    So Ike and Lyn loses against Cow..i mean Camilla in the voting gauntlet, just more Fates and Awakening characters in Warrior now this…Seriously being a old FE fan is harder than being a Metroid fan.

    • Zeebor

      I like Wars. Screw you

      • Exposer

        Wars or warriors?

        • ronin4life

          Off topic, I have always wanted a Fire Emblem Wars. Where you have armies of nameless cavalry and infantry in Advance Wars fashion to take the enemy throne/castle.

          After getting into Nobunaga’s ambition that dream shifted into a game with an overworld that lets you play as a large number of nations with eyes set on conquest…

          • Zeebor

            Isn’t that what Wargroove is trying to do?

        • Zeebor

          Battalion Wars, mostly, but Lash is best girl.

          • Exposer

            Never played that i like AW, but never finish mission 7.

    • Semi Colon Parenthesis

      And if you make even relatively calm complaints, you’re an elitist! I like Fates and Awakening, in fact Awakening was my first (technically) FE, but man am I bummed out we don’t have “memes” like Ike and Roy.

      • Vigilante_blade

        For some strange reason, if you prefer an older game in a series, people call you an elitist. This is weird to me.

        • KnickKnackMyWack

          No, that doesn’t make you elitist. Criticizing people who disagree with you does.

          • Vigilante_blade

            Criticizing opinions is actually normal. Not elitism.

          • KnickKnackMyWack

            Really. From where I come from, that’s considered fallacious debate.

          • Vigilante_blade

            You describe yourself and I try to spare you a snarky comment, then you start not making sense.

      • Exposer

        Elitist how? I said that i like the old games, not that i hate the new ones.

        • Vigilante_blade

          It sold quite well actually.

          • KnightWonder

            It sold less than FE Fates, which sold 1.89 million. Shadows of Valentia hasn’t broken the million mark yet.

    • Tlink7

      Gee, Camzilla, a character from a title that was more popular than Ike and Lyn’s games combined wins from the latter two… what a surprise 😛 not even talking about the… massive… advantage Boobzilla has :3

      Being a fan of something isn’t hard, difficult, horrible, etc., don’t be such a drama queen xD

      • Exposer

        So if i who havent touch 3DS games for money reason should just keep quiet? Why?

        • Tlink7

          When did I say you’re not allowed to think what you want?

    • Vigilante_blade

      I tend to agree. Camilla is everything bad about current FE.

      • Busterblade

        https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/fireemblem/images/c/c4/Nailah_Artwork_%28FE10%29.png/revision/latest/scale-to-width-down/290?cb=20121223095954

        Waifu material, pretty well curved as well, everything bad about FE?

        https://fireemblemblog.files.wordpress.com/2008/10/lethe.jpg

        Oh look a furry, most certainly waifu material, also everything bad about FE?

        You see how silly this is getting yet? So can we stop getting on eachother’s backs yet? That would be fantastic, thanks.

        • Vigilante_blade

          Lethe and Nailah are each from a proud laguz warrior tribe with a rich history and distinct politics, dealing with opression and abuse. They are not sexualized in the least and have actual personalities.

          As for Sonia, she is a cruel vilain with much character development. Not a waifu material at all.

          There is a huge difference between a well-written character that happens to be sexy and obe that is written TO BE sexy.

          • Busterblade

            If you’d have played Fates properly, which I know you haven’t, you’d have known the depths of Camilla’s character. She’s far more than she appears, if you’re willing to look, but nobody can see with their eyes closed.

            Camilla who was used by her mother as a pawn in court, having grown up being used in politicking by her mother to get in Garon’s good graces. Her acting towards the avatar being explained by trying her utmost to give what she was denied all her life. The way she looks is, just like in the case of Sonia, and Lethe and any other “sexy” FE character nothing more than that: A way they look.

            Yes it was arguably “pushed in your face” more, but if that wasn’t there, then there was nothing to set her apart from them.

          • KnightWonder

            What’s funny is, comparing both her and Sonia, Camilla is actually dressed far more conservatively.

          • Busterblade

            Hahaha, yes. She could actually withstand some good blows with ARMOUR whereas Sonia would get severed with a single hit looking like that.

          • KnightWonder

            Yeah, she’s got actual armor going on. Unlike Sonia who would die to a fart.

          • Vigilante_blade

            Not only did I play around 1500 hours in FE fates, all three versions combined, I have maxed every stats, got every possible skills and support you can have in one playthrough. I have beaten all of the DLC multiple times, enough to have the skills given to each and every unit. I know far more about Fates and the rest of the series than every single user here combined.

            Actually, Lethe isn’t ven sexualized… She is a cat person because that is he race. She has a deep well of story to look into. Sonia is actually an extremely in depth character who was “made” sexy for story purposes. She is not human. Her master used her to seduce the leader of an assassin’s guild. She as BUILT to be a femme fatale murderer. You clearly never played those games and can’t compare Camilla’s boring story to theirs. Camilla is nothing more than a creepy stalker that everyone would be revolted by if she did not have giant breast. If she looked any less fetished, her behaviour would not cut it for anyone.

            She actually takes away from the game she was in by her very presence. Then again, that is a drop in the bucket for a game with a story so bad it is offensive.

          • Busterblade

            “She has a deep well of story to look into. Sonia is actually an
            extremely in depth character who was “made” sexy for story purposes.” Well what a coincidence, you’ve just described Camilla.

            Boring is a perception, Vigilante. You think that her story is boring, and that Sonia’s is better, and that is fine, but don’t take that as something definitive, because it isn’t.

            Also, you didn’t even address this, which is a fact “The game may not use these characters as such, but the fanbase certainly will, and that has been happening LONG before Awakening/Fates have either even existed. All the creators did in Fates, was merely directly incorporate what the fanbase had been doing all this time (but far more restrained in comparison).”

            You say you’re capable of seeing opinions, of recognizing someone else’s side and story, yet why do you then say things like this: “Then again, that is a drop in the bucket for a game with a story so bad it is offensive.”, when you KNOW that there are people that liked that story. Can they not have it? Can they not enjoy it? Can each not have their own here, Vigilante?

          • Vigilante_blade

            Camilla was made sexy in order to sell through sex-appeal. Her story didn’t need for her to be sexualized and to use weird baby talk play on your character. She could have been fragile in many more realistic ways. Camilla’s story doesn’t justify that she infantilizes yet really wants to sleep with you. This is dowbright creepy and psychotic.

            You can like Camilla, I can respect that, but she is poorly-written and objectively only exists to fill a fetish quota of the busty, doting older sister that you find in every eroge game under the sun.

            Again, people are allowed to enjoy what they want. We live in a world where Twilight is a best seller. Fates is this series’ Twilight. Poorly written, has fans.

          • RoadyMike

            Was all this waifu crap such a huge selling point of previous FE games? I think that’s the key difference between then and now. Like you said, sex sells and every time I see a FE discussion online, the girls in the games(the guys too to some extent) become a main talking point and they’re all girls/guys from Awakening and Fates

            I don’t play the games so I don’t know

          • Velen (Not WoW)

            Admittedly, no, it wasn’t. However. Shipping has always been a thing.

            I think that’s the real draw for the marriage system in Awakening and to a lesser extent: Fates for some. The fact you could literally ship almost anybody with almost anybody.

          • RoadyMike

            Shipping is a fan thing and I never liked it myself. The way it was made such a big deal/core element in those games instantly turned me off. I don’t want to have to romance these characters to get other units

          • Vigilante_blade

            Funny thing is that by making marriage into a mechanic, it actually made me look at optimal stat and skills for second gen units instead of letting me pair up those I wanted together. Sure, I could have paired up two characters I wanted together, but that would have meant being punished with a weaker unit… Or even worse, losing out on a unit entirely because I didn’t take into account that I had married off all of Benny’s marriage options.

            I don’t want supports to be a puzzle. It is flair to add to a game; extra lore and development. I don’t want to feel constrained by it.

          • RoadyMike

            Now you kinda know how I feel. I’ve been doing nothing but breeding pokemon for the past 2 weeks for trades and IV’s. I’m so close to getting 1 perfect IV Sandshrew to use as an ancestor for a lot of other mons. It’s a blessing that it’s in the same egg group as most of my favorite pokemon. I just need to get another damn destiny knot

            Though it’s different when you only get one chance to get one character. If you mess up the stats or leave yourself without the right parent combo, you have to reset from who knows what point

          • That’s a good point. Although I’m finding even the older games have had a very long history of shipping (shipping wars?). And that’s from the JP and Western fanbase, so it’s interesting to see it just being tapped into so much more now.

          • Vigilante_blade

            In every game, people had male or female character that they particularily fancied. People will pick a waifu or husbando in everything, even Spongebog Squarepants. However, characters were not writteb with fanservice in mind. They were written to enrich the story or world as opposed to being a box to tick. Sure, not every character was great, but they at least had motivations and multiple sides to their personalities. Newer games are essentially going to TV tropes to build their characters, save for Shadows of Valentia that is a bit more grounded.

          • RoadyMike

            I’ve been hearing pretty good things about SoV and I’m liking what I hear about the waifucrap being toned down, Is it worth? I only ever got like 1/3 the way into Sacred Stones, failed at playing a level in Radiant Dawn at a frien’s house and I uninstalled Awakening long ago

          • Vigilante_blade

            I think it may be worth your time. SoV tries a lot of different things that sets it appart from other games. You would have to let go of your preconceptions based off earlier experiences with the series and play it with a fresh mindset.

            Some characters could be considered attractive, and there is one weird yandere trope, but people call her out on it being unhealthy and abnormal. Otherwise, I think that the characters are very likeable, the story is good and the visuals are incredible.

          • RoadyMike

            I think I heard about that one character you’re talking about. Some people were discussing it on some forum I stumbled upon and they were getting pretty heated over this one character, trying to make sense of it all. Some defending her, some bashing. I got bored and it was none of my business anyway.
            I do know, however, Yanderes are a very very stale, overused, exaggerated and severely poorly executed trope in any japanese media that I wouldn’t blame anyone for completely hating on them. I’m surprised people still insist on using these kinds of characters(usually girls. People seem to like male counterparts)

            The only game in the series I’ve sate down and played for over 1-2 hours is Sacred Stones. I think my slate is for the most part clean. I do wanna get Wargroove instead, honestly, because I really like how close it is to AW but I also wanna see what the hubub is about in SoV

          • It’s kind of ironic, actually. Yusuke Kozaki is very capable of designing women that aren’t sexualized in the least (most of his NMH roster/designs), so it makes me wonder what happened to FE.

            I don’t think the previous FE artists designed many characters with the intent to be sexualized either. But their designs alone aren’t the problem. Heck, I like male and female characters designed to be sexualized (depending on handling). But Nintendo did introduce Camilla to us in the first trailer with her boobs bouncing in our faces; and that was rather weak to do, but I do think it set her up to look one way and when you delve into her character, you see that’s not her at all. Not entirely a bad decision, but I wouldn’t have done it that way.

            Also as far as designs go, Hidari is great at designing female characters and he’s rather like the old artists, though SoV sounds relatively weak still when it comes to support content (but I haven’t played it yet myself).

          • Vigilante_blade

            It has less supports, but they make up for quantitt with chemistry. They elicit emotions from me like laughter or smiles for example. I would much rather less supports if they can all be this efficient.

            As for Kozaki, I remember loving his work in Valkyria Chronicles, but Hidari brought a breath of fresh air.

          • I’m sure they do. I can’t speak for much of Fates, but I like the writing in Awakening overall. Some of the early supports are very weak and kind of makes the build up suck, but the later stuff and rest of the writing is good.

            I like all of the artists they’ve had on the series (including for Heroes, and they even have some of my fave artists involved; like Hoshino Lily and Noizi Ito), but I am a huge fan of Hidari, so that’s just a perfect combo (given Hidari doesn’t usually sexualize female characters unnecessarily and has absolutely solid designs, and I was already a fan).

          • Vigilante_blade

            I think Clair is a good example. She is quite pretty, but wears armour and has a regal look to her. No exposed cleavage, nothing sexual. She is just appealing because of an elegant design.

            I guess the difference between Awakening and Fates for me is that I thought that while Awakening’s story was unremarkable, childish even (power of friendship, etc…), Fates actually insulted my intelligence.

          • There’s plenty of examples across the series. Then again, I think the sexualizing of the characters themselves delves into a number of other issues. As linked above, there have been sexy (and sexualized) looking women before. There’s nothing wrong with that; but when it’s mostly or only female characters, and depending on the handling, it’s tacky and just part of the status quo. (And frankly, it doesn’t fit the series.)

            For me personally, it just comes down to the fact that the older and newer games are both guilty of those designs, and both have elements of well handled female characters, but there are things that are nitpicked more in the newer games, even though they didn’t start the trend.

            I don’t mind power of friendship stuff if written well, because I can buy that and hey, I more appreciate something that puts value to peoples’ relationships and what they can accomplish. The story itself is unremarkable, but most of the basic plots and character arcs are “generic” throughout the series. It’s the writing itself that stands out. Awakening avoids a few tiresome traps that any media likes to abuse (people actually communicate and don’t just internalize or keep important secrets that could later be dangerous, etc).

            But ultimately, it’s about personal taste and preference. Even if I can acknowledge when the writing is better, if it’s still based on tropes I don’t care for, I’m not going to be enamored with it. And that’s fine. (Not everything is always going to be for me – or anyone, for that matter; but that’s life.)

          • Vigilante_blade

            I am a completionist. I ofteb finish games I am not overly fond of. There are good things in fates, but it is a weak entry.

    • Hidden Flare

      First I want I say this pretty off topic with this news, sure it’s fire emblem but this is talking about game mechanics and modes, not even about characters. The closest is that shadow dragon has a map and Validar may be a character.

      Second what is with acting like Ike lost? Yes I suppose there is a possibility but if you looked at what’s happening in game now… https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/73ab1e12720a59b65e0ce846f13175b3a8dbfcd4a58c904837fd68eae418e391.png you will see it’s nearing a tie. Ike can win or lose. Just wait a few hours.

      • Exposer

        When i wrote this Camilla had a 4x bonus, it mantain trend for 2 hours.

        • Hidden Flare

          Yeah I understand but I do prefer waiting for the end result which should be soon.

          • Exposer

            Yeah Ike won, but apparently the update eclipse that…The irony.

          • XimXim

            The way I see it is that Ike beat Camilla so hard the game forced update on everyone’s phones

    • Fredy Rodriguez Ortega

      why are FE fan so annoying? you have been getting FE games in a decent amount of time, with plenty of supports and sales, even you have a lot of character in Smash bros and are going to have an spin off, noooo but you like to cry about what you don’t have.

      • Busterblade

        “The grass is always greener on the other side” A cycle without end, isn’t it?

        • Fredy Rodriguez Ortega

          hehe yeah, so true wise Fore

      • RoadyMike

        Hey I’d be annoyed too if the only characters that get any kind of recognition were only from the last 2 games, despite the series spanning many games over 20+ years

        For exampe, I think I’ve made it clear I’m a huge fan of Pokemon. Imagine if Pokken consisted ONLY of gen 1 pokemon just because it’s “the most memorable” or some other bs like that. ‘Genwunners’ rejoice while everyone else is left wondering why Pokemon like Blaziken, Lucario, Greninja etc are nowhere to be seen; or even mentioned. I wouldn’t find that fair or even sensible. Pokemon, like FE, are more than just 1 or 2 games

      • Exposer

        Nope, those were waifus simulators, i mean just look at the characters, Valentia sold bad in comparision at it dosent have marriage, nobody wanted Corrin or Lucina there, just TMS was a good spin off, people is not complaining about the support, people is angry because they are being forgotten just for dumb reasons.
        Thats not crying Nintendo fans did it when Wii and WiiU came out and now we have Switch or when you were asking for a new Metroid, new IP’s, better online? You were asking for a better treat.

        • NeptuniasBeard

          Why is it you folks keep blaming Valentia’s lower sales on lack of marriage options? It’s not like the game was literally Fates minus marriage. It was a warts and all, lipstick on a pig remake. I owned the game and disliked it greatly. And it had NOTHING to do with the lack of marriage and everything to do with what I found to be very questionable game design choices that would be barely tolerable in the 90’s, and very irritating 25 years later.

          • Bart

            This, I wanted to like this game, but enemy units that can teleport behind my lines, in a game with permadeath? Yeah, no thanks, I just stopped playing at that point. Maybe I’ll get back to it sometime but I doubt it, plenty of other games to be getting on with…

          • NeptuniasBeard

            I called it done once I had to trek through a desert fortress where enemies respawned near infinitely and had +20 avoid. That map took me a hour longer than it had any right to…

            That may be some people’s idea of fun. But not mine.

            Not mine…

        • Fredy Rodriguez Ortega

          Those waifus simulator(which you have not played if you don’t have a 3ds or you played it using emulators) saved the franchise. Metroid fans just asked for a game with Metroid gameplay because there have been years since the last Metroid game, you won’t see us crying because the did not add our favorite powerup/lbeam/suit in the last game. As an FE fan I am used to always play with different character and don’t get to attached emotionally to anybody because in each game you play with different ones, I would like to play Ike or Soren in Heroes but I won’t cry about it

          • Exposer

            Not because something save something is god-like or pure gold, Awakening is a good game, period, but Fates which sold even better is that the new trend? How? Why?

          • Fredy Rodriguez Ortega

            Business only want money, so yes if something save something is pure gold for them. They are making FE heroes to sell the most that is why they are targeting the last 2 games audiences(a big majority), but if the gameplay and features of this game are good I don’t see why to complaint and just have fun

    • NeptuniasBeard

      Because you CHOOSE to let it affect you, then act like a victim.

      Don’t step out into the sun and then complain that it’s too hot.

      If a video game series was going in a direction I don’t like, I would invest my interest elsewhere. Crazy how easy it is too

      • Exposer

        It dosent affect me, i just want some kind of recognition, how is that bad?
        I dont even support it like that since i dont have 3DS, i like the series, why i should leave just because of that? Did you even understand what I said?

        • NeptuniasBeard

          Do you even understand what you were doing?

    • NinetalesCommander

      Not gonna lie, I’m a huge fan of the modern fire emblem games but I also feel terrible for the long running fans. Characters like Hector, Lyn, and Tibarn look really interesting so it saddens me they are not getting the spotlight in this game. I would say the same for Roy and Ike but…well…I think it’s obvious why I’ve had my fill for those 2.

      • Exposer

        Finally as i said i dont hate thoe games, yeah im critic, but come on more recognizion.

  • ToonAddict1

    So, from the looks of it, History Mode is going to be Fire Emblem Warriors’ equivalent to Legend Mode in Hyrule Warriors.

    A couple of additional comments about History Mode:

    1. The fact that Shadow Dragon is being showcased in the Famitsu scan is when it comes to History Mode is hopefully a sign that the rest of the representatives from that game will be announced soon.

    2. Who else is hoping that this will lead to DLC with History Mode maps based on other Fire Emblem games and new playable characters (if so, then you can probably guarantee Path of Radiance/Radiant Dawn and Fire Emblem Gaiden DLC).

    • Aemzso

      Legend Mode was HW’s story mode. It says History is different from Story Mode. Story = Legend.

      • ToonAddict1

        What I meant to say was Adventure Mode (with me fixing it in the original post).

    • ≈ KobobKC ≈ ᔦꙬᔨ

      I think you mean Adventure Mode from HW.

      • ToonAddict1

        That’s exactly what I meant.

  • Busterblade

    Very interesting. Goes to show that the gameplay at E3 was but the tip of the ice-berg. Now I’m getting excited for this.

  • chancetime

    It looks good and I like the idea of History Mode. Of course some people are still gonna whine about the roster but I’ve accepted it and am looking forward to what may come.

  • Tlink7

    Well if Validar is in then everyone is lol …unless the triggered battle is literally just an attack animation like in normal FE

    • Busterblade

      I’ll happily take the opportunity to slap him about some more. Any day, every day, any time.

  • Hidden Flare

    OK this sounds pretty interesting and sounds like an interesting way of building characters. I can also see they took a chapter with hyrule Warriors with history mode. I can like all this.

  • KnightWonder

    Having gotten into the series via Awakening, and have actually played Sacred Stones on the 3DS, both sides need to chill out. Both have their strengths, and in my eyes, both are equally as good. The best thing we can do right now is support the franchise, so that it’s not at risk of falling apart, again.

    • Busterblade

      That has my blessing. I’ve merely posted my point below to show that “waifuemblem” was a part of franchise from the start, and not something the “new fan-base” dragged in. Nothing wrong with it, those characters look good in their own right, and I’d love to see them appear in DLC or other FE: Warriors games that may/may not follow.

      • KnightWonder

        I bet there will be DLC too. Hyrule Warriors had some, and they included characters and items from much older games. And yeah, I agree. It especially bothers me when people point at Camilla and say that she’s what’s wrong with the FE fanbase. Uh no, there’s been plenty of other really attractive female characters, and they’ve gotten their fair share of hentai art, especially freaking Lyn.

        • Busterblade

          Yeah, I rest my case on that one. Lethe is another good example, I’m sure Sonia has plenty of that too. “waifu” has been a part of FE since the start, not sure why it’s suddenly a problem now…

          • KnightWonder

            Probably because it’s an actual mechanic, i.e the marriage system. But yeah, waifus have been a part of FE since the beginning. Heck, most of, if not all, of Nintendo’s franchises have had waifus.

  • Princess_Eevee9

    The more I hear about this game, the more I’m wishing that it was October already! So it’s like a combination of Legend Mode and Adventure Map from Hyrule Warriors?!?

  • Izaal Daar

    Anyone knows if this game is going to have any kind of multiplayer option in Switch?

    • Busterblade

      I’m pretty sure there’s local co-op, but not sure beyond that.

  • I think the issue with the roster is; people are complaining about Fates and Awakening now (which I get, even if it’s getting old); but even when they start announcing SD characters again, people are still going to complain. With all of the middle of the franchise left out, people’s favorites are going to be left out too (until DLC or its new edition).

    I feel it, because I really need my beefcake husband’s arms, unf (Ike will be DLC, I am 89% certain). However, I already know what they have said. And I know what the pattern was with HW, and it’s looking the same here, so I can wait.

    My problem? Musou games get boring kinda fast for me. I’m gonna enjoy it because FE, but even with LoZ, I got bored so quick. Although the writing in HW was also incredibly weak and bland, so hopefully FE:W will have that over HW. It already has more going on in gameplay, it sounds like.

    • NintendoPSXTheSecond

      I mean, FE stories aren’t exactly stellar either. Two warring countries, turns out one is being manipulated by an undead or living dragon and then the heroes fight a world ending dragon God. So if you’re going to call Zelda HW weak and bland, the very same can easily apply to FEW.

      • FE aren’t special story-wise, but Miyamoto started LoZ as a series intentionally light on the story. Aonuma changed that up and I think to nice effect, but it still doesn’t change how weak the writing in HW was. It was literally, “woman is jealous of Zelda because woman is in love with Link. Woman become evil. Evil stuff happens.” :/ Like, that is so much cliche, and not handled particularly well, either. At least when main series LoZ does cliche, they tend to do it well.

        Also not sure why you compared main series FE to the specific story of HW. But that was part of my very point that FE:W could have weak story. At the least, FE as a series tends to be and started as more story involved than LoZ; I feel like KT used the lack of story in LoZ as their back-up for HW, but since FE has more story, I hope that FE:W will be way better than HW. It sounds generic as of now, but we’ll see.

        • Busterblade

          It seems that FE:W will have a lot of emphasis on story, and I’m not sure how that will all turn out. I do now think that a good story enhances a musou greatly (after playing Fate/Extella) so it would be great if it is good.

          And yes, I definitely agree with that musou-boringness over time, but maybe they’ve found a way to shake that up a little with the class changes. Let us hope so.

  • Jay Bern

    At this point with all the neat gameplay features being announced, I honestly don’t care about the roster anymore. This is a day one buy for me. I’m a bit sad that the roster choices are so narrow, but we’re pretty much guaranteed to get other characters from the series through DLC, anyway, and you can quote me on that.

  • KnickKnackMyWack

    Don’t tell me this also won’t have online co-op. :/

    • KnightWonder

      Most Warriors games don’t.

      • KnickKnackMyWack

        A number of the recent ones do. It’s stupid that we keep having this obnoxious back-and-forth with this should-be-standard feature. And to counter boosting, let the higher level player go down to the newer player’s rank and available stages. Problem solved.

        • Busterblade

          Boosting? In a Warriors game? So you’re telling me there are people that willingly shorten their experience in said game by letting their level go far higher than it should be? Well damn, I’m going to have to take my time and be baffled by that one.

          But yes, online co-op would be great. My current whereabouts have very few local co-op available people, so that’d be awesome.

          • KnickKnackMyWack

            I don’t know if boosting was ever a thing in Warriors. That’s just my counterpoint if its their concern for online co-op. It’s a really dumb omission at this point especially since other Warriors games have had that feature. This back-and-forth really should stop. It’s like getting a new installment of Mario Kart or Smash Bros. with fewer online features.

          • Busterblade

            That kind of backwards thinking is what people associate with Nintendo though 😛

          • KnickKnackMyWack

            Well yeah, but this is Tecmo Koei. Ubisoft has pulled the same “we want people to play together” shenanigans.

          • Busterblade

            I meant more this part “It’s like getting a new installment of Mario Kart or Smash Bros. with fewer online features.”

  • KnightWonder
  • Folt

    Fire Emblem Warriors is sounding better and better with each news I get. It looks to be as rich on content as Hyrule Warriors was and I can’t wait to play it for many years to come.

  • InsertOffensiveUsernameHere

    – History Mode is separate from Story Mode
    – It retells the original story of each Fire Emblem game featured

    I’d believe you, but I remembered that it’s going to be only Shadow Dragon, Awakening and Fates characters in this game, so no.

    • Hidden Flare

      Uhh I’m confused by what you mean. What’s not to believe exactly?

      • Busterblade

        “History” as in history of the series. Basically, he’s complaining about what games are missing from the game.

        Aka same old whining.

        • Hidden Flare

          If that is so then he must of missed reading ‘featured’ fire emblem games which everyone knows by then. Just confused by what he means.
