Fire Emblem Fates: Class Trailers

While we’re all partying away at E3, Nintendo of Japan sneakily unleashed two new Japanese trailers for Fire Emblem Fates.


Both of these trailers showcase the classes you’ll encounter, in Hoshido and Nohr.

To save space, I’ve hidden the new classes after the cut (and also because of spoilers, as almost every class is revealed).

As always, be sure to check our forums for more details and discussions!

Note: Sorry, I lied. I’m in the middle of writing up the Treehouse analysis, but it’s 3 AM and my eyes literally cannot stay open. I’ll see you all again tomorrow!

Obviously, class names are subject to change (or can be interpreted differently by different translators).

Especially the Hoshidan classes–some of which I’ve left untranslated, because I simply couldn’t find an appropriate translation.

Shuras carry a gourd on their back.
