Warriors: New Awakening-themed Trailer

As promised by the official Twitter account, a new trailer for Fire Emblem Warriors has been revealed this week–one that focuses on characters from Awakening.

If you recall, Nintendo/Koei Tecmo accidentally let slip two (or three) new playable characters from Awakening, so the surprise has been slightly ruined. That said, there is one more character revealed who’s not from the aforementioned slip up.

Warning: There are some story spoilers for Awakening.

As predicted, joining Chrom are Lissa, Robin and Masked Marth/Lucina. In addition, Frederick–Chrom and Lissa’s faithful guardian–will be accompanying them during their adventures.

From the footage shown, Lissa and Frederick wield axes, Robin wields magic and Lucina is another sword-wielding hero. Despite appearing as a Cleric, Lissa’s choice of weapon is clearly based off her promoted War Cleric.

Another neat touch is that Chrom, Lissa and Frederick are summoned by the Shield of Flames (presumably this game’s Fire Emblem) during the beginning of Awakening (or perhaps even before).

This means Chrom and company have yet to meet Robin, nor have they met Masked Marth and discovered the truth behind “his” identity. Therefore potentially allowing for a bizarre and dimension-crossing retelling of the major events of Awakening.

    So we get Warpriest Lissa then, it’s not entirely unexpected.

    Saw this coming very obvious logical choices so pretty much Sakura and Elise will get their promoted weapon type and obvious cross healing sister supports with Lissa too that’ll be fun!

    *Casually waits for alts to be confirmed because I want Male Corrin and Female Robin really badly.*

    ” so the surprise has been slightly ruined. “
    “surprise”
    Now we just have to wait for the obvious SD reveals and //maybe// we can get to some actual surprises

  • at what point in the creation of this game did any of this seem like a good idea

    • Probably the point where they all got drunk.

      What do you mean? It’s going a pretty basic path right now.

  • Jamie Schoenrank

    Actually, if you pay close attention, the scenes with Lissa wielding an axe have her in her War Cleric outfit, while her introduction has her in her starting Cleric outfit.

    There’s a problem with the trailer… no Laura Bailey ;_;

  • O.H. X-1990

    I knew the main Shepherds, Male Robin, Lissa, Frederick, and “Marth” (a.k.a. Lucina), would be confirmed. I wonder if the other main Hoshidan army (Hinoka, Takumi, and Sakura) and Nohrian army (Camilla, Leo, and Elise) would join?

      Maybe… probably both royal families from Fates will be in the game, and Azura as well. Azura can be a interesting playable unit, swinging her lance as she dance on the battlefield.

    I swear, if they don’t have Alm and Celica and the like… they’re part of the same world as Marth’s, so they should be…
