Key word: "New" 3DS.

Fire Emblem Warriors will be a multi-platform experience this fall.

The game announced during last week's Nintendo Switch reveal was announced to release this fall for both Switch and New 3DS consoles. An extended trailer was also shown with popular Fire Emblem characters appearing in the game.

I wqs surprised to see that it will be on 3DS too. Im glad it is New 3DS exc'usive. Hyrule Warriors should have been too

I think it's a questionable move to take a Switch game that could be an exclusive and make it available for a much more popular platform.  The Switch kind of needs all the help it can get.

My guess is because Fire Emblem has the largest fanbase it's ever had on the 3DS, Nintendo wants to milk that audience as much as they can.  Nintendo probably worries that Fire Emblems recent rise in popularity it got on the 3DS might drop to more niche levels again so might as well get as many sales from this fanbase because there's no guarantee Fire Emblem will ever be this popular on a system ever again.

Does this suggest that the Switch game could be priced at $40 since it'll be alongside the 3DS pricing?

KoeiTecmo does their musou as $60 for console/$40 for handheld on the PS4 / Vita, and Hyrule Warriors (Legends) did the same thing.

I will be getting the Switch version. I think it makes sense to be on both, Hyrule warriors was too

I might have been able to see $50 for the console version if it were a simultaneous Wii U and New 3DS release. With Switch, so far it seems smart to keep your expectations on the higher side of things. I'd be really surprised if it wasn't $60.
