UPDATE: The Fire Emblem Warriors’ Awakening DLC will release on March 29th in Japan, which means that Switch and 3DS players will most likely receive the update on the evening of the 28th.

The final batch of Fire Emblem Warriors’ first season DLC, focusing on Fire Emblem Awakening, has finally been shown off in Famitsu.

For the first time we catch glimpses of new playable characters Owain, Tharja, and Olivia, casually murdering flocks of enemies in typical Warriors fashion. We also spot some new outfits — Cordelia appears in Dark Flier gear, Lissa is all dressed up as her sister Emmeryn, and Chrom dons kingly attire based on one of his many FE Cipher cards. They’ll all come with the usual allotment of History Mode maps, as well as new blessings and weapon skills.

Fortunately, we won’t have to wait long for the DLC to drop — Famitsu lists the release date as March 22nd, which is today in Japan. That means that the content will likely be available within 24 hours. Stay wired for confirmation of when the DLC releases sometime today or tomorrow.
