The Fire Emblem Warriors Twitter has provided hints of the next set of character reveals for this month: a female rider and a male archer.
Even among the three main games (Shadow Dragon, Awakening and Fates), we have a large number of potential choices.
Due to their immense popularity, Takumi and Camilla–both from Fates–seem to be the general consensus on who the two characters will be.
This would also make sense assuming the developers intend to bunch up characters from the same game during reveals, as they did with female Robin and Cordelia recently.
Famitsu’s official website has shared a tiny Fire Emblem Warriors-related snippet from its next issue, which arrives on Japanese bookshelves on 3rd August.
We learn that Cordelia, the exceptionally skilled yet humble Ylissean Pegasus Knight, and the female version of Robin the Tactician will be joining the previously-announced Awakening warriors on the battlefield.
The accompanying text also states that the magazine will be delving into key gameplay mechanics such as effective damage, the weapon triangle, as as well as Classic and Casual (modes, presumably).
In Classic, fallen characters cannot be re-deployed, mimicking permanent death in the main series games, while this restriction is removed in Casual. Earlier, the developers had teased permanent death, so it’ll be interesting to see how it works here.
French fans of Fire Emblem got to play Fire Emblem Warriors at this years Japan Expo in Paris (which runs from July 6th through the 9th).
Emblème du Feu, also known as Miatt on our forums, managed to play and share with us some gameplay details, although unfortunately they were limited to 5 minutes of footage. They focused mostly on Lucina
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.
