– The first thing that was decided was “to do a Musou game that Fire Emblem fans would enjoy”
– The weapon triangle, high strategy elements, and classes that are mainstay in the Fire Emblem series are in
– The reason all the protagonists from the Fire Emblem games are not being included is because if they did that, everyone would be using a sword
– You can switch characters while playing, so you’ll be able to control various weapons and classes of characters
– The number of playable characters is more than the first entry of any other Musou series collaboration
– Archers and magic users will be playable
– While Koei Tecmo can’t share details on the world yet, there is a “Shield of Fire” in this world that has tuned up from beyond space and time
– Units that ride a horse, such as the Cavalier, always fight on horse. They’re designed to have high mobility

– Shion and Lian are twins from the Kingdom of Aitriss
– The two are the children of Queen Yuana
– Shion: royal prince of the Kingdom of Aitriss

– Encourages his twin sister Lian to inherit the throne
– Lian: Shin’s older twin sister
– She’s clever and understanding of her own faults
– Lian has no desire to inherit the throne, so she encourages Shion to become king
– The two twins are voiced by actual siblings in the Japanese version
– After Shion and Lian’s father (the king) died of illness, the kingdom was without a ruler for a long period

– There will be bonus damage such as Pegasus Knights being weak to Archers
