There was a new trailer for Fire Emblem Warriors at Nintendo's E3 presentation video today introducing the story, as well as new characters like Corrin from Fire Emblem Fates.

The narrative trailer introduces the twin siblings who must save their kingdom from an "evil dragon." To do so, the enlist the help of Fire Emblem heroes from different worlds such as Marth, Chrom, and Corrin. The premise is actually vaguely similar to Nintendo's mobile Fire Emblem title, Fire Emblem Heroes. Although, considering this is a "Warriors" game, you can expect the Switch title to play drastically different than Heroes, eschewing the SRPG, turn-based grid strategy gameplay for a more traditional action game.

Fire Emblem Warriors releases on the Switch this Fall.
