Fire Emblem Warriors might stand as one of the greatest Musou collaborations to hit the market. Great care was taken in incorporating both gameplay systems to create a thrilling and fun game to play. Yet it is so upsetting that where the combat rises above expectations, the menus felt like an afterthought. While that is annoying, Fire Emblem Warriors is still a hell of a time.

Fire Emblem Warriors charges headlong into battle with assured confidence, bolstered with a roster of heroes that effortlessly translate to Dynasty Warriors’ lust for over-the-top action. Your quest to save the kingdom of Aytolis may not find similar strength, but History Mode is resolute in wanting to captivate your attention for hours on end. For that, those that long to rack up ludicrous kill counts in the midst of battle will savour the thrills that this Nintendo Switch exclusive presents.

Easy to play with a satisfying, if over-simplistic, battle system but Fire Emblem Warriors does a good job of balancing a game that can be played by newcomers to Dynasty Warriors-style games, veterans of Fire Emblem or newcomers to both.

Fire Emblem Warriors offers a solid hack and slay expierence and performance on the New 3DS. Even if the story won't surprise you that much, the solid cast of the series will. The mix between these two very different genres is well made and fans from both sides will get great time out of it.

Fire Emblem Warriors may not fully please hardcore fans but it’s great for those new to the series. And while it may not be perfect in its execution, the charming cast, addictive gameplay and various modes, is reason enough to sink plenty of hours into this game.

Fire Emblem Warriors is a terrific experience, but the story isn’t up to par with what fans might expect.

While the story isn’t as tight as you’d expect from a major Fire Emblem game the over the top shonen style battles and mixed cast definitely put together a fine show. I can definitely suggest the game to any fan of either series.

This is a decent spin on the musou game formula, and some elements from each respective series blend quite well together.If you’re in the mood to carve up hundreds of Pegasus knights while jamming out to the main theme of Fire Emblem this is the game for you. That being said, if you’re looking for the older games to get any screen time or relevance you will have to look elsewhere.

Take the slow, measured, turn-based combat of Fire Emblem and throw it in a blender with a thousand enemies and a carton of Red Bull
