With both Fire Emblem Warriors and Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition being officially released on the Nintendo Switch, I’ve decided to compile a list of terms for both new players, and existing players, to refer to for deeper understanding of the games.
In this game glossary, everything from the UI, to the main gameplay, DLC, and more, have been clearly defined for your learning pleasure!
Since both games have more in common they they do apart, terms for both are included in the glossary below. [FEW] will be shown next to terms based from Fire Emblem Warriors, while [HW] will be shown for terms applying to Hyrule Warriors.
