Fire Emblem Warriors getting free downloadable Japanese voice pack at launch

Posted on October 17, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in New Nintendo 3DS, News, Switch

It’s been a rather murky road when it comes to Fire Emblem Warriors and dual audio. We’ve never been able to get a clear cut answer straight from Nintendo about the situation – until today that is.

The North American launch trailer for Fire Emblem Warriors reveals that Nintendo will be putting out a free downloadable Japanese voice-pack at launch. This tells us that you should be able to play the game with Japanese voices if you’d like. So the choice is there – play with the dubbed, English cast or the Japanese voices.

    The English dub is not bad at all, but so far Japanese voices excel at quality. This is great news for me!

  • Vigilante_blade

    That is a good move. Still a bad roster though.

  • MagcargoMan

    And many weebs rejoiced!

  • Hah. Of course. Well, I’m glad. If/when I pick up the game, I’ll grab the voice pack.

  • Bart

    Good. 😀

    Not so much for my wallet, since now I’ll have to get this at launch again, but still, yay.

    But if it’s not too much to ask, could they not communicate this sort of thing a bit more clearly in the future, and a bit more in advance, would save me some stress and worying…

    Now about Xenoblade 2…

  • Aline Piroutek

    Every voiced title should have this option

  • Addy

    And I’m guessing the voice pack and the “day one” patch will eat up, at minimum, 1.5 GB.

    • bubblinz

      Dunno about that man.. Considering the Japanese voice itself supposedly already in the game. The DLC probably only added the “switching” button from eng voice to jap voice.

      • Addy

        If that’s the case, then it’s considered on-disc (on-card?) DLC.

        • Aline Piroutek

          Yes, but free.

          • Addy

            But it should be available from the get go, not behind a download wall.

          • Hidden Flare

            Guess you won’t like splatoon considering all its free ‘on disc’ things.

          • Addy

            I stopped playing Splatoon since 2016. I’m bad at it, my internet is trash, and once the servers shut down completly, the game’s about as useful as a drink coaster.

          • Hidden Flare

            Ok I’m sorry to hear, wifi is a tough thing. But I do not understand your original statement, if you can even get wifi at a coffee shop, updates aren’t an issue. Free content is good.

          • Addy

            I’m fine with free content, but free content being separately released and not included in the game on the day they both get released is another thing. Almost as bad as day one paid DLC like most AAA titles are doing for the past few years. I understand the legal reasons and royalties with the Japanese voice cast and all, but they should have got that sorted out sooner and not during the “just around the corner” time frame.

            Now as for internet service for me, I will add that it’s not the worst, but it’s not great either. I live in a rural area where back then, all I had was dial-up until the late 2000s, then switched to a USB thumb drive method for a few years until I switched again to satellite internet for whatever it was called, don’t think it’s broadband. So when from the speed of a snail on a treadmill going backwards, to a turtle who had a sip of coffee but takes a nap once in a while. Not much of an improvement, but it’s the best I can do.

            I suppose it does make a bit of sense, taking a small delay for its day one patch wouldn’t kill anyone but I suppose I don’t make these choices. Still it doesn’t hurt around right now.

          • Addy

            It hurts when a game gets a day one patch, and it hurts when a game gets delayed to avoid a day one patch yet it still gets a day one patch in the end so what is point if delaying it. Point is nobody wins.

            How is it a wall? Download it and you have it and it likely won’t take up much data.

          • Addy

            Well I can’t call it a pay wall, it’s free. What should I call it? Free DLC that should have been part of a update patch but the developers couldn’t be bothered to do that? Also remember the Switch’s hard drive is 32GB, and 1 whole GB, again, that’s what I assume the voice pack’s data size is, is a sizeable chunk.

          • I agree that it’s stupid to exclude a feature that could easily fit on the cartridge and create more work for everyone who made/buys the game, Just like Zelda’s voice pack, but you’re making mountains of molehills, bud.

          • KnickKnackMyWack

            Anything but a wall. You’re not blocked from doing anything. It’s a fraction of the internal memory, let alone any of the cheap cards you can get to expand it.

          • Addy

            $20 for a 32 GB micro SD is not worth the purchase with the 200 (or 400 I forget what the highest currently is) GB around the corner. I’m going to wait for when the 64 GB ones are the price of 32 GBs.

          • KnickKnackMyWack

            I got a 200GB MicroSD card in my Switch right now. It was around $50 off of Amazon.

          • Addy

            $100 CDN and up last I checked.

            And before anyone asks, CDN is Canadian currency.

          • KnickKnackMyWack

            That’s a shame. I must have gotten it when it was on sale. Hopefully the prices will continue to fall.

          • Addy

            As long as the value of the Canadian dollar doesn’t continue to shrink.

      Considering the entire game is 13.1 GB, I don’t think the download will be big in the slightest. 13.1 GB includes models, English voices, cutscenes, levels… literally the entire game and all of its content. In comparison, a few recordings will be nothing.

      • Addy

        The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for Nintendo Switch is roughly the same size. The Voice Pack is about 800MB, at least for the Wii U, don’t know if it was included on the Switch version from the get go or made available via an update patch, it had multiple languages. FE Warriors’ downloadable voice pack has only Japanese voices, and the game had more voice acting, I assume that at least. The 1.5 GB of data, like I said, is for the game updates and the voice pack, and only an assumption of mine.

        • awesomeparadise3

          Huh. 2.5 GB. You were right.

  • bubblinz

    This is the best thing ive heard about this game.

  • Pepperkeet


  • chancetime

  • R.Z.

    Oh no, some people won’t have an excuse not to buy the game now !
    Nintendo really is the worst !
