Fire Emblem: Heroes of WWII is a tactical role-playing strategy game. Like Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn, it features voice acting and 3D gameplay. It features anime-style cutscenes. The game is available on the Nintendo Wii. It's the first Fire Emblem game to be in the Anno Domini timeline in the 1940s during WWII.


Fire Emblem: Heroes of WWII is set on 2 fronts, the European Theater and the Pacific campaign where the Americans will fight the most. It features 5 protagonists: Pvt. Marilyn Holder (later sergeant) from the United States, the daughter of her sergeant who was killed in North Africa, Sgt. Edward Downing from England, Pvt. James Smithers from Canada, Major Ilyich Borchenko from Russia, a man who wants revenge for the deaths of his family at the hands of Germans and Cpl. Henryk Powalski from Poland. These protagonists have their own stories and the main character switches through some chapters completed. These 5 brave soldiers will face many enemies and many obstacles to bring down the Axis of Evil (Germany, Italy and Japan).


Each of the main characters will get different characters but won't link up.
