Today, Nintendo’s presence at E3 kicked off with their E3 Spotlight, which showcased a variety of upcoming Nintendo Switch titles, including Fire Emblem Warriors as expected.
The new trailer briefly touches on the game’s story and characters. Some of this information was previously covered by Famitsu, such as the royal twins and the inclusion of Marth.
Despite the obvious tease in the debut trailer, this our the first formal confirmation that Corrin (female at least), Ryoma and Xander from Fire Emblem Fates will be appearing in the game, presumably as playable characters.
That’s about it for now, but if we’re lucky, we may yet see more of Warriors at Nintendo Treehouse Live, which runs from 13th to 15th June 2017.
Although female Corrin may not be receiving an Amiibo (as far as we know anyway), that doesn’t mean that fans will be unable to own a plastic version of her.
First teased at the Summer Wonder Festival 2016, figma and nendoroid versions of female Corrin are now available to pre-order from good import/hobby sites (such as AmiAmi).
Both of the figures are produced by Good Smile Company, who are renown for creating high-quality products. Which is also evident from the price tag: 6,800 Yen for the figma and 5,200 Yen for the nendoroid.
The figma is to scale and measures 145 mm, while the nendoroid is super-deformed and measures 100 mm. As you can see from the pictures, both can be posed and include a few accessories like a dragonstone.
Speaking of which, if you order the figma directly from GSC, you can get an exclusive Omega Yato accessory.
That’s right. According to a Twitter post by Nintendo Of America, Corrin and Bayonetta will be available internationally for DLC on February 3rd!
This marks the 6th character from the Fire Emblem franchise to cross into the Smash Bros. universe, tying it with the world-famous Pokémon series’ characters. Mark your calendars, folks; February is a huge month for Fire Emblem!
February 3: Corrin debutes in Super Smash Bros for Wii U & Super Smash Bros for 3DS. Available Feb 4 in JP.
February 16: Project X Zone 2 feat. Chrom & Lucina. Available Feb 12 in EU regions and Feb 19 in Australia.
February 19: Fire Emblem Fates Birthright & Fire Emblem Fates Conquest. Still no other international release dates
That’s right! Yesterday, during what would be the final Super Smash Bros. Direct, Masahiro Sakurai announced quite a few additions to the Super Smash Bros. for Wii U & 3DS, including new stages, music, costumes and characters. What no doubt caught many viewers off guard was the immediate Fire Emblem Fates inclusion, thrusting the viewer into the infamous decision scene in which Corrin must choose his or her side. What surprised viewers even more was that the decision scene, in which Corrin was faced with a choice that nobody expected.
