    I was under the impression that this was a 2018 game.

    • awng782

      Lol why?

    • Emufred

      Really? I was under the impression it will be somewhere in September.

      Feels to close to Odyssey now, hopefully Nintendo knows what they’re doing.

      The traditional fire emblem for the switch is 2018. This is a spinoff ala hyrule warriors

      • Exy

        I can’t tell them apart anymore.

        • Airsh Bornely

          That’s like saying you can’t tell Pokken Tournament apart from the mainline Pokemon games.

          • Exy

            I mean, when this was first announced, I thought they were talking about the mobile game before I saw screenshots.

  • Roto Prime

    Noooooooo, all my money!!!! ;______;

  • theFooFighter

    This should have been a December game. Mario is going to kill this game

    • ≈ KobobKC ≈ ᔦꙬᔨ

      I’m sure stores will be selling it in December.

      • theFooFighter

        The majority of sales for the majority of games happen in the first week. A lot of Nintendo stuff bucks the trend but at the same time this is a spin off of one of Nintendo’s B tier series this isn’t going to be one of those switch games people will still be buying new copies of in 2020 or even January after the switch gets Mario, Skyrim, xenoblade, and rocket league

  • NintendoPSXTheSecond

    Well, I’ll bite. (So long as it’s not NYC exclusive limited to 1,000 units).

    • Velen (Not WoW)

      Man, those Special Editions are gonna sell out so fast…. xC

      • NintendoPSXTheSecond

        Ah sh*t I forgot about that possibility since it’s Fire Emblem.

      • Busterblade

        I wonder, since people do only have limited funds, and Odyssey is only a few days after that, what exactly will happen.

        People will probably prepare, since it is a SE. I know I probably will.

  • Lord Ozzie

    I just realized its one week before Mario Odyssey…Is this even wise? Forget that, my wallet is bleeding as it is and October is going to be a bloodbath for us…

    • NeptuniasBeard

      It probably won’t help, but I doubt it’ll be devastating. The games are hardly competing.

  • Chisara

    Hmm. To buy the special edition or not to buy the special edition…Decisions, decisions. If it’s placed on Amazon with a prime discount I will consider it.

    • Fredy Rodriguez Ortega

      sadly, Amazon Prime has new policies now, the 20% discount only applies to standard editions

      • Chisara

        Yeah, just figured out :/ freaking Amazon…

        • Fredy Rodriguez Ortega

          the other option is Best buy gamer unlocked club or whatever is named but well I never buy anything there so paying a subscription only for games, does not make sense

  • dathip

    Preordering this muthasucka fast!

  • TDude73

    Nintendo and KOEI TECMO better be printing them money at launch. The special edition of Fire Emblem Warriors are gonna be sold out from pre-orders. It’s gonna be freaking LIT!!!

  • JJ

    No interested whatsoever in this game. The main and really only reason I like Hyrule Warriors was all the Zelda lore, but I am not nearly as much of a fan of the Fire Emblem franchise.

    • TDude73

      Why the hell are you here, JJ?

      • DeltaPeng

        He’s can have his own opinion.

        For myself, I like FE, and Zelda, but am not as much a man of DW gameplay, so I’ll probably hold off unless some gameplay convinces me otherwise, or maybe a sale. The HD on FE should look great though!

      • JJ

        Why the h*ll should I not be?

    • Maybe we’ll see news for a LoZ spin-off soon~.

  • NeptuniasBeard

    That looks dope! I’ll definitely try to get on this.

    And 25 character cards likely means 25 characters in the base game. Which is actually pretty dang great.

    • Busterblade

      A nice selection indeed, but I’d have loved a steelcase of that… *cue sadness*

  • awng782

    I think FE Warriors and Mario Odyssey are different enough such that the latter won’t really have much of a sales impact on the former. If FE Warriors was a 3D platformer, then it would be in trouble.

    BTW I’m now more interested than ever to see what Switch games release in November. Xenoblade 2, Skyrim, and Rocket League are likely candidates. Wonder if there will be anything else…

  • JasonBall

    Please Nintendo delay Mario to November 17. Switch NEEDS a game that day that isn’t Xenoblade.

  • Not a bad pricepoint for the SE~. I’m really considering that!

    • NeptuniasBeard

      If only one of those character cards had swimsuit Xander on it~

      • Oh my, now you got me wishing.

  • Apfel

    Off topic (kind of), but someone might be interested:

    3ds XL Super Nintendo Edition, Chrom&Tiki amiibo, Fire Emblem Warriors SE preorders available in amazon Germany.
