Celebrate The Launch Of Fire Emblem Heroes With Free Super Mario Run Coins

As Nintendo ramps up its mobile efforts, it's learning how to get players to hop among its multiple games on phones.

Case in point: the launch of Fire Emblem Heroes is cause for celebration in Super Mario Run, where players who log in now will receive 2,222 coins (coinciding with the game's launch date of February 2, or 2/2). You don't have to download Fire Emblem Heroes or have paid the $ 10 it takes to unlock all of Super Mario Run's courses, either – all of you have to do is log in.

  • Not a Hero, PS4
  • Starwhal, PS3 (Cross Buy on PS4)
  • Anna: Extended Edition, PS3

Play Rainbow Six Siege For Free This Weekend

With the second year of DLC content for Rainbow Six Siege on the horizon, Ubisoft is giving players across all platforms the chance to try the tactical shooter for free this weekend.

Our Take
Ubisoft is pushing hard this weekend with both the free trial of Rainbow Six Siege and the Ghost Recon Wildlands closed beta. It's nice to see both Tom Clancy games operational after such long layoffs for both.
