Fire Emblem Warriors released
Upcoming DLC plans also announced for tactical action game
Nintendo has announced the release of Fire Emblem Warriors, available today on the Nintendo Switch.
The new game offers a twist on the Fire Emblem series by uniting characters from Fire Emblem history to participate in over-the-top battles focused on real-time, tactical action rather than turn-based strategy. The campaign stars more than 20 playable warriors, including two new characters, Lianna and Rowan, battling alongside beloved heroes like Marth, Lyn, Xander, Corrin and Chrom.
At midnight ET on Oct. 20, both the free DLC Japanese voice pack and a free software update will go live. The DLC voice pack adds the ability to experience the game with Japanese voice audio and English subtitles. The free software update adds battle results to the game’s History mode and a new feature for sorting in-game weapons.
Starting in December, a series of three paid DLC packs will also release for the game. The first DLC pack launches in December, the second in February and the third in March, with each pack adding three new playable characters, three new History scenarios, new costumes, new weapons and new support conversations inspired by Fire Emblem Fates, Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and Fire Emblem Awakening, respectively. Each DLC pack will cost $8.99, but a Season Pass can be purchased starting on Oct. 20 for $19.99.
Fire Emblem Warriors is available for Nintendo Switch, as well as a version on New Nintendo 3DS, New Nintendo 3DS XL and New Nintendo 2DS XL systems.
