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
- Shadow Dragon: Minerva, Navarre, Linde
- Awakening: Olivia, Owain, Tharja
There’s plenty of other new data available for DLC as well. Full details on each pack are detailed below:
Ahead of Fire Emblem Warriors‘s Western release on 20th October 2017, Nintendo of America has dropped a launch trailer including some neat tidbits about the upcoming DLC.
Each of the 3 DLC Packs (Fates, Shadow Dragon and Awakening) will contain the following:
- Three new playable characters
- Three new History scenarios
- New weapons and costumes
- New support conversations
That’s not all: a free Japanese voice pack will be available to download as soon as the game is released. So they delivered on their promise of dual audio after all!
On the final day of the Tokyo Game Show, Koei Tecmo revealed their plans for the Fire Emblem Warriors DLC.
Currently, three DLC packs are scheduled for release between late 2017 and early 2018 (in Japan).
No concrete details were shared, but if the packs are similar to the ones for Hyrule Warriors (and Legends), we can probably expect to see a few new characters, costumes and maps per pack.
To save money, there is a 3,000 Yen season pass for the 3 DLC packs, which is a saving of 1,200 Yen. Those who buy the season pass will also receive a bonus Bride Lucina costume.

Update: The release dates and pricing for the North American and European versions have been revealed. Please check the links for details.
Today, the final piece of DLC for Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia is available to download in Japan and the West. (As soon as the eShop updates in each respective region.)
As we’ve reported in the past, Cipher Companions features 2 maps that, together, allow you to recruit the four Cipher mascots to your party: Emma, Randal (formerly known as Lando), Yuzu and Shade.
This is a very interesting turn of events given that the Cipher card game–where these characters come from–is currently only released in Japan and even the English DLC descriptions acknowledge this.
In any case, you can find the new characters’ profiles and detailed breakdown below!
