This article contains information about an as-of-yet unreleased game. Because of this, the information may be speculative, and may change drastically as new information becomes revealed. Please refrain from adding rumors or other unconfirmed information.
Fire Emblem Warriors (Japanese: ファイアーエムブレム 無双 Fire Emblem Unrivaled) is a Fire Emblem series crossover with the Dynasty Warriors Series. It is Nintendo's second crossover title with Dynasty Warriors, with the first being Hyrule Warriors. It will be released on both the Nintendo Switch and the New Nintendo 3DS systems in 2017.
This crossover features a cast of Fire Emblem characters in the gameplay style of Dynasty Warriors.
Currently nothing substantial has been revealed about the game's plot.
This game is a Dynasty Warriors spin-off similar to Hyrule Warriors. Warriors games feature hack and slash gameplay of a single player against many enemy units at once in real time. Generally, routing the enemy is not the goal, and win conditions are often things like capturing a number of enemy fortresses or defeating one or more enemy commanders, among other objectives.
Only Chrom has been revealed as playable so far.
The game was first announced at Nintendo's Switch live stream on January 12th/13th, 2017. Accompanying the announcement was a very short teaser trailer. The teaser shown teased Chrom from Fire Emblem Awakening, as well as weapons from Fire Emblem Fates including Yato, Siegfried, Raijinto, and both Chrom- and Marth-era Falchion. The teaser also features a redesigned Shield of Seals.
During the Treehouse stream the day after an, unprecedented, special Fire Emblem Direct was announced to occur on the 18th of January 2017 at 2PM PT/5PM ET. Nintendo of America's twitter also mentioned the Direct after its reveal on the stream. The day before the Direct both Nintendo of Japan and Nintendo of Europe officially announced the Fire Emblem Direct as well, confirming the direct as a simultaneous international Direct. The Treehouse stream confirmed that Fire Emblem Warriors would be present in the direct. Nintendo of Japan also confirmed that the direct would feature information on the Fire Emblem Heroes.
Fire Emblem Warriors was shown along with the Fire Emblem Heroes and the Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia remake in the direct. Very little was shown, with the footage shown only being a short extension of the teaser shown at the Switch livestream. Some gameplay of Chrom fighting enemies was shown.
