Following last week’s Awakening characters trailer, the Fire Emblem Warriors Twitter has dropped two more trailers showcasing all of the currently-revealed warriors from Fates.
Trailer number 2 features the black-clad royals from Nohr.
Meanwhile, the 3rd trailer highlights the Hoshidan royals–and features our first look at Sakura in motion.
In other news, there have been rumours about a new image of the European limited edition boxart revealing the full roster (the main one anyway), including a couple of yet-to-be-announced characters.
Although we generally don’t report our rumours, this one is fairly substantial and has been slowly gaining traction, so we might as well grab our magnifying lens to take a look…
Today, the Fire Emblem Warriors Twitter posted another action-packed trailer, this one featuring all the currently-revealed warriors from Awakening.
The trailer is advertised as “number 1”, so presumably there will be similar trailers for the Fates
and Shadow Dragon
Moving on, Warriors will be coming to TGS (Tokyo Games Show) in Japan between 21st to 24th September. Of note, it will be showcased on Koei Tecmo’s main stage and livestreamed on Niconico on all four days.
According to the stage schedule, there will be announcements of new hero(es) on the 21st and 23rd. Various voice actors, such as for Marth, Xander and Lianna will be present. The other days will feature gameplay and other new information.
Following the release of this week’s Famitsu, the game’s official Japanese website has updated with profiles for male Corrin, Elise and Sakura, as well as screenshots of the badge/emblem and forging systems. Read more
In an unexpected development, S_Kaga revealed on his blog that his first title in the Vestaria Saga series will be officially translated into English.
Released during September of 2016, Vestaria Saga I received a lot of praise from Japanese and overseas fans for its intense strategical gameplay and well-developed story.
At the time, many fans were clamouring for an English translation. According to S_Kaga, an overseas publisher who’s been involved with localisation has since stepped in to translate the game.
The key things to know are that a release is not yet guaranteed, but provided everything goes to plan, a formal announcement will be made during 2018. Additionally, the English version will be a paid release, despite the original being free.
Note: All images belong to S_Kaga and Vestaria Project.
Nintendo Hong Kong announced that local pre-orders of Fire Emblem Warriors will come with a limited edition Fire Emblem Warriors-themed carry case.
The case, presumably designed for the Nintendo Switch, features the 6 characters from the box art on the front and the Chinese Fire Emblem Warriors logo on the back. Note that the final design may vary.
A full list of participating retailers offering this pre-order bonus can be found on this page. As usual, supplies are limited and given out on a first come, first serve basis. (If in doubt, be sure to ask the retailer.)
In any case, Warriors will release in Hong Kong on the same day as in Japan: 28th September 2017. As we reported earlier in the year, the game will be the second Fire Emblem title (after Echoes) to receive an official Chinese translation.
