Fire Emblem Warriors recently joined the likes of games such as Hyrule Warriors that takes a franchise and gives it the Dynasty Warriors treatment. There will be paid DLC that will start to roll out in December, but next week players will be seeing a free update on November 16th for both the Switch and 3DS versions of the game. The update will add a new history map featuring Rowan and Lianna, a new costume for each, Armor Strike (a new weapon attribute that deals with destroying armor and causing a Broken Armor state), new blessings to aid players in battle, and the ability to sell multiple weapons at once. While these seem like just minor updates, it is nice to see Nintendo rolling out a few minor updates for free instead of just doing the paid DLC. For those looking to get the DLC, you can purchase a season pass for $19.99 that will include all three DLC packs (releasing in December, February, and March) and you'll also receive a bridal costume for Lucina. Each DLC pack adds three new playable characters, three new history maps, new costumes, and additional support conversations and weapons. Each pack can also be purchased separately for $8.99 each.

Nintendo is committed to bringing new content to Fire Emblem Warriors, and this 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.
