Nintendo began streaming a trailer for KOEI Tecmo Games' Fire Emblem Warriors (Fire Emblem Musou) Nintendo 3DS and Switch game on Wednesday. The video reveals Lyn from Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade (originally released in North America simply as Fire Emblem) as a playable character.
In addition, KOEI Tecmo Games began streaming two trailers for the game on Wednesday. The videos focus on characters from Fire Emblem Fates, from the Hoshido and Nohr factions in the story. The first video showcases Xander, Camilla, Leo, Elise, and Corrin (female) from Nohr. The second video showcases Ryoma, Hinoka, Takumi, and Corrin (male) from Hoshido.
The game is slated for release for both consoles in Japan on September 28, and in North America and Europe on October 20. The North American 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'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.
