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.
We finally, after nearly 5 months of waiting have some proper information on the upcoming Fire Emblem Warriors.
First off we’ll go over some translated tidbits, all of which come from this week’s issue of Famitsu.
Two original protagonists: Shion and Lian. They are twins from the Kingdom of Aitriss and the children of Queen Yuana.
Shion (VA: Yūma Uchida – Who voices Rock Howard in The King of Fighters XIV in terms of recent game roles.)
The royal prince of the Kingdom of Aitriss. Aspires to be a knight who fights on the front-lines rather than a king and thus encourages his twin sister Lian to inherit the throne.
Lian (VA: Māya Uchida – Who voices Sharena in the Japanese version of Fire Emblem Heroes.)
Shion’s older twin sister. Clever and is understanding of her own faults, so she has no desire to inherit the throne. Rather, she encourages Shion to become king.
It’s well known by now that Fire Emblem has made a fantastic debut in Project X Zone 2, featuring Chrom and Lucina as playable characters on their roster. With little more than a single sighting in Famitsu as evidence, Tiki has been announced as an event character in Project X Zone 2. Sadly. she will not be a playable character, as event characters in this game serve roles simply defined as NPCs.
Project X Zone 2 will be available for trial version download on October 9 (yes, this Friday), so if you own a Japanese 3DS, you may be able to give this game a whirl and experience Fire Emblem in a whole new way!

In my previous update, I pointed out that Chrom and Lucina are now in the roster as a paired unit for Project X Zone 2. This is pretty groundbreaking news, as Project X Zone and Project X Zone 2 have only included characters from Bandai Namco Entertainment, Capcom, and Sega. Chrom and Lucina mark the first appearance of another company’s involvement in the series, and a big one at that, being as that company is Nintendo. Let’s take a closer look at what we have learned.
