Many fans of the Fire Emblem series have criticized the character roster of Fire Emblem Warriors, the spinoff that recently released for Nintendo Switch. While the roster is fairly large without DLC at twenty-three playable characters, only Awakening, Fates, and Shadow Dragon are represented in the roster with a couple exceptions. This will also be the case with the upcoming DLC for the game, and we now know exactly what these packs will be adding.

The DLC will be distributed via three packs, all of which you can buy in a season pass if you so choose. Each pack can also be purchased separately, as was the case with Hyrule Warriors as well. The three packs are themed according to Fates, Shadow Dragon, and Awakening, and each comes with a trio of new characters as well as additional maps, weapons, outfits, and models.

The Fates pack will include:

  • Playable characters: Azura, Niles, and Oboro
  • Three new History Maps
  • Five new Costumes
  • Thirteen new Broken-Armor Models

The Shadow Dragon pack will include:

  • Playable characters: Navarre, Minerva, and Linde
  • Three new History Maps
  • Four new Costumes
  • Nine new Broken-Armor Models
  • Six new Weapons

The Awakening pack will include:

  • Playable characters: Owain, Tharja, and Olivia
  • Three new History Maps
  • Three new Costumes
  • Ten new Broken-Armor Models
  • Seven new Weapons

Knowing this, what do you think about the DLC for Fire Emblem Warriors? Are you disappointed that no characters, not even protagonists like Roy, Ike, and Alm, are coming from several of the other Fire Emblem titles? Let us know in the comments below.

Our Verdict

Hey all! I've been a gamer since I was three. I'm one of those people with gaming so ingrained in them that watching my father play Super Mario 64 is actually my first memory I can recall. I love writing too! I'm writing an original fantasy series that takes place in another universe; it may take some inspiration from some of my favorite franchises. I've been a journalist for a few years, have worked on local and national teams, and have garnered experience assigning stories, editing, writing, interviewing, hosting a television series, running a YouTube channel, and doing other stuff that's more fun to mention in conversation. Bios can drag on. Anyway, I'm super stoked to be a part of the Gamnesia team! Thanks for having me!
