Nintendo Dream recently published an interview with Hiroya Usuda and Yosuke Hayshi. Both of these individuals were involved in Fire Emblem Warriors on the Nintendo Switch. There’s plenty of insight to be read in the full interview but what is also interesting is that the team says that they would love to work on a sequel to the game. It’s not happening right now, but if it would be given the go-ahead by Nintendo, it sounds like both teams would jump at the chance.
“In terms of the development period, the project began at a time when the Nintendo Switch had not been revealed, Fire Emblem Heroes wasn’t released and Fire Emblem Fates had recently come out. Together with Nintendo and IS, it was nice to be associated with the Fire Emblem IP and stay close to it, while watching it grow bigger. Because of pressure, I worried if the game would play well, but since we were able to understand the audience, it was a very enjoyable project. We feel regret for the characters we were unable to include. If there’s the opportunity, I would love to make Fire Emblem Warriors 2, but that’s not something we’re working on right now. The Fire Emblem series itself has a long history. We’re also fans of Fire Emblem and we hope to support it in the future.”
