Fire Emblem Heroes iOS and Android system requirements
Fire Emblem Heroes is supported on the following devices
- iOS 8.0 or higher on iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad
- Recommended 1 GB of RAM or more
Android 4.2 or higher is required
Device with 2 GB of RAM or more is highly recommended
Error – A communications error has occurred. Support Code: 803-0003
This error is caused by overloaded servers. It is advised not to keep reloading the game, as this will just feed into the issue. The issue is related to the number of people downloading the game at once, which is overloading the servers.
Your best course of action would be to simply keep retrying every 10 minutes or so, rather than continuously reload the game every few seconds. Once the servers calm down and stress is released, you should be able to get on.
Error – Cannot link Nintendo Account
A number of Fire Emblem Heroes players appear to be facing this issue.
At the moment, there’s no known cause, but we can assume that it’s probably caused by server strain.
However, some players are being redirected to “https://null/connect/1.0.0/authorize/” in their browser, which suggests an authentication issue.
Try clearly your smartphone’s browser cache, history and cookies, and try again. If that doesn’t work, try rebooting the game, and then attempt to connect your My Nintendo account using a different connection, be it over Wi-Fi or a mobile network.
Error – Support Code: 803-3001
Some players are facing this error code and simply can’t get beyond the Fire Emblem Heroes main screen.
There is no known wide fix for this, although some players report having deleted and then redownloaded the game fixed the problem.
BEWARE: If you’ve played the game and earned Orbs but haven’t connected your My Nintendo account, deleting the game will lose your Orbs. Your Orb count is connected to your My Nintendo account, so make sure it’s connected to your game before you delete the game.
Can’t purchase Orbs
This may be caused by an issue with your payment system, or the number of Orbs you have. There is a maximum of 999 Orbs per account.
Didn’t receive My Nintendo Points
Firstly, make sure your My Nintendo account is actually linked to Fire Emblem Heroes. Then, ensure you met all of the requirements of the mission or quest in order for the My Nintendo points to be rewarded. Sometimes there are time or damage requirements, which may go unnoticed on your initial play-through.
Didn’t receive Orbs after purchase
This can be fixed any number of ways. Firstly, try restarting your app. If this did not work, wait a few hours, as it may take time for the server to recognise your transactions. Do not uninstall the game while you are waiting for Orbs to appear. If they don’t appear, ensure your payment method was correct, and that the payment actually went through.
The game is simply not working
Try deleting the game and reinstalling it, but not before clearing your system cache. Ensure that if you have progressed at all in the game, that your My Nintendo account is liked to the game profile so that you don’t lose progress or Orbs.
