Ahead of Fire Emblem Warriors‘s Western release on 20th October 2017, Nintendo of America has dropped a launch trailer including some neat tidbits about the upcoming DLC.
Each of the 3 DLC Packs (Fates, Shadow Dragon and Awakening) will contain the following:
- Three new playable characters
- Three new History scenarios
- New weapons and costumes
- New support conversations
That’s not all: a free Japanese voice pack will be available to download as soon as the game is released. So they delivered on their promise of dual audio after all!
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.
On the final day of the Tokyo Game Show, Koei Tecmo revealed their plans for the Fire Emblem Warriors DLC.
Currently, three DLC packs are scheduled for release between late 2017 and early 2018 (in Japan).
No concrete details were shared, but if the packs are similar to the ones for Hyrule Warriors (and Legends), we can probably expect to see a few new characters, costumes and maps per pack.
To save money, there is a 3,000 Yen season pass for the 3 DLC packs, which is a saving of 1,200 Yen. Those who buy the season pass will also receive a bonus Bride Lucina costume.

Update: The release dates and pricing for the North American and European versions have been revealed. Please check the links for details.
A new series of Special Maps is now available in Fire Emblem Heroes! To celebrate the upcoming release of Fire Emblem Warriors, Heroes has added five new Fire Emblem Warriors Special Maps to the game. You can play each map on three different difficulties and earn up to 15 orbs for completing them all!
These maps are based on playable characters in Warriors: Frederick, Lucina, Hinoka, Takumi, or Camilla. Each map includes its featured character as a stronger “boss” with reinforcement waves of much weaker enemies. Sound familiar? Yes, you’re effectively playing a Warriors-style map in Heroes!
All of the maps are new and also include music from Warriors as well. Have fun killing waves of enemies while enjoying the new songs!
If that’s not enough for you, there is also a new series of quests for the maps as well! Clear all five maps on Normal and Hard difficulties under certain conditions to earn some Shards, Crystals, and Orbs. Check out the quest details below.
The Fire Emblem Warriors Special Maps and their associated quests will be available until 26 October at 6:59am UTC.
