Nintendo announced on Monday that it will release its Fire Emblem Warriors (Fire Emblem Musou) Nintendo 3DS and Switch game in North America on October 20. It also revealed a "Special Edition" release for the game's Switch version.
The Special Edition will include a three-CD soundtrack, 25 cards with character art and slip case container, and a dual-sided poster showing the game's characters.
The game is slated for release for both consoles in Japan on September 28, and in Europe on October 20.
The game's story begins when, the Kingdom of Aitriss is enveloped in darkness without warning, and an otherworldly gate appears within the castle. Powerful creatures overpower the castle guards. The castle soon falls, and the darkness slowly but surely encroaches upon the Kingdom. But there is hope in the form of Shion and Liane, the prince and princess who escaped even as the castle burned. They possess a thread that ties together the destiny of heroes. Bearing the Shield of Fire granted to them by their mother, their journey to confront the powerful darkness begins.
The game's playable characters include Marth from Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light; Robin (male and female), Chrom, Lissa, Frederick, Cordelia, and Lucina from Fire Emblem Awakening; Corrin (female), Xander, Ryoma, Hinoka, Takumi, Camilla, and Leo from Fire Emblem Fates; and original characters Liane and Shion.
KOEI Tecmo Games, its Omega Force team, and its Team Ninja team are developing the game. Omega Force is a subsidiary of KOEI Tecmo, and it develops KOEI Tecmo's Musou (Warriors) series of games. The series is known for its action hack-and-slash gameplay where players control a character to fight hundreds of enemies at once.
