New details have come in for Fire Emblem Warriors. Along with overviews of characters, there’s also news about Bond Levels and more.

First up, character details:


– A mysterious person who was rescued by Chrom when he collapsed on the wayside
– When he woke up, he already lost his memory
– He has a natural talent in tactics, and he has been assisting Chrom in various strategies as his strategist
– His class is Tactician, which is his first class in the original game
– He will fight by using a magic book


– Chrom’s sister, and also the princess of the halidom of Ylisse
– She has a bright and innocent personality suitable for her age, and she always encourages her friends
– Her first class in the original game was a Cleric which could heal allies’ HP, but in this game, she wields an axe and fights on the frontlines by herself
– Just like War Clerics in Fire Emblem Awakening, she also excels in close-range combat while being a healer

Players have discovered all sorts of neat glitches since the game’s launch in March. Another one has been found, and it could be the most useful one yet – depending on how you look at it.

How does getting unlimited Korok Seeds sound? Or how about an infinite supply of Hylian Shields? With the newest glitch, both are entirely possible.

The glitch itself is very easy to do. You only need to enter the Trial of the Sword, warp to a Divine Beast that you haven’t finished… and that’s mostly it.

The video below shows the glitch in action. Everything respawns – treasure chests, Sheikah Towers, Shrines. If you’re looking for an easy way to gather 900 Korok Seeds, this is one way to do it. You’ll just need to put in the work to execute the glitch over and over.

SEGA has been posting music from Sonic Forces on YouTube as of late. The same treatment has since been extended to Sonic Mania as well. Listen to the music from Studiopolis Act 1 below.

Update: The “listing” itself isn’t officially ruled out as fake, but the boxart is using fan art. That does hurt the chances of this being real regardless of whether or not Fire Emblem Fates Complete Edition appeared on Amazon Spain in the first place.

Original: Amazon Spain is rumored to have listed Fire Emblem Fates Complete Edition for Switch. It allegedly appeared on the retailer’s website for a brief while, only to be pulled shortly after. The listing had a release date of November 17.

There are a few things to consider here. First, in this day and age, almost anything can be created and passed off as something looking authentic. Second, assuming the listing is real, it could have been an accidental listing on Amazon’s part. If we somehow manage to get past those two obstacles, only then would Fire Emblem Fates Complete Edition have a chance of being real.
