Today Koei Tecmo released a large of lovely screenshots from the Nintendo Switch version of the upcoming Musou-style game Fire Emblem Warriors.
First of all, we get the reveal of two returning characters, female Robin and Cordelia from Fire Emblem Awakening.
More screenshots also showcases gameplay features.
First of all, we take a look at weapons. Using a weapon that has the advantage over an enemy will cause the appearance of a stun gauge. Applying more attacks will cause higher damage, and even more so if you keep hitting with a weapon of the favorable type.
Special weapons have special effects that can cause tremendous damage against specific enemies.
Secondly, we get to see the different movement types. Mounted characters can move quickly on the battlefield, and have a charge attack that can deliver high damage. Certain maps have areas that can be reached only by flying units.
During battle, you can instruct an hero to take a certain route, and set the actions that will be executed after completing your instructions. The character you control directly can be changed at any time among the four on the battlefield.
We also take another look at the bond system, that will let you deepen the relationship between heroes, triggering conversations. Heroes who die during battle will be lost, and won’t be able to participate in following battles. This loss occurs only in “classic” mode. You can set the game to “casual” and avoid the penalty.
The game will will launch on Nintendo Switch and on the 3DS family of systems on September 28th in Japan and in the fall in the west. At the moment no specific release date has been announced for North America and Europe.
