5 More Fire Emblem Warriors Characters Revealed in Box Art Leakon September 12, 2017 by Holly Williams
This game doesn’t seem to be having much luck when it comes to revealing characters ahead of schedule, as 5 more Fire Emblem Warriors characters not yet announced have been shown in sprites on the limited edition box! There are 25 characters on the box in total, which will presumably be the complete starting roster!
Take a look for yourself below (thanks to Hachima for the image):
In addition to all the characters who have been announced so far, the box shows sprites for Caeda and Tiki from Shadow Dragon, a version of Anna that’s possibly new to Warriors, Celica from Echoes, and Lyndis from Blazing Blade. Tiki was to be expected with the upcoming amiibo, and Caeda’s an obvious choice as far as Shadow Dragon goes. It’s a real shame there are only 3 Shadow Dragon characters though. It would have been nice to see some others, such as Minerva, make it in too!
A lot of people were hoping some of the Fire Emblem Warriors characters would be taken from games other than Shadow Dragon, Awakening, and Fates, and it’s great to see there are a couple! Lyn is very popular, so I’m sure this reveal will make a lot of fans very happy! It makes sense that there’d be at least one character from Echoes too, and Celica over Alm does reduce the number of plain sword users as she can use magic as well. It seems wrong to have one without the other though! Maybe Alm will be available as DLC later on?
There’s going to be a lot of information about Fire Emblem Warriors at Tokyo Game Show, so I’m sure we’ll be learning more about how these characters will play soon enough! It’d be great to see them in some trailers!
Fire Emblem Warriors releases on September 28th in Japan and October 20th in Europe and North America, for Switch and New 3DS.
