Clash with legions of enemies as Marth, Xander, Corrin, Chrom, and other Fire Emblem warriors by unleashing over-the-top-powerful Dynasty Warriors-style moves. Take control of characters with distinct attacks, issue strategic commands, pair up warriors for stunning moves, and more in an epic tactical action game from the Hyrule Warriors team.
In the Kingdom of Aytolis, new heroes mystically collide with warriors from across the history of Fire Emblem™, who must band together to face countless enemies and restore the mysterious Shield of Flames to stop the Chaos Dragon. Advance the story to unlock additional playable characters, each with different attacks, weapons, combos, and voiced dialogue. A combination of intense combat and strategic Fire Emblem gameplay offers a take on battling that's new to the series. Change between heroes anywhere on the battlefield and command them to victory. The materials and gold you earn in battle can be used to upgrade heroes, weapons, and more.
The latest entry in the Fire Emblem series is.... a spin off. Tecmo Koei has partnered again with Nintendo to bring the Dynasty Warriors-style gameplay to another IP of the Big N, much like the previously released Hyrule Warriors and Hyrule Warriors Legends. These games aren't typically my thing, but there is something cathartic about simply running around and button-mashing through a legion of fools on your way to victory.
I'm getting my copy today, who else is in on this?
@GameDadGrant I'm excited about this one--I was getting a tad burnt out on FE, but my enjoyment of Hyrule Warriors last gen makes this an enticing buy.
However, I'm getting the Switch version. Should I make a separate thread about that one, or should we just keep it all in here...? Seems kind of pointless to split discussion like that when the versions are pretty much identical.
Yeah both versions are the same, so I don’t think two threads are needed. We didn’t make two threads for Hyrule Warriors, right? (or Donkey Kong Country Returns, or Xenoblade Chronicles, NES Remix, Dr. Luigi, Super Mario Maker, Blaster Master Zero, Shovel Knight or Yoshi’s Woolly World).
Wow. Y’know, there is something to be said about Nintendo merging their handheld and console business together, finally.
