Warriors: Additional Fates DLC Details from Famitsu

Following from yesterday’s Famitsu preview, we have a few more details about the Fire Emblem Fates DLC pack for Fire Emblem Warriors that releases on 21st December 2017.


(A big thanks to Nintendo Everything for the pictures)

Firstly, Azura’s mysterious songstress costume is unlocked when you get her. In addition to wielding lances, she can use Sing to restore the Warrior and Awakening gauge of allies. The other four costumes are unlocked by playing the new history maps.

Speaking of, the three history maps are loosely based off the Hoshidan capital, the Ice Village and Izumo. One of the new rewards is the “Bond Talisman”, which can be equipped in place of a healing item and increases the rate of gaining support points.

In terms of the new characters, Oboro has the Counter skill, which opens up a stun gauge when guarding an enemy attack. Meanwhile Niles has the Lethality skill, which increases the power of critical hits proportional to the user’s Luck.

Warriors: Upcoming Free DLC/Update for Japan

Update: The free DLC is coming to Europe, North America, etc. on the same day.

The Japanese Fire Emblem Warriors website has updated with news about a version 1.2.0 update arriving on 16th November 2017, as well as a free English voice pack (just like we got a free Japanese voice pack).

Whereas 1.1.0 merely added the ability to buy DLC and a few quality of life improvements, the new update will include new battles, costumes and gameplay features.

To begin with, there will be new costumes for Rowan and Lianna, pictured above, dubbed “Gold Prince” and “Gold Princess” respectively.

Next, a new and rather intriguing weapon attribute has been introduced, which we’ll tentatively call “Crushing Blow”. If equipped, attacks will trigger “Armour Break”, which removes the foe’s armour, revealing their… well, underwear.

So just like Sophie’s skill or the Raider weapons in Fates. Except Armour Break lowers the Defence and Resistance stat, so it actually has gameplay merit. The catch is that if you’re hit by a foe’s Strong attack, your character will get inflicted by Armour Break.

If that’s not enough, a new History Map “Heroic Arena” will be available to play. According to the description, it will focus on Rowan and Lianna as they battle against other heroes in the arena. Perhaps you’ll get their new costumes by completing it?

Finally, there will be some extra gameplay enhancements including the ability to sell multiple weapons at once(!), new blessings in the Temple and various bug fixes, etc.

Warriors: DLC Sneak Peek Reveals Azura, Minerva, Olivia and More

We’ve been well aware that DLC packs were coming out for Fire Emblem Warriors. One things we weren’t entirely sure of though, was what would be included with the Season Pass.

Twitter users AzurePhoenix and AAAGamer have been healthily feeding information to the world regarding incoming DLC for Fire Emblem Warriors, and GameXplain put together a nice video highlighting the details. Some surprising tidbits for what’s to come were found in the Fire Emblem Warriors DLC page via their access to the Nintendo’s Australian eShop.

 

Data will come in packs, one for Fire Emblem Fates, one for Awakening and one for Shadow Dragon. Most notable, are the cast joining via DLC. I’m not talking about the ones we’ve known about for some time, via either documentation or gameplay footage of NPCs (Navarre, Niles, Oboro and Owain), but of the new faces, Azura, Minerva, Linde, Olivia and Tharja. Here’s the total of who’s coming in, for each DLC pack.

New Playable Characters

  • Fates: Azura, Niles, Oboro
