Lyn announced for Fire Emblem Warriors (releases October 20)

Too little too late, Warriors. Lyn may be my favourite FE character but she's not enough to save what has otherwise been a very underwhelming and bland AF roster. Wouldn't be surprised if she was added solely to shut people up about the fact the roster is nothing but a 3ds lovefest guest starring Marth from the Super Smash Bros series.

That said, the Legends expansion might be able to change my mind.

Looks like the leak is real. The starting roster of this game is shit.
A-at least I have Celica.

I'm gonna wait until DLC

I really wanna know what their office was like when Lyn winning the polls came in. No way she'd be in the game if it wasn't for that, imo

The correct answer is to wait for the inevitable Legends expansion. It saves you more money even if it means you gotta wait.

Pretty much this. If they hadn't stated it was limited to only the 3 games early on I wouldn't see this in such a bad light. It reeks of them realising they were wrong and rushing to get characters people actually want in.

I'm still glad they are adding Lyn and probably other fan-favourite characters eventually but they should've been a lock from the moment the game was announced instead of adding every single main character from Awakening and Fates first. I'll hold off on purchasing until they do what they should've to begin with.

This is my stance as well. I'll take a wait and see approach but even with Lyn and Celica it's not enough for me.

Also if the leak is real there's a troubling lack of husbandos. Xander can only do so much :/

They said that "most characters" would be from 3 games not that all characters would be from them... Some people just assumed that they meant the original characters, although that always sounded like an odd reading of their statement.

If anything, what's weird is why they acted like Shadow Dragon was going to get comparable representation to Awakening and Fates only to leave it with only 3 characters, assuming the leak is the full line up.

Hope has been (slightly) restored. Hopefully when the game launches, there will be details of more additional characters outside the initial roster. If anything, this is our first confirmation of a FE character that isn't tied to the three series announced earlier.

Hopefully there will be more than just what has been "leaked"

Oh fuck yes I kind of wanted Lyn in this on one hand but then its another sword user guess we'll see, this matches the leaks so far right?
I'm torn because I don't care much for awakening and fate characters but Lyn is a personal fave. Will probably wait for a bit since there are other games of interest around that period.

Nah, the roster was chosen a while ago i bet.
They said in one of the Heroes related interviews they were surprised GBAFE did so well in the CYL poll in the first place, so I have suspicious feelings towards this still.
<.<

I really am surprised at no Azura though

Guess that leak's real then

Playable Celica will be neat

Still feels weird to not represent each entry or region with atleast one character tho

Sooo roster leak was real then.

Boring roster is boring, but I'm just glad Lyn and Lissa are in. Hopefully DLC will add some fan-favorites and much-needed variety.
