Five Fire Emblem Warriors characters possibly leaked

Posted on September 12, 2017 by in 3DS, News, Switch

A Spanish retailer had put the box art for the collector’s edition of Fire Emblem Warriors on their website and it seems to reveal 5 more characters for the game. You can check out the GameXplain video down below, or if you just want to simply know who the five are without watching check under the video.

The box shows the pixel art of: Celica, Lyn, Tiki, Anna and Caeda.

    Already preordered. cant wait!

  • Man

    Got a feeling they are doing a “Save the best for last” scenario.

    • Vigilante_blade

      It’s kind of sad that I’m so beaten down by Nintendo that I’m potentially happy about just Lyn and Celica.

      • Drybonekoopa85

        And nobody cares…

        • Vigilante_blade

          Is it fun to go to dissapointed people and to berate them for it?

          • Thegladoss

            Is it fun to do nothing but complain and cry in every thread about this game?

        If you get ”beaten down” by video game character reveals, I suggest you find an additional hobby 😛

  • KnightWonder

    So besides Anna, these are pretty old characters.

    • QuestionKing3445

      Anna has been in the fire emblem games since shadow dragon.

      • KnightWonder

        Really? Huh. I guess people like her newer design more.

        • Vigilante_blade

          She just wasn’t a combat unit until Awakening. She was a shop keeper, a sort of recurring easter egg.

        • Exposer

          Kinda she looks like a french grils now.

  • Vigilante_blade

    Caeda and Tiki are pretty much Shadow Dragon’s only real important playable units

    Now, Anna, we already sorta knew.

    Lyn…. would essentially make me buy the game… as much as I really dislike the current roster. She makes sense being the most popular female lord in the series.
    Celica to represent Shadow sof Valentia would be more of a mage than a sword unit. So Lyn and Celica are the best additions for me.

    Now, I would assume that those are characters that may be in story mode. In that case, there could be a few unlockable units like in Hyrule Warriors…. maybe the rest of the amiibo crew…? Ike, Roy, Alm?

    Then what would tha tmean for DLC? I’m hoping tht the DLC packs are massive and only include units not from Awakening and Fates.

    Oh, and before osmeone claims that Lissa and Sakura’s sprites don,t work because of the staff, videos show them with staves on their sprite in game.

    • KnightWonder

      I bet she’ll be revealed in the Wednesday Direct.

      • Vigilante_blade

        Actually might not be the case, I think. They have reveals planned for TGS. Maybe they’ll finish the SHadow Dragon units in the direct first and leave Lyn and Celica for the TGS showing

        • Velen (Not WoW)

          I can definitely see that being the case.

    • AquaBat

      Well that’s just insulting to Minerva and her Whitewings.
      And Maria.
      And Michalis. This game needs more villains anyway.

      • Vigilante_blade

        Let’s not pretend Shadow Dragon was actually good.

        • AquaBat

          Never said it was good, just that those characters at least matter in the story

          • Vigilante_blade

            Maybe Minerva, but the whitewings can be skipped honestly

  • chancetime

    I’m gonna say this is fake purely based on a) the pathetic amount of SD reps, including no Minerva, Camus etc. and b) no Azura. Sakura who has basically no plot revelance gets in PLUS a stage in the game dedicated to Valla was shown earlier PLUS Rena Strober said she was doing more than Heroes when voicing Azura in an interview earlier this year PLUS Azura’s pendant, imagery and theme are the most reoccuring themes in the game.

    • AquaBat

      You realize that five other unrevealed characters being on the box doesn’t necessarily mean that that’s ALL the characters, right?

      • Velen (Not WoW)

        Well, there are the 25 character art cards…. but I think this is already confirmed fake. The official images of the boxart for the special edition don’t show these sprites.

        We could be looking at a very elaborate hoax here.

        Only time will tell though.

  • AquaBat

    They say they won’t include characters from other games because it would mean too many sword users and then bring in a sword user from another game?
    It’s so completely and utterly stupid that I can honestly believe it. I can only hope that Tecmo gives her a dang bow.
    At least they made a good choice picking Caeda, but now hope for Minerva is dwindling.
    Celica is a good choice and good marketing, I can’t fault that.

    • Vigilante_blade

      Lyn is by far the most popular female character in the series. Plus, she can use both a sword and a bow. FInally, they could have removed Ryoma and Xander as sword reps in Warriors and only have had Corrin.

      • AquaBat

        I literally mentioned the bow right in the post

        • Evan Gustavson

          They will give her a bow. Characters can change to a secondary weapon, if you’ve been paying attention, Mr. Negative.
          Unless I was dreaming when I heard that…

          • Velen (Not WoW)

            Where was this a thing?

          • NintendoPSXTheSecond

            Probably to Lucina using Bows probably from the Bride Class.

          • Velen (Not WoW)

            Wait…. She promotes the Bride class in this game?

          • NintendoPSXTheSecond
          • Velen (Not WoW)

            I mean in FE Warriors not Awakening. Already knew about that.

  • Vigilante_blade

    Keep in mind, Celica is not using her Echoes sprite. The box also doesn’t look at all like the limited edition box we’ve seen before.

  • NeptuniasBeard

    Obviously fake. I mean c’mon, Celica and Lyn but SD only gets 3 reps? No way Jose

  • JasonBall

    Would make for an odd spread of characters, so there’s either more or less.

  • Vincent

    Obviously fake.

    Where’s the amiibo logo? And why change the boxart?

  • Princess_Eevee9

    Why do people care about this Channel? Yeah I’m now inclined to believe 4Chan then this.

  • ToonAddict1

    While it does seem like the line-up is possible (with Celica and Lyn being included to add two more scenarios in History Mode), a couple of things really do make the authenticity of this questionable.

    1. The aforementioned lack of of the Amiibo logo, given how the early mock-up of the limited edition box did include the logo.

    2. While I can buy Celica as playable (as she does have an Amiibo, and Fire Emblem Legends/Gaiden is set in the same period as the original Fire Emblem game thank to the Pegasus Sisters), Lyn does seem to throw a little bit of a red flag here.

    Still, I do have a feeling that Tiki, Anna, and Caeda will be playable here.

  • Vigilante_blade
  • Supporter

    This could be real since the developers did say the amount of characters for each game would not be the same and that the roster would mostly be from Shadow Dragon, Awakening and Fates.

    While Shadow Dragon’s really low roster is disappointing, it’s really nice to see Celica and especially Lyn if this is the final launch roster.
