This week, Fire Emblem Warriors is featured in Famitsu magazine, which means one thing: official website update, with more or less the same contents as the magazine! This time around, we have details about more features, called “Reinforcement” on the official website, that allows you to strengthen characters and their weapons.
But before that, we have some more gameplay footage. Fire Emblem Warriors was showcased yesterday in the Uchidake livestream (a webshow hosted by the Uchida siblings, who happen to voice Rowan and Lianna in the game). We got to see what seems to be the first mission of the game, as well as a conversation with Rowan and Lianna.
We almost saw a cutscene from the very beginning too, but that wasn’t meant to be shown it seems (only a few seconds were shown).
Here’s the gameplay footage:
Now, onto the new details. First, we have a feature called “Coat of Arms”: it allows you to strengthen your characters using various materials found on the battlefield (Hyrule Warriors had a similar feature). You can increase their agility or the number of combos, but also have them learn new skills, and more. You can really customise each character that way, since you’re free to choose what to improve, increase, or have them learn!
Fire Emblem Warriors also has a feature that lets you transfer the characteristics (including special effects) of a given weapon to another one. That way, if you find a weapon with some really great characteristics, but a bit on the weak side, you can transfer the good bits to a stronger one!
Finally, we have three new characters (including one that was revealed last week):
- (Male) Corrin

Fire Emblem Warriors (Switch, New 3DS) comes out on September 28th in Japan, and October 20th in Europe and North America.
