Nintendo have just announced that the newly released Fire Emblem Warriors will be getting its first free update on November 16, 2017 for both Nintendo Switch and Nintendo 3DS.

The new Fire Emblem Warriors update will include a new history map featuring main characters Rowan and Lianna, new costumes for the aforementioned characters, Armor Strike – a new weapon attribute allowing you to destroy armor, new blessings, and the ability to sell multiple weapons to vendors at the same time.

Fire Emblem Warriors Update

Nintendo is committed to bringing new content to Fire Emblem Warriors, and this free software update is a fun (and free!) first step. Starting in December, the first of three paid DLC packs will launch for the game, with the second and third packs launching in February and March, respectively.

A Season Pass, which includes all three DLC packs as they become available, can be purchased for $19.99. By purchasing the Season Pass for either the Nintendo Switch or New Nintendo 3DS version, you will also receive a bridal costume for Lucina. (The bridal costume can only be received by purchasing the Season Pass.) Each DLC pack adds three new playable characters, three new history maps, additional costumes, additional support conversations and additional weapons, and can also be purchased individually for $8.99 each.

Rocket Chainsaw reviewed Fire Emblem Warriors on Nintendo Switch and gave it 3.5 stars, and stating that “providing you can accept it as an action game with strategic elements rather than a full blown turn-based strategy title, Fire Emblem blends considerably well with the Warriors games.

The new Fire Emblem Warriors update will arrive on November 16, 2017.

Over the last couple of decades Creative Assembly have become known for one thing – giant strategy games that can easily consume your life. While these games are great for some, there is a large number of gamers that no longer, or never did, have the time to spend tens of hours on Total War campaigns. Creative Assembly have taken note of this and have teamed up with Wargaming to develop a new Total War game built around quicker playtimes and PvP combat, Total War: ARENA. I got the chance to see some of the game at PAX Aus 2017, while chatting with Creative Assembly’s Josh Williams and ...

I hadn’t thought of it much before playing Stifled, but it’s weird how ubiquitous the flashlight has become in horror games. I can remember a point, probably around the time of Silent Hill and Alone in the Dark: The New Nightmare where lighting effects had just barely reached the point for flashlights to be realistically incorporated into gameplay, and from then on its been a staple. Acting as your lifeline to navigate dark hallways and monster-infested areas, even literally becoming weaponised in Alan Wake, it’s hard to imagine a horror game without one. From Singapor...

Alongside Disneyland Adventures, Rush: A Disney-Pixar Adventure is another remaster of an Xbox 360 Kinect game for the current generation, with 4K and HDR added for Xbox One X. However, unlike Disneyland Adventures, it does also feature some additional content that wasn’t seen in the original release to reflect Pixar’s recent titles, although the end result is still a fairly middling family-friendly adventure. Rush: A Disney-Pixar Adventure revolves around a fictional theme park/playground called Pixar Park. After creating your own hyper-cute/Pixar-ised child character, you can...

Lucky’s certainly a weird fox, mostly because he always seems out of time and place. First, Lucky’s Tale premiered as an Oculus-exclusive game, showcasing how VR tech could be used for a non first-person platforming experience – which arguably goes against what you want from a VR experience. Nevertheless, it was popular enough for Microsoft to see something in the franchise and snap up Lucky for the console exclusive Super Lucky’s Tale, now non-VR on Xbox One. Releasing alongside the Xbox One X, it’s again an odd choice given that as a gentle 3D platformer, i...

For the last few generations of consoles, the game has basically remained the same. Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo would release their entry into the great console marketplace, and let it thrive or flop, potentially revising the hardware to be slimmer towards the mid-point or end-point of its life-cycle. But this generation, things are different. Both Sony and Microsoft are launching significant hardware revisions, immensely boosting the power of their base consoles, while still playing the same software. Sony beat Microsoft to the punch with the PS4 Pro last year, but Microsoft have taken their...

Disneyland Adventures is a remaster of a six-year old Kinect game, originally released for the Xbox 360, then known as Kinect Disneyland Adventures. Now on Xbox One, the re-release has come out very close to the release of the Xbox One X, due to its new 4K and HDR support, as well as the ability to play without a Kinect and just using a controller. Without Microsoft’s at-the-time vaunted camera, there wasn’t much reason to pick up Disneyland Adventures, but has the game found new life on the Xbox One X? The immediate charm of Disneyland Adventures comes from the recreation of...

Today PC peripheral giant Razer has officially unveiled their long rumoured entrant into the smart phone market with what they are simply calling Razer Phone.
