Preview: Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes

Koei Tecmo’s ‘Warriors’ series has come a long way. What started off in 1997 as Dynasty Warriors, a hack-and-slash spin-off of their own turn-based strategy franchise Romance of the Three Kingdoms, has become something so much more. Dynasty Warriors ended up being so successful that it spawned its own set of spin-off spin-offs, eventually earning itself development partnerships with Nintendo to use two of their biggest RPG franchises: The Legend of Zelda and Fire Emblem.
