Lyn from Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade has been confirmed as a playable character in the upcoming Nintendo Switch title Fire Emblem Warriors. Though not explicitly showcased in tonight’s Nintendo Direct, Caeda and Navarre from Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon were also seen in the new Fire Emblem Warriors trailer from Nintendo UK. This is the first time characters from games older than Fire Emblem Awakening have been revealed since Marth was first shown months ago.
In Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade, Lady Lyndis was the sole survivor of the Lorca tribe and granddaughter of Marquess Caelin. She was the first playable character in the first Fire Emblem game available outside of Japan, so she holds a special place in many North American and European fans’ hearts. Earlier this year, Lyn was voted the #1 most popular female Fire Emblem character worldwide in the Choose Your Legends poll for the mobile game, Fire Emblem Heroes.
In Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon, Caeda was a Pegasus Knight who served as Marth’s love interest. Navarre was a stoic mercenary who refused to harm women or children in the line of duty. Both characters also appeared in Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem.
Fire Emblem Warriors launches on Nintendo Switch and New Nintendo 3DS October 20.
Kyle is an unashamed longtime Nintendo fanboy. Some of his earliest and fondest memories are of playing Super Mario Bros. 3 on the NES with his grandmother. His favorite series are Fire Emblem and Metroid. Outside of gaming, Kyle is also a serious Whovian, favoring the Seventh Doctor and Ace as his preferred Doctor and companion. He also loves superhero movies, power metal music, and basically anything in the space fantasy genre. Avatar by Smashley (@SmashleyDraws on Twitter).
