Fire Emblem meets the Warriors series in Fire Emblem Warriors.

Clash with legions of enemies as Marth, Xander, Corrin, Chrom, and other Fire Emblem warriors by unleashing over-the-top-powerful Dynasty Warriors-style moves. Take control of characters with distinct attacks, issue strategic commands, pair up warriors for stunning moves, and more in an epic tactical action game from the Hyrule Warriors team.

In the Kingdom of Aytolis, new heroes mystically collide with warriors from across the history of Fire Emblem, who must band together to face countless enemies and restore the mysterious Shield of Flames to stop the Chaos Dragon. Advance the story to unlock additional playable characters, each with different attacks, weapons, combos, and voiced dialogue. A combination of intense combat and strategic Fire Emblem gameplay offers a take on battling that’s new to the series. Switch between heroes anywhere on the battlefield and command them to victory. The materials and gold you earn in battle can be used to upgrade heroes, weapons, and more.

Unlock new playable heroes, each with their own unique moves, special attacks, weapon types, and voiced dialogue in this large-scale action game from the Hyrule Warriors team.

“Whether you are a super fan of the Fire Emblem franchise, new to the series or played and loved the previously released Hyrule Warriors 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.”

The free DLC Japanese voice pack and a free software update are now 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.
