Warriors: Japanese Official Website Opens

Hot off the heels of Fire Emblem Warriors‘s re-appearance in Famitsu this week (which our resident expert Jedi covered in detail), Koei Tecmo has unleashed the game’s official Japanese website.

At this current time, there’s not much new information, but you can sample some of the voice work from the game if you click on the characters. Plus the 3DS map sprites of Shion and Lian are a very neat touch.

In addition, an official Twitter account, @FireEmblemMusou, has been created so you can get your Warriors news straight from the horse’s mouth. Or in this case, the Warriors version of Anna, Fire Emblem‘s cheeky red-haired mascot.

Shion

Voice Actor: Yūma Uchida

A prince from the Kingdom of Aitriss. Full of energy and has a positive attitude; he’s the type who acts recklessly before thinking. Lian is his older twin sister.

Lian

Voice Actor: Māya Uchida

A princess from the Kingdom of Aitriss. As a royal family member, she does her best to hide her weaknesses from others and acts as the perfect role model. Shion is her younger twin brother.

Chrom

Voice Actor: Tomakazu Sugita

The first prince of the Halidom of Ylisse. Possesses a keen swordsmanship and despite being royalty, serves as the Shepherds’s captain, protecting his country’s peace. Contrary to his heritage, he’s frank and straightforward.

Marth

Voice Actor: Hikaru Midorikawa

The first prince of the Kingdom of Altea. He doesn’t flaunt his heritage and acts without discrimination towards others; values his friends. During times of conflict, his true strength shines.

Story

On that day, the Kingdom of Aitriss became shrouded in darkness.
Without warning, the “Outrealm Gate” suddenly appeared in the royal castle.
Powerful monsters poured out of the gate, trampling over the royal soldiers.

–The castle quickly fell.
And the kingdom was slowly, but surely corrupted by darkness.

But, hope remained.
Two figures escaped from the flaming castle, “Shion” and “Lian”, children of the deceased king.
With them, the strings of fate that tie them to the heroes of legend…

Wielding the “Shield of Flame” passed on from their mother,
The twins’ stand against the great darkness begins here.

    Now the real question will Anna be playable?

    • Aveyn Knight

      I think it should be WHICH Anna : P
      I mean, she’s already playable in Awakening, Fates and Heroes, so it’s no longer a surprise to have her.

      • Hey, why not all of them separately, since they’re all different Annas? XD
        But in all seriousness, it would be nice to have multiple versions of Anna finally interact for a change, considering you never actually see more than one at a time – the closest you get is taking Anna to the Traveling Merchant’s shop in Awakening, and then she just seems kind of disappointed in her sister’s wares. Seeing multiple Annas together in battle would actually be really cool, plus it would finally be a character that multiple people could play at the same time, assuming FE Warriors will support that(I at least hope they do, unlikely though it might be).

      • Vaximillian

        Every Anna, all of them!

        Does the twitter icon Anna wear a beret?

  • MetalGear Lamia

    Damn Anna looks amazing and they said FE16 Switch is gonna be beautiful…..can’t wait!

  • Laggalot

    Monsters, eh? Then we can conclude we won’t just be fighting human enemies. Fire Emblem has a decent pool of existing monsters to pull from, so there ought to be some variety, or so I’d hope. Having said that, I can’t help but expect it’ll mostly be the Faceless and Stoneborn from Fates and the Revenants and Entombed from Awakening, and not so much the Bonewalkers, Mogalls, Necrodragons, etc that we’ve seen with Sacred Stones and Gaiden and its recent remake. It’d be rather boring if they did that, but we already know there’s a strong bias towards Awakening and Fates here (and Shadow Dragon too, but there were no monsters in that game, unless you count manaketes).

    Oh, and these twins… I noticed there was mention of their mother, the queen? I am very curious if she’s going to follow a certain trend…

    • Familyplayer

      You mean of dying? I sure hope not… I would not be surprised in the least however.

    • MetalGear Lamia

      I really wish they stop that trend….

  • Doctor Robert

    I love the new art for Chrom and Marth… you can (finally) see the family resemblance.

    Anyone else think Shion and Lian look like Owain and Noire’s kids? Oh well, most of my other inter-game connection theories have fallen through (Garon being a crazy old Walhart, Alm being Walhart’s great-grandpappy, Priam and Chrom being distant cousins (I’m holding on to that one), Zelgius being the Black Knight, etc.), so I don’t expect this one to last…

    • MetalGear Lamia

      I see Ophelia way more than Noire

  • mrkisukes

    But is Anna a playable character?

  • Noktis Zariah

    Monsters……you have the chance for an interesting conflict bewteen multiple factions who come to blows because they want to control the realm for their own reasons, giving us the chance for some actual gray morality in FE for once and instead we get monsters from another dimension.

    The series really is being dumbed down, now I feel bad for the “Elitists” (since that’s the name everyone gives them).

    • PikaChan

      “The series really is being dumbed down”
      Well ….. it is a crossover. What story would you make with 5+ different timelines meeting in one and it makes a compelling and sensible story?

      • MelloMori

        Or heck, let’s just leave it at it being a Mushu game, which tend to be pretty much dumbed down versions of the stories/history that their based on. Really we should assume the plot’s just going to be something super basic and maybe even a little campy.

  • Noktis Zariah

    Apologies for my last comment, it was dumb.

    Anyway check out Anna 😀
