All of the already known + Caeda, Lyn, Celica, Anna and Tiki.

lock if 3 shadow dragon characters are something to be mad at

Caeda seemed like the most likely Shadow Dragon pick, anyway.

I'd be a little surprised to see Lyn make it without Ike, though. Figured if they strayed from the core 3 games it would at least include him.

Lyn isn't from any of the games in FE Warriors tho

Neither is Celica. They did say they would MOSTLY be pulling from Shadow Dragon, Awakening, and Fates, but not exclusively, so I imagine Celica and Lyn were two crowd favorites (or in Celica's case, sort of new since she was in a recently released game) that they just included.

No Tharja considering her popularity would be weird though.

Basically. Valentia is super recent. Lyn's popularity in FEH is huge.

I kind of figured Roy, Ike, Alm, and Celica all had a shot since they have amiibos and thus could have connectivity (plus they're arguably some of the more visible FE characters by virtue of having amiibo). Still would have expected Ike since he seems the most popular of those four.

Ike and Lyn won a popularity contest conducted for FE Heroes, so that's probably their justification for Lyn. Anna is Anna, and Caeda's more or less the most obvious non-Marth Shadow Dragon character.

Pretty sure that Ike exclusion is due to them possibly doing a tellius dlc pack as the first one. Heck i would not be surprised that lyn is already in due to them deciding to do no other characters of that game.

So all awakening and fates characters sans Marth, hah...OKAY.

I actually kind of like this better than my expectation, which was Marth, Caeda, and 2-3 more SD characters, but yeah, this makes the whole "Awakening, Fates, and SD" focus less accurate. If you count Tiki as more of a general series character since she's in other games, the SD cast is...two.

Good point. Time to start mourning Eliwood and Hector...

Screams fan-made. This isn't Mario; don't see why Nintendo would use sprites from previous games on their boxart.

There are new ones here, and they've been using sprites on promotional materials for Fire Emblem games and merch for a while now.
 
Fake as fuck

With the announced history mode there is 0% chance we see anyone who's not from shadow dragon/awakening/fates since they'll be able to sell dlc packs for the various fe titles not included with 3-4 characters and the ability to do that game's history mode.

Yeah, a lot of the collector's edition stuff and advertising in Japan has used the sprites.

That being said, the Lissa sprite there is using a staff and not an axe, like in the game. Has her sprite shown up in any of the official stuff yet? I'd think they'd draw her with an axe...

Seems a bit to elaborate to be fake, especially with it on an online store.

I'm on Team Real, but I'm a bit surprised by the lack of Tharja. Also having Celica & no Alm is a bit weird.

Sakura shows her with a staff and not a bow as well

This would be strange for a final roster. Lyn's inclusion but Ike's exclusion would say to me that FE7 will not get a DLC pack but FE9/10 will.

EDIT: People were suspecting 25 characters based on the character cards, right? Would this add up to 25 if you included the gender swapped avatars? Without thinking too carefully, I'm thinking yes.
