Fire Emblem Warriors is a very curious title in the FE universe. It’s not being made by Intelligent Systems, and it’s not a turn-based RPG. Instead, its a hack-n-slash game made by the team at Omega Force and Team Ninja. These are the teams behind the Dynasty Warriors series, as well as Hyrule Warriors, which mixed the genre with Legend of Zelda characters. Well, they’re at it again with Fire Emblem, and fans are taking notice of what they’re doing.
Recently a new trailer debuted for Fire Emblem Warriors and showed off new characters in the forms of Frederick, Lissa, Robin, and Lucina. And at San Diego Comic Con, Nintendo set up some demo booths for players to come and test some of their latest games, with Warriors being one of them. Be sure to check out the recorded footage from GameXplain.
Lucina, Robin, and Lissa all play very differently. Lucina has her legendary blade Falchion, but she also has a Light Bow that can attack from long range. Robin on the other hand has a vast array of magic that can cause different amounts of damage and attack at different ranges. Despite the team noting the power of the weapons triangle in the game, Robin is one who actually breaks that by not using those weapons.
Lissa on the other hand is a deceptively fast axe wielder. In fact, she’s actually quite devastating with it. And yet, they maintain her core character by also allowing her to heal, making her someone you definitely want to keep an eye on.
The next question of course is who else will be revealed for Fire Emblem Warriors. Given the style of trailers recently, our best is that Shadow Dragon is going to get some new characters, but what do you think?
