Fire Emblem Warriors (JP) is an upcoming hack and slash game from Nintendo and Tecmo Koei for Nintendo Switch and New Nintendo 3DS. It combines the many worlds of Fire Emblem with Warriors gameplay and will feature many characters and locations from across the Fire Emblem series. It is currently set to release in Fall 2017.
Like previous Warriors titles, Fire Emblem Warriors is an action title Hack and Slash where you have to overcome numerous groups of enemies with characters from Fire Emblem.
The game incorporates Fire Emblem's weapon triangle meaning Axes are stronger against Lances, Lances are strong against Swords and Swords are strong against Axes. There doesn't seem to be a magic triangle or the secondary weapon triangle. Additionally, staves are just items and typical users have different weapons.
The game features two main campaign modes; the standard campaign with an original story focusing on the original characters for the game, Rowan and Lianna, and the History Mode, with a map resembling Fire Emblem games. The History Mode is similar to Hyrule Warriors's Adventure Mode with encounters with units being like exploring a new square. These maps will portray key battles in Fire Emblem games.

Characters will also unlock support conversations with high enough support level. Eventually, characters learns Skills with the bonding. Only 3 Skills can be equipped at a time.
