Nintendo’s next mobile game following the launch of Super Mario Run will be Fire Emblem Heroes, launching Feb. 2 on Google Play for Android devices.

Flipping the script a bit, an iOS release of the tactical RPG for iPhone and iPad will follow later. Super Mario Run still hasn’t been released on Android platforms, but Nintendo has said it’s coming in March.

Also in Wednesday’s announcements, Nintendo said a new mainline game in the Fire Emblem franchise is coming to Nintendo Switch in 2018. That will be preceded by Fire Emblem Warriors, a crossover with KOEI TECMO’s action combat meta-series, for Switch and New 3DS in fall 2017.

May 19 of this year will see Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia arriving for the 3DS, along with an accompanying Alm and Celica amiibo figure set.
