Fire Emblem Warriors: New combat details, screenshots, and more
Posted on 2 years ago by Andrew in New Nintendo 3DS, News, Screenshots, Switch | 1 Comment
With the newest Famitsu magazine scans, more details for Fire Emblem Warriors have come out showing some new combat mechanics and new screenshots.
First off, one of the newest game mechanics detailed is the “Pair Up” system. This mechanic was first introduced in Fire Emblem Awakening and it allows you to form a pair up attack with an ally when you get close to them in battle. In Fire Emblem Warriors, one character will be in front while the other character will be behind you.
When you are paired up, the “Dual Attack Gauge” and the “Dual Guard Gauge” will appear on the screen. Dual Attack allows you to break the enemy’s guard when its gauge is filled up, while Dual Guard nullify the enemy’s attacks when the gauge is full.
Finally, the last mechanic detailed is the “Dual Mystery Attack.” When the Warrior Special gauges of both units are filled up, you can use this special combo technique in battle. The only Dual Mystery Attack known right now is Marth and Lucina’s, which you can watch here.
There are also some new screenshots released showing off the newest revealed characters Hinoka, Camilla, Takumi, and Leo. You can view them below in our gallery.

Pre-order Super Mario Odyssey at Best Buy, get a collectible coin
Posted on 2 years ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch | 4 Comments
Best Buy is preparing a special pre-order bonus for Super Mario Odyssey. If you reserve the game, you’ll receive a free collectible coin when the game launches. My Best Buy members will be eligible for $10 in rewards as well.
All of this information is provided on a flyer handed out to those attending the Nintendo World Championships 2017 qualifiers at Best Buy in the Bronx Terminal Market. Pre-orders can be placed either online or in-store. Also, in order to receive the pin, it seems that reservations will need to be done between August 18 and September 23.
The other tricky thing here is that we don’t have an actual image of the pin yet… nor is this information appearing on Best Buy’s site for the time being. We’ll keep an eye on the page to see if it pops up soon.
