Update: The free DLC is coming to Europe, North America, etc. on the same day.
The Japanese Fire Emblem Warriors website has updated with news about a version 1.2.0 update arriving on 16th November 2017, as well as a free English voice pack (just like we got a free Japanese voice pack).
Whereas 1.1.0 merely added the ability to buy DLC and a few quality of life improvements, the new update will include new battles, costumes and gameplay features.
To begin with, there will be new costumes for Rowan and Lianna, pictured above, dubbed “Gold Prince” and “Gold Princess” respectively.
Next, a new and rather intriguing weapon attribute has been introduced, which we’ll tentatively call “Crushing Blow”. If equipped, attacks will trigger “Armour Break”, which removes the foe’s armour, revealing their… well, underwear.
So just like Sophie’s skill or the Raider weapons in Fates. Except Armour Break lowers the Defence and Resistance stat, so it actually has gameplay merit. The catch is that if you’re hit by a foe’s Strong attack, your character will get inflicted by Armour Break.
If that’s not enough, a new History Map “Heroic Arena” will be available to play. According to the description, it will focus on Rowan and Lianna as they battle against other heroes in the arena. Perhaps you’ll get their new costumes by completing it?
Finally, there will be some extra gameplay enhancements including the ability to sell multiple weapons at once(!), new blessings in the Temple and various bug fixes, etc.
