Following yesterday’s update of the official Fire Emblem Warriors website, Koei Tecmo sent in a press release adding more details and screenshots.
On top of a couple more images portraying Chrom, Lyssa and Frederick, we get to see the Shield of Fire and the Bond system.
The Shield of Fire is an artifact from the kingdom of Aytolis. During the story, Chrom shines of a blue aura, and the light condenses in a pyroxene gem, that embeds itself in one of the five slots on the shield. Part of the story of the game revolves around new heroes Rowan and Lianna as they travel with the other heroes in search of the other gems to complete the shield.
The game will also have a Bond system, when the relationship between two heroes raises up to a certain point, their bond level will increase. By raising the bond level, heroes will have fully voiced conversations as they get to know each other.
Fire Emblem Warriors is being developed as a collaboration between Omega Force, Team Ninja and Intelligent Systems. It will release on Nintendo Switch and on the 3DS family of systems on September 28th in Japan and in the fall in the west.
