mario Kart Tour is the first Nintendo mobile game to feature a subscription service that grants additional bonuses to subscribers. The service has been criticized for its price, but it seems like this hasn’t prevented it from being somewhat popular, so much that it is being introduced in another mobile game by the Japanese company.
Starting from February 5th, players will be able to subscribe to the Fire Emblem Heroes Feh Pass for $9.49 a month. The pass grants access to two Resplended Heroes per month as well as a variety of special perks.
- 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.
While Mario Kart Tour launched with a subscription service, making it an integral part of the game, Fire Emblem Heroes did not, so it will be very interesting to see how players will react to it and how it will influence the game and its content moving forward.
