Warriors: Out Now in Japan + Playable Anna Trailer

It’s 28th September 2017 today, which means Fire Emblem Warriors is now officially out in Japan!

To celebrate the occasion, Nintendo and Koei Tecmo have revealed the game’s opening movie. For those concerned, there are next to no spoilers, unless you’ve been actively avoiding the character reveals.

Speaking of, the final playable character (to our knowledge and not counting DLC) has been announced–and rather fittingly, the honour goes to Anna, the series mascot. On this occasion she fights with a bow like in Fates, although she’s a Trickster like in Awakening.

From here, we still have the DLC to look forward to (there’s a glimpse of the Bridal Lucina costume at the end of Anna’s trailer). Plus, of course, the game’s release in Western territories on 20th October 2017.

    Will say, I like how they gave Anna a Ballista attack, because not only is that a reference to how you get the Ballista Class DLC in Fates, but (more importantly) it’s also a reference to Anna’s canon lover, Jake, from Shadow Dragon, who just so happens to be a Ballistician.

      What sold me personally was that Ballastician Tank Spirit Attack.

      I wanna use that all day. To quote and paraphrase LL Cool J:

      “Listen to the base go BOOM!”
      “Explosions~ Overpowerin!”
      “Over the competition, I’m towerin’!”

      How could I forget about Jake… Okay it’s not longer salt in the wound. Well 3DS fans won’t get the reference sadly. Then again it is a reference.

    While I like the moveset, damn does Anna get more gimmicky by the game.

  • Kimmo Pronger

    Welp. They sure did save the best for last. I was on the fence on getting this game but hilariously and ironically, she’s what sold the game for me.

    • And she approves of your decision – just don’t look at your wallet for a while so you don’t see one of her sisters pilfering the rest of your cash in exchange for DLC.

      • Kimmo Pronger

        I’ll keep that in mind. Sound advice! I should pick a god and pray for more money to magically appear in my wallet so that the scales tip between the wallet and the feather for anything can change!
