As most of you would already no doubt know, Nintendo held a massive event revealing many new details and an abundant amount of games for their upcoming Nintendo Switch console. Along with this were an assortment of titles coming from KOEI Tecmo. And today we can share information about them all.
First up is Fire Emblem Warriors, developed in the same way as Hyrule Warriors, this time the slashings will be within the vast universe of Fire Emblem. Not much is known about the game so far, and only a small Teaser was shown (see below), but what information we do have is that there will be a Nintendo Direct dedicated to Fire Emblem on 18th January, which includes this title (among others, possibly the mobile title). We will have much more to show and share then, and finally have some juicy details to get our hands on.
Expected arrival Holiday 2017.
Next up is a bundle from Square-Enix and KOEI Tecmo, the Dragon Quest Heroes series! Though not just the first, the second will also be included along with a completely revamped and improved battle system and features exclusive to the Nintendo Switch version. It is still up in arms if this title will make it’s way to the West, considering we have only seen the first title on PS4, and how notorious Square-Enix is with withholding Dragon Quest titles. But it will be an amazingly fun game none the less, and with the Nintendo Switch abolishing region locking, you can just import it in the end anyway! See below for new gameplay and trailer for the upcoming bundled title!
The title will launch alongside the Nintendo Switch March 3rd in Japan.
Lastly, KOEI Tecmo showed off both Nobunaga’s Ambition: Sphere of Influence – Ascension and Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIII are ports coming to the Nintendo Switch. No doubt there will be touch interactivity added considering how the Nintendo Switch is used and designed, which should hopefully make for an interesting way to play these Strategy behemoths. We will share more information soon on release dates and such as they come.
That’s it for now! What do you think of the revealed titles coming from KOEI Tecmo? Which one do you want to get your hands on? Let us know! And as always, expect to see full sections for these games on our website soon!

With the massive gaming event behemoth known as E3 coming up next week, it’s no wonder we will start to see rumours, early announcements and with this juicy tidbit an early leak. Hyrule Warriors: All Stars will be coming to a Nintendo 3DS near you most likely this year.
The game isn’t just a simple port of the Wii U version either (which would be impossible due to the sheer hardware difference of the two machines). The game, known as “All Stars” is in reference to the game having the entire cast of Hyrule Warriors (including the DLC characters) along with even more new ones added. Confirmed so far are the addition of Tetra and King of Red Lions from Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker. It is most likely more will be revealed later in the year (or even at E3!).
The game also features gameplay additions quite like those from the Samurai Warriors Chronicles series, where you can use the touch screen to instantaneously switch between characters on the battlefield, allowing for a much more hectic and hardcore slashing experience.
It also seems quite like most portable editions of KOEI Tecmo games, that it will be ripping cut-scenes directly from the Wii U iteration of the game. Along with other things such as the battlefield shown being Hyrule Field (the first battle in the Wii U game). There has also been confirmation on connectivity between the 3DS version of the game and the Wii U version of the game, so far showcasing that you can connect your 3DS game to the Wii U version to transfer over any / all the new characters featured in the All Stars version. It remains to be seen if these characters will be appearing as DLC or their own Pack’s on the Wii U eShop.
Check out the trailer attached and make up your own minds, but it is looking to be a solid version of an extremely good Warriors game, just on the go! Be sure to keep an eye out for more information during Nintendo’s Digital Event next week at E3!
