Warriors: Hong Kong Pre-order Bonus

Nintendo Hong Kong announced that local pre-orders of Fire Emblem Warriors will come with a limited edition Fire Emblem Warriors-themed carry case.

The case, presumably designed for the Nintendo Switch, features the 6 characters from the box art on the front and the Chinese Fire Emblem Warriors logo on the back. Note that the final design may vary.

A full list of participating retailers offering this pre-order bonus can be found on this page. As usual, supplies are limited and given out on a first come, first serve basis. (If in doubt, be sure to ask the retailer.)

In any case, Warriors will release in Hong Kong on the same day as in Japan: 28th September 2017. As we reported earlier in the year, the game will be the second Fire Emblem title (after Echoes) to receive an official Chinese translation.

Warriors: Female Robin Gameplay

The Fire Emblem Warriors Twitter has just revealed some gameplay of female Robin.

We don’t have much male Robin footage to go off of, but I did notice a new Musou attack compared to the one we’ve seen from the GameXplain video. This one features several charge attacks with lightning spheres diving around and blasting into enemies.

Until we see more of both Robins in action, we can’t be fully sure that they are 100% clones. That said, since Female Robin is confirmed to be only playable outside of story mode, it’s very likely she’s just a skin with a bit more detail.

It’s entirely possible that male Corrin will receive this same treatment–being a skin of the already announced female Corrin. However beyond these two Avatars, I highly doubt we’ll have any other “clone” characters like this.

Warriors: Developer Interview on Character Choices and First Impressions

We have had another developers interview from Nintendo Dream that the great people at Nintendo Everything managed to translate.

The interview goes over several points; I will highlight some in quotes.

ND: I see. But it must be hectic to choose characters based on their relationships with each other. You might even end up having too many characters that couldn’t be removed. For example if you were to add Chrom, then how about Lucina?

Hayashi: But actually, we used to stray away regarding Lucina.

ND: And what do you mean by that?

Hayashi: At first there were talks in the development team of, “Should we remove Lucina?” However, after we talked with Nintendo and Intelligent Systems, we reconsidered that, thinking “That’s just not possible after all” (laughs).

ND: Why did you want to remove her?

Hayashi: It’s an obvious thing; it’s not because we hated her or something, but the reasons are because there are already too many sword characters, and because she’s of the children generation.

Usuda: Which means, when we were contemplating on whether to add people from the children generation, if Lucina wasn’t added, then we would’ve come to a conclusion that we wouldn’t add anyone from the children generation.

So Lucina was originally on the chopping block, which may shock quite a number of fans. However later on they stated that characters that shared the same class became more of a concern due to Lucina’s inclusion.

Warriors: Cordelia Footage + Dragonstone Update

The official Fire Emblem Warriors Twitter has revealed a short trailer showing off the recently-revealed Cordelia in action.

Cordelia’s gameplay seems to revolve around spinning, dashes and aerial acrobatics in general.

Her Musou (special attack) utilizes her position in the pegasus squadron to summon a massive army of pegasi to rush foes, not too unlike how Tanith in Path of Radiance can summon reinforcement pegasus knights.
