Bodes well for Fire Emblem Switch.
In all the news surrounding Nintendo hardware and software sales data today was the snippet of information released by Koei Tecmo this morning in their own earnings release- Fire Emblem Warriors, the hack and slash action game based on the Dynasty Warriors template that they made for Nintendo and Intelligent Systems’ Fire Emblem franchise, has managed to hit 1 million units worldwide in sales.
This is a remarkable result, because “musou” games (which is what the Dynasty Warriors style hack and slash games are called) generally don’t hit numbers that high. Ironically, one of the only other games of this style to hit that number in recent memory was also one based on a Nintendo property- Hyrule Warriors, which came out on the Wii U (and then the 3DS, with a Switch launch soon).
Fire Emblem Warriors is available now on the Nintendo Switch, as well as the New Nintendo 3DS.
