Fire Emblem Warriors director discusses the decision to add in Navarre, Minerva, and Linde as DLC

The following comes from a Nintendo Dream interview with director Hiroya Usuda, as translated by NintendoEverything...

ND: What are the reasons for choosing Navarre, Minerva, and Linde as playable characters?

HU: Navarre already appeared as an NPC, so there’s no reason to not make him playable.

For the next one, the names of the three Pegasus sisters [Whitewings] were also mentioned, but we already have a lot of Pegasus Knights here, so we went with their leader Minerva. And we also had another reason to add an Axe character to balance the weapon types. We added Minerva because she’s coming from Shadow Dragon, wields an Axe, and we can also add a Wyvern Rider by including her.

And for the third one we thought of a magic tome user, and we also talked about Nyna as a curveball. But we picked Linde since we can reproduce magic spells from the original games like the Aura. We also had Jagen, Draug, Gordin, Merric, Abel, and Cain as other candidates, but when we think of weapon balance, we couldn’t pick just one from them, so we ended up omitting the Altean characters.

[Quests] A new set of Special Quests is now available: “Grand Hero Battles”. Clearing those allow you to get some bonus Orbs and a [3 ★] version of Zephiel. (available until March 18th)
