Fire Emblem Warriors DLC announced

Posted on September 24, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in New Nintendo 3DS, News, Switch

At the Tokyo Game Show today, Koei Tecmo announced that DLC is coming to Fire Emblem Warriors. Three different packs are planned.

First, later this year, DLC based on Fire Emblem Fates will be released. Fire Emblem Shadow Dragon DLC will follow in Winter 2018 (towards the start of the new year). Finally, Fire Emblem Awakening will have DLC in Spring 2018.

All DLC will be priced at 1,400 yen. However, players will also be able to purchase all three pieces of content as a set. Doing so reduces the price from 4,200 yen to 3,000 yen, and a special bride costume for Lucina pictured above will be offered.

    Interesting. Definitely didn’t expect the DLC to focus on the main 3 exclusively. Looks like that’s how we’re getting Azura, since the guy on stage seems to have let “slip”.

    But in all honesty, I’m super excited to see what other costumes we get from these packs/in game. Beach Xander LET’S GO!!!!

    • Busterblade

      Hold steadfast, ye lonely sailor on this sea of “It isn’t good enough, where’s muh other characters?!”.

      • Vigilante_blade

        Oh yeah, remember when you claimed my problem would be fixed through DLC…? So, what now?

        • Tlink7

          Clearly this will be the only DLC we will ever receive for this game *eye-roll*

          • Vigilante_blade

            This DLC rolls well into 2018. Even if we got DLC eventually, it is far too late. Adding more 3DS FE is a kick in the balls. Even should admit that is is not very… Elegant.

            Also, unless you have proof, your input on the matter is irrelevant and it doesn’t make this situation any less frustrating.

          • Tlink7

            I have just about as proof as you do: none.

            I understand it is frustrating, but I am always hopeful. Hyrule Warriors got so much DLC and FE Warriors is being made by the same people, but this time on a console that is infinitely more popular. I am very certain that DLC won’t be all. It is rather late though, of course, if it happens

          • Icesticker

            The problem is the lateness. by the time it comes most people will have moved on to other games and forgotten about it. The new FE main game will have come out and if Warriors still has a bad taste to it by that time people will forget about it even if they announce Ike or whoever in 2019 . It will just be far too late both from a I think the skeptical fan’s pov and from a business pov. Having Ike as one of the first 3 DLC would have made them a lot of money as FeH proved. The hype for Ike is not to be underestimated.

          • cedrickterrick

            Usually you need a half year to complete a Warriors game. So where is the problem? πŸ˜‰
            I still prefer my 3DS on the go.

          • Icesticker

            I don’t know how slow you are at games but no it normally does not take half a year to beat any game. Even if it did and even if the average player at the attention span to play a single game for that long without multiplayer, half a year s not a year to a year and a half which based on the wave 1 release frames that is what you are looking at if there even is a wave 2.
            I never asked about what you liked to play on, especially if it is the ugly tiny screen of a 3ds (any version)

          • Tlink7

            I know, but there is not much we can do about it unfortunately : / Like I said, I hope there is some sort of ”suprise Ike DLC”, but only time will tell

    • Princess_Eevee9

      And don’t forget that we’re gonna get more too! Especially when they know the get all the one monies from fans.

      • Vigilante_blade

        This is too late. I am already done with this gutter trash of a game. This is what I get evangelizing this series.

  • JasonBall

    What the ****

    • Princess_Eevee9

      Don’t lose hope my friend, they did the series with Hyrule Warriors!

      • bentheblaze2390

        But then they made everyone buy a whole new game for the 3ds

        • Princess_Eevee9

          Can you not read? They’re doing the same thing from the get-go with this game, now I know we’ll be getting better DLC and not some new enhanced games one year later that should’ve been a sequel instead.

      • Fandangle

        They did the exact same thing with hyrule warriors which is what’s so suspicious about it.

  • Supporter

    I would’ve gone with three DLC packs focused on The Binding Blade/Blazing Sword, The Sacred Stones and Path of Radiance/Radiant Dawn. Hopefully missing characters like Tharja and Azura make it into these DLC packs.

    I do hope fan-favorite characters outside of Shadow Dragon, Awakening and Fates will be included like Hector and the remaining amiibo characters (ex. Alm, Ike, Roy).

    • NicknameAcaso

      Yeah, that would have been better, then again, if HW is anything to go buy, if this game sells well they could release some new dlc later on.

      • NancyRDiaz

        Google is paying 97$ per hour,with weekly payouts.You can also avail this.

      I’ll eat my non-existent hat if DLC themed around other games doesn’t make it in πŸ˜›

      • Princess_Eevee9

        Ya know what, me too! Pass the Barbecue Sauce though the massive load of salt here is preparing my food nicely.

      • Vigilante_blade

        If there is none by the end of 2018, how about changing your avatar to an FE character of my choosing for a week? I can do the same if one gets announced. No amiibo stuff. Actual DLC.

        • Tlink7

          Haha deal. I do hope there will be some sort of redemption of the game in your eyes though, FE W should be a celebration of the entire series, not just the most recent games

          • Vigilante_blade

            I think we can agree on that. I kind of hope you win this wager.

    • Princess_Eevee9

      I’m told when they were presenting this they mentioned Azura and that’s how DLC was announced for this game.

    • Vigilante_blade

      At least you got some empathy. Appreciated.

      • Supporter

        Of course. We might not agree on everything, but I consider you to be a passionate person that I’m happy to interact with. I try to be supportive and optimistic online.

        Anyway, I definitely understand where you and many others are coming from. I just hope this game isn’t a total disappointment once all the content is out.

        • Vigilante_blade

          Sadly, I’m not sure I’d even revisit it if they update the game. It left a very sour taste in my mouth.

    • Fandangle

      Yeah let’s add all those fan favorite characters as DLC and then add a bunch bunch of characters no one cares for in the base game. I sure do love it when devs release obviously half finished games and then sell half of It as DLC so they can milk it for all It’s worth.

  • James Fox

    How about a Season Pass for the UK/EU and US folk, eh?

    • Bradley

      Lol, none for you! If I remember correctly there was someone on here laughing at japan for getting something last, you should blame him for all of this. (JK obviously)

  • Vigilante_blade

    You know what? I’m done with this. Not buying. This is insulting.

    • Albel

      Yeah, I think I’m done with it too. No wonder half their team almost ran away. Way too much probably better games coming out literally the same week and before.

      • Vigilante_blade

        Yeah… Being ignored for launch is one thing. Being completely and utterly disrespected as a fan by not even getting rep is another.

        • Albel

          Indeed, the thing is, even if they came as DLC, the shelf life of these games is so short if they’re not in for the first playthrough it’s just not the same.

          But no Roy/Ike all over the marketing for this game really was insane from the start.

          • Dragonage2ftw

            Roy and Ike aren’t as popularity as the Awakening/Fates crew.

          • sid

            Ok where did you pull that lie from?

            https://events.fire-emblem-heroes.com/vote/result

            Ike and Roy were voted as two of the most popular characters. Ike also won a voting gauntlet against the other top 7 voted characters in Fire emblem heroes.

          • Tlink7

            He should have said ”Roy and Ike’s games”, because that would be true. They’re also pretty old games, Nintendo is still selling Awakening and Fates πŸ˜›

          • sid

            True in a way. Though I bet a re-release of Path of radiance on Switch eshop would sell very well.

          • Tlink7

            That would be sweet, because I am quite interested in the older FE titles

          • Dragonage2ftw

            That poll is a load of hogwash.

            Like most polls.

          • sid

            Was backed up by fire emblem heroes and has more credibility than your random lie with nothing to back up your statement.

          • Vigilante_blade

            Winners don’t do drugs.

          • Dragonage2ftw

            Oh, is that why you never win?

          • Vigilante_blade

            I don’t even drink or smoke, so I win a lot.

          • Supporter

            Nice! Same here.

    • Dragonage2ftw

      ITT: Not getting the character you want is an insult.

      Your skin is thinner than paper.

      • Vigilante_blade

        I am sorry, where were you when we old fans were keeping this series alive?

        • 00TWB00 .

          Awakening was suppose to be the last game. It sold well, so now they can keep the series alive and going. The new fans helped FE stay alive, so you shouldn’t be surprised by any of this

        • Tlink7

          You weren’t keeping it alive. Awakening was going to be the last game.

          • Vigilante_blade

            The series would have died way before Awakening became a thing. Your favourite game exists because of us keeping this series alive until they learned proper narketing. You may thank us now.

          • SpectralDynamite

            If it was on the brink of death, you guys weren’t very good at your jobs, were you?

          • Vigilante_blade

            Because you guys didn’t bother with it. Also, marketing saved the franchise.

          • Tlink7

            My point being that no one group made the series what it is today. The Melee crowd brought FE to the West, you guys kept it going and then the newer fans increased its popularity. We all like the same series, this infighting is so stupid. So no, I will not thank you πŸ˜‰

          • Vigilante_blade

            Thus infighting is indeed stupid. Hence why sime newer fans need to stoo being elitists about it.

          • Busterblade

            He wasn’t keeping it alive, and he’ll sure do his best to break it down even now, if it can’t be what he wants it to be.

        • So alive that awakening had to save the franchise.

          • Vigilante_blade

            “Marketing” get it right.

          • Awakening’s marketing, get it right.

          • Vigilante_blade

            So, marketing.

          • Yours is the best logic ever. Still doesn’t change the fact that the other games couldn’t even do that right.

      • Fandangle

        Not getting popular characters everyone wants. But I’m sure you’re happy with the low tier trash we got. I’m sure you love having Lightning shoved into every Final Fantasy game as well.

        • Dragonage2ftw

          Holy strawmen, Batman!

          Lightning isn’t popular. The characters in this game are.

          There’s no characters that “everyone wants”, lad.

          • Fandangle

            Those aren’t strawmen first off, secondly I literally made the same argument you did, Thirdly none of the characters they added were particularly popular besides Chrom, Lucina, the two MUs, Marx, and Ryoma.

            They didn’t include the incredibly popular Tharja, Owain, Olivia, or Inigo from Awakening, and the didn’t include Azura, either of the maids, or the butler from Fates. More than likely because they were saving the more popular characters from those games so they could nickel and dime people into buying them.

            They also didn’t include Ike (Most popular character in the entire fluffin series, amassing the most votes in the Heroes character poll between his two incarnations) more than likely because again, they wanted to nickel and dime people.

            Intentionally or not, their roster is absolutely awful and they’re no doubt going to put the characters that fans actually want as DLC so now you have to pay 60 bucks for the base game and then pay 40 on top of that for the characters fans actually want.

          • Dragonage2ftw

            No, you made strawman arguments.

            Secondly, you’re way off. They already confirmed there are secret characters in the game, so you don’t know if Tharja didn’t make it in.

            Secondly, thinking that any of the retainers from fates other than Oboro is popular, or thinking that Olivia is popular, really shows how out of touch you are.

            Heroes poll means nothing.

            Claiming they did this “to nickle and dime” is stupid.

          • Fandangle

            you made strawman arguments.

            I didn’t though. Please point them out because I’m pretty sure you just don’t know what a strawman is.

            They already confirmed there are secret characters in the game, so you don’t know if Tharja didn’t make it in.

            where? I’ve been following this game pretty closely and I haven’t seen anything but I’m willing to admit I might’ve missed something.

            Secondly, thinking that any of the retainers from fates other than Oboro is popular, or thinking that Olivia is popular, really shows how out of touch you are.

            I’m actually not sure of olivia’s placement on character polls but I remember her being talked about a lot around release. I’ll concede her otherwise. I also didn’t mention any retainers unless you think Owain and Inigo count. Fun fact: the entire reason they got into fates as retainers because they were the most popular children characters from awakening. The same reason tharja got in as well. But hey they’re not including any of those popular characters. Just waifu bait and characters no one cares for like literally half the cast of fates.

            I like how you’re trying to make me seem like the one out of touch though. Let’s totally ignore the obvious waifu pandering bull like Cordelia, wedding gowns, and not including actually popular male characters from under represented parts of the franchise. Instead we get C tier characters like Fredrick, lissa, Leon, and the two healers from fates who magically aren’t healers
            anymore. If they wanted an axe and a bow user they could’ve added Hector and Alm. If they wanted a Pegasus unit their is literally any of the white wings. The excuses they gave were just bad and I can honestly seewhy some of the devs threatened to leave over this poor excuse of a cast.

            And honestly, no need to be so snide.

          • Dragonage2ftw

            1. Owain and Niles are in the game as secret characters. Lol.

            2. Felicia and Jacob are classified as Corrin’s retainers.

            3. Cordelia is one of the most popular females in Awakening. She’s just under Tharja and Lucina. Leo is one of the most popular Fates characters, and they added in Elise and Sakura because they needed more healers. And yes, they can heal.

            Fredrick and Lissa are in because they’re important to early-Awakening’s plot. Which is where the Shepards were pulled from in their timeline for the crossover.

          • Fandangle

            1. Owain and Niles are in the game as secret characters. Lol.

            Are you really that dense in that you can’t take an obvious attempt at goodwill and just present your evidence. I literally said “I’d be willing to retract the statement if you can show me proof” and all you offer me is an “lol”. I can only assume you’re some kind of mentally challenged.

            2. Felicia and Jacob are classified as Corrin’s retainers.

            They’re a maid and a butler. They’re also infinitely more interesting than the entire Hoshido family combined.

            Cordelia is one of the most popular females in Awakening. She’s just under Tharja and Lucina

            That was my point. She’s under tharja.

            Leo is one of the most popular Fates characters,

            Which goes to show the tastes of the Fates fanboys. But that snide comment aside, he’s still not top five, meanwhile the top five is Ike, Roy, Hector, Chrom, and Ike again because he placed twice and amassed more votes combined than any other character.

            and they added in Elise
            and Sakura because they needed more healers. And yes, they can heal

            They added them because fanservice and sorry excuses. Warriors games don’t need healers, in fact HW actively punished you on some levels for healing because you need to genuinely be incredibly bad at it in order to heal. The character archetypes are COMPLETELY unnecessary in a warriors game and I’m pretty sure they only added them because “hurr durr all fates siblings!”.

            As for Lissa and Fredrick, that’s still a very sorry excuse “they’re important early” they’re really not. Fredrick literally loses all relevance after the tutorial and Lissa never had any relevance. Again, this is a pretty sorry excuse considering they forewent more popular and more OBVIOUS choices for two characters no one likes. At least add a useful unit like Stahl and not Fredrick, “I’m completely useless after Chapter 3” the yaoi bait.

            It’s a crossover game, the plot is completely irrelevant to the actual game. It’s also the easiest, dumbest, simplest plot they could have thought of, it’s literally just Heroes’ plot all over again because Heroes is the simplest, dumbest, easiest plot they could think of for a crossover game. Plot isn’t an excuse for bad roster choices.

            1. https://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/204209-fire-emblem-warriors/75815414

            Oboro is also named in the strategy guide. As is Gharnef.

            2. I don’t even know what point you’re trying to make with that whole “Felicia and Jakob are a maid and a butler” thing.

            They’re retainers, lad.

            3. And? Is there any law that says that they had to pick the top 3 characters of any given game?

            4. Stop using that asinine Heroes poll. It WASN’T AVAILABLE when the game was being made. It’s also inaccurate. They used popularity polls for Awakening, Fates, and Shadow Dragon to make the roster.

            5. Too bad. This isn’t like other Warriors games. Also, assuming that little girls are fanservice says some really creepy stuff about you.

            6. Fredrick is useful throughout the first half off Awakening. Also, Stahl isn’t as popular as Fredrick.

            You should think before posting. It’ll save ya the embarrassment.

          • Fandangle

            Oboro is also named in the strategy guide. As is Gharnef.

            I thought you were going to show me gameplay. I’ve repeated this point a thousand times at this point but I will again for you. Unless they actually appear in combat on your side then they’re more than likely not playable. I’m scanning the footage points but I’m not seeing a single part where they’re actually playable. Owain doesn’t even appear at the “you can now play as” prompts at the end of the map he appears at. He’s more than likely not playable and just appears. This is fairly uncommon but not unheard of for Warriors games. They’re usually characters they add in the sequels or updated rerelease or DLC later one, meaning you’ll probably have to pay extra for them. Best you can hope for is they do a free update like HW did to make Cia, Volga, and Wizzro playable.

            I don’t even know what point you’re trying to make with that whole “Felicia and Jakob are a maid and a butler” thing.

            I’m sorry my point was too complex, I’ll dumb it down a lil for you.

            Did you know that Anna is a merchant?

            Is there any law

            There isn’t. Your point? There is no law preventing a company from making a steaming crap heap, however that doesn’t stop it from being a steaming crap heap.

            t WASN’T AVAILABLE when the game was being made. It’s also inaccurate.

            I literally adressed this exact point. Stop being “asinine” and address my points.

            They used popularity polls for Awakening, Fates, and Shadow Dragon to make the roster.

            There is a thousand and one problems with this. #1 being 13 and 14 are terrible games and their only claim to success is being the most casual. Shadow Dragon isn’t nearly as revered as 3, 4, or 5, in japan and not even CLOSE to being as revered as 9/10 or 7 in the west.

            This isn’t like other Warriors games. Also, assuming that little girls are fanservice say some really creepy stuff about you.

            Except it’s exactly like every other Warriors game I’ve played. I quite like the genre and the series. but you’re just being an idiot if you claim that FEW adds anything significant enough to warrant a purchase over WoO3 which is also coming out on Switch or DW9 which actually supposed to change the map structure of the game.

            Also, nice ad hominem at the end there. Good to know you only played the american version of the game and don’t know about half the stuff they cut out of the game. Did you know they aged up the blonde one? I can’t even remember her name because she was so forgettable, she was originally like 16 or something like that, able to get married and have children with, and they originally had a petting mini game where you could touch her too. Now stop spewing insults and address my points.

            Fredrick is useful throughout the first half off Awakening. Also, Stahl isn’t as popular as Fredrick.

            No he isn’t. It is highly recomended that you dump him IMMEDIATELY because he literally does nothing but steal EXP from your other units. Of course we’re talking about awakening here and I assume you played on easy/casual mode where you could grind endlessly. Fredrick is easily the worst unit in the entire game, he just has bad growths.

            As for the popularity, source? I’ve seen more Stahl love so I’m mostly going by personal experience here. Neither are NEARLY as popular as other males in the same game though. That shouldn’t matter however either because choosing a cast based on popularity gives you waifu crap like this.

    • Tlink7

      Kudos to you if you actually stick by your word. We’ll see πŸ˜›

      • Vigilante_blade

        Unless something changes, I am always a man of my words.

    • hi v3.0

      At this point I don’t blame you tbh

    • Aline Piroutek

      I don’t like the “Warriors” series, do you like it?

      • Vigilante_blade

        I love the core loop of a Warriors game, but I just can’t live with an FE Warriors game that ignores almost all of what I believe to ve the best games in the series.

  • NicknameAcaso

    I hope the DLC is about the main antagonists or something like that.
    30 bucks ain’t no price to pay to play with Fates endless stream of attendants.

    • JaidynReiman

      Its actually more around $25. The DLC for Hyrule Warriors Legends (Wii U + 3DS Season Pass) was about 2,600 yen or so, which ended up being $20. A direct translation is around $24. A direct translation of 3,000 yen is around $26.

      • NicknameAcaso

        Price conversion unluckily for us westerners ain’t so forgiving.
        If I remember correctly, the Switch launch price in japan was far lower compared to US and Europe.

        • Princess_Eevee9

          Europeans got it cheaper then we did as well, actually some store is even selling it mad cheap because they incorrectly guessed the price and honored their pre-orders enough to keep selling it like 100$ off.

          • NicknameAcaso

            Not really. Aside from a limited amount of consoles that could have been bought at a lower price (and its not like only EU retailers got the price wrong) as of now the Switch is still officially priced 330€ in most EU countries.
            That being said, 330€ is almost 400$, in the US the taxless price is 300$, right? Even when counting taxes it’s far lower than what we pay.

          • Princess_Eevee9

            Ooo hmm sorry then I thought I read that they just let it stay. It’s 300$ here yeah.

    • Fandangle

      You mean like the free DLC they released for HW?

      • NicknameAcaso

        Dunno.
        Back then they expected somewhat lukewarm sales for HW, given WiiU crappy situation and DW not being that big on Nintendo consoles in the first place. But the game succeded.
        So this time around I don’t think they will go out of their way to push sales with free stuff.

        • Fandangle

          So you’re telling me they could release it for free but they won’t because they think more people will buy it and they want to milk then for all they’re worth?

  • Bart

    Does this mean I will have to wait until spring 2018 for Tharja? πŸ™

    • Alone1sAgain

      She’ll probably never come, unfortunately. They cater more towards sword-wielding characters than anything, at it seems we’re only getting ridiculous weeb-induced waifu crap like… I dunno, putting Lucina in a freaking wedding gown.

    • Vigilante_blade

      Are you actually complaining when your games dominate yhe cast…? I guess the rich can never be truly satisfied.

      • Velen (Not WoW)

        I know you’re angry cause the DLC packs only focus on Awakening, Fates and Shadow Dragon (I’m not very happy with it myself), though how about you stop being a complete d***?

    • Princess_Eevee9

      Don’t lose hope my friend!

      • Bart

        Yeah, kinda hoping she might be a secret unlockable character or something. πŸ™‚

        If that’s even I thing in this type of game, I wouldn’t know, I already find it strange they’re revealing so many characters in advance, I just hope there’s still some surprises left by the time I can actually start playing…

        • Princess_Eevee9

          Hehehe should’ve been there for Hyrule Warriors! Unfortunately they do not have unlockables far as I know but my women’s intuition is saying do not lose hope! Tharja might be in already, she’s Fire Emblem Fates version of Princess Camilla after all. Popularity I’m mean mentioning their popularity.

  • ben

    Waifu dlc… not even hiding it… I will probably buy the season pass… I am just dumb enough.

    • Princess_Eevee9

      Buy the Season Pass, stay for the surprise reveals that GBA Fire Emblem is inbound along with GameCube.

      • Vigilante_blade

        I will not buy a season pass “just in case”

  • ben

    Didn’t hyrule warriors follow the same pattern? All the DLC was Twilight princess, Skyward sword and Ocarina of time. The later moved on to other games.

    • MagcargoMan

      There was no Skyward Sword or Ocarina of Time DLC.

      • ronin4life

        hyrule warriors started with fewer characters and features than FEW, and added many in for free focusing on those three titles (TP being the third) . DLC focused on these three titles at first as well and later expanded, paticularly after Legends.

        *This is how KT always does this, even for their strategy titles*. And despite the titles focus on these characters they are all still rife with characters to utilise, especially shadow dragon. It was always obvious they would start here.

        Hopefully they add in loads of characters this way. All the retainers, the majority of the shepherds and as many shadow dragon/shadow of valencia nobles as possible. Just tossing us The bad guys from these titles like HW started out doing would be pretty annoying.

        • Velen (Not WoW)

          What I’m more concerned with is a wider representation of the series. Even though they didn’t cover literally every title in the Zelda series, they did a pretty dang good spread.

          Here it feels like they’re circling the wagons and buckling down instead of exploring the vast wilderness of characters that could be interesting picks for playables.

          In other words, they’re trying to play it safe.

          • ronin4life

            Zelda didn’t have hundreds of characters to pull from, making representation difficult in the exact opposite way as with FE (who do they add from such limited potential, as opposed to which ones do we NOT add from such a large pool). And as much as diehards will get dissappinted Fates and Awakening are both still well liked across the spectrum of possible FE fans.
            Fates needs at least some of the retainers and Aqua. Awakening included Cordelia but left out Tharja (ew), Sayri and Basilio/Flavia and all the Shepherds. Shadow Dragon has almost no representation, and put in Gaiden’s Celica with no Alm.

            There is So much to mine for with just the 2 newest games, let alone the first 2 titles in the series, *let alone* other fan favorites inbetween, *LET ALONE* the upcoming Switch title. I dream the roster will have dozens of characters by the time they finish supporting it but that probably isn’t realistic. What I do know is these hills are much richer in gold than Hyrule was and KT is most likely going to methodically mine every bit of it as carefully as they can manage without causing a cavein.

          • Velen (Not WoW)

            It wouldn’t make sense to bring in any characters from the Fire Emblem Switch title when we have no concrete news or details about it.

            My point with Hyrule Warriors was, even though they didn’t have a literal countries worth of characters to choose from, they still in the end chose a wide spread.

            They could’ve done the same with the DLC here with FE Warriors, and started throwing the older fans a bone.

            Ike and Roy would’ve been especially welcome given their meme status, along with Lyn who’s already in.

            Hell, they could’ve brought some of the Laguz from Ike’s game into things for an interesting moveset, or even brought in a certain Taguel…

            They’re squandering all their opportunities and playing it super safe.

        • MagcargoMan

          There was no Skyward Sword or Ocarina of Time DLC dude. The four DLC packs for the Wii U version were the Master Quest pack, Twilight Princess pack, Majora’s Mask pack and Boss pack. Of the three games represented in the vanilla roster only Twilight Princess got a new character through DLC.

          • ronin4life

            Before paid Dlc rolled out the base game and its free upgrades focused on those three titles. Later DLC slowly introduced other titles until Legends, and more titles came after this

            What’s more, The main game plus this free dlc was still overall less content than FEW will have at launch.

          • MagcargoMan

            Wrong, there is no Skyward Sword or Ocarina of Time DLC outside of the costumes for Link, Zelda and Ganondorf. Only TP got new characters, weapons for already playable ones and an Adventure Mode map out of the three.

      • ben

        So it was just Twilight princess? I remember that we didn’t get Majora and windwaker until year 2.

        • MagcargoMan

          Yes it was just Twilight Princess. And no, Majora’s Mask was year 1.

    • ronin4life

      This was always how I expected it honestly.
      Not sure why this is as shocking and upsetting to people as it is.

      • It’s kinda like people are new to KT and Musou games somehow? I understand being upset or frustrated, but some people are acting like they don’t know how KT rolls or never heard before.

        • Velen (Not WoW)

          To be fair. Most people probably don’t know of Musou games at large or have played them. In fact. Hyrule Warriors was the first Musou game I ever owned.

          • I suppose. It just seems weird to me that people on gaming sites can be so unfamiliar with how a fairly renowned but infamous gaming company works.

  • Fandangle

    DROPPED HARDER THAN A TRICK OR TREAT BAG FULL OF ROCKS.

    • Dragonage2ftw

      Oh, please.

      Like you buy games.

      • Fandangle

        I do. I actually bought Metroid Samus Return to support 2D Metroids and Fire Emblem SoV to support more classic styled FE games. Before that I bought Divinity Original Sin 2 and Ys 7 because they’re both games I love and really want to play.

        At least Falcom and Larian know how to treat a series with respect.

  • Ryan Hainley

    Time to grab some popcorn and watch the incoming rage-storm from afar.

    I’m completely content with this though, can’t wait to see what it will include.

  • James Fox

    The entitlement i see before me reminds me of this

    • Velen (Not WoW)

      I’m fine with the base game, but I’m utterly disappointed in their choice of DLC matter.

      They could’ve expanded the game representation with the DLC to make more people happy, but instead they’re catering purely to the fans of the 3 games presented.

      So honestly, at this point it’s less about entitlement and more about genuine frustration, and I fully understand it.

      • Princess_Eevee9

        Just a reminder, Hyrule Warriors did Villains DLC/Season Pass Cia, Volga, and Wizzro followed by DLC packs heavily focusing on the Twilight Princess(Twili Midna), and then new weapon and Costumes until they gave us Ganondorf then Tingle and Young Link. Then Hyrule Warriors Legends got announced and they doubled the cast. No Legends version should happen so this is actually following a pattern they’re gonna support the game a full year and we shall see the rest of the crews, promise. ☺️ Also don’t count out anymore surprise reveals in the Base Game until it’s out in Japan either!

  • MagcargoMan

    >bride Lucina
    I see the waifu-pandering never ends…

  • Princess_Eevee9

    Expected but Hyrule Warriors & Hyrule Warriors Legends completely blewy complaints outta the water with the DLC. I wish we could have them all base game base pricing but they’re being reasonable with it all and more meaningful content the better! I will acknowledge disappointment of fans, but let’s actually wait until all is said and done please.

  • bdp

    Welp guess i’m never touching this game then.

  • bentheblaze2390

    Look, I get that they didn’t have the likes of the choose your legends poll when they were making the base game, but they have it now, and they’re still handing us this garbage. Can they not see who the top 3 male characters were? Add them and you satisfy a lot of the community. Instead we get waifu pandering… Jesus I’m done with this game

  • Andrew Keeler

    god mostly i see down in the comments is entitlement by older fans of the series if anybody remembers that HW DLC was not even that big to start with mostly forced on OOT and TP sure there was the MM but that is still 2 of the three games already forced on in game they are doing the same thing here.

    • Dylan W

      Did you forget the HW DLC that included characters from Wind Waker, Link’s Awakening, A Link Between Worlds, and even a brand new character (Linkle)?

      • Princess_Eevee9

        Hm? Fi and Ghirahim were base game Hyrule Warriors as I mained them both. Also you’re talking about Hyrule Warriors Legends, Andrew is talking about Wii U Hyrule Warriors. Get your facts right before blazing retorts out like this. Also Linkle wasn’t an update she was Main character that was added along with Tetra, Skull Kid, King Daphnes, Toon Link, and Meldi!!

        • Dylan W

          I didn’t say that Fi and Ghirahim were DLC characters. I was just pointing out that there were more than just OoT, TP, and MM characters in Hyrule Warriors. Also, you do realize that the characters from Hyrule Warriors Legends are also available to purchase on the Wii U version, right?

    • MagcargoMan

      Calling out the Fates/Awakening shilling in the DLC when the base roster is already majority Fates/Awakening and wanting other games in the series to actually be acknowledged is “entitlement” now? Okay…

    • Vigilante_blade

      Can we stop calling legitimate complaints “entitlement”?. You would be pissed if they completely skipped over Awakening. The only reason you can act so smug is because your needs more met. Try some empathy.

  • Jay Bern

    I was one of those folks who said we were going to get characters from other games through DLC, so…yeah. I admit my mistake and I apologize to everyone.

    I mean, I’m still getting the game because I’m honestly a bigger fan of Warriors than I am of Fire Emblem, but come on, Koei. Seriously? At least give us another pack from Path of Radiance or something.

    • Vigilante_blade

      Thanks. I appreciate the humility.

      • JasonBall

        I admit the same. I was positive other games would be in dlc.

        • Vigilante_blade

          No worries. I still like ya.

    • Addy

      A year-and-a-half from now, they’ll likely announce a Legends or whatever they call updated version of last year’s game.

      • Jay Bern

        Knowing Koei? Yeah, almost certainly.

    • I would like to join us to my Discord server Jay! You seems a talkative person who will fit perfectly to our endless chat about games to debating, changing ideas about gaming industry, hope see you there in our community moslty NE users, the link is on my profile if you are instrested to join us.

  • Hidden Flare

    Whew… Ain’t this interesting. So we do get more DLC on the main three games and a special Lucina costume. I think we will get more costumes but Lucina is probably more different then others. Now as for me… I get the sad vibe this was planned, like instead of adding all the characters they gave a decent portion and are making some behind a paywall. With that in mind… I’m going to be careful about buying it. They will need specifically characters I want. Yes I’m still buying the game cause I’m excited for it…

    But please hear out the people against this cause for once it feels like a good reason to me. They really could of won them over or just announced that a few fan favorites make it in yet they gets didn’t. They really did avoid a better option. Maybe they will cave in and add a few characters or maybe they are there but right now we aren’t seeing that.

    I hope we sell enough for a sequel, where they hopefully add the fan favorites for you guys. I’ll see ya then.

    • Vigilante_blade

      Yeah… I would not have been happy with just a few reps, but I would have taken it.

    • ronin4life

      This has been Koei Tecmo’s MO for decades. Anyone who didn’t already know this was coming doesn’t know Japanese gaming too well.

    • Princess_Eevee9

      Not when the majority of these people are acting like this is the biggest gaming betrayal of all time no. These people are annoying and I’ll have no sympathy for them while I patiently await Ike, Mist, Eikira, Ephraim, and Hector. And I guess other fans are completely conveniently forgetting that Lyn and Celica are in the games I’ll be hard-pressed to think that Koei Tecmo wouldn’t include their important friends from the game.

      • Vigilante_blade

        Two characters. Gee, thanks.

  • Vigilante_blade

    Go and report me then. However, threats don’t really make you look good. And unlessmyou played any of the classic games, you don’t make me “stop complaining”. If there is anything I don’t condone, it is people who cannot tolerate criticism of a gaming company.

    • Gigalomaniac

      I guess I’m just different in that I see this game as just some extra spinoff that really doesn’t “matter” that much in regards to the series itself. Yeah, it doesn’t have characters I want but I’m happy to be able to use characters from the series in a game allowing for free movement. I think it’s a pleasant change of pace but I’m really more concerned about the next mainline game being good. I don’t think this is making excuses (maybe it is) but it’s not like this game HAD to happen. I do understand the sentiments of those who played the other games and have favorites in relation to that. But there are people who haven’t played those games and enjoy the new ones a lot.

      • Semi Colon Parenthesis

        Disclaimer: First game was Awakening (technically FE7 for 10 minutes)

        I’m roughly in the same boat as you, but a lot of older fans really feel neglected. It also seems (going off the always toxic comment sections of anywhere) newer fans dismiss any legit criticism as “elitists being babies”. Which is far from the truth. While I agree not everyone knows who the characters are (I’m the only person in my group of friends who has played more than just 13 and 14), this game was, honestly, slightly hyped up and expected to be the crossover fans have dreamed of. Especially for “meme” characters like Ike and Roy, who even newer fans know. Hopefully, closing the divide even a little. Heroes has kinda did that from what I see. But of course Warriors mainly caters to Awakening/Fates fans, giving some fans a sense of “the other games don’t matter”.

        Where most of the rage comes from, from the more resonable part of the angry fans, is the “too many swords” and “love letter to fans” statement.

        • Vigilante_blade

          Well said. I think some new game rep is inevitable. However, I feel it would have been more tasteful and better for the sales and fans as a whole to have more variety.

        • While there are fans of the newer games that call old game hardcore people elitist, I think most of those people are also fans of the older games. And there are plenty of fans of the older games that love the newer games.

          If anything, I think the FE (Western) fandom is finally hitting that point of in-fighting where the newer side has accepted the quality of their games but other older fans are also calling out the quality of the older games; and with titles like FE:W coming, both sides are kind of getting heated. Everyone is starting to question and bicker how relevant or good each gen and title is, but I think the fandom kind of needed this. For a while, things were slanted way too one direction at a time. And maybe it’s different on FE dedicated sites, but this is pretty new for wider gaming sites.

          Some of the older fans are kind of entitled and elitist, but I get why to an extent. But they’re also going to have to properly accept (eventually) that Awakening did save the series (and Fates has carried that); and their usual excuses don’t hold up in the face of that.

          • Vigilante_blade

            100% of people who called me an elitist over liking an older FE games started with Awakening or Fates (that I know of). I am just sick and tired of “liking old game = elitist” arguments. This is bull and you know it. I see far more newer fans looking down on us by calling us names than the reverse, which is a form of elitism in end of itself. This is Smash all over again.

          • You say that as though some of those people only like Awakening/Fates and don’t enjoy the older games though too.

            It does suck that it’s used often, but it’s not always untrue.

            I’d say it’s about equal anymore, but I don’t know how many sites you’re on (not just gaming sites) and what you’re seeing.

          • Vigilante_blade

            I frequent Fire Emblem sub-reddits, Serenes Forest, Mangs Discord, Mangs nd Ghast Station’s channels based mostly off FE games, and various news outlets. What I regularily see are old fans showing dissapointement in something, a new fan berating them like asking if they “want to cry” or calling them an elitist, then the classic fan tries to explain his stance and gets called an elitist.

            While there are uncivilzed people on both sides, it is clearly a Smash case where insecure youths go “your time is up, losers, we are new fanbase now. Just be thankful you got your Lyn”.

        • Icesticker

          I quite agree. I am an old school Fe palyer, been playing these games since they started coming over, the Tellius games are probably my most played games ever. I honestly would not mind the huge focus on the new games if they had just given some love to the older games as well. Characters like Ephiram and Hector would have gone a lone way to balancing the sword heavy roster and would have shown love to the old school games. Having the DLC be focused on these games would have been the smart move both from a fan appreciation pov and from a business pov. If the FeH poll back in January is any indication Ike is literally the most popular character in the franchise and the hype his introduction into that game was insane. If there had been a Tellius DLC in this first wave it would have brought in a lot of extra money for the game, but if it is in the second wave a think a lot of those bitter old guard fans won’t care by that point and many of the new game fans who like Ike from Smash won’t either because FE switch will already be out.

          This really was a chance to make up for the disaster that was Tokyo Mirage and I think most importantly this game represented a chance for the old characters to get representation (upgraded art and designs) in the modern era of gaming and for these old characters to interact with new ones. Instead of having an array of characters from an array of games coming together to interact in a way we’ve never seen in FE before we will just get Fates and Awakening characters interacting and while that is still cool it is not nearly as cool as if we could have had Ike and Hector meet or Chrom and Ephiram or Lucina and Eirika.

  • AquaBat

    This is so bad it makes Marvel vs Capcom Infinite look like a justifiable purchase.

    • TDude73

      Chun-Li’s mini brow is more hideous than judging this game on purpose.

    • Princess_Eevee9

      Hey #2 it’s nice to know your opinions align with your position in everybody eyes. Wait are we not saying retarded things right now? Maybe you should get rid of your comment then, as it’s so hilarious I can’t stop laughing. You work for Capcom or something?

      • JasonBall

        So glad you’re hanging out here.

        • Princess_Eevee9

          Actually went to go play Mario Kart and a Stream, but then came back cause I wanted news. You know you’re not helping either and I expected more from you. You’re one of this sites more level-headed thinkers and your dangerously sinking into these others territory. It’s super easy to focus on the negative then see the positive but we gotta.

          • JasonBall

            I appreciate your recognition of my usual calmness. That being said, I think your comments on this page are quite toxic.

            Also, I think this choice of dlc is stupid. The fact I think it’s stupid doesn’t make me “sink into territory” of other hotheads. One can call something stupid intelligently. So I will not take back what I said because I in no way am obligated to adhere to some mental picture you have of me. If your liking of me goes down simply because I say this dlc is stupid, then I really don’t want you to like me in the first place. It’s a silly thing to argue about and judge others on.

          • Vigilante_blade

            Agreed. I think some forget that it is possible to be critical, or even annoyed and angry while thinking logically.

            I think it is dangerous for people to go into fanatical positivity as Evee seems to imply. In a sense, attempting to “enforce” positivity and making threats to report people because they disagree with a character roster in a video game is actually making things more negative for those people legitimate criticism.

            When people are dissapointed, they don’t need people to call them stupid for it.

            I have often disagreed with you on things, but what I appreciate about you is that sometimes you have positive outlooks. Sometimes not. You are genuine, and that is fine. I can respect that

          • JasonBall

            It’s better to be negative but rational about it than positive but irrational about it, like Evee. Yeah?

          • Vigilante_blade

            Essentially, but I think it is actually healthy to be a bit of both. No one should hate everything, but no one should love everything unconditionally either.

          • JasonBall

            Of course

      • AquaBat

        Literally what are you even saying

        • JasonBall

          I ask that about most of this persons comments.

    • ronin4life

      Pfff…

      Naw. Nonono. I rented that game and it was garbage.

      • Bap

        Well thats a lie.

  • Dunnington

    So instead of adding characters from the wide backlog of classic FE games, let’s add a waifu based clone of a clone of Marth. Great idea, guys. /s

    • Princess_Eevee9

      Guess we just completely missed the part where that’s a Alternative Costume and not a new character add-in like Cat Mario/Peach Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. You and the other two morons, learn to read.

      • Dunnington

        “let’s add [a waifu based alternate costume for the] clone of Marth” instead of adding characters from the wide backlog of classic FE games.

        Happy?

  • Symbol de Au

    “go away or I will report you,”

    What a baby.

    • Vigilante_blade

      Indeed… Well, this is an issue with a subset of the Nintendo community.

      • That’s any community. No community is special. Any and every community has rational people, impatient people, etc.

        Singling out communities when it comes to behavior is what plays into console wars.

        • Vigilante_blade

          Though I observe it from within. Nintendo’s are civil wars. This is infighting because new fans keep trying to treat classic fans as invalid.

          • And it doesn’t happen in the reverse? I distinctly remember when Fates was announced how some of the older fans were trashing it and newer fans. It definitely goes both ways.

            If you can only it see it from one side, you should start examining yourself more as well and ask yourself if you have bias. Figuring it out won’t happen overnight, but you’ll start to see it more. I don’t have that with FE, but I have had that with other series. (And it’s perfectly natural/common, even if it isn’t right.)

          • Vigilante_blade

            We actually gave Fates a decent chance. The story is undeniably very bad. Just because you trash a game doesn’ tmean youa re bieng a jerk about it.

          • And I was specifically talking about before it even released. There was no reason to be trashing it or attacking it (or interested parties) before it released.

            You had to shift what my point was to try and justify the fact that bad behavior comes from both sides.

          • Busterblade

            I duly hope that new people that might be intrigued by FE:W stay the hell away from forums and other FE related sites.

            I feel genuine regret and urge to just drop the series whenever I go through a comment section like this.

          • This is really every side of the fandom just gnawing at each other. And really, for no reason. None of us actually have control over what’s in the game. People should be flooding KT’s contact and social media. :/

          • Busterblade

            Exactly, none of us have any influence over this. I would’ve liked to have seen them not hold the relation part so strongly, so that they can make it a game with every special character in it, but nobody has a say in any of this, and gathering a large enough party, with how both sides are whining at eachother, is impossible.

            So it’s best that one just accepts the way it is, and hope that the sequel they mentioned comes to pass, and has those games in it. That Lyn and Celica are in at all, considering those interviews and such, is amazing by itself! But that isn’t what people speak of, no, they are annoyed at what ISN’T there.

            But what use will flooding social media and contact have? People flood Capcom for MH XX, and look how little shts they give….

          • I mean, the other thing is; even fans of the newer games aren’t 100% happy with the roster. And I saw Vigilante insult/lightweight attack someone over that. That’s sad. That’s what this has reduced to.

            I think it has also come down to a matter of favs. They’re covering some obvious bases with this game, but there is a lot left to be desired (for me anyway, but clearly plenty of others). But a lot of people are really upset that their fave didn’t make it in. Which is fine, but taking it out on other fans is not the way.

            Hah. Capcom has been crap and been passing up on localizations since the PS3. KT has too, but KT has a slightly better record for obscure localizations. (Although I’m still mad about no Ruby Party games coming. . .)

            The game is done, so nothing is going to change, but it’s good to let them know anyway about disappointment and changes we hope to see later and going forward.

          • Busterblade

            Think about it, even Nintendo keeps the older games hard to get and obscure. I can’t get a physical copy (which I very much prefer) of an older FE game on my 3DS/Switch, and I’d have to pay through the nose for one on an older system.

            Nintendo could’ve released a collection, they could’ve done more than just Echoes to bring attention back to the series, but that haven’t, thus giving me the idea that they want to keep the older series as a close, perhaps that they’ve done their part and leave it at that. This is something people tend to overlook. New fans can’t even get to grips with these characters in their respective games! So how are they expected to know them/like them in the same regard? I’ve red through plenty of the older games on the Wiki, and I’ve no problem with any of the older characters myself, but obviously I don’t have the same connection as I do the newer ones, since I got to experience their story.

          • This is unfortunately a problem with a number of things when it comes to Nintendo. Something I hope they’ll remedy this gen. (They’re kind of getting there, but I’m still miffed at the lack of love for their niche titles.)

            I think it also comes down to what IS themselves want more than Nintendo. I do hope they’re encouraged to do a collection or something, and for more remakes, but I think IS also has a habit of making their game, tossing it out there and then just chugging along.

          • Busterblade

            It’s hard to say what IS themselves want at this point. But whatever it is, the majority seem intent on simply enjoying what news comes out, and bless their hearts, may they continue unabated by the gnawing at one another that happens in places like these.

          • Yeah, I just hope people get to enjoy this game. I mean, it does have its problems in how they announced things and I would have made some different decision; but hey, it’s not like this is MvCI or SFV.

          • Aiddon

            I wouldn’t mind the older fans so much if their comments weren’t laced with uncomfortable, xenophobic undercurrents all the time. At this point I think we’ve reached the unfortunate conclusion: time to just make a mass pruning of the more venomous parts of the fanbase and move on.

          • You hit another nail on the head. It’s rather gross, and I’ve noticed that trend. If some of them stopped just short with their complaints and wouldn’t start leaking into into the xenophobia, I wouldn’t think *quite* as badly of them as I do.

            Heck, the “waifu” comments here are starting to bug me. I get it, they do pander. But it’s this presumptuous nature as if only males play the game and the devs are acting like they only believe in waifu baiting. (Because women never enjoyed the bridal outfits at all, right?)

            A mass pruning would be nice, but I don’t know if I see it happening. I think it’s just going to be getting worse for a while.

          • Aiddon

            Yeah, the thing is the pairings mechanic became popular is because it enriched the characters, letting us see other sides of them and how they interact with the rest of the cast. I wouldn’t be nearly as attached to the characters without it.

          • Exactly. It can be handled bad, but it’s not like the game is better without it.

          • Vigilante_blade

            I would argue it hinders them. Having tow rite around marriage limits the cope of what relaitonships can be created in the game.

          • Vigilante_blade

            You do realize that those nasty comments are thrown out way all of the time, huh? We just don’t make as much of a stink about it as you do.

          • I don’t know why you felt the need to jump in here as if anyone was talking about you in particular or that you were including; but if you haven’t seen those posts, that’s one thing. If you’ve passed by them and don’t realize why they’re xenophobic, that’s another thing.

          • Vigilante_blade

            You understand that the complaint about “waifus” is about people just not enjoying the emphasis on marriage and treating the characters like objects, right?

          • Lol. Just lol.

            You really do have a habit of either ignoring or not reading what I’m actually saying. You did it earlier, and you’re doing it here.

            I like that emphasis on marriage. As if it never figured into anything before (because Roy is just some random guy’s kid?), or as if it made up a majority of the early story in Awakening (which transitioned into it well). Sure, Fates, shoved it in. But that’s one game. And that’s because people liked the feature. This goes back to the problem with biased older fans.

            One second some of you want to crap on Fates and/or Awakening. But at a later point, you’ll drag whichever older game isn’t your fave. You can acknowledge a weak point when it comes to a game that isn’t your own, but when it comes back to whichever middle of the series/classic game you all favor? Nope. No issues. That’s elitism. It is.

            You’re making these statements as if the older games didn’t have problems with making characters one-dimension or objects. (And they don’t have to be a sex object to be an object, male or female.)

            But that’s fine. I’m done.

            I’m not going to respond to you. . . anywhere, anytime. There’s a limit to how unaware and cocky one can be. Other people can debate and chat with you, but I won’t. You always refuse to acknowledge any wrong in your argument; or really, you can never see it, and that’s just silly and impractical. It’s tiresome talking to a wall.

            Have a good night. I can’t say enjoy the game, because I’m sure you’ll boycott it, or get it and just hate it. Maybe enjoy the Switch FE? Or something else, I don’t know.

          • Vigilante_blade

            Actually, marriage is not a mechanic in the GBA era. Roy’s stats and abilities are static, and parings in FE 7 don’t change anything. I really only dislike marriage as a stat-influencing mechanic / contrived plot device that bring sin weird pocket dimensions or silly time travel.

            Understand that I’m not crapping on Fates because I want to. I played it for hundreds of hours, and didn’t appreciate the story, its world, its characters, and found the gameplay to only have a few strong chapters in Conquest, but ultimately falling short. As for Awakening, it made maps flat, removed a lot of the depth of the combat and simplified things I really enjoyed like the magic triangle not being present, weight not being a factor, and reduced movement options. As for Shadow Dragon, I ragequit that game when it asked me to kill my own units to access chapters with some lore. I legitimately think of these games as my bottom three. I don’ tdisliek things without reasons.

            You asume that I have “nostalgia goggle”. That argument is ridiculous as it doesn’t take into account the possibility that I might simply legitimately like some classic games better on their own merits. In fact, you completely discount this possibility, making discussing this with you impossible. Not liking a game doesn’t make you an elitist. If anything, assuming that people who don’t like the older games are ill-intended is a form of elitism.

            Every single game in the series have flaws, but I find that the three represented games have “fatal” flaws to my enjoyement.

            Shadow Dragon: Killing your own units, ambush spawns, low key story, hidden true ending objective that cna be easily missed.

            Awakening: Bland story, land characters, cartoony vilains, flat map design, simplified mechanics, over-emphasis on marriage. Contrived but pointless time travel. Don’t like pair up.

            Fates: Bad story, dislikeable protagonists, cartoony vilains, flat map design in Birthright, gimmicky map design in Revelations, Children in while not making sense, story divided poorly between three games, increase in fanservice.

            I hav elsited a few reasons why I don’t like them. Those are legitimate concerns that I had. Nostalgia does not account for it.

            Assuming that I’m cocky for disagreeing with you is a little… cocky in end of itself, no?

          • Vigilante_blade

            PLease don’t lie. No one had done anything of the sort here.

          • Vigilante_blade

            You see a trailer that shows blades from Awakening, Fates and Shadow Dragon only. You have already been burned before by Tokyo Mirage Sessions. You see multiple alt costumes heavily focuses on Fates and Awakening in Heroes. At this point, you become annoyed that you,re always left behind. The backlash towards the initial reveal, and now, is entirely justified. Nintendo spit on its classic fanbase, and they SHOULD hear that backlash, and we all should skip on the game. THis is not acceptable, and our outcry was incredibly justified.

            Adding DLC based off the three already-repped games is absolutely insensitive of them and shows no respect for their fans.

          • KnickKnackMyWack

            You’re wasting your time with that one. He’s the kind of troll who pretends to be a victim of being attacked for his views when he proceeds to do the same and demonize others for theirs.

          • Vigilante_blade

            Aren’t you the troll though?

            “Expected to see more whining because apparently that’s all FE fans are good for. Some of y’all did not disappoint.”

            Yep, baiting. You are a troll.

          • I’ve seen him do it plenty of times before, but I’m kind of amazed at the level it’s gotten to in this article’s comments. He even made a snide comment at someone else, and then doesn’t realize why he’s being called elitist.

          • Vigilante_blade

            Please, this ad hominem is old.

          • Ignoring what you said to Bart? Or was it not an attack just because you said it?

          • Vigilante_blade

            “Are you actually complaining when your games dominate the cast…? I guess the rich can never be truly satisfied.”

            This? I think you see attacks where there are none.

          • KnickKnackMyWack

            As someone who debated with him in the past, I’m not surprised. He’s a tool.

          • Pretty much. I used to want to give him the benefit of the doubt here and there, but his commentary has hit a new level.

          • Vigilante_blade

            You know, puchinri, I’ve never actually looked down on you, mostly saw you as someone with a very different life view, but I honestly think that you are having delusions here or really aren’t seeing something..

          • I used to think you were interested in being civil and an attempt to be rational, but you really took it overboard in this comment section. I don’t think you’re always s practical and logical as you think, but you really pushed it here.

            It’s not even just the consistent complaining against this game, it’s your one-sided view of how things go in the FE fandom, or ignoring your condescending tone to someone who wasn’t even addressing you. You were being snide when you addressed Bart; or are you going to say that your comment offered something of worth?

          • Vigilante_blade

            I am, hence why I did not insult the man. I do however question the logic of demanding more of an already-represented game when there are people starving for representaiton at all. In my mind, that seems awfully selfish.

            I think you make too much of this comment. All I,ve done was reflect the absurdity of this demand by demonstrating that at some point, you can’t complain when you have an entire roster dedicated to your needs while others are starving for even a little bit of content.

            I’m sorry if you feel that I am condescending, but this is not my end game, and I frnakly believe that you are mistaken in your judgement. If anything, I find the people who tell us to “stop complaining” and to “stay positive” when we have ample reasons to be bothered to be condescending. I am unhappy about this situation, and I would like the liberty to express it. Your constant demand that I be “positive” is actually not making things better. It is actually agravating myself, Fandangle, and every other person who has legitimate complaints. Positivity at all costs is just as toxic as unbriddled rage. Over-positivity becomes negativity. Understand where I am coming form here instead of immediately assuming the worst in me.

            We have been over this many times, but you have repeatedly attributed intentions to me that I never held. I can’t stop you, but instead of going around making wild assumption of my behaviour to someone else, I would appreciate if you told these things to me directly. This could be unintentional slander.

          • Bart

            Question my logic? I love Tharja, and I want to play with her… It’s not rocket science.

            I’ve bought every single FE game released in Europe except the one on Wii, for what it’s worth.

            Also you think you have it bad, try being a Camelot fan, hoping and praying every day they someday get to make another SRPG… Just try it.

          • Vigilante_blade

            I am a Camelot fan, bit this situation has nothing to do with it. We are talking about a company that chose to.ignore a part of its fanbase willingly.

          • Bart

            Oh you are, are you? Hmm.

            It has a lot to do with it from my perspective, FE fans are positively spoiled in comparison, yet still complaining…

            Which is ironic, as everyone knows Fire Emblem is just a poor man’s Shining Force anyway… πŸ˜‰

          • Busterblade

            There’s great irony in Vigilante complaining about you wanting your favourite character, when people only want their favourites, particular spot in whatever game be damned.

          • KnickKnackMyWack

            Normally I don’t enjoy crapping on others in this manner but in this case I will make an exception. After seeing him crap on other cultures over the Splatoon hand gesture thing, I was done. The guy is as pretentious as he is arrogant.

          • Ah, I forgot about that. Yeah, he prides himself on how intelligent he is, but then makes such insensitive and even incorrect remarks. That’s nail on the head.

          • Vigilante_blade

            Ya know, I do find it rich coming from you. You get on your soap box making wild claims about my behaviour, and yet you are the one actually hurling wannabe insults around. Hypocrisy is not becoming of anyone.

          • Velen (Not WoW)

            You’re the only one who’s throwing around any kind of wild claims and hypocrisy here.

            With so many people saying similar things against you, all from observation of how you act in general around here, one would think you would actually take a step back and look at yourself and maybe admit to yourself that “yeah, maybe what people say about me has some truth to it”…

            -but no, instead you double down and never compromise anything that it somehow means you’re strong and tough.

            No, it just means you’re stubborn to the point of stupidity.

          • It really makes me wonder if he is actually a troll, just a fairly eloquent one. Or if he’s honestly that obtuse. I’ve seen some stubborn, headstrong people, so neither would surprise me.

    • You would like join our discord server Symbol. We’re a great community of unofficial NE gamers, I feel you can contribute a lot with our topics and debating the lasting things about Nintendo news, also I would like reunite the old member of NE on my server, if you are interested in the future to join us the link is on my profile, Have a good day!

    “special bride costume for Lucina”

    *shivers*….

    oh no…

  • hi v3.0

    Yup I’m not getting this game..I got better games to play around that time anyways

    • TDude73

      Too bad.

      • hi v3.0

        Um Mario Odyssey comes 7 days after this game and this game isn’t very interesting to begin with and the DLC sucks so yeah I know what game I’m getting lol

        • TDude73

          In the words of Johnny Bravo, “Yeah, whatever.” Since you’re not a fan of Fire Emblem, it’s okay.

          • hi v3.0

            I enjoyed Fates and really liked Echoes so yeah I’m kind of a fan in a way :))

          • Vigilante_blade

            Calling someone who disagrees with you “not a real fan”. My, my.

  • GoldenTriforce

    Oh… $42 of DLC. I was going to say that doesn’t seem horrible but I think I changed my mind….

    (Though those who are complaining about the fact that there is DLC in the first place don’t quite understand the industry. Sure, it shouldn’t be this expensive, but its not like it was planned to be in the game at launch and moved to DLC. Publishers give a specific budget and release date, and unless there is something clearly wrong with a game, they aren’t going to move the date back just to add a few more characters. Games normally finish a month or so before release date. The fact that they are starting on DLC only means they want to add more content. Though maybe they should have sticked with a $20 price tag for that.

    • Princess_Eevee9

      I…I don’t understand where in the World of 42$ DLC from? The Season Pass is roughly 26$ or 10$ for individual packs?

      • GoldenTriforce

        Doing so reduces the price from 4,200 yen to 3,000 yen,

  • TDude73

    The rage is so hilarious!

  • SpectralDynamite

    Yeah… I’m probably gonna hold off on this for a while. Maybe if there isn’t anything big releasing in December, I’ll pick it up then and satisfy my hack-and-slash itch.

    • hi v3.0

      Xenoblade 2 πŸ˜‰

      • GoldenTriforce

        Xenoblade 2 is certainly the biggest game of December, if not this year, if not all time, etc.

        • SpectralDynamite

          Well that’s one… but I mean everything spanning that month. I might pick it up if Xenoblade is all there is that month.

          • hi v3.0

            The only big games for Switch on December as far as I know is Xenoblade and Doom so…

        • Princess_Eevee9

          Sarcasm? I would say this Holiday Season for right now I’m getting Skyrim and perhaps Doom if I can get over my hatred of Shooters?

          • GoldenTriforce

            The all time was sarcasm, everything else wasn’t :/

          • GoldenTriforce

            (More sarcasm against myself)

      • SpectralDynamite

        I have another 30 days in that month to scan over for games, tho.

        I really do want that Pro Controller, tho. It looked sick.

        • hi v3.0

          But it’s gonna take you 100 hours minumum πŸ™‚

          • SpectralDynamite

            Nobody said that had to be the only game I play that month. πŸ˜›

          • hi v3.0

            But it will be the game you will spend the majority of the month on >:)

          • GoldenTriforce

            What about replaying the game to 100% it? And then replaying it again just because?

          • SpectralDynamite

            I can do that later. The game’s not going anywhere.

          • GoldenTriforce

            Xenoblade X took me like 125 hours for just the story.. I think… I don’t know because I did a weird thing to grind money which made me keep the game on for an extra 24 hours so I don’t have an accurate time.

  • Addy

    What a surprise. No not really. I’m only getting the base game, and maybe get this if I’m really, really bored and have money to flush down the toilet.

  • ronin4life

    I already figured this too: that dlc eould expand these main games first before introducing other titles’ characters.

    I also expect at some point, probably after these sets and before others (or the inevitable X version) dlc featuring the switch Fire Emblem’s Characters. And at some point I think there will be a crossover event with Fire Emblem Heroes(with the two games sharing their OCs), but that is less likely

  • KnickKnackMyWack

    Expected to see more whining because apparently that’s all FE fans are good for. Some of y’all did not disappoint.

    • I think some of them forgot that they did this with Heroes (just the idea of it even; as if it would take away from any future titles), and when Fates was announced and news was streaming in.

      Fire Emblem fandom has been wild since Awakening. It’s sad that there are so many people that are biased or hateful against Awakening and/or Fates. You don’t have to like the game or the quality, but don’t pretend like previous games didn’t issues, and why act like the series can never grow or improve?

      What should be reasonable and general frustration is really exploding into nonsense.
