Earlier today, Fire Emblem Warriors was showcased during the Famitsu 1500th Issue livestream on NicoNico. Yosuke Hayashi was there as a special guest, and while he did get to show more of the game, it was the very same demo that was playable and showcased at gamescom 2017 last week.
However, there was one surprise at the end: Elise was revealed as a playable character. As you can see for yourself in the trailer below, she fights using a tome and staff, while riding a horse.
Here’s her trailer:
Naturally, Elise will be added to the list of confirmed characters momentarily!
Next, here’s some more gameplay footage for Fire Emblem Warriors (in glorious NicoNico Quality), but as explained above, it’s based on the same demo as the one playable at gamescom 2017. The only difference is that, this time around, the game is in Japanese.
Finally, Koei-Tecmo revealed its line-up for the Tokyo Game Show (September 21st to September 24th), and as expected, Fire Emblem Warriors will be playable there. There will also be stage presentations (streamed live on YouTube and NicoNicp), but it’s not clear what will be shown there. Since the game literally comes out the following week in Japan, we’re most likely going to get details about the inevitable DLC.
One last thing: during the livestream, Yosuke Hayashi announced that the game was now gold: development is officially over, at least for the Japanese version! Of course, the team isn’t quite done with the game (there’s still the inevitable DLC, and last minute polish/bug fixes), but the main bulk of the work is now done.
Fire Emblem Warriors (Switch, New 3DS) will be released on September 28th in Japan, and October 20th in Japan.
