Koei Tecmo and Omega Force announced that they have a huge game in store for Nintendo Switch gamers in the form of the Musou title, Fire Emblem Warriors.
They released a teaser trailer as part of the live-stream presentation Nintendo held in Tokyo, Japan on January 12th for the Nintendo Switch release date and price announcement. The teaser trailer confirmed that various characters from the Fire Emblem series would make an appearance in the upcoming crossover game. You can check out the teaser trailer below.
Commenters quickly confirmed who was in the game based on the weapons showcased in the trailer, revealing that Chrom, Corrin, Ryoma, Xander and Marth. Sadly no Ike and no Tharja, but knowing Koei Tecmo they’ll have a nice marketing campaign leading up to the release of the game by giving gamers ample promotional material in the form of new character reveals and trailers, similar to how they promote the Dynasty Warriors games or how they handled Hyrule Warriors on the Wii U.
The funny part about the teaser is that a lot of people were quick to lay out lists of the characters from the Fire Emblem side they wanted to see in the game but barely mentioned anything about what sort of stages or story they would like to see unfold.
It’ll be pretty easy for them to win over plenty of gamers if they just focus on making sure the gameplay is solid and not let any SJWs near the localization process so we don’t get another Fire Emblem: Fates fiasco.
There’s no release date set but you can expect to see Fire Emblem Warriors hit the Nintendo Switch during the fall holiday season in 2017. It sounds like the Nintendo Switch will certainly have a stacked holiday season later this year, assuming none of their planned games get delayed (which is likely) and third-party support doesn’t pull out like an unwed boyfriend trying to avoid getting his girlfriend pregnant (which is also likely).
Be sure to keep an eye out as Koei Tecmo reveals more playable characters as part of the playable line-up for the upcoming Fire Emblem Warriors.
