Warriors: Lyn from FE7 Confirmed, Caeda and Navarre leaked via NOE

On the Nintendo Direct today, N3DS footage was shown, but more importantly, Lyn or Lyndis from Fire Emblem: Blazing Sword will be playable in Fire Emblem Warriors.

Lyn isn’t a stranger to spinoffs as she’s been an assist trophy in Smash Bros. before, and is certainly a popular character, as she did win the Choose your Own Legends poll on the female side.

Edit:

Meanwhile in Europe Caeda has been spotted in their trailer.

As well as Navarre.

It’s timestamped to their appearance.

Lyn’s sprite on the Japanese Warriors website also matches the one on the “box leak”.

The game launches on October 20th in North America and Europe. Keep your eyes open for any more leaks and information.

    Guess that means no Azura..

    This seems like a direct response to the Choose your Legends poll tbh.

    • Theroonco

      I feel like we would have seen Axe Ike if that were the case…maybe this was another character Nintendo insisted/ demanded they add (alongside Lucina)?

      • Skorm94

        Why Axe Ike? He’s just a special version they made for Heroes, like Mounted Archer Lyn, because they won the poll. If Ike’s in the game he’s gonna have Ragnell. If they would do alternate weapons, like in Hyrule Warriors, then I could totally see Ike with Urvan though.

      • Suicunesol

        Looks like Ike got…

        *sunglasses*

        Axed.

  • Theroonco

    I can’t wait to see Celica! Especially if she and Lyn have a support. Outsiders need to stick together 😛

  • Skorm94

    Whelp eating my words guess the leak must be real, although I still doubt that that’s all the characters we will get. Lynn without Ike or Celica without Alm is still too weird.

  • MetalGear Lamia

    Called take that best girl is here can’t wait for Celica too!

  • Strange that nobody mentions possessed Takumi. ^^
    I am so happy about the fact that Lyn is in the game – Who would have guessed that the leaks would turn out to be true?

    • Skorm94

      Yeah noticed that. What is his deal with being possesed again? (without spoiling too much for ppl who haven’t played the game ofc :p)
      Fates is a complete blur to me.

      • A dragon made his feelings of betrayal and jealousy involving Corrin absorb his soul.

        • Sisyphe

          And feelings of inadequacy/doubt, which, as far as I can tell, for those that really like him, tend to be main bit of it

  • Diovani Estivalet

    Now they only need to confirm Tiki, Anna and Celica (I know there is the Tiki Amiibo, but she was not confirmed as playable character yet)

    • Anne O’Namus

      We do know that Stone is weapon type, so it’s all but confirmed

      • Diovani Estivalet

        Oh, I had forgot about the stone icon in the weapons. But Tiki is gonna be the only stone user in the game or we will see others as DLC?

        • Espiritu

          Female Corrin is a dragon user, and I’m 100% sure more dragons will come!

          • Familyplayer

            I’m pretty sure Corrin is considered a sword wielder. They just become a dragon in some attacks.

          • Espiritu

            If you look at the trailor it shows dragon stones as a weapon choice, I’m sure she can use a sword too, as in Zelda some chars could use up too 3/6 weapon types.

  • Jimmy Gagnon

    Navarre was also spotted behind Marth in the Europe trailer.

    • Jedi

      Yeah, I was going to get to that as well! Thanks for the notice

  • Jedi

    This article is changing by the second AHHHHHHH.

    • Skorm94

      This is a pretty funny goof on their part and awesome for us of as well.

      • Jedi

        Those silly Europeans in NoE don’t know the art of Photoshop. 😛

        • Skorm94

          Do I sense a slight to my fellow europeans there Jedi? Because I will not tolerate that from anyone, not even you…

          • Jedi

            I was making a small jab at NoE, not your people at large, my mistake

          • Skorm94

            Just messin with ya no worries 😛

  • Taylor Scott

    Glad to see Lyn, but I’m now convinced we won’t see Ike except in DLC, thus continuing Japan’s tradition of hating him for some inexplicable reason.

  • Sisyphe

    I hate being this guy, given the amount of Fates representation and my general preference for the earlier games, but I really wanted Azura, and it doesn’t look like her odds of making the initial roster are fantastic at this point

    • MetalGear Lamia

      DLC sadly which actually really sucks that she’ll end up as that…

    • Fastesthe1

      Don’t worry, you’re not the only one who wants the Songstress. I’m trying to stay optimistic, though…

    • Lumina Serene

      I would really be surprised if they really didn’t put Azura in the main storyline.

    Japanese trailer features a preview of “Winds Across the Plains” Lyn’s map theme.

    • Jedi

      Thank you for the link.

  • Laggalot101

    Welp, and apparently Lyn’s sprite matches the one on the supposedly leaked boxart. Alright, guess it’s true. I’ll admit when I’m wrong. And with that, I didn’t expect to see Lyn make it into the base game, so hey, the game finally surprised me with a character announcement, good on it, I’ll give it that point.

  • mrkisukes

    Navarre is kind of an odd choice, here they say they don’t want too many sword characters, but then decide to add a relatively insignificant Shadow Dragon character…that fights with swords.

    • Kneekicker

      He’s probably in due to popularity. Navarre archetype characters are always popular, so having the original himself in the game makes sense.

      Though I do agree the abundance of sword users is perplexing.

      • mrkisukes

        Especially perplexing when you think about the other sword characters that are arguably more popular and demanded such as the CYL winners, Ike and Roy, not being in the game.

        Still…fingers crossed they’ll eventually add Laguz: Ranulf, Tibarn and Naesala are my favorites…Lethe would be a good pick though.

        • dmurr

          Navarre might not be playable. They did confirm that there are NPC characters that appear in the story. I wouldn’t be surprised though if they have more playable characters in the game though that just don’t have a part in the story/supports and therefore aren’t featured as “main” characters.

      • Velen (Not WoW)

        I think the whole swords thing was more in regards to Lord characters… Like Seliph, Sigurd, etc.

        -and if you think about it… Technically speaking the majority of the cast aren’t explicitly Lords class-wise. Even though the Fates siblings could technically count as lords due to their roles.

  • Familyplayer

    This is the weirdest PR I think I’ve ever encountered with a game. “Screw you guys! But here’s one for you because we don’t have any idea what we’re doing!” I’m not mad or happy, just incredibly confused.

    • Espiritu

      Not sure what ur point is, they added chars people wanted, and ur still not happy, seems to me the problem is u, not the game.

      • Familyplayer

        As I said, I’m not mad or anything, I just wonder why they seem to be going back on what they said by adding a sword lord when they already complained about too many swords. I accepted the 3 game thing a while ago, but I’m more confused about this reveal more than anything. I’ll still probably buy it and have fun since it’s a warriors game, but the people in charge of this game’s PR are doing some weird stuff at this point.

        • Kimmo Pronger

          Perhaps I can offer some kind of explanation? Not that I’ll be much help but here goes. ‘

          Somebody who worked for the public relations division of this game must have realized the outcry and severe criticisms of the game. Anticipating that the game wouldn’t sell well because of the often-perceived predictable reveals, the person thought and perhaps convinced the developers that adding a character from the older titles will be a boon.

          While I applaud them for finally adding an old fan favorite from the first international Fire Emblem title, and as someone who loves Lyn, I begrudgingly have to admit that her reveal THIS LATE and about two weeks before the Japanese release of the game does more harm than good. Here’s why.

          Lyn’s arrival alone breaks two promises. Those being that only characters from Shadow Dragon/Awakening/Fates and that having too many swords is something that fans would not have to worry about, according to them. Lyn is NOT from either of those games and she’s a sword user, too. Now that we know that any other character from other games is fair game, this’ll lead to an astronomical increase of demands of other popular pre-Awakening characters such as Ike, Hector, Eliwood, Roy, etc. If the intention was to get the critics of the roster to shut up, Lyn alone will not do it and definitely not since she’s yet another sword user. Quite frankly, I don’t understand why they couldn’t make her a sword/bow user like how her Blade Lord self was. Perhaps she’ll get a class change and get the bow this way, but…

          There are many people convinced that the roster will just be 25 characters because of the character cards in the limited edition. With Lyn’s arrival plus the leaks and the Tiki amiibo, this brings the character total up to 22. If the roster capacity is indeed 25, I can imagine that a lot of people are feeling jaded about their favorite character arriving by now. Furthermore, Shadow Dragon was among the games they themselves said the majority of characters were from. Outside of Marth, there has been virtually no official reveals (Not including leaks). I was among those who was expecting a Shadow Dragon reveal and to see Lyn on the screen instead of a Shadow Dragon character was just both surprising (Probably the first real surprise to most people) and appalling. It’s baffling to see Shadow Dragon getting shafted this hard after it’s been virtually the Fates-show for the past few weeks.

          I hope I gave a good enough explanation for you but I’ll admit that the bulk of this is only speculation. So take it for what you will.

        • Velen (Not WoW)

          Well, like I said earlier. I think the diff here is by technicality: most of the cast actually aren’t explicitly Lord class characters.
