Gameplay

Fire Emblem Warriors largely draws its structure and gameplay from the Dynasty Warriors franchise, in which players chain together weak and heavy attacks to fight armies of soldiers.[8] The game incorporates features prevalent in the Fire Emblem series, such as the weapon triangle, unit classes, the support system, and other strategic elements, as well as the ability to switch between characters mid-battle[9] and being able to direct them to other areas on the map.[10]

Development

Fire Emblem Warriors was originally unveiled during the Nintendo Switch Presentation 2017. During the Fire Emblem Direct on February 18, an extended trailer was showcased featuring a first look at gameplay.[2][8] Development on the game had already begun by late 2015.[11] The idea of a Fire Emblem-style Dynasty Warriors game originated at Koei Tecmo, and when the idea was proposed to Nintendo they began to discuss developing the game for their "new console", later revealed as the Nintendo Switch.[11] From the beginning the intention of the developers was "to make a Warriors game that can be enjoyed by Fire Emblem fans".[11]

Similar to Hyrule Warriors, when selecting what games would be represented the developers chose to primarily focus on three titles: Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light, Fire Emblem Awakening, and Fire Emblem Fates.[9][12]

Producer Yosuka Hayashi confirmed that the Japanese version of the game had "gone gold" during a livestream on September 1, stating that most of development had been completed.[13]
