Warriors: Characters from Fates debut in E3 Trailer

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.

    I really hope that they add Female Robin in some form in the game. I’m fine if, for example, Robin’s male in the story but can be switched or costumed to a female during gameplay. If Robin remains strictly male, I’m going to be mad.

    Course they also failed to add Groose in Hyrule Warriors, so…

    • Espiritu

      At this point you people will be mad at anything they do… They showed Female Corrin… YET noooo lets get upset if Robin is not female too *rolls eyes*…

      • Fastesthe1

        No need to be rude. I’m just upset how much they throw the female variant of Robin under the bus, whereas Corrin shows both genders in a more equal standing. It’s as if Robin is only male, and that representation really rubs me the wrong way.

        Also I really don’t have a preference for Corrin’s gender. I’m genuinely surprisingly they went with the female actually, but I do think a male Corrin should be an option as well.

        • Espiritu

          They will not two of the same char, that will just end with people getting more upset, and trust me people are already upset.

          Might I add Tiki is coming to the game as they just showed her new amiibo coming with the game.

          While personally I prefer male Robin, I think that you should keep your hopes up for a female Robin being in Warriors. Normally when they do Awakening material in FE Spin-offs there’s either a heavy focus on Chrom or on Lucina. While it’s not 100% possibility, I’ve noticed that when Lucina is the focus (Such as in Smash Bros.) we get Male Robin, while when Chrom is the focus (like in Cipher series 1) we get the Female Robin. Since Chrom’s so present in these early trailers and teasers, I would bet by bottom dollar that female Robin at least gets to make an appearance!
          As far as I’m concerned though this whole community is flipping out over nothing – everyone’s so salty over this game and we’ve barely seen anything other than exactly what you would expect so far. I’m sure the real surprises are still to come.

          • Espiritu

            I 100% agree, we know maybe 1% about the game and we have reddit having a shit storm because OW NO sword users lol. This is why I lose faith in people on the internet, and I come off cold. So I em sorry to Fastesthe1 if I come off pissed or angry.

            They also said that chars can use different weapons, which is why I think Robin will be male and Corrin will be female. I also don’t see a skin in release of game due to the fact they will want to add as many different chars to make those “Salty” reddit people happy haha.

          • Fastesthe1

            You’re probably right. Still having my fingers crossed for some sort of female Robin!

          • Traditional Ahri

            Hyrule Warriors had plenty of skins to pay homage to the Legend of Zelda series, certainly we could at the very least get a skin of Female Robin like in Smash!

            Actually, if we didn’t get skins at all I would be somewhat surprised…

  • chris123sm

    Would have been nice to see at least 1 character outside the new games, people would have gotten hype af if they showed Ike/Roy/Hector/etc. Guess we’re gonna have to wait for more info on the next main title tho.

    • Espiritu

      Tiki is coming.

      • Noktis Zariah

        Tiki? SWEET.

        It means we’re getting shifters in this game too, I know it’s unlikely we’ll see any laguz but I’d kill for the chance to mow down armies with Caineghis

        • Espiritu

          I think its 100% that we will get dragon forums, I mean the levels even have the FE style RNG leveling system! They are taking every thing they can from FE and putting into warriors! Super Hyped!

          • Just Some Guy

            Dragon forums? Can the Dragonborn join in?

          • Espiritu

            I rely need to reread my comments haha, that was a super bad spelling error HAHA

  • Diovani Estivalet

    Only sword users…

    • Espiritu

      They just showed Tiki amiibo so no, we have other chars too. Maybe wait for more news before jumping the gun like every reddit user is doing right now.

      • Diovani Estivalet

        Ouch! Fanboy used Fury Attack, it’s not very effective.

        • Espiritu

          Says the salty troll

  • PikaChan

    Tiki amiibo hints to transformation characters like Keaton and Kaden!

    • Espiritu

      Super happy about this!

      • PikaChan

        Same!

  • Fun game and great characters chosen! I doubt it could’ve been much better than this! GOTY for sure!

  • Noktis Zariah

    YEAH CHEESY GENERIC HERO DIALOGUE
    YEAH MOTHER WHO EXISTS ONLY TO BE NICE AND GET KILLED OFF
    YEAH BIG EVIL DRAGON THAT PROBABLY WONT GET BACKSTORY
    YEAH SWORDS YEAH
    NINTENDO WON E3 BY SHOWING US THE SAME OLD IPs GUYS

    My personal salt aside I still can’t wait to give this a try, it’ll be the first Musou game I’ve given a shit about since Sengoku Basara Samurai Heroes. If you can technically call that game one.

  • Just Some Guy
