Online publication Kotaku had the chance to catch up with Masahiro Higuchi from Intelligent Systems and also Yosuke Hayashi from Koei Tecmo to interview them about all things Fire Emblem Warriors.
During the interview, the duo spoke about how they chose the characters to feature in the upcoming title, with Masahiro Higuchi advising, “when we were selecting characters for the game we definitely put strategy first, and that came down to weapons with sword users, axe users, and lancers. We wanted to choose characters that would make up the classic classes and add tactical elements for the gameplay.”
Also during the interview, Higuchi spoke about how they kept fans in mind when choosing characters for Fire Emblem Warriors, “We really wanted to choose characters from around three games that make sense from a fan perspective. That’s why we chose Shadow Dragon, Awakening, and Fates to focus on.”
Fire Emblem Warriors will be released this Autumn on the Nintendo Switch, with no official release date at this time.
