The rest of the characters will be composed mostly from the Awakening, Fates, and Shadow Dragon games.

Additional details provided by Gematsu’s coverage of the Famitsu article:
- Development is currently at 70 percent.
- Project was being planned before Famitsu’s collaboration Musou title survey
- First thing decided was ‘to do a Musou game that Fire Emblem fans would enjoy’
- There will be a huge fully-voiced script
- Protagonists are mainly from Fire Emblem Awakening, Fates, and Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light, so this won’t be a gathering of characters from the entire series.
- Not all characters from the Fire Emblem series were included, because if they had most of them would have a similar fighting style (sword)
- There are bond conversations with characters from across different titles
- There is no marriage, nor is there love as a result of becoming good friends
- Bond conversations are being prepared as support conversations. There is a large amount of text, including both serious and goofy conversations.
- Weapon Triangle and Class System exist in Fire Emblem Warriors
- High Strategy elements are in the game
- ‘Shield of Fire’ in this world has turned up from beyond space and time, although Koei Tecmo can’t make additional comments on that.
- Cavalier and other units that ride horses are designed for high mobility.
Fire Emblem Warriors is currently scheduled for a Q3 2017 release. With more details surfacing just before E3, is this a game that you are considering picking up in what is suddenly becoming a crowded holiday season for the Nintendo Switch?
