Leading up to the launch of Fire Emblem Warriors, Nintendo Dream published monthly interviews with the development team. In its most recent issue, the Japanese magazine had its biggest discussion yet. Producer Yosuke Hayashi and director Hiroya Usuda were brought back once again in addition to artist Yuta Matsunaga to talk about Fire Emblem Warriors, with the two being interviewed a few weeks before release (and just prior to the Tokyo Game Show).
Hayashi and Usuda had a ton to say about all aspects of Fire Emblem Warriors. There was more talk about certain characters in the game and the handling of their reveals (including why Azura wasn’t on the initial roster), some of the troubles encountered with designs, approach to the story (light spoilers here), gameplay systems, and different modes.
If you’re interested in Fire Emblem Warriors, you’ll likely want to read our full translation below. Just strap yourselves in, since it’s a long one.

At the Tokyo Game Show last month, it was announced that Fire Emblem Warriors will have DLC. Players can purchase a season pass (or individually) when the game comes out for three different waves of content.
Today’s North American launch trailer for Fire Emblem Warriors gives us a better idea as to what we can expect from the DLC. Koei Tecmo is planning three new playable characters, three new History scenarios, new weapons and costumes, and new support conversations for each pack.
The first Fire Emblem Warriors DLC pack, featuring Fire Emblem Fates, drops in December. The Shadow Dragon pack will be up next in February, followed by Fire Emblem Awakening in March.

It’s been a rather murky road when it comes to Fire Emblem Warriors and dual audio. We’ve never been able to get a clear cut answer straight from Nintendo about the situation – until today that is.
The North American launch trailer for Fire Emblem Warriors reveals that Nintendo will be putting out a free downloadable Japanese voice-pack at launch. This tells us that you should be able to play the game with Japanese voices if you’d like. So the choice is there – play with the dubbed, English cast or the Japanese voices.
