Fire Emblem Warriors for Nintendo Switch and New Nintendo 3DS launches on Oct. 20

When the Fire Emblem
game launches Oct. 20 for the Nintendo
and New Nintendo 3DS
family of systems, it will do so with a wealth of content and
action-packed gameplay. The new game offers a twist on the acclaimed Fire
series by uniting fan-favorite characters from Fire Emblem
history to participate in over-the-top battles focused on real-time,
tactical action rather than turn-based strategy.

Fire Emblem Warriors offers action-filled combat through an epic
campaign starring more than 20 playable warriors, including two new
characters, Lianna and Rowan, battling alongside beloved heroes like
Marth, Lyn, Xander, Corrin and Chrom. Fans who want to get even more out
of the game can download the free DLC Japanese voice pack and free
software update on launch day, as well as purchase upcoming

“Whether you are a super fan of the Fire Emblem franchise,
new to the series or played and loved the previously released Hyrule
game, Fire Emblem Warriors offers a fantastic
adventure filled with great gameplay,” said Doug Bowser, Nintendo of
America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “The
action-filled game is another solid addition to the Nintendo Switch and
Nintendo 3DS lineups.”

At midnight ET on Oct. 20, both the free DLC Japanese voice pack and a
free software update will go live. The DLC voice pack adds the ability
to experience the game with Japanese voice audio and English subtitles.
The free software update adds battle results to the game’s History mode
and a new feature for sorting in-game weapons.

Starting in December, a series of three paid DLC packs will also release
for the game. The first DLC pack launches in December, the second in
February and the third in March, with each pack adding three new
playable characters, three new History scenarios, new costumes, new
weapons and new support conversations inspired by Fire Emblem Fates,
Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon
and Fire Emblem Awakening,
respectively. Each DLC pack will cost $8.99, but a Season Pass can be
purchased starting on Oct. 20 for $19.99. The Season Pass includes all
three DLC packs, which become available as they release, as well as a
bonus bridal costume for Lucina that can only be obtained by purchasing
the Season Pass.

Fire Emblem Warriors launches for Nintendo Switch on Oct. 20 at a
suggested retail price of $59.99. A special edition will launch
exclusively for the Nintendo Switch system on the same day at a
suggested retail price of $79.99. The special edition includes the game,
