Below is the new information for Fire Emblem Warriors translated, courtesy of Gematsu.

■ Characters

Corrin (Male) (voiced by Nobunaga Shimazaki)

A young man who was brought up in Nohr while being of Hoshido blood. He has the power of a dragon hidden within him and fights using a sword called “Yato,” as well as possesses the special trait of turning into a dragon to attack. His attack motions and abilities are the same as Corrin (Female) (voiced by Satomi Sato).

Sakura (voiced by Hikiko Kanemoto)

The kind-hearted princess of Hoshido. She was separated from Fire Emblem Fates protagonist Corrin when she was a child. She attacks using a bow and has the ability to recover HP like Elise.

Elise (voiced by Ayaka Suwa)

The youngest of the four Nohrian royal siblings. She has a cheerful and innocent personality that shines brightly upon the gloomy kingdom. She is a Troubadour who fights riding a horse, can heal allies, and uses attack magic.

Legendary Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu is holding a 24-hour livestream on Niconico starting this Thursday, August 31st, at 7 PM JST to celebrate its 1,500th issue going on sale. Journalists, developers and voice actors will be present to talk about the magazine’s history, play games and more. The livestream will also feature upcoming games – and among those is Fire Emblem Warriors. The game’s official Twitter account has revealed that during the stream’s opening segment, new information about Fire Emblem Warriors will be revealed.

Despite the game’s Japanese release date being only one month away, there’s still quite a lot we don’t know about it. We still haven’t met any of the game’s Shadow Dragon characters other than Marth, the amiibo functionality is still unknown and the game’s Coliseum mode also hasn’t been talked about a whole lot. Either way, there’s plenty that could be revealed during the stream. If you have a Niconico account, you’ll be able to watch it live here.


Update: The Fire Emblem Warriors Special Edition costs $79.99. Also, the main game will be out for New 3DS / New 2DS XL on the same day, if you had any doubts.

Original: Last week, Nintendo announced an October 20 release date for Fire Emblem Warriors in Europe. We now also know that the game will be out in North America on the same day. Nintendo just confirmed a stateside release of October 20.

In other news, the Fire Emblem Warriors Special Edition has also been announced for North America. It includes a copy of the game, three CDs, a dual-sided poster, and 25 character art cards. Pricing has not yet been announced.
