While the gameplay is similar to the large-scale battles of the Dynasty Warriors series, Fire Emblem Warriors does incorporate a few of the series' strategy RPG elements, such as issuing tactical commands to your troops, and the Weapons Triangle system that determines how effective your attacks are to certain foes.
