Koei Tecmo have announced today on Twitter that Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes has now shipped over 1 million units worldwide. This number includes both retail shipments and digital sales, although no regional breakdown has been provided, so we don’t know where the game has been most popular.

Below is some more information about the game:

Uncover the fates of three great powers in Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes for Nintendo Switch – a different story set in the universe of Fire Emblem: Three Houses. Command vast forces in real-time battles that blend the strategy of Fire Emblem with action-packed Warriors style gameplay to unravel the diverging paths of Fódlan’s new future.

Take on the role of Shez – a lone mercenary on a quest for answers after suffering a brutal defeat at the hands of the mysterious Ashen Demon. After crossing paths with the future rulers of the three nations that govern Fódlan, Shez quickly finds themself wrapped up in a growing conflict that will determine the future of the continent.

New stories will unfold as you guide a mercenary who was meant to fade from the pages of history down one of three diverging paths!

Not long after your adventure begins, you’ll be asked to enrol in one of the Officers Academy’s three mighty houses. The students of these houses wield unique abilities and are brimming with personality, but choose wisely – your choice will shape your destiny!

Lead your companions in real-time battles against countless hordes of enemies, using flashy combos, powerful special abilities and some tactical know-how!

Before you head into the fray, carefully examine the map, consider your objectives, choose your allies and equip them with the right weapons. Some of them will have advantages against specific foes, so make sure to deploy them to the right location when giving orders.

In the heat of battle, hack and slash your way through swarms of enemies with calculated manoeuvres and earth-shattering abilities. By assigning an ally as an Adjutant, they’ll watch your back and lend their support to help mow down foes with powerful Partner Specials.

Make sure you give orders to your comrades, too! Dominate the battlefield by sending your troops to capture strongholds, defend friendly forces or launch an all-out offensive to turn the tides in your favour. If a situation elsewhere on the battlefront requires your intervention, switch between allies on the fly to take direct control of them and resolve the conflict.

Need a helping hand? Have a friend lend you their sword in split screen co-op mode.

Between skirmishes, lay down your weapon and take a well-earned rest at the Base Camp. It’s the perfect place to bond with your companions, train up troops, and prepare for the battles ahead.

Spend time getting to know your allies by sharing a hearty meal, volunteering in some camp chores or embarking on a relaxing expedition. As your bonds deepen, they’ll share personal stories with you, and in turn, they’ll offer better support on the frontlines.

In need of better equipment or want to test new strategies? Then acquire some shiny new weapons, unlock new classes, or participate in mock battles and training sessions. Use the spoils of your battles to expand the facilities in your encampment too. This will increase their functionality so that you and your party can reap even more benefits from using them.

You can tap up to five amiibo (sold separately) once per day to receive in-game presents or items. By tapping a Fire Emblem series amiibo, there is a chance you’ll get even better rewards!
