After revealing Elise in Fire Emblem Warriors last week while also teasing more character reveals in this week's Famitsu, Koei Tecmo has delivered on their promise. From what Famitsu has posted for the official preview of the game's article, we can fully confirm that Sakura, the youngest child in the Kingdom of Hoshido, and Elise's counterpart in Fire Emblem Fates, is also playable in this game. Just like other healer characters Lissa and Elise, as staves are only used as healing items here, Sakura will mainly use Bow to fight, which in the original Fates game is the secondary weapon available to her Priestess class.
The preview scan also has an image of a correlation chart for Fire Emblem Fates characters that appear in Fire Emblem Warriors. In this chart, we can also see a confirmation that Male Corrin will be also available in the game. He might be given a similar treatment to Female Robin, which will be only available as a bonus character, as Female Corrin and Male Robin are going to be mainly featured in the game's storyline.
Famitsu also mentions that Fire Emblem Warriors will have a History Mode that re-enacts parts of the famous scenes in Fire Emblem series, and the magazine will have explanations on more game systems like Skills and Class Change. Once we have the magazine, we will take an in-depth look at the article as usual.
Fire Emblem Warriors will be released for Nintendo Switch and New Nintendo 3DS on September 28 in Japan, and October 20 in North America and Europe.
