Nintendo America have released a new trailer to help promote the upcoming launch of Fire Emblem Warriors. The trailer also includes in-game footage from the Nintendo Switch version of the game which you can check out below.
Japan saw the release of Fire Emblem Warriors last week on Nintendo Switch and New Nintendo 3DS. Sales were not too bad as the title managed to sell 40,000 copies on the Switch & around 20,000 on the New 3DS. According to Dengeki, Fire Emblem Warriors has sold through 50% of Japan’s initial shipment.
It may seem like a slow start, especially seeing as the Fire Emblem series is quite popular in the Japan, though I am sure the numbers will no doubt fair a lot better in the West when it releases in two weeks. On the other hand, Hyrule Warriors on the Wii U sold just under 70,000 units and the 3DS version sold 56,000.
Fire Emblem Warriors debuted in Japan last week. On Switch, the game sold a little over 40,000 copies. The New 3DS version also moved just under 20,000 units. Dengeki further adds that Fire Emblem Warriors sold through 50 percent of its initial shipment.
The one somewhat comparison we have is Hyrule Warriors. On Wii U, the game sold a bit under 70,000 units within its first week. Later on, Hyrule Warriors Legendsfor the New 3DS sold about 56,000 copies, 60% of the initial shipment. To be fair though, The Legend Of Zelda series does have a bigger fanbase.
Just a few days ago, Nintendo released a short Live-Action video for Fire Emblem Heroes. Now they have released a full version and gives a bit more back story between Ike & the Black Knight. You can check out the video below.

More details have emerged for Fire Emblem Warriors that give insight into new combat mechanics along with plenty of new screenshots, courtesy of the latest issue of Famitsu Magazine
The “Pair Up” system from Fire Emblem Awakening will be making a return and will allow you to pair up your fighter with an ally to do a joint attack. One character will be in front and the other will be behind.
Once you have two characters paired up, a “Dual Attack Gauge” and “Dual Guard Gauge” will appear on screen. Once the Dual Attack gauge is full, you will be able to break an enemy’s guard and Dual Guard will nullify enemy attacks once full.
The last combat mechanic to be mentioned is the “Dual Mystery Attack.” Once the Special Gauge of both warriors is filled up, you can unleash a special combo technique upon your enemies. Footage of Marth & Lucina’s Mystery Attack can be seen in the short clip below.
And to finish off, we have some new screenshots of Hinoka, Takumi, Camilla & Leo as they appear in Fire Emblem Warriors.
