The official Japanese website for Fire Emblem Warriors has been updated and reveals lots of new information such as the playable characters, as well as a look at the ‘pair up’ system which allows you and another character to team up and fight alongside one another. It also gives us a look at some of the magic attacks players will be able to unleash upon the battlefield.
As Gamatsu reports, the characters revealed are as follows:
Hinoka (voiced by Kaori Nazuka)
The first princess of Hoshido. She has an honest personality like that of a soldier. She always tries to fight by cutting through the vanguard.
(voiced by Yuki Kaji)
The second prince of Hoshido. He wants his power to be recognized by everyone. He has intense emotional ups and downs.
(voiced by Miyuki Sawashiro)
The first princess of Nohr. In battle, she reveals a cruelty against her enemies. She dotes on Corrin.
(voiced by Mamoru Miyano)
The second prince of Nohr. An intellectual with excellent magical power. An elite who can handle anything flawlessly.
The ‘Pair Up’ system will allow players to team up with an NPC comrade and have them watch their back. A gauge will then appear which, when filled, will allow players to unleash a ‘Duel Attack’ that breaks a enemies’ guard. You can also perform a ‘Dual Guard’ which blocks an enemy attack. If you manage to fill the vanguard and rear vanguard Musou Gauges then you can unleash a “Dual Ougi” technique which will differ depending on the teamed up characters and how strong their bond is.
Magic attacks are particularly effective against enemies with low magic resistance and unleashing a barrage of magic can dramatically change the tide of battle.
Fire Emblem Warriors is set to be released on the Nintendo Switch and the new Nintendo 3DS. It will be available in Japan on September 28 and October 20 for Western territories.
