Fire Emblem Warriors Adds Fan-Favorite Character

  • Written by Gamespot

Fire Emblem Warriors, the hack-and-slash spinoff by Dynasty Warriors developer Koei Tecmo, launches for Nintendo Switch and 3DS this October, and now we know of one more character who'll be featured in the game's roster. During today's Nintendo Direct, the company revealed that the fan-favorite hero Lyn will be a playable character in Warriors.

Lyn is notable for being one of the main characters in Fire Emblem for Game Boy Advance, which was the first installment in the series to be released outside of Japan. She's also the first character thus far not to come from Fire Emblem Awakening, Fates, or Shadow Dragon, which Koei Tecmo said would be the three titles primarily represented in Warriors' roster. We'll have a trailer for Lyn once it goes live.

Fire Emblem Warriors releases on October 20. The Switch version will also be available as an $80 special edition, which includes 25 character art cards and a three-disc soundtrack. New Amiibo figures of Chrom and Tiki will also launch alongside the title.

There's still more news on the way; you can watch the Nintendo Direct live here. You can also check out our roundup of all the news from the Nintendo Direct, which we'll continue to update as things are announced.
