A new trailer showing off some of Fire Emblem Warriors’ roster was just released by Nintendo.
In the trailer, we could see Lissa, Fredrick, Lucina, Robin and Chrom prominently featured in a series of cutscenes. Though we still don’t have concrete confirmation, it is likely that they will be playable in the final game. What was amazing to me was Lissa wielding an axe. For those who do not know, Lissa was more of a healer than an upfront attacker in Fire Emblem Awakening. Seeing her swing the axe onto the ground was somewhat of an eye opening.
Also shown off is the voice acting. Though it may seem out of sync in the trailer, perhaps due to the yet polished localisation, voice dialogue is confirmed for the game. However, only English voice is available for North American and UK release.
Here is an overview from Nintendo:
