Now Playing: Fire Emblem Warriors Teaser Trailer - Nintendo Switch Presentation

During its Switch livestream presentation, Nintendo rolled a teaser for the game, which is called Fire Emblem Warriors. It's in development at Koei Tecmo, the same developer responsible for Hyrule Warriors.

As with several other games, including the new Shin Megami Tensei, there wasn't any gameplay to be seen. A number of weapons are shown, as is the Shield of Seals. It wraps up with a look at a sword and the body of a character whose face isn't shown. You can watch the video above.

No release date for the game was announced. You can see all the confirmed Switch games here.
