Fire Emblem Warriors[a] is a hack-and-slash action video game developed by Omega Force, Team Ninja and Intelligent Systems, and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo Switch and New Nintendo 3DS, planned for release in 2017. The game is a collaboration between Koei Tecmo's Dynasty Warriors franchise and Intelligent Systems' Fire Emblem series.

Overview

Fire Emblem Warriors is hack-and-slash action video game in which players take the role of multiple characters including original characters Rowan and Lianna, and characters from several Fire Emblem games, including Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light, Fire Emblem Awakening and Fire Emblem Fates. In addition to hack-and-slash combat in open areas similar to the Dynasty Warriors series, gameplay also features the Weapons Triangle and Support Conversations featured in the Fire Emblem series.[1] The game will also utilise all existing Fire Emblem Amiibo figurines, although details on use are not yet known.[2]

Development and release

Fire Emblem Warriors is being developed by the same team as Hyrule Warriors, a collaboration between the Dynasty Warriors series and The Legend of Zelda.[9] The game was co-developed by Koei Tecmo studios Omega Force and Team Ninja and Fire Emblem developers Intelligent Systems.[9][10] Koei Tecmo first proposed the project to Nintendo, who were more than willing to collaborate, making the game a title for their in-development Nintendo Switch home console.[10] The idea of the game came during the development of Hyrule Warriors Legends, as the touchscreen controls bore similarities to those of the Fire Emblem series.[2]

The game was announced in January 2017 as part of a Nintendo Direct broadcast dedicated to the Fire Emblem series,[9] although it had already been in development for around two years before this time.[2] It is scheduled for release in Japan on September 28, 2017, and in Europe, Australia, and North America on October 20, 2017.[11]
